Pirates 2

Saw the new Pirates movie last night. I enjoyed the first one, but I wasn't bonkers about it like most people. Johnny Depp is good and all, but I don't see the craze that surrounds him. He downright ruined the new Wonka movie.

I left the second one with the same exact feeling as the first: it's a really good movie that borders at the edge of being a great one, and never quite makes it. They've got great characters, inventive scenes/sequences, and created a fun escapist world. But, like the first one, they achieve all that in a bit of a messy screenplay structure.

That being said, the crew/creatures of the Flying Dutchman are absolutely incredible. Davy Jones is one of the best cinema villains to hit the screen in quite a while.
