the thing about pirates of the caribbean

So, at midnight I go to the Loews Kips Bay Theater to see a special Digital Projection (DLP) of Pirates. I suppose DLP is to film as HD is to TV. I don't know. Anyway...

The movie was really long. But as with the first story, the script was truly amazing and Depp's performance was splendid...he continues to play the sissy-as-pirate character. Kiera Knightly and Orlando Bloom were also just as great as they were in the first rendition. The thing that was annoying about "Dead Man's Chest" though, is if you didn't see the first (you might be lost) and you're left wanting a third. Much of the film's delight comes via performances by Depp and some computer generated and FX (make up).

The reviews are lukewarm at best:

And for a special added attraction:
