Pirates, Hangovers, and Pandas... OH MY!

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

To tell you the truth, I was dozing in and out this whole time... It was a midnight release for me. I went with Paul, who is finally back from Hawaii for good.

Pirates 4 was good, but only as good as the second and third pirates movies... so not as good as the first. But, as usual, a must see for a fan of the series.

"Hangover Part II"

This movies was actually really funny. Sometimes sequels just drop the ball, especially for comedies, but they kept the main idea and characters from the first movie so this ended up pretty solid. A for sure, MUST SEE, for anyone who saw the first and wasn't appalled.

"Kung Fu Panda 2"

This one was the best of all the movies I've seen so far this year, or at least my favorite. I just got done seeing this with Gretchen, who also liked it, despite her reaction to the first film which she wasn't impressed with. Different time, different place I guess. But we both liked it.

Angelina Jolie's character "Tigress" had a much larger part in this film than she did in the last. The other Furious Five had much smaller parts, but at least they kept the same voice actors.

From what the paper says, this was the first Full Length Feature Animation Directed by a Female, Jennifer Yuh. She was a Story Artist on the first film and really showed what she can do with this one. Kudos to Jennifer on this film... Wow.

A must see for sure.


  1. Is that all you do is see movies?!? So lucky! Want to come babysit so I can do the same?!?
