Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Movie Review

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

I thought Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a hundred and thirty-seven minutes of silly pirate fun. It missed some of the magic of the PotC: The Curse of the Black Pearl and lacked some of the elements that sustained PotC: Dead Man’s Chest and PotC: At World’s End. However better than some […]

Doctor Who: The Curse of the Black Spot

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Just watched the latest Doctor Who – The Curse of the Black Spot.  Very much in the monster of the week / concept based science fiction mixed up with pirates.  In theory it had all the elements to be a really good episode.  Unfortunately somewhere along the way something got lost.  I don’t think the […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

Just back from watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, the second part of the two part follow up to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Enjoyed it. Plot was twisty and did some interesting things with the characters. Great action sequences. Interesting characters. I would have liked more Chow […]

This Follows on from: Characters on the Couch (Part 9). The first part can be found at: Characters on the Couch (Part 1). The Outlaw Archetype “Rules are meant to be broken.” Outlaws seek revenge and revolution. They want to bring about the destruction of what is working. Their tactics are disruption, shock and outrage. […]

I would appear to be Blackbeard

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

I’m blaming the bottle of wine I’ve polished off tonight for the following result… You scored as Black Beard. When you finally die and enter Hell, the devil will hand over his reign and bow. Black Beard 75% Mary Read 67% Will Turner 67% Captain Jack Sparrow 50% Captain James T. Hook 42% Dread Pirate […]
