Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

We went to the theater to see Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. I had no real choice in the matter as Kathy has a major fascination with anything surrounding the phrase “Pirates of the Caribbean”. As a result she was looking forward to the movie since the moment she heard the title.

Luckily for me, the movie was fun. I thought it had a good plot, which provided an effective framework for some exciting battle and special effect scenes. The dialogue was funny and interesting without standing in the way of plot progress.

The movie is ultimately made by Johnny Depp playing one of the most unusual pirates of all time. He manages to both a swashbuckling hero type while simultaneously seeming to channel Cher. It is a very odd, but very compelling performance.

Some have said that the film is too long, but I think that it flows well if you get into it. Though Kathy would probably rate it higher, on my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 88.
