Wardi does Pirates of the Caribbean II

On Sunday we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. And I highly recommend it. Spoilers ahoy, so if you haven't seen the film yet, but plan to, you might want to skip the rest of this post. And if you haven't seen the film, here's a wee bit of advice: stay till all the credits are over, there's an extra little scene then. ;-)

T's sister and her hubby had seen the film before us and apparently they thought the first half was a wee bit boring or too long or something. I thought it was really funny! Especially the bit with the cannibals who made Jack their god. And the pirates in the bone cages going up the cliff - too funny!!

Also, that bit reminded me quite a bit of the Ewoks' capturing of Han and the rest of the gang. So many similarities - if you've seen the film, I'm sure you'll agree.. (?)

Jack's escape from the cannibals... the fruits! Too funny!!

And I actually thought the second half was more boring. Maybe because I'm not that into prolonged sword fights and/or scenes that seem to be repeated. Hm.

The crew on the Flying Dutchman was inspired, I liked how they were all different kinds of sea animals/fish. Although it was a bit creepy too. I was happy to see Stellan Skarsgård as Boot Strap Bill. Dunno why. Maybe because I have a thing for all things Swedishh at the moment. But that's another post.

Johnny Depp was funny, but not quite as funny as in the first one. I liked that 'Norrington' (Jack Davenport) was in it again. He's just so English, I just can't get over how funny it is. Plus he's sporting a beard and on him that's not a bad thing. ^_^

Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, both a bit boring...

I liked the fight on Tortuga, and the fight between Norrington, Jack and Will on a..a... err... I have no idea what it's called... a big wheel like thing from a watermill...?? It was funny, whatever it's called.

Of course, Barbossa comes back, it's going to be interesting to see what role he'll play in the next film.

Oh, and there's the small thing of the Kraken. Is it just me or does it look somewhat similar to the Sarlacc?? Especially the mouth...

And now I'm getting distracted by stuff, so I'll leave you with this: go see the film.

And go take a look at my new shop! ;-)
