Two Movies

Pirates of the Caribbean 3 At World's End: *** Good

The latest in the Pirates movies was the most entertaining to me.  People complained that there were too many Pirate leaders, but that didn't bother me.  I laughed frequently at this one.  Johnny Depp is a treat to watch.  When Keith Richards comes on screen you wonder if he is wearing makeup or if he looks that old on his own :-).

The only weakness from my point of view is the love story between Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, which is kind of boring and not very funny.

Worth a visit to the theater.

Evening: *** Good

I liked this one much better than the critics.  The acting was good.  The story wasn't as confusing as the critics say it was.  It was thought provoking - you get to decide for yourself if the Harris character really was the love of her life or if she was just a morphine-crazed old woman.  You don't know if the daughters will live happily ever after or not (I think not).

The story is about a woman on her death bed, her flashbacks, her daughters, her lovers.

Worth a visit to the theater.  At the end there was clapping in the theater.  Note:  the audience was predominantly women.
