"I am an instrument in the shape
of a WOMAN trying to translate pulsations
into images
for the relief of the body
and the reconstruction of the mind."

aye, matey!

a film this summer that i'm more excited to watch than spiderman 3 is at world's end, the third and final installment of pirates of the caribbean. i've been dying to see it since the ending of the 2nd film at the final seconds of watching it in gateway last year--i'm that excited.

johnny depp's performance is already reason enough to be excited for this film. couple that with a great story, amazing effects, and a big battle to boot. yo ho, it's a pirate's life for me!

captain barbossa must team up with will and elizabeth and (of course!) jack sparrow to beat davy jones and the entire east india company. it'd be one helluva funny film to see jack and barbossa team with each other.

i'm also wondering how they'd bring jack to life again. or maybe he really is dead and it's his soul that walks with them. i'd find out when i watch it.

depp's coming back as jack sparrow is a shouldn't-miss film. i've always admired johnny depp as an actor and his versatility in giving each role its own life. i can't even imagine that he started out as a pretty-boy cop in 21 jump street, then moved on to eccentric roles in gilbert grape, edward scissorhands, ed wood, benny and joon, sleepy hollow, secret window, charlie and the chocolate factory, finding neverland, and many others (hindi halata na fan ako di ba?). it's not always that you find an actor who's so willing to stretch his own talent by playing non-mainstream roles.

chow yun-fat is also another actor to watch out for in this film. my sister is especially waiting for it. hehe.

i can still remember strains of the song that the pirates were singing as we went on the pirates of the caribbean ride in disneyland... "Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me. We're beggars and blighters, never-do-well cads, Drink up, my hearties, yo ho. Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads, Drink up, my hearties, yo ho."

and with this, captain barbossa says: "There was a time when a pirate was free to make his own way in the world. But our time is comin' to an end. Our enemies are united; they vow to destroy us. The Pirate Lords from the four corners of the Earth must stand together."

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opens in theaters on May 24. i'll be sure to get tickets two weeks in advance.
