Yo ho, yo ho - is that you, Keef?!

Being the whore to the blockbuster that I am, there are three movies coming out in the next couple of months that I will definitely be catching.

Next week - X-Men 3. Oh, sorry, that'll be X-Men: The Last Stand. Until it makes shedloads of money and they decide to make another one. Last stand my arse.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the last two, but this one looks sorta... underwhelming...? Or maybe I'm just in the 'I HATE BRETT RATNER MOVIES' camp? Who knows; we'll see this Friday when, despite the fact that I HATE BRETT RATNER MOVIES I'll be off to see X-Men 3. Um, The Last Stand.

Of course, the big one is Superman Returns, which gave me a special tingle of excitement when I saw the latest trailer. And I'm a fully paid up member of the 'I LOVE BRYAN SINGER MOVIES' club, so, y'know, this is going to rock. Hopefully...

The big question is - should I wear my superman t-shirt and my pants on the outside of my trousers when I go to see it, or would that be too much?

Hmmm... probably not wear the t-shirt then.

And finally - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Now, I thought the last one was a pretty sucky movie made immensly enjoyable by one thing: Keira Knightley's heaving bossum. Um, I mean, Johnny Depp was excellent.


Any-hoo, this new one looks great fun, and I'm already humming "yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me" a little too often for comfort, but one thing is puzzling me: there were a lot of rumours that Keith - sorry, I mean Keef - Richards was going to be in it as Cap'n Jack's dad. Then I heard that he wasn't. Then he was. Then he was'n- You get the picture.

Then I caught the latest trailer, and saw this:

My question is: is this Keef Richards?

Sorta looks a bit like him... sorta sounds a bit like him...

I do hope it's him. That would be the BEST THING EVAH! Apart from, maybe, the wonderous sight of me leaping around in front of the Odeon Leicester Square wearing my pants outside my trousers shouting "DA DA DA DAAAAAAA!"

(yes, you'll believe a man can fly)

I also hope Keef doesn't take it upon himself to climb anymore coconut trees. My Mum's waited 43 years to see The Rolling Stones, and it would be just awful if he did himself in before she gets the chance to realise her dream.

So, note to Keef - you can do whatever you want AFTER August 20th, OK? Cheers matey.

And now for the ladies - Johnny Depp with the campest expression on his face that I could find:

Keith Richards can't die. All those drugs in his system act like formaldahyde.

That being said, Johnny Depp is the finest specimen of man I've ever seen.

Wait till you see the photos of me from outside the Odeon Leicester Square on Superman Returns day.
