The League of ORDINARY Gentlemen

The League of ORDINARY Gentlemen & Pirates of the Caribbean
I checked out a couple of flicks this weekend. The first one was the new Johnny Depp flick “Pirates of the Caribbean“. The trailers for this one looked just pathetic, but to my surprise I found the film to be really charming. It was lighthearted, the action was exciting, the humour was legitimately funny and the visuals were strong. Don’t get me wrong, this flick isn’t going to be winning any Oscars, but it was a fun summertime movie. Go check it out for a little fun.

If Pirates was a pleasant surprise, then “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” was a horrible nightmarish surprise. I was so disappointed with this film. The movie didn’t completely suck, but it was a big let down. On a personal note, my old company Satellite Animation Studios did a few of the amazing visual effects which is their 3rd major motion picture. Avoid this one, or at least see it when it’s cheap to get in.
