    Is this movie so bad that nobody bought it?

    Personally, I thought it was terrible and I'm glad that I only rented it
    from Netflix.

    I found _Pirates of the Caribbean_ to be so awful, that I only watched
    the first half and then fast-forwarded through the second half.

    ....but after seeing the brilliant "Master and Commander" it seems like such
    a lightweight effort.

  5. .but after seeing the brilliant "Master and Commander" it seems like such
    I believe it's supposed to be. It was quite enjoyable.

    Of course, Pirates came out LONG before Master and Commander, and *IS* a
    lightweight FUN movie, like it is supposed to be.

    Master and Commander needed some serious editing, btw

    Well, you're the first person I've spoken to that thought it was
    "terrible." I loved it myself. Just a fun action/adventure movie. Works
    on every level.

    BTW, there's no posts about it because this is a genuine good film.
    People only post about the movies that suck. That's why there was so
    many posts about Daredevil and Hulk. :)

    I liked it so much, I ordered it from the US rather than wait until
    March for the local (Australian) release.

    It's definitely a "fun" flick. Doesn't take itself seriously at all.

    If you cared so little about it, why are you bothering to bring it up?

    I was pleasantly surprised by it & bought a copy. (a store here in
    Canada had a trade & save bringing it down to $20.90 with tax)

    It's a well-made, entertaining movie featuring a bravura proformance by
    Johnny Depp. Many people like the film, often for wildly different reasons.

    The DVD includes an excellent transfer and a busload of mostly worthwhile

    Everything works as it should.

    Since this newsgroup is mostly about whining, it's obvious why this release
    would be an unpopular topic, although I commend you, Scot, for finding it in
    yourself to whine about it anyway. <g>

    Scot Gardner, says...
    I thought it was great fun. Exactly what I expect from a summer popcorn
    movie. But then, I liked Cutthroat Island.

    Scott, maybe you would have enjoyed it more if Ben and Jennifer had been
    the leads. At the very least, you would have had something more to write

    It was an ok movie, but due to limited funds...

    My wife and I enjoyed it quite a bit, I picked it up.

  17. However, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" isn't
    exactly aimed as a "serious" movie. But as a summer movie just for the sheer
    entertainment of it, it's definitely top notch--especially Johnny Depp's
    very "over the top" (which works in this case) performance as Captain Jack

    Why do you think the movie made over US$300 million in US box office
    revenues this year?

    Hey, I didn't say it sucked and I didn't say it was undeserving of the
    hundreds of millions of entertainment dollars it brought in.

    I just said it was lightweight.

    Take a pill, Ray.

    What is the Johnny Depp commentary like? Any good?

    No accounting for taste. Or the lack of it.
    POTC was a great movie and I bought it and re-watched it Tuesday.
