Watched "Pirates ! A band of misfits !" on DVD this evening.
Nice movie, but the end idn't feel "round" to me. Not at all. Too many still open questions, and most of all : There is not a kind of "good ending climax" which would have been the Pirate Captain actually getting the real prize.
In fact, the movie didn't have any real ending at all. It reminded me in that respect of "Pirates", the movie by Roman Polanski.
The bonus movie was nice, too.
But somehow, I really don't know why, both movies didn't quite catch me. They all felt as if something substancial was missing, but I don't know, what.
