This weekend is another roll out for a big, big blockbuster and a little sidekick film. Johnny Depp is back to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in the third, and supposedly final, installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Along with it comes a creepy looking film about bugs and drugs that I don’t think I’m brave enough to sit through. If you aren’t interested in either of these, check out the new DVD releases for this week. Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by Wild Bluff Media this week!
Here are all your movie details & trailers for this weekend, May 25 - 27.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
Director: Gore Verbinski
Starring: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Stellan Skarsgard, Geoffrey Rush
Genre: Action/Adventure, Adaptation and Sequel
Duration: 2 hr. 45 min.
Rated: PG-13 for intense sequences of action/adventure violence and some frightening images.
Plot: As the threat to pirates-at-large near its climax, Will Turner (Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Knightley) form an alliance with surprise accomplice Captain Barbossa (Rush) and sail to the Far East in order to save Jack Sparrow from the mysterious afterworld known as Davey Jones’s Locker.
My Take: Wow, this is a long one at almost 3 hours. I certainly hope it’s better than the last third installment movie I saw already this year. I definitely anxious to see this one as I really enjoyed the other ones. I’m interested in seeing how they’re going to work around Depp getting eaten by the Leviathan at the end of the second one. Oh oh oh, and Keith Richards showing up in this one should be hilarious considering you can’t understand a single word that man says these days.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End Movie Trailer:
Director: William Friedkin
Starring: Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon, Harry Connick Jr.
Genre: Drama, Thriller and Adaptation
Duration: 1 hr. 42 min.
Rated: R for some strong violence, sexuality, nudity, language and drug use.
Plot: A lonely waitress with a tragic past, Agnes rooms in a run-down motel, living in fear of her abusive, recently paroled ex-husband. But when Agnes begins a tentative romance with Peter, an eccentric, nervous drifter, she starts to feel hopeful again–until the first bugs arrive.
My Take: Holy crap this movie looks creepy. I can’t tell for sure, but this is about people seeing “bugs” under their skin from drug use, right? They don’t come right out and say it though, but that’s gotta be it, right? Otherwise it’s actually a horror film about really nasty bugs. Either way, I am NOT seeing this one, but maybe you’re not as much of a scaredy-cat as I am.
