"I took my son to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest movie today. We loved it. Absolutely loved every minute of it. I had read a few reviews that said the movie was disappointing and confusing. Well, I'm not sure what film they were watching, because even my 8-year-old son was able to follow along with the many characters and plot points. It probably helped that we watched the first Pirates last night on DVD, so names and faces were still fresh in our minds. The action was non-stop, the creatures were original and terrifying (awesome nightmare material for the preschool crowd), and the acting was perfect. Exactly what you want in a summer popcorn movie. No wonder the movie has broken all records for box-office performance in its first weekend of release."
