Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
This behind-the-scenes featurette on the third Pirates of the Caribbean
movie and the (so far) last with Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom goes
only for an unusual 14 minutes. Most of these featurettes I've seen go
at least 20 minutes, frequently even 30. Unfortunately, even at only 14
minutes, they did not succeed in making it an interesting addition to
the film from start to finish. The first half consists mainly of
everybody involved with the project patting everybody else's back like
going on how Bruckheimer movies get bigger and bigger with every sequel
and they definitely want you to believe that Gore Verbinski is the
greatest filmmaker alive. After praising these two, they move on to
Johnny Depp and finally Geoffrey Rush, who is one of my favorite
actors, but I was still appalled by the over-the-top praise. Very basic
summaries and character description follow, which will really tell you
nothing new if you've watched the films.
Thankfully, in the second half, it improves considerably. We get
interesting insights into the work of the makeup-artists, set
decorators and, to a smaller extent, stunt-men working on the set. This
is also why I recommend this at least to some extent. If you're fan
enough to still like even the third PotC, you'll probably have a good
time watching these 14 minutes as well, otherwise stay away.
