    disney's auctioning off movie props and costumes from "pirates" on ebay. the most expensive things so far are - big surprise - johnny depp's breeches and vest, at near $2k each. yow.

    void, get this: they're also auctioning off one of the boats from the ride!!! HOW COOL IS THAT? i mean, you could put it in your living room, charge people to take pictures by it... ;)

    here's the link if anyone wants to take a peek: http://search-cache.ebay.com/m2p/disney0107.html

    I have too much stuff in there already :)

    I was able to pull up some showtimes today, though the main page still lists T3 on the big screen for some reason. There is a 1830, 1930, then 2230 showing. I'm not sure which ones are on the big screen, but it looks like 1930 either way.

    EDIT

    Hey....CNN has a positive of the movie up here There are some minor spoilers but nothing too much past what's shown in the full trailer.

    Ok the movie rocked! The action/fighting scenes were awesome. I really enjoyed all the fencing scenes. Not only were they really good but they were extremely creative. Orlando was smoking hot!!! MEOW! Johnny was amazing. And it was hilarious! Tons of references to the actual ride. I was impressed to hear other people actually cheering, clapping, and laughing when they recognized them as well. Nothing better than going to a Disney movie with tons of true Disney fans. ARGH MATEY! :p

    I will definately be going to see it again. The El Capitan theatre (which is Disney owned) is having showings of it with lots of movie props and memorabilia at the showing, entertainment, etc. I have info about tickets and showing times if anyone wants to do that while they are here for Comic Con.

    The movie started a whole hour late because we had to be searched. We are talking metal detector wand, etc. They were EXTREMELY wary of recording devices. They also monitored the entire movie. I guess they are tired of all the bootleg pirating going on. :p

    Oh and they FINALLY showed a FULL ad for the Haunted Mansion. Eddie Murphy and his family get the house without realizing it's haunted. Normally I haven't enjoyed anything he has done in a long time, but the previews actually looked good. Can't wait for that one. Just wondering why it's opening at Thanksgiving and not Halloween though????

    Oh and as for Disneyland, I just found out that Duran Duran (who have reformed with original band members) will be having a show Tues at the Roxy. I have been dying to see them together again. I can't decide what to do now... hmmm....

    Hey you said you wanted a review! :p

    Seriously though, I just went to check out the ebay auction and I am sick at how much things are. I wanted something from Orlando's costume and they only had two things, one was a belt and one was a piece of fabric tied in Orlando's hair and it's like $300 bucks.

    Argh Argh Argh.

    ok, lets go for the 1930(7:30pm) showing...

    and from what i can discern from the showtimes, it looks like pirates is on olny one screen, and T3 has more than one. there are showtimes for T3 within 50 minutes of each other. so in and of itself it's not proof that pirates is on the big screen, it is a good sign. that and when i called the chic said it would be, but you never know! ;)

    wow! what a great movie! i loved it! johnny depp's character totally made the movie!
    definately a keeper...


    sorry to those who didn't make it (read: just about everyone), it sold out really fast!
    it wasn't on the cine capri screen anyways, they still had T3, so i was misinformed there...
    oh well, i am up for seeing it again, if anyone would like to catch it later...

    We caught it at Mills, it rocked :)

    I'm definately up for it again.

    No cliche, no plot holes that I could find, solid characters and acting....it was great. Mick kept hushing me at every small reference to the ride, I loved it.

    The trailer for haunted mansion was great too. I loved the Thurl Ravenscroft statue they had come around the corner for a second.

    I gotta chime in here ;-)

    Captain Jack Sparrow = best movie pirate EVER ;-)

    such a fun movie, it replaced 2 fast 2 furious as my most enjoyable movie this summer.

    In a rare chance for OW and Mrs OW to see a movie without a toddler, we got to see a late nigt viewing of this last night. I was impressed and the Mrs liked it to. :)


    I always have liked the swashbuckling, swordfighting and snappy comback fighting/deuls and this did not dissapoint. Lotsa fun and a must-rent/buy on DVD.

    yup, i was really impressed, too, which is saying a lot, cause i had pretty high hopes. it's the first movie i'm eager to go see more than once since chamber of secrets came out.

    well done, disney, well done. :D
