that Halloween shit’s review published on Letterboxd:
I remember trying to see Freddy vs Jason in theaters the Friday it was released and it was sold out. I had to see this instead, and I was so mad. I begrudgingly sat down and began watching, and of course I had fun in spite of myself.
Pirates of the Caribbean is an absolute fantasy; a story that takes place in a vivid world filled with rich design. The setting is wondrous, the adventure thrilling, and the characters (Captain Barbossa!) unforgettable. As far as summer blockbusters go, it rarely gets better than this.
Oh, and my mom took me to Freddy vs Jason two days later, on Sunday morning.
