Summer Movies

Wow, can you believe all the great summer movies that are out?  Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer, Spider Man 3, Shrek the Third, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, TMNT, and the list goes on and on.  However, one of my all time favorites is Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End!  It’s the third in the Pirates of the Caribbean series.  I just love Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner.  How can you not love those two in any movie! 

What’s so nice about the Pirate of the Caribbean movies is that kids and adults of all ages love it.  My children loved the whole pirate theme and who could forget Davy Jones and Bootstrap Bill?  The first of the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was released in 2003 bringing Captain Jack Sparrow to the forefront.  It was a huge box office success.  The second movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest was released in 2006.  That movie gave birth to the ruthless Captain Davy Jones.  Jones is the captain of the ghost ship, the Flying Dutchman and roams the seas searching for souls to serve upon his vessel for a century.  His most striking feature is his head, primarily a "beard" composed of octopus-like tentacles. A prominent sac bulges from under his barnacle-encrusted hat.  In addition to his bearded face, he breathes through a tube located on the left side of his face.  He has a claw for his left arm, a long tentacle in place of his right index finger, and the right leg of a crab.  He uses his long octopus-like tentacles to move objects, play the pipe organ and as a weapon.  Can you think of a better costume at Halloween?  They flew off the shelves last year and are still in high demand even this year.  Check out our website for all the latest Pirate of the Caribbean costumes at:

Could there be a Pirates of the Caribbean part 4??  Let’s hope so!
