Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) short review

Positives:  Johnny Depp (yummy) playing Hunter S. Thompson as pirate (see Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for the REAL deal), Orlando Bloom (yum), Keira Knightley in some good (but Hollywood-ized) 1770s-ish gowns, based on my favorite Disneyland ride!  Negatives:  Geoffrey Rush doing that stupid Geoffrey Rush thing he does in every movie, Keira Knightley complaining OVER and OVER about her stupid corset (as though she wouldn’t have been wearing a corset every day since she was about 6ish).  Still fun nonetheless.
