    Too bad Geoffrey Rush won't be in this movie, I loved his performance.

    Captain Barbossa, yeah loved him too. Especially the scene where explains to Elisabeth how the "parler" does not apply to her and for what reasons. "The code are more guidelines, not actual rules"

    In part three he will be there again:surprised

    I really want to see this one though I haven't seen the first. Would that be a bad idea?

    From all the reports that I've heard of the movie (the movie premiered about 2 weeks ago at Disneyland http://www.laughingplace.com/Lotion-View-246.asp), you don't need to see the first movie to get this one, but it would help, because you then will know the history behind the 3 main characters.

    So go rent the DVD, Gokul. The first one was so much fun that you shouldn't miss it.

    A SHORT HISTORY OF THE 3 MAIN CHARACTERS:
    1 Elisabeth:
    Cosseted upper class girl
    2. Will Turner:
    Dumb pretty-boy blacksmith, of all things.
    3. Jack Sparrow:
    Shady character with dubious degree of sobriety&morality.

    Oh, that weren't histories, but portraits, I think.

    Well, it isn't all bleak on the RT site:
    James Berardinelli, for example, gave the movie 3 stars out of 4, and from my experience, he has much the same tastes in movies as I do.

    Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest is a winner!!

    Think of Star Wars - Empire Strikes Back. It left you hanging just the way you were left hanging about the fate of Hans Solo. You will have to wait till next year to find out.

    The 2+ hours went by just like that. It was that entertaining. But the best part was that we also bumped into other people who also wore the Mickey Ears pirate hat to the movies. And of course, many people stopped us wanting to know where we got the hats.

    We are planning on going to see it again, probably in a couple of weeks. It was visually stunning.

    We had friends who wanted to go see Pirates last night. They checked 4 different theaters and they were all sold out! Early reports indicated that Pirates broke the 1-day record on Friday with $55.5 million take.

    It looks like this is a big one for Disney.

    Yea that is exactly how I felt as well, I went to see it this morning and it was a great movie that was funny and exciting, but the ending is just horrible in the way that it leaves you hanging so now I'm definitely going to have to see the third one.

    I went with some friends friday night, we got to the theatre at around 7, and all shows until the 10:30 show were sold out.... so of course we got tickets to that.

    I loved hte movie, the ending definately does leave you with a sense of regret that the third movie can't be seen yet!

    great movie. I read a bad review on it and still went. It was as good as the first. If you liked the first one, you'll love the second one. As as someone mentioned already, it's setup for a third. Ignore the naysayers and you won't be disappointed.
