For this week's Ultimate Geek Fu, there can be only one question, of course:
So what'd you think of The Pirates! Band of Misfits?
Sorry, trick question. We didn't see Pirates. As far as I can tell, nobody saw Pirates. I strongly -- and sadly -- expect that it will be just like Flushed Away. A couple of years from now we'll stumble across it in a dump bin of DVD remainders, pick it up on a whim, watch it, and say, "Wow! Why didn't we watch this one when it was in the theaters?" Fat lot of good that will do the creators of the film, though.
No, this past weekend, like everyone else in North America, we were watching The Avengers, and when we came out of the theater we were absolutely stunned by the size of the crowd waiting to get in for the next showing. I haven't seen the cineplex parking lot this full since they built the place.
Ergo, the UGF question this week is, The Avengers: Good, bad, or ugly? Was it worth the hype?
Let the arguments begin.
