- Good job on the make-up/CGI for Davy "Cthulhu, not the Monkee" Jones and his crew.
- Great extended three-way swordfight (the fight up to the top of that building looked a lot like the Remirez and the Kurgen's duel in Highlander; similar set).
- Since there was more conflict and angst among the main characters, Sparrow's two droids had a lot of interplay for comic relief.
- The was very indeed.
I almost went to see My Super Ex-Girlfriend instead. Not because I thought that would be a better movie than PotC2, but because I doubt MSEG will be in theaters nearly as long. I'll be able to see that on DVD next month.
I've probably read more; some of the titles/authors definitely rang a bell. It's hard to remember; I've been reading these for ≈30 years. I like that I got all of the top five.
