It’s funny, but for all HE’s disappointment over Pirates 2 — the film, not the money it’s making — there’s no shaking the enjoyment I’m still feeling about two elements: Bill Nighy‘s octopus-faced Davy Jones (which I singled out in the initial review), and that awesome CG moment when Jones’ ship, the Flying Dutchman, does a submarine dive beneath the waves.

If I were nine or ten years old I would be going back for seconds just to relish stuff like this. But because I’m an adult of some aesthetic refinement, sitting through the entirety of POTC2 in a theatre for a second time isn’t an option. Solution: dig on the Dutchman with my remote when the DVD comes out.
