Guess what gift was under the tree the most this Christmas?

A no, Ninjas was not in its title! Haha!


There Were ‘Pirates’ Under the Tree

The DVD that most people gave as a gift at Christmas time turned out to be Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. The movie returned to the top of the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart last week after being displaced a week earlier by Sony’s Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which fell to fourth place. The football drama Invincible, also from Disney, bowed in second place, ahead of the dance drama Step-Up, yet another Disney film. However, Warner’s Lady in the Water, the M. Night Shyamalan theatrical flop, looked like it would do no better on home video as it debuted at No. 13 on the sales chart.

Good for Pirates. Jenna, Melissa sister, got me Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, great movie! I can’t wait to see it again. Poor M. Night Shyamalan. I read the book based on the making of Lady in the Water and it was a very truthful look into the life of M. Night and he just seemed like he put it all on himself. He probably should have not forced this movie to be made. In all fairness. I enjoyed the movie. I don’t think it in anyway is his best work. For that I leave Signs and Unbreakable, they are the best out of all his movies. I just hope that this doesn’t hurt his next movie that comes out. Whatever that may be.

  1. What’s so sad is that nobody’s made it yet. But it will get made, dammit, if I have to make it myself with a goddamn camera phone.
