Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

While I enjoyed this movie, it wasn't finished. I know, I know, it's the second movie in a trilogy. There's another one coming. But it was two and a half hours essentially for nothing. Because there was little to no reason for this movie. (Except of course to make MASSIVE amounts of money.) Seriously, it was fun and there were fights and fun points and all of that, but they should have shortened it and finished the stinking thing in this movie, and then started an essentially new plotline in the next movie. They wrapped up the last movie in a bow for the most part and started a new adventure in this one, they should have done the same here. They could turn it into a whole series: like James Bond, but with Pirates and for a younger demographic. I'm not knocking the whole movie. It was a lot of fun. I liked the ghost thing, and the chick in the swamp, and the water wheel. It had a lot of great points. The last line of the movie was great too (which I'm NOT giving away).

But the movie should have ended sooner, and actually ended. Now everyone will have to go see the next one...
