These are the four pirates from Hawaii in the new Pirate’s of the Caribbean movie opening Friday.

Have you ever used Fandango? I hadn’t either. There usually isn’t much of a line for movies in Hawaii. If ten people are in front of you in line that is a big deal.

On the mainland, it is quite different. Movies sell out. And popular times are really popular. Here if there are only one hundred empty seats, that is amazing.

So when Living Social, (coupons at a bargain price), had two tickets to any movie for $9 from Fandango, I snapped this up. I have been waiting with baited breath for the new Pirate’s of the Caribbean movie to come out.

This is perfect, and even though our tickets are for two seniors, the actual price of the tickets for a Sunday matinee is $17.50. This would be even higher if we lived in Los Angeles or San Francisco. I think New York City would be even more than the West Coast.

Not only is Johnny Depp my favorite actor these days, there are four pirates right here from Hawaii. And the movie was filmed on Kauai. Should be interesting.

Evidently it was not so easy to be chosen to be a pirate for this movie. There was an open casting call and all the ugly men on Kauai who wanted to be a pirate ‘tried out’. The men were supposed to be not only ugly, but between the ages of eighteen and forty five. The line of applicants was very long.

Once you passed the initial look over inspection, then you had to actually man a sword and swagger around so that the casting people could see if you acted like a pirate.

Once you were chosen, you had to go to pirate school to hone your skills as a pirate. This involved being able to climb the mast of a ship, jump overboard when necessary and of course be able to handle a sword.

And when all was said and done, only four were chosen. None of them actually speak in the movie, but they do growl. And smiling is not allowed.

One of the local pirates was being interviewed and he said his makeup took two hours each day. Not only did the pirates have to look very scruffy, they also had to have their teeth stained brown for the part.

I’ll write a movie review after I see the flick.
