I saw Pirates of the Caribbean for the third time tonight, but in many respects it felt like the first time I watched it. The first was at a drive-in theater on the Cape, with bitty and bubblebabble. The screen wasn't very clear, and there were so many distractions (cars honking or driving around, dome lights being turned on and off, kids walking by the car) that I didn't catch a lot of it. The second time was on an airplane. The screens are tiny, and I easily get distracted by the screen a few rows down, and the one beyond that, and so forth, all with the colors set to different levels. Plus, the captain occasionally interrupts the audio feed to make some announcement.

There is so much I picked up today that I had missed the first two times around...visual details, clever dialog, etc. Of course, I started to get very sleepy about two-thirds of the way through, so I might have to watch it a fourth time to get everything.

See, I couldn't even tell that much from the drive-in or in the plane. One of my first remarks to Tubby last night as we watched was, "I didn't realize Legolas had a mustache!"

Had you asked, I would have told you it wasn't worth watching once.

I enjoyed it each of the three times I've watched it. I only wish that I had been able to see and hear everything each of the first two times.

I found it predictable, formulaic and badly acted, although the special effects were nice.
