Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

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

I'm so glad that people are really starting to come around to Pirates 2 & 3. I think the oversaturation of blockbusters, who's soul purpose is just to make money, have really tired people out. Say what you will about Pirates 2 & 3, but one thing that they are not are cash grabs. A studio put a lot of faith in an artist and let them make whatever film they wanted. This film belongs to Gore, not Disney. I can't say the same for most of, if not all, the films Disney puts out now. A movie like this would have never gotten made today, where movies are put through focus groups and made to appeal to the widest possible audience. That's why I think people are coming back to Pirates 2 & 3 and are starting to realize that they were kinda ahead of their time.
