Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is one of my all-time favorite movies, so of course I rushed to see the sequel, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.”
Is it as good as the original? Well — no. It’s very fast-paced, with more focus on stunts and special effects than the characters. Still, it’s entertaining. I probably won’t buy the DVD this time, but I enjoyed the movie, and if you liked the original, you’ll probably like this one, too.
As for Davy Jones… I had hoped to write this blog entry without consulting the ubiquitous Wikipedia, but as usual Wikipedia is too useful to ignore: Davy Jones’ Locker
Ask Yahoo! also has some interesting info:
What is the origin of the phrase “Davy Jones’ Locker”?
The movie’s subtitle, “Dead Man’s Chest,” comes from… well, you might as well just go to Wikipedia again: Dead man’s chest
Here are the lyrics to the theme song from the Disney ride that started it all: Yo Ho (a Pirate’s Life for Me)
And here’s the movies’ official website:

UPDATE: “Dead Man’s Chest” is now available on DVD.
