There was a previous thread on this topic that seems to have fallen off the front page. I was reading it, but the issues presented did not cover the issues that I have with it.
SPOILER! If you haven’t seen it you need not continue in this thread.
I enjoyed the first movie. A new humerous take on a genre that captivated my attention through books in the 1950s. Swashbucklers and all that. Scenes of skeletal weirdos were a bit hard to swallow but fit in with the skull and bones concept.
But the entire flying dutchman scenes in “Dead Man’s Chest” with characters more in keeping with the star wars genre bears no relevance to Carribean folklore.
And the historical Flying Dutchman never was sighted in the Carribean.
Giant magical octopii doesn’t fit as well. Ridiculous !
If I wasn’t with someone else I’d have walked out of the theatre.
Yet some of the other scenes were priceless. The shikabob scene in particular.
