When I’m fortunate enough to absorb a movie, that’s a good night or day. Cheers, fellow movie-lover.
Watched this thing a week or so ago, on the Big-Screen, the next day after i watched the first two of these prequels on blu-ray. Haven’t gotten around to logging it ‘til now. Lots goin’ on, & it didn’t seem urgent.
Gotta say, as much as i love me some Mads Mikkelsen, he was a pale pale comparison to Johnny Depp.
In fact, the whole absence of Johnny Depp in this (otherwise ok) flick was its stab-through-the-heart.

This is one of my favorite flicks. A love-story lived in the the shadow of the closing Iron-Curtain.
There’s much I could say here about it, but I’m tired now. I hope this isn’t what our future looks like here.
I’ve probably written a lot of better things than this, but rarely have I ever seen…
