Movie Moment: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

I’ll admit it, I was curious. Sure, I elevated my nose at the idea that a film could be made using a censored theme park ride as its source material. Yet in this sequel-stuffed summer, you could probably do worse.

Yes, Pirates is certainly just as weightless as the rest of the popcorn projects, but there is something captivating about Johnny Depp’s performance that makes this a mite different. Still, watchable though he and co-star Orlando Bloom may be, they don’t deserve 143 minutes. A little more Avid action would have been appropriate.
