Pirates! Band of Misfits

It was ridiculous in a good way.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Good to hear. I love the production company.

Cold Comfort Farm...I watched it years ago and didn't remember a thing about it. Funny in a quirky way. Made me want to read the book.

There are a couple things in the movie that allude to the other films. You'll have to see what I mean. ;)

Just Go With It which was surprisingly better than I expected. An updated version of Cactus Flower. The kids were great in it.

I went to see Dark Shadows with my daughter the other day. We enjoyed it - it was entertaining. Think Edward Scissorhands meets Willie Wonka with a dash of Sweeney Todd! LOL. Johnny Depp certainly likes his white paint.

Iron Lady from Netflix--Streep deserved her Oscar, but didn't care for the movie structure: flashbacks embedded in 24 hours with the aged and confused lady.

Bernie with Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine--very quirky and LOL funny. Based on a true story.

Saw a French-Canadian film called Monsieur Lazhar last weekend. Very sweet and moving film with some amazing child actors. Highly recommended if it's showing near you.

I saw The Dictator yesterday. Pretty funny in a horribly sexist, racist way. Some entertaining political commentary.
Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.
