Pirates of the Carribean

Last night, gnomi and I went with farwing to see the movie Pirates of the Carribean. (For farwing's take in the evening, see her post at http://www.livejournal.com/users/farwing/115403.html.

The movie was far better than it deserved to be, given the source material (a ride at Disneyland). Every character was layered, the story moved forward at a constant but logical pace, there was humor and seriousness in equal parts...and for the ladies, lots of eye candy.

All in all, an excellent film. What I wish League of Extraordinary Gentlemen had been, and that had far superiour source material.
