Christmas shopping just about done. Anxiously awaiting a few gifts that are coming in the post- I think I may have left them a little late in the ordering. Just have to go DVD shopping; I'm buying Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo for the daughter of a friend (a stuffed Ponyo is coming in the post too, from Singapore courtesy of eBay- please let it arrive on time!).
I didn't really care too much about seeing a fourth film, but I have been sucked in by the trailer. It looks like a hot mess, but I think Depp, Rush and Ian McShane will probably save the film by all being the very best Large Hams they can be (also Richard Griffiths is playing King George II- that's another potential Large Ham right there!). I sighted certain Navyboys in the trailer there too- hoping that Gillette and Groves will get their roles expanded somewhat. The fact that there'll be no Norrington to antagonize Jack in this one is depressing. :/
