I DID go see it for the second time this past weekend, and agree with you 110%! It was just a good the second time around! High regards. Michaelson
: Just saw POTC etc...last night, and let me tell you - I have a new addition to my top 5 films of all time.
: I won't spoil anything here for you, but it is very much in the tradition of 'Raiders,' with a smart script, amazing direction, not one bad performance and a real sense of high action and adventure.
: The movie is never afraid to shy away from overt violence or adult themes (surprisingly for a Disney flick) and is refreshingly un-PC at points. I get a real sense that there was a vision at work here, one that was executed beautifully.
: And, like Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp plays a lovable rogue who is rough around the edges but ultimately does the right thing. And, like Harrison Ford, he will unfortunately not be rewared with an Oscar for his outstanding performance.
: So, the reason I am posting this is to let my fellow Indyfans know that POTC is stylistically similar to 'Raiders' (and, in fact, Star Wars or the Wizard of Oz) and had I had the time, I would've turned around and went back to see it again right afterwards.
: Amazing stuff.
