This seems to be turning into a regular feature – movie reviews. Oh well, it’s what we’ve been doing in our spare time.
We finally got ’round to seeing Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest yesterday. You’ve prolly all seen it, but what the heck – here’s a quick review: Read the title of this post. That pretty much covers it.
Oh sure, it’s entertaining. It’s well made, and the actors carry off their silly roles with silly aplomb, but it’s fluff for sure. A popcorn movie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Sometimes it’s what you’re in the mood for.
All in all, it’s not that different from the first POTC movie, and I’m sure the forthcoming installment will be much the same as well. But I’m also certain we’ll go see it when it comes out.
Oh, if you haven’t seen it, you might want to wait a bit. This is basically a two-parter and you’ll likely want closure. So don’t see this until just before the next installment is released (May 2007). Then you won’t have to wait to see the resolution to all the silliness.
