Went to see Pirates 5. Expectations were very low after 3 (I didn’t bother to see 4 and I regret nothing). I was very pleasantly surprised. There was still some bullshit, like the thing with the guillotine. Never happen. The gross sharks could have been cut and the movie would have lost nothing. But aside from the bullshit, it was a good action/adventure, I liked the banter, and they made me like Barbosa even more than I did before, so good on Geoffrey Rush.
I really wanted to tell you about what happened before the movie. I went to get my mom a bottle of water ($5 by the way) and when I came back, the lower half of the screen was black and white snow. It was making my mom dizzy and no one was doing anything, so I went up to the wall at the back and asked the girl sitting there if I might stand on the arm of her chair for a second. She was so nice about it and I just climbed right up and knocked on the window to alert someone to fix things.
Right after I knocked, the screen switched over to the commercials before the previews. People exclaimed mildly in happiness and I felt pretty good, so as I was getting down, I said to the girls sitting there “Yeah… not all heroes wear capes.” And we laughed and I felt good because I just went for it and I don’t always do that.
