Okay, more questioning on the pirates of the Caribbean front, Helen Rob
were discussing it and Helen had a different opinion about my question 3, I like nitpicking films, it doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it, if you don't like nitpicks don't read on:...
She didn't think that Bootstrap Bill was under the curse, she thinks that he didn't condone what they did to Captain Jack Sparrow and wasn't involved in the theft, I think that's what she's saying, so he got the gold off them, but wasn't cursed by it. I don't understand why his blood would be needed in that case though. However she didn't think it was the blood of all the people that had stolen that was needed, in fact she pointed out that the non-dead pirates didn't have blood. However, I thought they talked about cutting their own throats again, I'm not sure, if anyone knows then Email me. If he wasn't still alive why did they need his blood? They had to repay the blood to lift the curse. That seems a bit mean really that it didn't lift off the individuals that had put their coins back. If their blood was going in, maybe somehow they could bleed when moonlight wasn't upon them, then technically it shouldn't have lifted should it as I didn't Jack get cursed by stealing one of them? His coin went back in, but I didn't see his blood go in. I don't know I'm confused.
I once owned a dog that was smarter than you Mark.
Yesterday I saw Pirates of the Caribbean (incidentally if you can be bothered to wait while it loads this is quite a fun site).
Johnny Depp was fantastic, such excellent overacting. Rather worryingly I even liked Orlando Bloom. I suppose there's nothing wrong with Orlando Bloom, it's just that the whole "oooh, isn't Orlando great" thing that happened with LOTR irritated me and I didn't really like his Legolas anyway.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the film, though there were a couple of points that I wasn't sure on, highlight to read:
- If Will didn't know that his Dad was a pirate, how did he explain the medallion? What did he think it was?
- Why was Will so good at swordmaking and fighting? Why did he have this thing against pirates if he didn't think his Dad was one? Did I miss a bit where he knows pirates killed his Dad? Or did he really know his Dad was a pirate but was in denial?
- If Bootstrap Bill Turner had a cannon tied to him and was dropped to the bottom of the ocean, then wouldn't he have had time in the 10 years since to get himself untied and back to the surface, I'm assuming he wouldn't be dead since he must be under the curse too. Or were they saying they blew him up, I thought they just sank him. I guess if they chained him very well he wouldn't ever get free and he was probably completely lost to them so they didn't want to search underwater for ever. So I guess it kind of makes sense, but you'd think that Will might decide to try to look for him rather than just give him up for dead and reverse the curse.
