Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ★★★★

Forgot how long this takes to truly kick off, and how truly problematique the whole cannibal island section is, but once the first act concluded I was right back in it, loving how zany and ambitious this is. The sequence with the wheel is pure brilliance and I wish we still saw things like it in studio films.

Pirates are still just fun, but the real villain being capitalism? That's smart.
