I understand that, but it seems a pretty idiotic way to punish him. Why didn't he make Jones destroy his music box or some sort of memento he holds dear instead of the freaking most powerful force at sea in the world. The cons outweigh the pros. And the whole idea of Jones disobeying Beckett seems needed only to kill the Kraken. Davy Jones showed his humiliation serving under Beckett clear enough without it.

I think they liked the Kraken in the second one but wanted to go another direction for the third one so they came up with some crap reason. In fact much of the third one seems based on crap explanations for things.

I LOVED the fourth movie. I personally think the third pirates was better than the second, mainly because nothing of value happened in the second. It was a loverly long lead in to the third, where too much happened. I would have preferred the plot to have been spread out more.

Same. 9:30 showing, so I probably won't feel up to reviewing it until tomorrow.

I saw it. I'm too tired to review it right now. For now though I'll say it was better than Pirates 3 but not near as good as the first two.

I liked it more than three, maybe more than two. If it had just been a little shorter, it would have been perfect.

I thought Blackbeard was a decent character, but not on the level of Davy Jones. Barbossa was excellent as always. It was interesting not having Will or Elizabeth, but I think that worked very well. As for Jack - best version of his character since the first film. By far. And Penelope Cruz didn't annoy me too much, which was a factor I had been counting on going in. She looked extremely annoying in the previews.

There were great moments of humor, action, suspense, and though the romance stuff was a little excessive (compared to other the Pirate films), it didn't make me cringe like scenes from Thor.

I'll post my thoughts first and then I'll read your spoiler tags and comment.

The credit "Suggested by the book..." made me laugh. They should've put that credit in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Razz

Okay, so this is showing in both 2D and 3D. What do you all think of the 3D version, or has no one seen it in that yet?

I saw it in the Imax 3D and I have to say while its awesome to see the 3D honestly adds absolutely nothing to the movie. Apart from one or two gimmicky shots with a sword that sticks right at you there is nothing special about it.

I'm not sure what more I can say about Blackbeard. I just found him uninteresting as a villain. Compare him to Davy Jones or Barbossa and you'll see what I mean. Angelica didn't irritate me, but I didn't terribly like her. Kind of like Blackbeard. What does the magic sword even do? It steers the ship. Oh great we won't need the steering wheel anymore. Rolling Eyes

However I don't want this to sound too negative because the more I think about Pirates 4 the more I like it. The exact opposite of Pirates 3.

See I thought the sword was cool. It controls other ships to, remember? Its how he got the Black Pearl! I thought he could have been better but for a single story villain I liked him. And yes, Pirates 4 gets better when I remember it. And yes, Davy Jones was better. I loved him and I always will.
