Dead Man's Chest is the best movie in my immediate memory since The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. You have to either watch it in a theatre, or else with a 7.1 THX-certified Dolby Digital Surround Sound Home Theatre system. And a 50" plasma TV (or HDTV). It also helped that GV used digital film playback, so there wasn't one single scratch in the entire film.
How we got to watch PotC:DMC is an even better story. Originally my cousin bought four seats to Superman, showing at 1340. We noticed a lack of the usual crowd present before a theatre opening, and sat down for awhile, before picking up nachos popcorn and drinks and then heading to the entrance booth. An assistant rushed down, confused, to tend to us. She enquired what show we were watching.
Her: Finish already.
She proceeded to flip through a list on a clipboard, and running back and forth through the pages, she said she would check and glided off to the snacks door, leaving the four of us, hands totally full with our snacks, staring wide-eyed and confused at nobody in particular, except maybe the ultra life-size and ultra fake Will Smith MIB statue.
Another guy came out and explained that there must have been some error in the system, that there was no Superman screening anywhere around this time. He however, could replace the tickets with four tickets to Pirates of the Carribean.
Cuz: Um... you boys ok with Pirates of the...
Me: [who secretly wanted very much to watch Pirates anyway] Yes no problem! :D
Bro: Yeah... fine.
Except Pirates was screening at 1410, and we had to wait like half an hour more before we got to enter the theatre. It's a good thing the popcorn combo was the The Lake House Combo, and the popcorn box had a sort of cover-lid which was supposed to look like the mailbox, the central object of the film. Because I can never hold myself back from an open box of popcorn, I mean I do just what it says man I just keep popping them. So with the lid I was able to keep 3/4 for the film.
Incidentally we had plenty of time to watch the trailers. And whoa this summer season promises alot of shows that look good. Hoodwinked has finally come to Singapore after like... gosh I dunno how long. 3 months? Probably more. It's been freaking ages since I gave up downloading it on BT. Couple of horror movies that look good, then there's Tokyo Drift among the couple of action movies... goodness. Time to pass my HD to G again. Hoo0~!
