Lately I've been on the lookout for the movie I choose as my last written review on this site (only because I barely have time anymore) and this is it. The Pirates films have always felt like home for some reason, surprising because I hated the first upon that initial viewing but afterwards, pure fun. It probably helps that I have an emotional connection to the second installment, Dead's Man Chest as I saw it when alot of things in…
As much as I love The Life Aquatic and The Fantastic Mr. Fox, this is easily Anderson's masterwork. Every single frame is so perfectly composed it's easy to lose yourself in this endlessly charming and entertaining film. It doesn't stick the landing in the end as much as I would have liked but that's hardly a slight against the film as a whole, this is a damn near perfect experience.
