My man JMV over at Octopus Hat has alerted me to advertising for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I'm conflicted about this film. On the one hand, it's a Disney movie. On the other hand, it has more hot girls than the ride. On the other hand, it's a Bruckheimer movie. On the other hand, pirates! On the other hand, there's the "try wearing a corset" joke in the trailer, which means that the script writers have fallen into the familiar trap of using bad, obvious humor to pretend they have progressive views on gender. On the other hand, undead skeleton pirates!
I was really hoping to get that up to eight as an homage to Allen's Octopus opus, but I have failed. You've been worsted again, Allen.
But what I'm really wondering, really, is this. Disney is making a movie based on a ride. Are they going to make another ride based on the movie based on the ride? And if so, will it have a live-action or animatronic Keira Knightly?
