…I didn’t like “Dead Man’s Chest” (Pirates of the Caribbean part deux). The young ones did. It was a letdown after the delight and allure of the original.
I loved “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, but I can remember thinking much the same when I saw its follow-up, “The Temple of Doom”. Both second movies were darker, left us with beating hearts outside their host’s bodies, and engaged the occult.
The upside, and there were several–Captain Jack Sparrow, the beauty and compulsion of love, dazzling special effects, and I LOVED the closing frame!! My kids HATED it! Did I mention Cap’n Jack as an upside?? 😀 The movie was an adventure, but I was slap worn out when it was over…I felt slimed after watching those icky sea people for two-plus hours.
That being said, looking forward to next May when the third installment will be out. I’m banking on it being as redemptive as “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. Keith Richards will cameo as Jack’s father–now that’s just delicious!
You’re the latest in a string of people who have said the same thing about the movie. Maybe I’ll just wait for the DVD!
Bummer!!!!! I am so looking forward to seeing my Johnny!!! dang….
My husband watched a review that said the movie was a “matinee – not an evening flick.”
Hey Chris and Karmyn, Maybe since your expectations have been lowered, they’ll be exceeded :). Hope so anyway!
That would be nice! I won’t go in expecting ANYTHING – just like the first one. then, I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Here are some links that I believe will be interested
I did not see this–but I DID buy a Capt Jack Sparrow new in the box at Goodwill for 3.99 and sell it for $27.00 on Ebay;) long live the pirates;)
now I know why my questions are stupid, the next post answers :}
