Should I? -or- Shouldn't I?......
What the heck! I've seen both... without detail on my opinion, T3, pretty good, could've been a bit better... Pirates, awesome! It could be because it's sci-fi, or maybe because it has Johnny Depp(!!!!!!Ahhh!!! ...sigh.... redface.gif )... but either way I loved it!

With you on that one JB... Mr Depp is the only thing in that entire film that has the chance of dragging my butt off the sofa and down to the local Picture House!
T3... doesn't really grab me, but then I didn't bother with the first two. Not an Arnie fan, despite having to listen to his mumblings on the Grand Prix programme today. Tempted to take a sick-day off work tomorrow, to go down to Leicester Square for the London premiere of T3, but only cos there'll be a Formula One car driving around!

While I do also love Mr Depp you have both forgotten the gorgeousness that is Orlando Bloom (Legolas-also in PotC)
As for T3, I can't wait! I love Arnie but do find it amusing that it's rated as 12A!! Can you imagine all the younguns wanting to watch the first two?! But I've found that T2 is the first 18 many people I know watched...when they were about 10!

AFAIK, T2 was a 15 at the cinema... I remember because I was (hmmm 1992), 15.... I think it got a better cert on Video though!

I haven't had the chance to check out "Pirates" yet but T3 was a great end to the trilogy.... Or is it the end? :D ;)
I think that Hollywood might try another one but without Arnold possibly.... Just the robot, no skin. Who knows?
Though I have to admit I would have like to see more of the "Loss of skin" on this Arnold Terminator like we did in T2. It seemed like there was as much of a long drawn out process as to damage to the unit like there was in T2. Oh well.
Otherwise the movie I thought was great.... especially the end....
The machines succeed in causing the war!!!!!!
I mean come on! They had to otherwise how did the first two movies happen? ;)

Mr Bloom? yeuch!
Mr Depp? Oh yes!
That's my incisive, thought out, well presented argument on this subject... ;)

Canker you've just inspired me to go watch T3, I wasn't going to at first as I thought the plot and story would have had more and bigger holes in it than my underpants but your little spoiler has given me hope that maybe T3 wont be as bad as I thought it was going to be and that it may even tie up those loose ends and paradoxes left dangling after T2.
T2 was a top film but the original TERMINATOR remains one of my all time favourite films I remember watching it as a 10yr old and being scared yet fascinated at the same time.
I do actually fancy going to see TPOTC but Mr Depp with eye liner can't say I find that appealing and as for Orlando frankly I'm getting sick of my teenage sister going on about him and how great and gorgeous he is when personally I think he's as wooden as a wooden door made from the finest wood out of the woodiest wood.

:eek: :eek: :eek: WOODEN???!!!!! Right that's it, the man u thing I could just about ignore but you're in for a slapping now!!! ;)
These 2 are top of my list to see when I have money, go birthday money!! Either that or get my dad to take me instead of going to see Piglet's Big Movie twice :D
July 22nd, 2003, 10:59 AM
While your at getting your Dad to do things for yah you might want to get him to slap me as I don't think you'll be up to it giirllfriiiend !! :D
"Blood has been spilt this night" one of Bloomy boys woodenly delivered lines from TLOTR TT.......Perrrlease you'd get more feeling out of a smartie ! :D I know elves live in the woods but he doesn't have to imitate a tree !

Hope you're gonna be hungry at KC3 matey, as I would put my money on Red Willow making you eat your words... she ain't related to Mazrah for nothing...!!!
July 22nd, 2003, 11:51 AM
Mere women do not scare me for I am MAN greatest of all humanoid life forms !
Besides if it looks like I'm gonna lose I reckon I could run faster than her ! tongue.gif
July 22nd, 2003, 12:05 PM
Ahhh, but my dear, Red Willow is no mere woman... tongue.gif ... although a few laps round the Northenden Suite would determine who's the fastest!
Going back to the topic, I think Johnny Depp is a damn good actor... nice to see someone who can bring a little humour to his roles.

Apparently off to see T3 tonight so I'll be more enlightened about the film next time I post in this this thread so in the immortal words of Arnold Swarztawatsit
"I require your cloths boots and motorcycle" No that not it.....oh I know
"You are one ugly mother......" No no no that's not it either
"Stick around" God dam it that's not it
Any way I give up but don't worry I'll be back. :D

I've always liked pirate movies but recent offerings have lacked the finesse to do the genre justice as have most westerns made post Peckinpah and Leone. I'm hoping that they have got it right with this one and reviews from across the Atlantic suggest they might have. If they are to be believed Mr Depp steals the picture, I'm not his greatest fan but he is capable of a great performance if he is cast correctly and given a half decent script.
So hoist the Jolly Roger and pass the grog I'm going to give this one a go me hearties, keel haul me if I don't. Yaaaaarg!

Well I've seen T3 and thought it was really good lots of action and lots and lots of cheesy 1 liners, the only problem I have is that it really is a no brainer of a movie and doesn't add anything new to the orginal films.
The more I talk about it the less I'm liking it, it's such a cash in and there setting up numerous sequels no doubt and theres probably going to be a Terminator the series.
I just think they might be cheapening the whole thing ? :(

Or maybe just a vehicle for AS to ride into the Governor's mansion, n'est pas?
August 4th, 2003, 03:15 AM
oh... mais oui!

I saw t3 at the weekend, it's easily the best US film I've seen this year, I was expecting nothing at all from it, but enjoyed it massively - even the GF liked it and she laughed at some of the one-liners. I much prefered it to X2 and Matrix 2, but, I had much higher hopes for them. Yeah it's been done before, but they did it in a way that left me feeling satisfied. Maybe I'm a sick Arnie fan, I just don't know. Granted I don't like to follow the hype, so went with my eyes firmly closed!

Pirates is a great movie and quite the most entertaining film I have seen for quite a while.
Funny, exciting, spooky and all in all a great piratical romp that shouldn't be missed
Worth seeing for Johnny Depps outrageous swaggering performance alone
August 11th, 2003, 07:25 AM
There is an extra bit just after the credits roll too, bet I'm the only one who knows that, being the 'king of the nerds' according to my good lady wife whom I forced to stay all the way to the end in an empty auditorium
August 11th, 2003, 05:14 PM
I bet the people who clean between the seats between showings really love you! lol
August 11th, 2003, 05:35 PM
Already planned to see Pirates again with a mate who hasn't seen it so I'll force her to stay, she's used to me embarrassing her in movies like when we went to see Final Destination 2 and I kept laughing!! :D
