On Stranger Tides? Yes, please!

It appears that the full title of the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie is "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides".

I mention this because On Stranger Tides is a book by Tim Powers of which I am very fond. It's got pirates and voodoo and magic and would fit very well into the world of the PotC movies. It's even set in the Caribbean! What more do you want?

I admit that I'm not sure how they're going to shoehorn Cap'n Jack Sparrow into things, but I'm willing to keep an open mind. A big-budget Tim Powers movie is Huge News in my world.

You'd probably really enjoy Pirates II: Scagnettis' Revenge, also.

I love that they're so proud of their big-budget porn flick that they put together an R-rated version. You know, for people who love the plot.

I just found the R-rated version in Blockbuster last night. Cognitive dissonance! Porn in Blockbuster! Porn without the porn!

Next you'll be seeing Behind the Green Door on TBS. "This feature has been formatted to fit your screen and may have been edited for content."
