Last night, I went to the midnight showing of Pirates of the Caribbean with Barb and Deana.

It was godawful. Okay, the movie is based on a book that has NOTHING to do with the Pirates franchise, and they took the novel and threw the POTC characters into it. From my understanding, the book is not so bad (according to my coworker who read the entire thing in one night). But the incorporation into POTC? ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. This movie was so bad, even Hans Zimmer couldn't give two shits about it. The score was poorly recycled themes from the previous movies, with a tiny bit of Spanish guitar added in. Now, I love me some Hans Zimmer, but this was half-assed crap. (Also, Providence- worst British naval crew ever. Tripping all over each other when called to the guns, taking too long to load. I am disappoint.)

There were so many craptastic things about the movie, it's easier to list what wasn't crap. So, in reverse order, the least crappy things about the movie:

3. Fuck, I can't even think of a third thing.

2. Barbossa. I mean, it's hard to go wrong with Barbossa, but he felt like the only thing holding the movie together. Well, him, and a side storyline involving-

1. The number one least-crappy (and actually REALLY AWESOME) thing about the movie, which was the mermaids. )
