250 bloggers came together to watch the premier of Pirates of the Caribbean 3, thanks to Tim, Ming and team at Nuffnang for making it happened. My only gripe was that it’s a working day, so it was a lot of rushing. Rushing back from work, rushing to change, rushing to catch the movie, rushing to go home to sleep. There wasn’t much time to mingle around with other bloggers, which is a pity considering it’s one of the biggest gatherings of bloggers in Malaysia. Well, I’m sure there’s always a next time.
One of the first bloggers I saw was Tim. He looked a little pooped, obviously from working so hard trying to ensure that everything went right. I believe his efforts paid off, as this momentous event went without a hitch. Then I saw Jeff and his family. It was kind of surreal to meet the wife and daughter of this controversial fella, it felt almost like the first time when I met Jeff.
The bunch of faggots (Suan, KY, Val and FA and God) were seated far back. I could barely make out their faces, their distinctive pirate hats would put Jack Sparrow to shame. I also saw Jennifer and Cherrie.
The movie started and it felt like an eternity from then on. Really long, with the occasional chuckle that didn’t quite salvage the movie. Personally, I think it has fallen short of expectation, grossly short. Not the kind of stuff I would watch for more than one time. I shouldn’t spoil it for those who hasn’t watched but I can assure you that you wouldn’t miss much anyway. The best part of the movie was appearance by Keith Richards. He’s too cool for school. I suspect the fella didn’t need much on the makeup department too…how old is he again? 184 years old?
The movie finally ended. I stuck around till the credits finished rolling because a reliable source told me that there’d be something to look forward to. That final, final scene was of course cheesy as hell.
Thanks to Exabytes for the popcorn and drinks, although they were stale and diluted. Beggars can’t be chooser aye. One thing about Cathay Cineleisure, I no understand why movie not yet end the exit doors already opened big big? So distracting to me eyes. Is it cause can’t wait to throw us out? Cathay Cineleisure could do better on the timing, really. And the popcorn size too, while I’m at it. Otherwise, it’ll only be ever getting spillover customers from GSC, which rocks IMHO.

Thanks again to Nuffnang for making this happened!
