"Harta Lelaki Mati"

Dead Man's Chest lar! The Pirates of the Caribbean 2 had crummy Bahasa Malaysia subtitles. It was amazing it was not translated as Dada Lelaki Mati!

Anyway, apart from the distracting subtitles which I had no time to look at since everything else was so much more distracting, everything like Johnny Depp, for example. Actually, this time, Orlando Bloom proved to be more distracting than Depp.

There were not so many action oriented scenes for Captain Jack Sparrow(Depp lar) And when Bloom leapt on the mast a la Legolas style............ *sigh* Yup, he was VERY distracting.

It was 2 and half hours long! Value for money, if you go by its length. Ok, it was very entertaining too.  Humour, action on both land and sea, good-looking guys, sea creatures, CGI, great makeup, did I mention good-looking guys?

wah, saw movie already ah!
after all the hoople about the POTC 2, it will be interesting to look forward the next new pirate character played by Chow Yun Fat. possibly an english speaking chinese pirate of the south china sea. i suppose they will have make him up to be one nasty looking chinese pirate or else a handsome one to steal the heart of Kiera.(i heard that the shooting of the POTC 3 will continue after the summer break.)

A whole group of us went for POTC2 and -- would you believe it? -- after the movie, EVERYONE felt like having seafood?

Squid, to be precise...

At 2.5 hours, it's a little too drawn out but methinks the third installment will be much better than this... simply because BARBAROSSA IS BACK!!! MUAHAHAHA!!!!!

Face it, Squidface is quite a "lembik" (pun intended) baddie compared to Capt. Barbarossa...

Wanz can keep her blooming preciouss.... Geoffrey Rush is the one for me...

Cind - enjoyed your, er, 'outing'?
Jon - Chow Yun Fatt, mmmmm, I hope he speaks a little better than the last time I saw him in an English-speaking movie.
Wanz - didn't know you like Gollum???
Jules - ya Squidface IS quite lembik. He's love-sick mar. That makes him all soft and gooey.
Post-Script: Did not mention how so many people rushed to the toilet after 2 1/2 hours. I was smart. Went before.
