As if I didn't get enough of pirates during the festival, we decided to go to see a midnight showing of 'Dead Man's Chest' tonight. Sue and Mitch went along, and we started out on 82nd where ALL FOUR of their shows were sold out. So then we went downtown and got in a little late but found four spots together. (I predict this movie is going to have a monster opening weekend by the looks of it.)
Anyway, the best news about the new movie: Stellan Skarsgaard plays Bootstrap Bill! I had no idea, so I was delightfully surprised (as I absolutely love him and plan on featuring his Lancaster Merrin in my next Colin story, if I ever write it).
The special effects and stunts were marvelous. I was laughing out loud at a couple points. Once again the movie is L-O-N-G, but it was mucho eye candy. The fangirls will love it!
We were so successful with our Pirate Rendezvous this year, and next year we're planning on having six ships if we can get them -- and the third movie opens on Memorial Day Weekend, right before we do! So, perfection.ARRR!
