Leo Says: I found this one to be more of a spoof on pirate films while the first was more of a seriouseish pirate move. That is not to say that this one is worse, just differant. Quite funny, well played and visualy awsome. If you are lokking for a little action comedy this is youre film.

Leo says: Director Michael Mann has many great films under his belt including some of hollywoods biggest such as last years acadamy award nominie Collateral (2004). This film is in his classic understated style, slower and with more plot and cheractor development orientated than most action films. I found it satasfide my need for a good guy flick rather well.

The Wild Blue Yonder

Directed by:Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man)

Leo says: I started this thinking I was going to see a good documentary but instead I got a very odd Sci-fi film that was filmed like a documentary. At first I was thinking "sweet" a good doc about a raving lunatic who thinks he's an alien I was a little disapointed to find that it is not realy a documentary but instead a rather odd sci-fi film as previously stated. Over all I liked it
