Finally went to see PotC last night with morganmuffle.

What can I say? Apart from "go see it now if you haven't already", of course.

Johnny Depp is quite simply a genius. And, for once, he had the accent absolutely dead-on.

Don't care what any of you may say, Orlando is a good actor. He just does it all with his eyes, instead of exaggerated facial expressions.

Every single person in this movie was perfectly cast, and most of them had well-defined characters (although it did get a little confusing, in the battle between Barbossa and Jack's respective crews, to work out which crew the people getting killed - or "killed" - belonged to).

Liked the moral ambiguity. Jack betraying, or seeming to betray, everybody except himself at least once was great, and even Barbossa came across sympathetically, especially in his speech to Elizabeth about not being able to feel anything.

I don't get how people can regard Norrington as evil. Throughout the film, he's just trying to do what he thinks is right, even if his idea of what's right isn't the same as the audience's until just before the end. And I loved his little speech to Will about the sword, which basically boiled down to "I know Elizabeth loves you and not me, so I'm stepping aside - but take care of her. Hurt her in any way, and I'll hurt you". What's to hate in a man like that? I just don't understand it...
