Hey guys,

It comes out in Australia tomorrow and I'm going to see. I think it will be really good. I'll speak to you tomorrow.

I've heard a lot of mixed stuff on this one. Most seem to say that it's better than the original, and even those that didn't think much of the first one (myself included) might be convinced by part 2. On the other hand, more recent reviews have indicated that it gets far too bogged down in its own made-up mythology (bit like the Matrix sequels).

Fingers crossed it's the former, as I could do with a good pirate adventure movie!

Though a Monkey Island movie would be better, obviously.

Pirates of the caribbean is without a question of my top 10 films of all time, so if it's even better then the original, WAZZOOOOOO I'm in for the ride of my life. cool
Well still, I don't want to expect that much, I can only be disappointed. But damn I'm so in line for it when it'll arrive in cinemas here...
Jack Sparrow is back!

Personally, I'm with Ron Gilbert on that one... Pirates of the caribbean IS the monkey Island movie. smile

Normally I'd be rushing to the flicks to see this movie. But I'm off out with my friends Thursday evening, Friday it's my mates birthday. Saturday I have a BBQ and I'm out filming. Sunday I got church..So it looks like I'll have to wait till next Monday to see it.
I have a day off work so that's awesome.

but Tarn, it is a Monkey Island Movie (damn you sollthar)

I think the first PotC movie was one of the best suprises ever when it comes to how good I thought the movie was going to be, and I think Dead Man's Chest looks amazing, and I can't wait to see it. I saw some recent reviews saying that it was not so good or whatever, but I have learned anything in the past 2 years, it's that professional movie critics are worthless.

This is going to be the first movie in probably 5 years that is having a midnight showing that I want to see, but that I'm not going to. I hate the sort of loud eccentric people who show up to such screenings who just want to "out-fan" everyone else. Super Man Returns was horrible in that respect.

OH, OH...I know what you freakin' mean. I was close to punching everyone in the entire theater during Xmen 3. It would have taken a little extra time out of my day, but these kids were suicide-inducingly pretentious..

Come watch movies in England, you don't get that. Generally everyone sits in polite silence throughout the entire movie. Well, unless you have a bunch of chavs talking on their mobile phones, but that's fairly unusual and you can get them kicked out anyway.

The one exception was when I went to see The Descent, which had people screaming and mumbling all the way through. One women even shouted out something like "oh god no!" at one point. She didn't mean to: she just couldn't stop herself. razz

You don't know how much I hunger for a respectful movie audience. Along with eccentric ass clown, I hate people who try to be MST3K as well, and no matter the film, I feel like I get one or the other.

If you're caught up in a movie, much like you described with The Descent (which I got all my friends pumped to see Tarn), I'm cool with that.

Well it depends what type of people there are in the audience. If you get really lucky you'll have a state trooper sitting in the middle. Then it's quiet.

I hate that too -
I cant go to a movie before 10pm now.. because all the kids and pre-teens who dont SHUT THE *BAD WORD* UP during the movie.

Although during one movie.... some kids were talking and making fun of the movie very loudly, when an extremely large (body building type) man stoop up in front of them and explicitly told them stuff about their own broken off arms being stuck up their arse if they didn't shut up.
The audience cheered and clapped as he sat back down... haha
the kids shut up smile

*Spoilers*

Ive just seen it. It was pretty gud well directed, amazing cgi and very entertaining but i was a bit confused towards the end

Why is the monkey still cursed?

Why davey jone's heart is so important?

the crew of the black pearl why does more and more appear out of nowhere?

Just my thoughts

I think most of this will clear up when the 3rd one come out next may

i have tickets to go see Pirates at the El Capitan theater in LA next Sunday. I wanted to get them for 3:40 tommorrow morning since the midnight showing was sold out, but my friend didn't want to get up that early, and the time he wanted to go was to late, for the movie wouldn't get out till an hour after the time i'm suppose to start school. Anyways, we'll probably see it tomarrow at some theater, then see it again at the El Capitan. biggrin

Disney made special arrangements for production staff all around Disney Studios to see the film and I recieved an offer in my office e-mail to come see PotCDMC at teh El Capitan as well!

The only problem was The El Capitan is in Hollywood California...

I work at The Disney MGM Studios...

In Florida.

That $10 a seat engagement would have cost a lot more when I considered airfare!

As fans of PotC 1 me and my girlfriend were really looking forward to PotC 2 - it disappointed on every level. Truth be told, I'm not sure I've ever been so disappointed by a film!

Just about everything which is important in a film was done very badly. It was so disjointed I'm shocked they even released it. The poor acting of Bloom and Knightley in the original was vastly magnified here with only Depp to back them up (he was even too over the top this time) as the rest of the cast wasn't up to much at all. Geoffrey Rush was missed for the majority of the film.

Effects were good, but didn't even begin to save this shipwreck of a film. Avoid if possible and wait for the DVD so you don't have to be disappointed in public.

On the contrary, my dear Schwar, I have to say this is the only film this year to NOT dissappoint me.

"I just thought it was good, i dunno"
--Boyocs

I thought it did everything very well. It was exciting, had a lot of laughs, Johnny Depp was god as Jack sparrow. Yes, god. Kiera Knightly had a personality. Davey Jones was an AMAZING villain. It made good nods to the original, without over using old stuff... I loved it, except for the whole *CLIFFHANGER! HAVE FUN IN MAY* ending. It was just cruel.


And in response to this
Why is the monkey still cursed?
You obviously didn't wait after the credits in the original. razz

*spoilers probably*

I had a feeling this movie would be what it is. Its like any "middle movie" from a trilogy. Basically all it does is build up the story for the third movie.

I was disappointed with it. Not NEARLY as good as the first... it was just .. weird i guess - pacing and acting and lots of other stuff just made it not work....

And I do not like Bill Nighy as Davy Jones at all. His voice isn't threatening at all. Geoffrey Rush is FAR better at being a villian. Davy Jones seems more like a whimp of a sailor rather than this BIG BAD guy who controls the sea etc.


But i mostly hate how its just a filler movie till the 3rd.... AARRG i hate that so much

After the credits in the first one the monkey takes a gold peice turns skeletal and jumps at the screen. That made it obvious there was going to be a sequal.

I haven't seen it yet but I'm seeing it tonight. I can't wait!

Magic Man it's like any middle movie from a trilogy? Sweet I've always wanted another film as good as Empire Strikes Back smile

I liked this more than the first, and the first was in my top 20 of all time. It had more adventure, more locations, more fun, better acting on Bloom and Knightley's part (not as good as Depp by a long shot obviously), great visuals, cool story, excitement, soundtrack, everything about this was good except the ending. I wanted this story to end and a different part of the story in the next one. It feels like it is PotC1, PotC2-2.5, then next may is 2.5 - 2.99999. In other words, this is more of a to be continued film while the last one wasn't, this one had pretty much an entirely different story.


SPOILERS



I'm pretty sure Davy Jones' heart is important because it's what keeps this form of his soul alive on earth or something like that. In other words, you could use that to bargain with him, or kill him, or whatever I guess. I bet it will be used somehow to free Will Turner Sr. or something.



END

When I saw the first trailer for this movie I was like "Hell yes", but after a while, it got overplayed and it turned into lame campy crap, and it looks like it's got plenty of stupid gags for the kiddies.

And lord, do I despise Orlando Bloom. But not enough to not capitalise his name. Damnit.

It's a little funny that schwar and others are so dissappointed, this always happens when people expect more from a movie than it appears it can give. The minute the PotC-DMC trailer came out, everyone was all goo-goo-gah-gah over it, and I was like "aren't you guys getting your hopes up a little too much?"

This happened to my friend- who is in an all-Marine family- when he saw the Jarhead trailer, he freaked out at how 'awesome' it was, then was completely, utterly dissappointed.

I try not to build up movies that much (unless they're my own, of course, as many of you are aware biggrin ) and I try not to be awed by trailers anymore, no matter how awesome the movie may look. The only exception I can think of this in the past three years is Batman Begins, which had an awesome trailer, and was an exceedingly pleasing movie.

Bottom line- don't get hyped, you'll just dissappoint yourself. Sollthar has the right attitude here.

It was the making stuff up as it went along (lame writing) which annoyed me more than anything. If you just want an action flick then its ok (still not great), but I expected more because there should be more to a film like this. Bullet time in a pirate film?

If you're going to put bullet time in a pirate film, its got to be outright comedy - like slow down someone going "i'll keel-haul you" or "yar harrrr", or something about 'davey jones'.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

*SPOILERS GALORE*

Things I didn't like

1. It seemed sort of "la-di-da, or freefloating" it felt like the story was going nowhere.

2. The part where Elizibeth chains Jack Sparrow to the boat was just uncool. Then she goes on to say she would sail to the world's end for him? That makes no sense.

3. How did Barbosa even survive? He's not very good of a character to literally lead the next movie.

4. Everyone sort of turned on eachother for the chest but somehow when they entered the ship they automaticly became friends?

Things I did like

1. Jack Sparrow was pretty funny in this one

2. I liked how Commador Norington was brought back in as a drunk.

3. The fight between all of them tumbling on the wheel was really cool.

4. I like how Barbosa took a bite out of the apple at the end.


*END SPOILERS*

That's my opinion I'd give it a 6 or 7 out of 10.

Barbosa didn't survive. He was obviously brought back in the same way that they plan to bring back Jack, so it actually makes perfect sense. That's a guess anyway.

So I just got back from this. Not the best movie ever, especially not as good as the first one, but it wasn't bad at all I say. I guess talking to Schwar about it really helped me, as I went in expecting crap, but came out fufilled.

It was different. Lots a reviews call it "more of the same" which I really disagree with. This movie was nothing like the first one, much darker, but I still enjoyed myself. I really liked what they did with Davey Jones' love story. It was very subtle, but effective. The movie had an entierly different tone, but when it did shift back to fun, it was.

Also, I watched this movie thinking about it being a "middle of the trilogy" movie, and in that respect, it worked well. When it's all over, I feel like PotC will be one of the stronger trilogies of my generation. That is if the last one doesn't suck, and does rock, which I am confident it will.

The only thing that really bugged me about the movie was actually the over-use of Sparrow. Don't get me wrong, I love Captain Jack, but there were over 400 times where the camera seemed to randomly cut to Jack out of no where, and he goes "....oh!" and then it cuts away. That kind of stuff really didn't work.

Was this movie great? No. Did I enjoy it? Yes.

I heartily agree with Waser. After the complete panning I had read before going to see it my expectations were pretty low. But I really enjoyed it as a popcorn trilogy 'middle segment'.

Plus Hans Zimmer yet again pulls out a bombastic, raging score. Hearing that blasting out of the impressive sound system at the cinema I went too was worth the entrance fee alone. smile

Not much has been mentioned here about the CGI and general effects work, most of which I thought was very, very impressive. Davey Jones and his crew were excellent, both in design and execution.

Overall, I thought that this was a pretty good movie. It had good action and was very funny. The only think that irritated me was the ending, which really was not an ending at all. However, I gotta admit that it should be effective in filling seats next summer.

I kind of prepared myself for this movie to be terrible, and I came out pleased. I really don't think that it was possible for this movie to live up to everyone's expectations, simply because of all the fanfare that the first movie received.

Overall, it was an enjoyable ride. Can't wait till this May!

Hey all,

sorry I havn't been able to post, my internets been funny but fixed now.

anyway, I thought it was exellent. I'm going to see it again tomorrow.

Story- excellent
Camera Work- excellent
CG- being in the cg area myself, I found a few things that annoyed me, mainly technical. but overall, excellent.
Lighting- excellent
Acting- Bloom: weak, Keira: Allright, Johnny: Excellent, other: Allright.

But I thought it was really good:

[spoilers]
I think it had most of the makings of a good movie but it needed to be edited a bit diffent, put the accent on the funny and sillyness of the film, it just got off on the wrong leg, all sad wedding camera angles and stuff, this is a movie about Pirates after all, nobody takes this stuff seriously. Good old capton Jack should not go down all epic, and the film should have had a bit more closure, just look at The Empire Strikes Back, now thats how you make the second act. I have no problem with Geoffrey Rush being in the forfront on the next film, he's perhaps the only actor in the movies that is Jonny Depps equal.

Am I the only one that thinks that the fact that the lady had the monkey might have something to do with how Barbossa came back? And also, am I the only one that didn't understand a word of what she said?

No you're not. I didn't, none of my friends did, and it was ridiculous. But all she did was explain the plot which was easy enough to figure out. Subtitles would have been nice.

I'm pretty surprised anyone is rating the story at all... It was just made up as it went along, there was no real reason for anything at all. Even as the middle film in a trilogy it doesn't have to be this messy and unexplained.

The information given in this film could have easily been shown in a 5min sequence at the start of the next one as there was just so little depth.

I'm also surprised people are a fan of the CG crew - there was no good acting here (even voice acting) compared to the baddie crew in the first film. Davey Jones was pretty boring and not that scary at all.

not as good as expected...

I thought the whole "fish-man" combination was kinda dumb..They should have toned that down ALOT.

Mrs. Chin Knightly was simply annoying, pouting her way through the entire film..

Jack sparrow was Overused to a ridiculous crutch-like extent..He just pops up in the middle of action scenes and makes goofy expressions and mannerisms...Pretty irritating..

The CG was phenomenal though.

Shwar...What do you mean by "Making it up as they go"? Isn't that pretty much what a "Story" is? The screenwriters make it up...as they go..

It wasn't at all as good as the first, and I feel they rushed and spat through things, making up small storylines as they came along.

And boy, that Woman was near impossible to fully understand. Utterly stupid how they've let that through, most kids won't have a clue what she is saying!

6.5/10 from me.
I won't watch it again in a hurry, too many negative points to post and I think others have covered them.

Anyways I thought it was good. But I can see what a lot of you mean by the 'making it up as they go.' like instead of having a real story to begin with they through in a bunch of characters and started writing out dialogue and as situations would appear so would the conflicts ect.

*More Spoilers*

When the crazy voodoo lady lets the monkey out, it runs straight into the next room where Barbossa's boots and legs can be clearly seen. So he was already there before Jack turned up. Whether he was actually alive at the point is another matter...

*End Spoiler*

Personally, I'm feeling very negative about this. The mid section bored the hell out of me, and it didn't regain my interest till the waterwheel swordfight (which was superb). I'm interested to see if the spectacular box office takes a nose-dive next weekend, depending on the word of mouth.

Is it just me, or has this been a really poor year for summer movies?

I saw it a second time at the El Capitan today.
The sets that they had at the theater was pretty cool, and I like how they had it themed to the movie. While we were waiting for the movie to start, they had an organist play a variety of disney songs, some of Hanz Zimmer's scores from the movie, as well as a couple of john William scores from the lucas collaborated attractions at disneyland. They also had this pretty sweet pre-show right before the actual film went where they revealed a skull and several bird-cage like things, the light effects made it look pretty cool, and there were other notable things that are to hard/I don't feel like explaining.

As for watching the movie itself for a second time.... it felt a lite more like a thought out movie the second time, and I liked it better, although its still not perfect. But the visual effects are still just as amazing to look at the second time. I think it might even be better than kong himself as far as realisim goes.

I just saw the movies a few days back and this is what I thought of it.

Overall, I thought the movie was decent. I really loved the first film and after seeing the big A- stamped on the front of the paper, I was really excited to see the film. However, though I had high hopes for the film, I was equally ready to be dissapointed, and I was.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

I think the thing that stuck out the most was how disjointed the plotline was. It seemed very unconnected and the film was not well put together. The film seems to have what I sometimes call the "hollywood complex". That is, it feels like the only reason that the plot is there is because the studios thought, "Wow, that first one really made an awful lot of money. Therefore, we'd better make a sequel." It happens a lot these days and there is no use denying it, Studios often make sequels simply for the reason that the first was a sucess, not because they thought they actually had an interesting story to give to the world.

Next, the actors. The main thing I want to note here is Johnny Depp's performence. Although this mostly the script, Depp just wasn't really humorous in this film. Sure there were a few witty parts that I did laugh at, but overall he just didn't replicate the magic of the original. Past that, I think they altered Jack's character by quite a bit. He seems a lot more selfish in this one, and that definately changes his performence. It was something that really bugged me throughout the film.

Although many of the ideas are not really original in the storyline, the effects in which they were pulled off was increadible. The effects and sounds, and particularly the visuals, are where this film really shone. While thats really not a compliment to the film, I think that the visual effects were something that really deserved mentioning. All the details digitally put in worked flawlessly witht the actors. I havn't seen such seamless integration between digital and human characters since the third installment in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (Return of the King), and yes, that is a compliment.

The bottom line: I'd call it a decent film, with increadible visuals. Some will like it, some will not, but if you like the original Pirates, than its good enough that you won't want to miss it.

I've seen M:I3, Pirates 2, The Da Vinci Code, Click, Superman Returns, Over the Hedge, Cars, The Break Up (don't ask), X-Men 3, American Dreamz, and a couple of other movies this summer, and they seem to have gotten more and more dissappointing as the months go by. I saw MI:3 first, and it's probably the best, most enjoyable movie I've seen this year.

May was a really good month. June and July have been so-so.


*spoilers, maybe*

Dead Man's Chest wasn't great. It was enjoyable, but it lacked the creepy-coolness of the first, and there were way too many questions thrown in that weren't fully answered. Why'd they go to the cannibal island in the beginning? Why'd they even need those scenes, they were pointless. Why couldn't they dedicate even 5 minutes to explaining more about how the East India Trading Compant monopolized everything instead of adding subtleties that made the themes hard to decipher. The black spot was never fully explained either, nor was Davy Jones or who he was. After 2 hours into it, all I had seen was stuff that begged questions without offering any answers.

The whole movie felt like a rushed attempt to recreate the grandeur of the first one. As soon as I saw the squid killing everyone, I was like "yep, it's just an action movie, not a good movie" In this movie they devoted at least a hundred minutes to all action sequences without building any kind of fear or suspense, something the first one did beautifully.

They also added in a pun wherever it was able to be added, which made the movie feel 'little-kiddy' and stupid. It felt like a bad comedy instead of a good adventure. I mean, how many one liners and super wide shots of Jack running away from something can you have in a movie? They just get old after about 10 of them.

Let me back myself up here. I didn't like the first one that much, in fact, I fell asleep when I first watched it in theatres. But two days ago I bought the DVD to prep for the sequel, and I liked it. I liked the timing of the creepy lines, and I like Jack sadistic certainty when he sailed, as if he always knew something others didn't. Here, Jack's character just seemed made-up and hard to read. The small twist at the end where Barbosa was alive was cool, but incredibly predictable. She let's the monkey go, and says "it's mwant for someone else" or something like that. How much more blatant can you be? Of course the old captain's gonna be alive!

*end spoiler*

All-in-all, about a 6/10. It was okay. 90 minutes shorter, and I'd have liked it.

^ I find that extremely hard to believe, especially seeing as how the final one was supposed to come out this December but do to weather, the almost all of the filming for the next one got pushed back.

Also, no studio is going to fund a 200million+ budgeted movie without knowing damn sure what they're filming.

So was parts of Lord of the rings.

But it's not an "unfinished script" in the sense of "No idea what's going to happen", more in a "not yet properly written out" way, because surely the whole script exists in an essay form already.

I think they could easily have filmed stuff without having the script anywhere near finished. They still have a second shoot for PotC3 later in the year.

They seemed to have gone for an action fest with PotC2 rather than anything more complex like the first film. I expect the same with PotC3.

PotC2 was very messy apart from the set peices/stunts - I expect PotC3 to be the same. I bet all the set peices/stunts for PotC3 are scripted and many filmed already, what they'll go back to film is some kinda story to make it all hang together. I expect this is what they are writing right now.

Just some interesting facts:

Davy Jones is completely CGI. Bill Nighy portrayed him, using motion capture, on the set during filming, rather than in a motion capture studio during postproduction.

Because of the computer-generated character’s photorealism, many reviewers have mistakenly identified Nighy as wearing prosthetic makeup

Each five second sequence of Davy Jones took two to three weeks to complete.

Take it as you will. After seeing it the second time I noticed a lot more things. Such as

*SPOILER*
Tia has the same locket that Davy Jones had...could she possibly be his lost love?

Saw it a few days ago, loved the first one, but I'm very dissapointed in this one. Almost no story at all and quite lame CG and too long battle sequences. Nice twist at the end though. Almost the same thing as The Matrix Reloaded (without bullet-time wink). There were a few good things in it, the ending was quite fun.

SPOILERS: I felt like I missed a big scene when all of a sudden Jack Sparrow's at the native's camp. How did he get there? Scene cut out for some reason?

But the movie didn't show anything of that which could have been quite a good scene. Anyway, the whole island thing could have been cut and he could've just found Jack Sparrow in another way, then the movie would be shorter too. (I think it was way too long)

*SPOILER WARNING*

Remember what Mr. Gibbs told Will when they were in the hanging trap thing? He said something to the effect that the cannibals think that Jack is a spirit god in human form and they're going to eat him to release his spirt. I agree that they could have shown them getting attacked and stuff but I think it works the way it is. No need to add extra stupid facial expressions by Jack.

My big fear before it came out proved unfounded. I thought they might wildly overdo the whole Jack mannerisims/homour thing, like many sequels have done. If anything he played it DOWN. The scene on the beach with the cutesy acting did make me wince. Other than that, loved it! 8.5/10!!

***POSSIBLE SPOILER***


(Highlight Below)

____________
Jack Sparrow died (or so I thought) in Dead Man's Chest and I saw an interview on TV with Johnny Depp saying that he won't be returning for Pirates 3 and that he's sad to say goodbye to the character but on the imdb page for Pirates 3 it shows him at the top of the the cast. So I guess he will be returning?

Well Pirates 2 and 3 were filmed at the same time I beleive so inherantly I think there is no question whether he'll be returning for 3. Maybe he was commenting on how he's bummed that the shooting for pirates is all over...I don't know but I geuss in a year we'll see.


9/10 for me

Are you really serious that this movie is bad? To the contrary, this movie is the best one this year. It was way way better than the first one. The first one was slow and kind of boring at certain parts. But this was hell of alot more enjoyable. I loved every bit of humar in it. Lots of great action and awsome CGI with davy jones. Loved the music. The acting was great this time around(better than the first one). Great story and very surprising ending. If only, this movie deserves to be on my top 5 movies. twisted

Lame CG? This was ILM's best work! I'm curious to know what was lame about it?

*spoiler*
Jack Sparrow died (or so I thought) in Dead Man's Chest and I saw an interview on TV with Johnny Depp saying that he won't be returning for Pirates 3 and that he's sad to say goodbye to the character but on the imdb page for Pirates 3 it shows him at the top of the the cast. So I guess he will be returning?
He was probably joking and I will give you 3 reasons why.
1. The whole next story revolves around getting Jack back.
2. Whats Pirates of the Carribean without Jack Sparrow?
3. I mean come on, use some common sense! He lied!

Might want to add a spoiler warning there, Gnome326

*SPOILER*

Really though, PotC2 is basically "The Jack Sparrow movie". How could they actually kill him off?

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise lives because of Johnny Depp's portrayel of Captain Jack Sparrow. Not bringing him back in the third one would be the worst mistake ever. Jack will be back.

I think it was pretty good (the action anyway). And I don't see what people think changed that much about Jack. He didn't become more selfish, he's always been selfish.

QUESTION : What and How does the Game of Dice work?

I want to learn it but no idea what it is!
Yeah, i was SO LOST during that scene crazy
I don't really know how that worked, but I think it was like you all roll your dice, and then you look at your own dice, and you make a bet on what kind of pairs everybody's dice put together might have. I guess people can challenge you if they think you're lying, and if you are then you loose. But that whole scene was kind of fake. (*Spoiler*) He wagered his immortal soul just to find the LOCATION of a key? (*End*) Bad acting in that part, too.

And why did Davy Jones have to play that stupid organ?

Those are my main complaints, but I think it was pretty good.

Cause he enjoys plaing it?

Heh, your complaint is that one of the characters like playing an organ? Now that's just... wrong... smile




I loved the film, not quite as good as the first, but comes pretty close. I can't wait for part 3. RARRRR!

It seems like the squid-faced king of the sea and commander of a haunted ship would have better things to do than play a pipe organ. smile
