Holy Guacamole!

Ay, the "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" movie went on an on and on...for almost 3 hours. After changing positions four times in about 10 minutes, I knew it was going to be a long, long movie...and it was. Is a three-hour-long commercial/trailer really a movie? Not to me...I felt defrauded!

Davy JonesOrlando Bloom is an awful actor, and Keira Knightley wasn't much better. Shoowee, and Jack Sparrow's mincing and prancing wore me (back) out after about 2 minutes.

Anyway, halfway through Jerry and I wanted to leave, but we were halfway done. It was obvious, I thought, what the ending would be to the movie, and I thought it'd be neat to see. Well, a few minutes from the end I could tell that things weren't properly turning the corner towards the inevitable ending. And I was right...the two-and-three-quarters hours were a big, big tease, and nothing more. What a waste of time!
