    We saw it first show on Friday. Long but good. They could have cut out the wheel scene a bit as well as the three dueling on the beach.

    The animation and action was well worth the trip. Elizabeth's character surprised everyone at the end, but no spoilers here. I think they could have used Orlando Bloom a bit more. :cheer2:

    I saw it last night. Didn't expect it to be as busy as it was. Good thing a friend pressured me into buying tickets the day before and getting there an hour early. even being 1 1/4 hours early there was already a good line up!!!

    Loved the movie. Love Johnny and Orlando!! thought the make up for the villains was cool.

    Stayed to the end of the credits to see the "extra"..It was neat but the credits were far to long so wasn't sure if it was worth it..

    Going tomorrow as well! Would have gone Friday night or today, but had a Golf tournament today so needed my sleep Friday and was exhausted after the tournament. Golf game was good! Didn't win, but didn't come in last either. Won a prize in the door draw as well ,, :Pinkbounc

    Went to the midnight showing on Thurs night. Thought it was good, not as good as the first but still ok. I still didn't get the opening sequence with Elizabeth, why no one was at the wedding??? Thought the beginning dragged a bit but then it got better.

    Stayed to watch the clip after the credits too. There was only us and one other family (who had dressed up like pirates!!). Credits were soooooo long, but the clip was worth it!! Can't wait for the DVD as I'm sure there will be lots of good extras. And what a cliffhanger ending!!

    I went yesterday while Hubby took kids to see CLICK -- i do not care for Adam Sandler. HOWEVER, I was with another couple ..... they figured 2nd row from the front about 6 seats from the aisle was perfect place to sit :mad:
    We like getting there early enuff to sit dead centre while we eat popcorn and wait popcorn:: As far as the credits, hubby often drives the poor kids NUTS who are waiting to clean up, he insists we stay till the screen goes black. Not this couple, out in jig time.

    HEY that gives me another chance to take hubby to see them pirate:

    DH and I saw it last night. It was great! Sat a little close to the screen and felt a bit sick when they were in the round cages and in the wheel. Best sword fight I have ever sceen. LOVED IT! Cant wait for 3 and for the DVD extra's for #2. We didnt stay till the end :( My fault, air conditioning in the theatre wasnt that great, I was REALLY warm ( I am 8 months pregnant) and I needed some air. So we never saw the extra. If someone would PM what happened that would be great DH would Im sure love to hear.

    Cant wait till Feb to go see the ride and all the changes!

    Just saw it this afternoon...it was pretty good! I can't wait until the third movie!!!! A little long at times (I can't sit still for a long time without fidgeting). I now have to watch the first movie again to make the connections!

    Saw it yesterday and I think we timed it perfect with the soccer game - theatre was only about 1/2 full :)

    Pretty good movie but a tad too long - some parts really dragged. Can't wait to see what happens now in the next one!!

    DH and I went to see it last night. I had to hurry him up to get to the theatre earlier than usual but he was glad we did when he saw the theatre fill right up! We had excellent seats!

    I thought it was a bit long at the beginning but there was also a lot of the plot detail being set-up so you have to pay close attention. I found Tia Dalma difficult to understand. I loved all the special effects and the non-stop action towards the end was fabulous!!

    There was only a few who stayed until the end of the credits, which those of us who know the ride would probably understand the clip better. DH isn't a Disney fan so I had to explain it to him.

    I'm going to watch the first Pirates again, to refresh my memory on everything.

    All in all I really enjoyed Pirates DMC and can't wait until the third one!

    We actually watched the first movie on DVD in the morning on Saturday and then went to the sequel Saturday afternoon. This I think helped a little bit.

    Can't wait for #3 though.

    We saw it last night and really enjoyed it! :thumbsup2 It was packed--we got there early so we had great seats but it filled up so quickly. It was a little long in a few spots but I didn't mind. Can't wait to visit the ride again in August with the Jack additions!! The ending really leads into #3!!

    Saw it yesterday afternoon. Anybody in the Oakville/Burlington area try Encore cinemas it's only $4 to go to a matinee. Whole family saw movie and had popcorn and drinks for under $30.

    Good thing for us we watched Pirates #1 about a month ago so we got the tie in's. I agree that it was a bit long in places but the ending was great. It really makes me want to see #3. I totally loved the special effects for the villan sea creatures.

    We saw it Friday night, went with a bunch of people and we all dressed as pirates. It was a lot of fun.

    Don't forget to stay to the end of the credits.
