Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)

The important thing to keep in mind about this movie, is to expect it to end as a cliffhanger into the third movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007). I didn't know this, and was a little surprised, but the impact was smaller than when I first watched Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings (2001).

Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp)

I don't remember the first movie being as funny as this one, but the action in the first film was more fun and believable than the action in this one. The second movie, however, wasn't quite as magical as the first. It has, however, been a while since I've seen the first movie, and this is the first time I've seen the second.

Watching some of the special features got me to appreciating many aspects that went into the movie.

Overall, while the second film was not as great as the first, it's still worth watching because it had a lot of funny lines and some decent action sequences. Furthermore, the music in the movie, like the music in the first one, was fantastic.

Will Turner (Orlando Bloom)

I started this movie today thinking I hadn't seen it before. It turns out, however, that I had already seen the movie. I decided to watch the movie anyways.

With respect to the plot, this film had a lot of story to follow. Many characters in the film had an agenda to fulfill; to name a few, we have Jack, Will, Elizabeth, Norrington, and Davy Jones. I would have been lost without the ability to rewind and turn on caption.

The part of the film I enjoyed the most was the design and effects of the character Davy Jones. His other crew, such as William Turner, was also a joy to watch. I loved the tiny details.

Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Jack Sparrow

Overall, while the movie isn't as memorable as the first, I believe it's still worth watching. Of course, I've yet to watch the third film.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Special Features Watched:
Bloopers of the Carribean
1: This was alright, some slightly funny things.

Davy Jones and Bootstrap Bill (Stellan Skarsgard)

Charting the Return
1: Spends about 25 minutes going through getting the second and third movies up and running. The main obstacle seemed to be getting the movie done on time. There's various interesting pieces of information such as coordinating the stunts on the wheel and casting of the pirates.
According to Plan
1: An hour of aspects went into filming the movie. A lot of what was shown here emphasized location and shooting real footage, that is not succumbing to using computer graphics. Part of filming on location is dealing with the weather. They started with a 200 day film schedule.
Captain Jack: From Head to Toe
1: Play all. About half an hour of all the aspects that go into Jack Sparrow's costume. Hat, beard, coat, sword, wig, boots, everything. Every once in a while, there will be mention about how Johnny Depp was particular about or put input into various aspects that goes into his costume.
