Since we first saw Captain Jack Sparrow back in 2003 in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, everyone loved him. The fourth film in the pirates franchise was released last week, that being On Stranger Tides. These films all work so well due to the fantastic acting from Johnny Depp as Captain Jack. Throughout all four films we are given so many funny and fantastic lines which make them so loveable.
So here we go in a top 10 count down of Captain Jack Sparrow’s best lines from all four films!
Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) returns for the fourth time in this journey to strange tides in search for the fountain of youth. But he is not the only one who is searching for it.
Yes I do have a slight soft spot for ‘The Muppets’ and will go and see this film when it hits UK cinemas in early 2012. First poster to be released (I am sure a lot more will follow).
Well this was the first film I saw at the cinema, probably cheating having another animated film in the list but nevermind! I do love this film it really does have a special place in the films I have watched list! It has a love story, is very funny with Robin Williams voicing the Genie!
It’s approaching that time of year when production companies put out the ‘For Your Consideration’ posters in order to get the attention of the academy and build up a claim for their film to win those little gold statues known as Oscars. Disney Pixar has started a massive shout for Toy Story 3, which must get nominated in the Best Picture category for the 2011 awards. It was a very emotional film for everyone who watched it, don’t think I have heard or read a bad word against this film . . . so not since Return of the King or Shakespeare in Love has there been a film like this. The best reviewed film of the year as the posters say! Surely an animated film is going to win the Best Picture Oscar . . . will it be 2011?
Michael Douglas looks as though he has succeeded in his battle with cancer looking much healthier and more like his old self in a family photo taken in Disney World over the past few days. Last week saw Michael and Catherine celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, thus proving a lot of people wrong about their marriage.
Great to see Michael smiling and looking healthy again lets hope his cancer battle is over now! Or at very least he is past the worst of it.
If you regularly read my blog you would have noticed that I had been very much looking forward to see Toy Story 3 and I eventually got the chance when it was released on Monday. As the posters were being released I had been posting them on my blog, with lots of toys here. Posters featuring our already favorite toys Woody, Buzz, Hamm, Rex, Jessie, Slink and Mr Potato Head. So I thought it was about time to post all of the posters featuring the new Toys!
After such a long wait to eventually see Toy Story 3 (11 years to be precise), I went to the cinema on Monday for the 9.10pm showing and it was pretty full with people mainly around my age, that age being . . . well the children who grew up with the first Toy Story and it certainly took us all back to our childhoods and it felt great seeing our favorite toys on another adventure.
Inspired by a “become a fan” or now “like” on Facebook. I thought it was a good title to write some build up about the long-awaited third installment of Toy Story. To really get into this blog I guess I have to think back to 1995 and the release of the first Toy Story when I was 7/8 years old! So I had to be in the target audience for this film. I went to the cinema to see it and can remember totally loving it and I used to hope my toys came to life when I was not around (yes, probably extremely sad to admit that but it is true, and I am sure a lot of you out there felt exactly the same). The thought of your toys having adventures and everything really was just fantastic. Plus this was the first Pixar animation and so different to all the previous animated films we had ever seen.
Yet more posters for this year’s Toy Story 3 have been released and considering I had posted most of them before I decided to continue with the tradition and post these as well.
Well I decided to start a possible new feature on my blog of movie memorabilia I have lying around or get in the future. The first to feature on the blog is going to be a cup from “Up” yes I was very mature and thought Up Cup sounded funny so decided that when we went to see Up I would buy the cup.
While yes I went on about getting this cup for ages. I still have not actually used it. I guess it is just going to be more of an inside joke with myself and friends.
Today’s quote comes from a Disney film . . . Pocahontas very romantic (or stalkerish depending on your mood, haha).
“I’d rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you.”
If you regularly read this blog you will know that I am quite the Miley Cyrus fan and I went to see her in concert at the M.E.N Arena on Sunday 27th Dec and the first way to describe the concert is fantastic! Everything about it, Miley’s singing and performance and the whole show with the different dance numbers and effects which were on the stage, just amazing.
As you can imagine a lot of very small girls were at the concert and the screaming was very loud, however Miley is very much trying to get away from Hannah Montana and this was her first tour as just herself. Some of the songs were from her cross over album of Hannah Montana/Meet Miley Cyrus then from her first two Miley albums of Breakout and The Time of Our Lives (her most recent and my favorite so far).
Another new poster for the much anticipated Alice in Wonderland movie has been released this one featuring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. This is my favorite poster so far, but I think more will be released.
Charles Dicken’s classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is given an animated Disney look, and if you so wish 3D (2D is still available). I just had to go for the 3D option in an attempt to try to make my mind up whether I like it better or not. Scrooge is taken on a journey of redemption by three ghosts, the ghost of Christmas past, present and future. Going back looking at his life as it was, how it is today and how it will not be for very much longer. But can he be convinced to change his ways?
Well I am off to see A Christmas Carol in 3D today, so decided to post some pictures from the film. Expect to see my review at least by tonight!
Now for the 8th Character poster which features Jessie.
As I said a 7th poster has been released too, this one is Mr. Potato head and guess what, the 3 is his nose . . .
Yes thats right a 6th poster (and 7th too) has been released for Toy Story 3. They really are going quite crazy at the moment with the pubilicity for a film that does not come out until June 2010. This poster is of Slinky the dog.
The official trailer for the third Toy Story film has eventually been released and it looks like parts of it are going to be difficult to watch. But also sooooo good at the same time . . . the toys are coming back!
Eventually the time came to see “Up” I have looked forward to this for way too long now, and lets start this review off by saying it certainly did not disappoint. From the trailer’s and reading about the plot, that still does not really give you much insight into the full story of the film. It has sad parts, funny parts, cute parts, nice parts which equals an overall very good film.
