Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the trailer for the Peter Jackson produced documentary about the story of the West Memphis 3.  The film centers on the private investigators and forensic testing financed by Jackson and Walsh.  It has been one year since the three guys have been freed, however supporters are still trying to get an outright exoneration from the state of Arkansas, because Arkansas made the three guys take the Alford plea.  The Alford plea made the three guys plead guilty while denying they committed the crime.  This was so that Arkansas wouldn’t have to shell out money in lawsuits for 20 years of wrongful imprisonment.

I’m glad this is finally getting a wide release as this case is very near and dear to me.  I first heard about this case much like most of you with the first HBO documentary ‘Paradise Lost’.  I became heavily interested in the case and recently the three boys were finally released after serving 18 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit.  Tons of celebrities got involved with this case including Peter Jackson, Johnny Depp, and Natalie Maines.  Here is the trailer for your enjoyment.

Movie Quotes

Elizabeth Swann:
Captain Barbossa , I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal .
Barbossa:
There are a lot of long words in there, Miss; we're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?
Elizabeth Swann:
I want you to leave and never come back.
Barbossa:
I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means "no".
Elizabeth Swann:
Very well. I'll drop it.
[dangles medallion over the sea]
Barbossa:
Me holds are burstin' with swag. That bit of shine matters to us? Why?
Elizabeth Swann:
It's what you've been searching for. I recognized the ship. I saw it eight years ago on the crossing from England.
Barbossa:
Did ya, now?
Elizabeth Swann:
Fine. Well, I suppose if it is worthless then there's no point in me keeping it.
[it drops a bit, the pirates lunge forward]
Barbossa:
No! Ah.
[chuckles]
Barbossa:
You have a name, Missy?
Elizabeth Swann:
Elizabeth... Turner. I'm a maid in the Governor's household.
Barbossa:
Miss Turner...?
[turns to face the pirates]
Pintel:
Bootstrap.
Barbossa:
And how does a maid come to own a trinket such as that? Family heirloom, perhaps?
Elizabeth Swann:
I didn't steal it, if that's what you mean.
Barbossa:
Very well, you hand it over and we'll put your town to our rudder and ne'er return.
Elizabeth Swann:
[she hands it over] Our bargain?
[Barbossa walks away from her]
Bo'sun:
Still the guns and stow 'em, Signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port.
Elizabeth Swann:
Wait! You have to take me to shore. According to the Code of the Order of the Brethren...
Barbossa:
First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner.
