So I just saw Elizabeth: The Golden Age, and it was a fairly cheesy, frequently overwrought, often ham-fisted, pretty, pretty, piratey pretty movie and I will hug it and squeeze it and buy it on DVD as soon as humanly possible.

(You know, if we're going to rag on Johnny Depp still sounding like Jack Sparrow in Sweeney Todd, it's only fair that we jump on Geoffrey Rush as well. Instead of the wonderfully cutthroat, Machiavellian Walsingham of the first movie, we now get a very, very tired pirate. "Her fate already be decided by the law! YARRRRRR." And just when I think I'm imagining things, here comes Tom Hollander all over again. Mary, of course he knows you were sending secret messages behind his back, he's Lord Beckett.)
