Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

To continue my Pirates marathon, I watched Dead Man’s Chest. I’m watching the series again because I can’t remember how William Turner got cursed. The movie has Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Bill Nighy, Jonathan Pryce, and Stellan Skarsgård.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, William Turner and Elizabeth are arrested. In order to be free, William has to go to Jack Sparrow to get his compass. Jack makes an offer to William too. To find a key and a chest. The key and chest belong to Davy Jones. William gets to see his father. In the end, Jack “dies” and they lost Davy Jones’ heart. They pledge to find Jack Sparrow.

I forgot they lose the heart. Next week I’m watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

Troy

After reading The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry, I wanted to watch Troy again. I never read The Iliad. I was actually confused what the Iliad was about. My mother refreshed my memory with it. Since Troy is based on the Illiad, I decided to watch it while Chris was here. It has Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, and Diane Kruger in it. Big Warning: there is lots of violence (of course since it’s about a war) and one sad part. Troy is about the war between the Greeks and Troy. It actually started because Paris was in love

Troy is about the war between the Greeks and Troy. It actually started because Paris was in love with Helen who was married to a king. Paris decides to kidnap Helen and make her Helen of Troy. The king not only wants Helen back but also have Troy for himself.

Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales

Chris did come down this past weekend. We did see the movie on Saturday. It does have a scene at the credits.

In this fifth movie, Henry Turner tells his dad William Turner that he will find the Trident of Poseidon so he can break his curse. Later on, he also searches for Jack Sparrow for help to find it. A woman who is accused of being a witch (she’s not) also helps in the quest.

This was a great movie. My mother was saying she heard it was the last movie. But I wasn’t convinced after seeing it so I looked up to see if there will be a 6th movie and there will be one coming out in a few years.

Children of Men

Yesterday I did see the movie Children of Men. I didn’t know that it is based on a novel by P.D. James. I looked to see Overdrive has the book and they don’t. It has Clive Owen, Michael Caine, Julianne Moore, Pam Ferris, and Clare-Hope Ashitey in it.

Warning: this is a very sad movie and it has lots of violence in it.

The reason I wanted to see this movie was because that same article that talked about Idiocracy being what the future with Trump in it mentioned Children of Men. The movie is set in 2027. Children of Men is about a guy named Theo. He is asked by an ex-girlfriend to get papers for a girl. He does and he finds out the girl is pregnant which is a big thing in a world where women haven’t been able to get pregnant. She does give birth to a baby girl. Theo does get her to safety.

The movie does leave you hanging. I did like the movie even though it was sad. Next week I’m doing a Pirates of the Caribbean marathon. I’m hoping to see the new Pirates movie soon.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Since I will be away this weekend (going to the mountains), I decided to watch next week’s movie. I watched Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. I had read the book last year. My mother’s boyfriend (now ex) kept asking when I was going to see the movie. Now I have seen it. It has Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, and Madalyn Horcher in it.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

The book is by Lee Child. It is the 18th book in the Jack Reacher book series. The book and movie are about Jack Reacher sets out to go to DC to see the officer he talked to on the phone. He was wanting to take her out to dinner. The officer is head of the unit he used to work at. When he gets there, he finds out that she had been replaced by another officer. This new officer tells him that Susan was locked up for taking a bribe. The new officer also tells Jack that he is restated to the military and he has two charges against him. Those charges ended up being false charges. The bribe charge was also false. Jack and Susan do some crimes for a good reason so they can find out the truth. In the end, the bad guys kill themselves and the false charges are dropped.

There were some differences between the book and movie. Jack meets Sam at a diner in the book. The end of the book they find in an opium house in New Orleans.

I still don’t like Tom Cruise. And yes, Jack Reacher is supposed to be taller. In two weeks, I’m watching Children of Men.

Idiocracy

Yesterday I watched Idiocracy. I had heard a lot about the movie and kept wanting to see it, but I kept forgetting the name of it. I read a blog post on what movies are going to be like Trump presidency and Idiocracy was on that list. So I decided to finally see the movie. It has Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, Terry Crews, Anthony ‘Citric’ Campos, and David Herman in it.

Idiocracy is about a guy named Joe Bauers. He is in the military. He is asked to do a top secret mission. He is asked to be frozen for one year. They also asked a prostitute to do the mission. The man over the project gets arrested for being part of the prostitution ring. So the prostitute and Joe wakes up 500 years later where everyone is stupid. Joe really wanted to go home back to the correct era, but he later decides to stay. My mother says this is a guy movie and a movie to get high on. No, I didn’t laugh. I think it’s sad. Most likely that will be

My mother says this is a guy movie and a movie to get high on. No, I didn’t laugh. I think it’s sad. Most likely that will be like in the future. The Disney movie Wall-E also shows what the future would be like. Tomorrow I’m watching Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
