Waking up really early on a Sunday morning is not a normal thing that I do. But I did so because it was Ryan's birthday [Happy Birthday, boo *kisses*] and we did plan from the night before to go watch the first matinee screening of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End at the nearest theater. Checking Sunday's edition of Honolulu Advertiser as well as confirming it online, we drive out to our trusted theater ~ Dole Cannery as their the first show is at 9.45am!

From last year's second installment, "Dead Man's Chest", I wanted to know how does Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) escape that giant sea monster that swallowed him? Will Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) and Will (Orlando Bloom) ever trust each other again? And whose side is Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush), Jack's formerly dead rival for the helm of the Black Pearl, really on this time? I was also so looking forward to seeing Captain Jack Sparrow, with braids dangling, nostrils flaring and being the loopy character he is that is made up of twitches-swagger-and-flounce the first two Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact, Captain Jack Sparrow did not make his first facially histrionic appearance until the 30-minute mark. A really long wait!

I won't get into specifics...the movie was all-right, I won't say it was a terrible movie, but that it was terribly misguided and highly disappointing. Much of the pleasure of the first two movies was their silliness; by contrast, "At World's End" takes itself more seriously than a movie based on a theme-park ride probably should. Refresh my memory: Wasn't the first Pirates movie a hit because it was fun? Sure, there's a few laughs along the way ~ Sparrow and and Barbossa bicker - fighting for command of The Black Pearl, comparing telescope sizes, and debating the proper pronunciation of the word "are" in the process - but it's nothing compared to the way Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush hammed it up in the first movie. The action front was a letdown as well - apart from some scattered skirmishes here and there, the only large-scale set-piece arrives at the end of the film when the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman do battle in the middle of a stormy sea. Go see it if you've seen the first two but be warned...it is the last, longest, and most tedious of the bunch!

Pssst: did you get up and leave as soon as the credits came onscreen or did you wait to the very end and...?[well, now you know!]
