Asta 2

PotC and Firefly

No, I'm not going to draw parallels. (OK, they both star pretty men. Happy? ;) I just happened to watch both today.

I haven't listened to any of the commentaries on PotC yet, but I did peruse many of the other extras. First off, you know how most of us are flabbergasted when we hear a movie cost a hundred million dollars to make? I get it now. When you watch the 'Making Of...' stuff, you understand where all the money goes. (I hate to think how much the sequel will cost with Depp, Bloom, and Knightley I'm sure all getting hefty raises.)

Secondly, I also understand why most of the nineteen deleted scenes got cut. Actually, they were less scenes then additional parts of existing scenes that served no purpose or added nothing. Without spoiling it for those who haven't scene what was cut, I will say there were three scenes between Jack and Elizabeth I wished had been kept in. Not only did I enjoy seeing the additional interaction between the two, but the interplay added depth to both characters.

Now for some thoughts on the commentary for 'Serenity'Collapse )
