    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest 2006

    ★★★ Rewatched 29 May, 2016

    Considerably better than I remembered. Still pales in comparison to the first movie, but it moves much more swiftly and excitingly than I remembered, and it has some genuinely fun action sequences.

    The weaknesses are clear. Jack Sparrow is horribly written now that the writers know he's the star of the show, and the idea to turn the perfect swashbuckler that is the first movie into an epic saga was probably a mistake.

    I know y'all like Michael Mann and his movies. I know that he's doing this whole style over substance thing deliberately. But there's a difference between doing something on purpose and doing something well.

    I'm being completely earnest and serious when I say I can't for the life of me fathom why anyone would like, let alone love, this movie.
