Exactly how does time travel work anyways?
You can spin counterclockwise at the speed of light.
You can slingshot around the Sun in a Klingon ship.
You can fold space/time and do the burrito jump.
You can sit in an overstuffed chair with a throttle, blinking lights, and a spinning colander thing behind you.

There are probably other ways too.  It's actually not that hard.

I've gotten a really pleasant visceral experience from the trailer I saw.  I'm looking forward to it with a lot of anticipation.  Since Guardians II, there has been kind of a dry spell at the theaters for me.

Beauty and the beast, starring Emma watson.
The GF and I've been working on our house a lot as of late and decided to make some time for ourselves and go to the cinema.
I wasn't too excited about this. I'd have prefered Alien Covenant, but I'll be seeing that with my dad most like and besides, the gf wouldn't have enjoyed it one bit, I'm betting.
Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the film. It was great for what it was. And it was clear a lot of love and passion and respect for the classic went into this one. Also the first flick with Emma Watson I've seen that doesn't feature her as a witch. It was nice to see she's more than a one-trick pony. Hoping to see her in more films.

But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Watched previews of B & the B ... but I like musicals and fairy tales.  A beautiful young woman always turns my head ;-)

Logan..though I admit I watched it with just as many pee breaks as I would if it was a show about peeing, I was not all that into it. So it was somewhat captivating but because quite simply.....I paid 3 bucks for it so........meh

I liked the first one, but the franchise went from unique to stale after that.  Surely, Johnny Depp can find better things to do.

I know that is the general consensus among most movie viewers.  For me, when I watched the first, sure, I liked Johnny Depp's character.  Yet, most of its jokes just didn't work for me.  The second one, well, it often felt excessively drawn out and could use some editing.  Yet, more of the humor worked for me.  So, overall, I'd say I liked the second one better.  Never saw 3 or 4.  No interest in seeing 5.  Not anymore anyway.  The trailer actually looked good.  And a couple of early reviews I saw were mostly positive.  So, I though, well, maybe I'll see it.  But now that consensus is that it is even worse than before, I'll pass.

As far as Depp finding better things to do.... well, I certainly remember the day when he eschewed "blockbuster" type movies, wanting to be more of an "artist".  Ancient history now, eh?  It seems he has gotten addicted to an extravagant lifestyle that would have made Michael Jackson say, "reel it back a notch, dude".  Meanwhile, moviegoers seem to have gotten tired of his shtick.   And Pirates will surely have lower box-office than previous installments. It has grown tired.  And yet, I suspect, he can still get a bigger paycheck doing more Pirates than about anything else.  So, expect more Pirates movies...

I guess you could call him an artist (he does have a lot of talent, and he can be very convincing), but early on, I thought of him as a marginal actor because he was always playing quirky characters that most actors would shy away from.  Now, I think he actually sought those roles out. 

The first time I stood up and took notice of him was in the movie, Blow.  He played such a convincing role as a drug runner that I thought he was some new actor I had never seen before.  Then I saw his name in the credits at the end of the movie, and I couldn't believe it was Johnny Depp.  I kept thinking he was out of character playing a serious role, and didn't even look like Johnny Depp because he wasn't wearing some weird clownish outfit with his face painted, and that was when it dawned on me that he was really a serious actor.  I don't know why he messes around so much with the odd ball stuff.  Just his thing, I guess. 

Remember Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?  I didn't know it was him until the end of the movie either, but in that film, he was pure quirky.
