Already they are considering a 4th, with Sparrow perhaps headed for Atlantis.  Didn't we just see Feature Animation tackle that not more than 5 years ago?  Impatience, impatience, impatience...

Hey, I posted a review on the film. Here's what I thought about Keira Knightley's performance.

Keira Knightly gives a flat performance. Much like Jessica Biel, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan, Knightly is a B-level actress in the A-list spotlight (even if I do like E! Network's news at 7 p.m., can't they focus on someone other than these actresses). In all honestly, she was adequate AND watchable in the first POTC, but I saw some wear and tear in Dead Man's Chest. This time, her limits as an actress are on display here.

All Knightly's doing here is giving her windpipes an exercise with god-awful overacting, share godawful chemistry with Bloom (which results in an unintentionally hilarious scene that belongs in a soap opera), and deliver a Braveheart-type speech that's supposed to be a rabble-rouser; frankly, it's another example of how much overcompensation she's doing. After sitting through Knightly's tic-ridden performance, which has the gonads to put emotional drama into a film that's basically a Bruckheimer cheesefest (with Depp, Bloom, and Rush delivering the honest-to-goodness goods), I was about to bash my head in.

I'm not hating on her or anything (she was good in Pride and Prejudice), but she's rattled by brains in the POTC films. I don't know, but after seeing her make Tom Cruise look like a believable actor, I'm smelling...Razzies?
You think you know, but you have no idea.

PIRATES #1 was good. PIRATES #2 was OK (but much, much, MUCH too long). PIRATES #3 I have not seen, but I may rent it on video when it comes out (because on DVD, I can pause when I have to go the bathroom or want to get some more popcorn). But is #3 worth the rental? Is it a definitive Worst Picture? Should I ignore it?

Response from Head RAZZberry: While it is every bit as overlong, overloud and "under-logical" as its immediate predecessor, I must admit that, given the other drek Hollywood's been pumping out this year (See our COMPLETE LIST of 2007 TITLES) PIRATES 3: AT WIT'S END is not likely to be among the final five when we announce our 28th Annual RAZZIE Awards nominees next January...

Disney is probably the worst film company right now. Walt Disney was one of the greatest filmakers of all time, his Snow White captured the imagination of moviegoers, everywhere for all time. But Disney would probably roll in his grave now, seeing what's happened to his company. Okay, the Disney/Pixar films are good, (except the Food Safety Video a.k.a. 'Ratouille' OH I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU SPELL THE FILM TITLE!?!).

First there was the teribbly lame humor in "Hannah Montana" (and a Hannah Montana movie is in the works according to Wikipedia), then the stereotypes in "High School Musical" (Disney probably never dreamed of doing crap like that!)  and finally the theatrical release of "High School Musical 3" in 2008, and "HSM 4" in 2009 -- all definitive worst pictures. What are they going to do next, Retirement Home Musical? Got some good lyrics for a musical like that!

A ninety year-old Soy singing:
Did someone see my hearing aids?

A ninety ear old Sharp-gay singing:
Did someone see my dentures?

A ninety year Shy-an singing:
SHUT UP! I'M TRYING TO SLEEP!

Or something like that...fight the power!

But it does look like John Lassiter may be starting to turn Feature Animation around with his insistance on high-quality story above everything else: Several of the projects slated for release in the near future--particularly The Princess and the Frog (or whatever the title ends up being) should be good if done properly (although you do still wish Howard Ashman were still around, so we could be a little more confident).  If they gave Lassiter all the marbles over Bob Iger--come on Roy, if you ran the site to get rid of Eisner for a year and a half and essentially succeeded in the end, surely you can do the same for his old-wine-in-a-new-bottle prime minister--perhaps the whole thing could turn around. 

Guess we'll just have to wait and see...

In my opinion, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are BOTH strong Razzie-contenders.

Incidentally, If moviewizguy really believes that this series was ever intended to be a trilogy, I'd be happy to provide a lengthy list of contradictions between the first film and the other two that perhaps he can explain for us. In fact, there were some puzzling contradictions between the second and third films that would be difficult enough to explain, especially since they were made concurrently.

Moviewizguy, does two movie sequels being realeased four years apart ring a bell to you?

I wonder why this film is put in the same forums as Bratz and Awake?

I just found this film confusing and a little underwhelming, but it was necessary to end the story started by Pirates 2.

Speaking about a 3rd Pirates Sequel, it'll probably be straight to DVD (like any unnecessary Disney sequels).
Seltzerberg is back?

OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!

I'm glad this movie is at least being debated.  Although, yes, it was not as bad as Good Luck Chuck, Bratz or Awake, or for that matter, I Know Who Killed Me, Daddy Day Camp, Are We Done Yet?, Revolver or Epic Movie, there were severe problems with this movie that seem to characterize all the major blockbuster sequels this year.  Of particular concern to me was the mishmash that passed for a script, producing a plot you'd be hard-pressed to describe in one short sentence, and Keira Knightley's acting, which kept me saying "yeah, right" every time I saw her on the screen.  And this doesn't even begin to address "sequel-itis", the problem that very few sequels match the superiority of the originals. 

Yes, I've read that Elliott and Rosso were writing the 3rd installment as it was being filmed, and in this case, the movie shows that rushed attempt.  Saving this movie was how many things were done well.  The directing was superb, Verbinski taking what could have been as bad as any of the movies listed above and, one scene at a time, wringing out the best performances with the best filming and the best special effects he could get.  And most of the other actors gave superb performances, such as Nighy, Depp, Rush, Davenport and Chow.

But I don't think, just because other movies are worse than any particular movie, that we shouldn't at least go over the problems of that particular movie.    If anything, it keeps us on our toes.

If they shoot Pirates 4, I feel it will go to the big screen before it goes to DVD.

Keira Knightley for Worst Supporting Actress, definitely. Even the monkey and the parrot out-acted her.

Pirates 3 is gonna lose to Transformers.  Both movies may be weak if not bad, but the special effects in Transformers were above and beyond anything.
