Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

Rated: PG-13 Running Time: 150 Minutes Year: 2006 Boobs: Zero One Sentence: GWAR hunts for Johnny Depp across the Caribbean. 135 million dollars, on a non-holiday weekend. Taking the new record for weekend gross from Spider-Man 2 and also the single day record for opening day. A franchise, that Disney didn't really like, thought was going in the wrong direction originally, and wanted to fire Johnny Depp. Old white men, should never make decisions on movies. Have you seen the movie yet, probably according to those numbers. So why am I writing this review even? Am I really going to sway you one way or the other on this one, I doubt it, but I guess it is my duty to write away. This movie, is not as good as part 1. If that is what you were waiting for I was just going to get that out of the way right there. Sadly the movie falls a little into the sequel curse, by recycling jokes, and stuff that was what they heard people liked in the first one and executed those things again to hope that they can create the buzz they need to carry the movie. The problem with that is, people are going to it anyway, and do not need the recycled stuff, to make it a great movie. Luckily the recycled stuff was a small part of the movie, and wasn't done to excessively so it didn't bother me too much. The story is a great story, and the characters are awesome. Davey Jones, and his band of rock monsters sailing the seven seas to bring you the ultimate in death rock are quite awesome. I really liked their story line, my only problem with them was that they looked like they were from the band GWAR and I kept seeing GWAR in my head when they were on screen, and it made their outfits seem a little too overdone. Everyone else I know really liked them, so it is probably just me. They also added hot scrumpett Naomie Harris, as a bayou living voodoo girl, that I enjoyed quite a bit, and was way hot. Everything else about this movie was solid and quite good, but never was it GREAT to me. I had an excellent time, but it didn't give me that chill that my 5 star movies give me, so this one is scoring a 4. I feel bad saying that, but I bring the truth. I love them pirates, and I really love the movies, and thought it was quite a good time, but not 100% awesome. Go see it in the theater anyway, and stay till after the credits.
