"The two sequels are one big bloated Three's Company episode with pirates"

Linking to the worthy while at lunch:

The amazing Alexandra DuPont has some thoughtful words about Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. (One moment of perfection: referring to villain Lord Cutler Beckett as "Diet Tom Hulce.")

Which includes the link to the truly rantastic review of Dead Man's Chest last year. ("Remember how skeleton pirates were weird and scary in the first movie? How no one had encountered them before? How the English redcoats had no idea why they couldn't kill these pirates? Well, in both sequels, everyone is just kind of shrugging as they behold tons of supernatural nonsense. I mean, really: The head of the East India Trading Company truly believes his business will be helped by a damned magical disembodied heart.")
