I have gotten to the point of not holding my breathe waiting for these so called 'special' movies. Inevitably, they are disappointments and never live up to the billing. I haven't seen the new Pirates yet, but the reviews were so so and even though it's raking in bundles, it just isn't as good as previous ones.
On a side note, one movie, a few years back, that I just couldn't wait for was "matrix II'. I love the original Matrix, even though it took 3-4 viewings to really 8understand it, but once I did, I so eagerly awaited Matrix II, and it was a DUD, of epic proportions, and III was even worse, so, as I said, let's wait for these new, originals to make it to the screen, before I shell out $11.00 to see it. (Hey, by then I probably can get senior rates, WOW)
