That's a Lot of Doubloons...

Pirates Reaches $332M Worldwide -

Well, there you have it. The world loves it's pirates - unless they're actually pirating stuff, apparently. Anyway, that's a lot of money for an opening weekend for a film that got some lukewarm reviews at best and followed a rather dud of a sequel. But then, it is the end of a trilogy, so even I want to see how it plays out, but I think I'll wait a bit.

Was contemplating going to either Pirates, Shrek, or Spidey today with a friend, but when we got to the theatre, there was barely any parking and we just knew the place would be packed. Since we both hate crowds, we spent some time in the bookstore across from the theatre and grabbed a pizza instead. Plus, I got two hardcover noir/crime books for a total of ten bucks. After some of the lackluster reviews for these "big 3" movies, I think our money and time was spent in a better way today...

I went to see Spiderman 3 on Friday night, at the latest showing they had. The lineups for Pirates were huge, but the theatre for Spiderman 3 was almost empty.

Depending on the theatre, it might be worth asking the ticket person how busy a certain movie is. People may not be lining up for the one you want to see. :-)

Anyway, Spiderman 3 was ok, but no great shakes. A couple "yes!" moments, but overall, it was average. You won't be disappointed if you wait for DVD.

DVD it is then. Thanks for the update. Guess I'll just be waiting for Transformers and Die Hard 4. The month of three-quels hasn't exactly enticed me to go to the theatre.
