I just saw Pirates of the Carribean, the movie based on the ride. And, while there were parts that were a little stupid (Captain Sparrow insisting that he loves the theme song and wants to sing it over and over), it was for the most part like the ride made into a movie, except good. I liked it, anyway. The main characters had a high “who cares” value, but Johnny Depp was fuckin awesome. Just rad. And Geoffrey Rush as the villain was great too.I’ve heard that Disney is making more of these “movies based on the ride” things- e.g. The Haunted Mansion– but you know what would be too awesome? A movie of It’s A Small World. A horror movie. The trailer would go something like:
TITLES: It’s a world of laughter
VISUAL: a carload of DRUNKEN TEENAGERS drives into a small town at night.
TEENAGED GIRL: Wooo!
TEENAGED GIRL: (crying and hitting boyfriend) It’s YOUR fault we’re stuck here!
VOICEOVER: It’s a world of hopes…
BOYFRIEND #2 stares around him, in awe, in an abandoned cathedral. Sunlight streams through holes in the ceiling.
BOYFRIEND #2: What happened to this place?
VOICEOVER: … and a world of fears
Quick POV flash of one of the girls being attacked by something 2 feet tall
VOICEOVER: There’s so much that we share
GIRL is lost in the dark somewhere
VOICEOVER: That it’s time we’re aware
GIRL and BOYFRIEND #1 clutch their sputtering candles with bloody rag-covered hands in the dark- a flash of lightning outside illuminates thousands of round-headed grinning dolls sloooooowly closing in on them.
VOICEOVER: it’s a small,
Jump cut of someone’s paniced eyes
Jump cut of about to get axed in the back VOICEOVER: world.
Camera rotates around REMAINING TEENAGERS as they frantically look around them- they are in a giant hall filled with laughing singing dolls- it is HELL.
GIRL: No! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
DOLLS: Heehee hee hee!
