I just got back from watching "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End". Quite frankly, I was very disappointed with it. I thought the second Pirates movie, "Dead Man's Chest", was a considerable let-down from the first movie, but I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt because it was obviously the first part of a two-parter. However, now that I have seen the third part, I wish they would have stuck with just the first movie.
The story was too convoluted and the plot too unfocused to really follow successfully. Yes, there were a few revelations, and many surprises, but it just seemed too forced. However, I will freely admit that the final battle was worth watching, but it was too little, too late to save the movie.
Still, the day was quite enjoyable, even if it was topped off with a disappointing movie.
I met Gayle for lunch, which is something we can't do normally since we don't work in the same town. Then I took off for the northeastern side of Indianapolis and hit some of my favorite stores. Despite many temptations (including pricing the parts needed to build a new computer), I didn't buy anything. I then went down to the area of the movie theater, thinking the movie started around 7. I was wrong, it started at 7:55, so I had some time to kill. So I hit a couple of my other favorite stores while waiting, and this time, I couldn't resist temptation completely. I picked up a used copy of "National Treasure" for $6. (And speaking of National Treasure, I am looking forward to the sequel due out later this year.)
