So, you should know by now that I am a big Disney fan. I’m actually not usually a big fan of the live action stuff they do- it’s normally stuff targeted to tweens, but the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have been an exception. They are a lot of fun, and I have loved them.
So, on opening weekend of the newest movie “At World’s End” I went to see the Thursday evening early preview that they offered. I must say, that night I liked the movie, but I didn’t love it. It was fun and action packed, but it was a little hard to follow. The plot was very complicated and the movie was very long.
In the following weeks and read and heard a lot of people talk about some of the details of the movie. I found out that I actually missed a lot on the first viewing. So, I decided to give it another try. The guys in our Community Group all went out together to see it, so I got to see it a second time.
On the second viewing, my view of the movie completely changed. The complicated plot made sense, so I just got to sit back and enjoy the movie instead of worrying about putting all the pieces together. So, I really think that this is a movie that you have to see at least twice to really appreciate it. the special effects are amazing, the acting is really good, there is some beautiful cinematography and it’s just fun. I plan to go see it a third time when it come to our dollar theater.
Anyway, if you saw the movie and didn’t really love it, try watching it again. You might find that it’s a movie you really enjoy.
