Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was a great movie and the entire FirstShowing crew had a blast at the opening. I review the cast and characters, story, directing/style, pro's, con's and overall rating. There is one potential spoiler along with some general storyline tidbits. The spoiler can be highlighted for viewing.

Cast / Characters: I know I have been looking forward to seeing Johnny Depp reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow since I saw the first movie in the theater on July 9th, 2003.

The Curse of the Black Pearl was one of his most memorable performances, capturing the audience with his style, bravado and charm. But something was missing from Sparrow in Dead Man's Chest. He just didn't have that edge of likability this time. His character was notably darker, really showing his evil side as he conspires to free his soul from his commitment to Davy Jones.

July 5th - 10:00 pm : Arrived at the theater to find Alex and Josh already there. Unfortunately I had to work today, so I wasn't able to make it until just now. I set up the TV, projector and screen. That is my car in the photo posted by Alex. =)

We started off the night by watching Serenity, which I should review at some point. Suffice to say my coat is sort of a brownish color, and it wasn't even on sale! =) As a bonus, we got to watch Alan Tudyk as Wash, aka Steve the Pirate! I also managed to get yelled at by one of the theater underlings for having my car parked next to the building for unloading. She didn't so much as yell, but took a much more passive aggressive path. Instead she went inside and sent one of her employees out to take back the chairs we had used to set up our TV and screen. Grrr!
