Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

even if the movie dissapoints, expect teenage girls to see it over and over and over a la Titanic.
Isn't that kinda, you know, a sexist comment?

well, it's kinda true. Johnny Depp orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are gonna draw in an insane amount of teenage girls.

I've heard the reactions to the filmw ere mixed. Some saying it was the best ever, other frustrated over the ending.

Its legs will still be huge, because this has the "Titanic" factor. It has the teenage girl demographic. And the fact that their raging hormones will make Disney an insane amount of money is kind of weird. sexist, sure. but weird.

As an absolute aside, wouldn't it be great timing to get a good transfer and decent editon of the classic feature, Blackbeard's Ghost on DVD? And maybe Treasure Planet's 2 DVD since we're on a pirates theme!

You know, sometimes sexist comments are in fact....true. Not saying this one is. But sometimes they are.....true.

Its reported to have the No 1. Opening Day takings at an estimated $55,500,000. Beating Star Wars Ep III I believe according to Box Office Mojo.

Good! Spider-man doesn't deserve its position there. Neither does Titanic as Highest Grossing Film of All Time.

That doesn't mean ALL the girls seeing this are Depp/Bloom fans - take me, for example. I like the first one becuase it's a good movie, not for the guys.

(I think I'm the only girl on the planet who thinks Johnny Depp isn't hot...Although Bloom is good-looking...;))

Hehe. Seriously though. He was a good comic book character. But he should have stayed that way. i must admit Spidey 2 was better than Spidey 1. Batman Begins was good. I enjoyed that. So was Superman Returns. I enjoyed that also. The Incredibles is my no 1. Superhero film.
