Ok for those that have seen it, any thoughts?

I liked the special effects... and the effects, and yeah, that's about it.

I miss ambiguous Jack who may or may not be doing the right thing and the pirate who's also a good man. Where did he go? Also, not nearly drunk enough. Elizabeth and Jack just creeped me out. And did they run out of money to come up with any new jokes?

But like I said, the effects were cool. And the Carribean witch was really cool.

I agree. I was disapointed by the movie. And you know its bad when you just keep waiting for it to end. The story felt false and forced, and did they have to include "every" character from the first movie? It was nothing like the first one which I really liked.

I'm just wondering whether the last five minutes of this movie will also kill your brain cells. I remember the noble saying "pirates! Go ahead and take my daughter! Ah ha ha ha!" and I was dumber for having seen it.

I will say that I did like Davy Jones. He was creepy and disgusting and done very well.


However, I can just see the writers sitting around saying "so how do we top Ghost Pirates?... I know! Half sea creature half man pirates!"

I also enjoyed the short conversation between the two comic relief characters about the correct pronounciation of Kraken. Cause I'm sure it came up while they were making the movie. And that just keeps everyone happy. Plus, I'm always saying the names of my mythilogical creatures wrong Wink

ok, overall, not bad... but also not great


loved davy jones, especially bill nighy the guy who plays him. enjoyed the return of barbosa and norrington. really enjoyed the swamp voodoo lady, she was also great.

i thought it was too long and they could have taken out the entire 30 min of them on the island where the locals thought jack was a god. thought i did enjoy the cage climbing/rolling sequence. after that i thought the water wheel fight scene was too much (though i did like how it was filmed).

elizabeth is just obnoxious when all three are fighting on the beach.

i didn't like the kraken jizzing all over jack at the end, that was silly.

Apparently I missed a scene right after the credits are finished. I know what it was and I'll spoil it for you if you want.

I didn't like Jack's character this time around. In the last movie he was a pirate, but he was likable. This time, he was mostly a dick. The dialogue wasn't particularly clever, the jokes were mostly recycled, and it REALLY needed a real ending. I don't like movies whose sole purpose is to set up for a sequel. All that being said, the movie wasn't bad, just not nearly as good as I had hoped it would be. The effects were fantastic, the music was beautiful, and though it was long, I think it moved pretty well. Also, the carribean fortune teller was a great character.
Jack definitely needs to say "savvy" more
