Pirates review

So I just went and saw the Disney ride movie.

Let's see. GORGEOUS costumes. Unoffensive or amusing acting. Pleasant surprises of cameos. Pleasant special effects, transvestitism, and Johnny Depp with kohl 'round his eyes and an unbearably gorgeously slurvian Cockney accent. ABSURD yet gripping fight sequences.
All in all good. As a friend of mine pointed out, this movie had everything in it. Just about literally- I did not actually see a kitchen sink, but do not know of any way the movie could've been improved by the addition.

I am pleased with it. I look forward to seeing it again Sunday w/ a different batch of folks, and I NEVER go to movies in the theatre twice.
