This week’s theme has been bouncing around inside our collective noggins for quite some time & with the recent announcement of Lucasfilm being sold to Disney, we now feel that the time has drawn nigh. For many of us cinephiles, the apprehension & exhilaration of announced movies is a potent liquor. From geek adaptations to original material triumphed by a favored director, it’s tough NOT to get excited for certain titles when you catch wind of them.
HOWEVER… there are those that, when you read/hear about them: your stomach churns, your eyes roll, and you start wringing your hands like a half crazed Scottish queen. How to kill those movies that will betray us - ALL of them!
The tides are right, the wind is southerly & our keels are bursting to embark. But what of our destination?
• Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
• Clerks II
It is definitely possible, but for our part we'll say - good luck hating these movies. It's hard to not like them; they may not sit on the top shelf, but you should be allowed to form your own opinion about them. We did, and we get the grin - agin, and agin.
