Default Pirates of the Caribbean 2

Just saw it today. Even at a 2:30 matinee, the theater was packed.

Good mindless entertainment that's great escapism. The hotness of Keira Knightley helps too. I'd recommend it as a fun summertime movie.

I'm going tomorrow to see it. My most anticipated movie in years, hope I'm not disappointed.

I know I'm in the minority herre, but I turned the first one off, I couldn't even sit through it.

I think it had more to do with my disgust for Disney than the actual movie. Maybe I should give it another try.

It didnt FEEL like a Disney movie. Little racy for your typical Disney flick. Beautifully done, colorful characters, fantastic effects, super story line. That movie was perfection.

Your not the only one who didn't like it, of course I'm also not the biggest Johnny Depp fan either.

Well, I saw it today. Gotta be honest, it didn't do all that much for me. I meaan, it was enjoyable, but something was lacking and I can't really put my finger on it. Really busy movie with a lot going on, hard to track at times. It had it's moments, but the characters were thin this time around. No real depth. Too bad, but I shouldn't have expected them to capture the same magic again as they did in the first one.

Oh, and if you didn't see the first one, then don't try this one. Methinks you'll be lost.
