One of the BEST movies of the year! And that’s saying a lot.This movie is number second to LOTR: Return of the King for me. I think without Johnny Depp, this movie would have went the more serious route and I don’t think that would have been as successful or successful at all. With Johnny Depp added to the cast, it made the movie fun and everyone else followed. I’ve seen the movie 5 times now and it’s still a lot of fun and really great! If you want to read my full review, go to the movie reviews archive. On with the extras mate!

There is 19 deleted & alternate scenes and most of them are actually pretty good. Usually the deleted scenes on DVDs aren’t that great and that’s why they cut them but these were pretty interesting. There’s also a pretty funny blooper reel on here with a lot of the cast members messing up and ad-libbing their lines until everyone starts busting out laughing. There’s a lot of audio commentaries with the actors, producers, director and writers. I have not listen to them yet but I plan on it. “An Epic At Sea” is a making of featurette broken into sections and it’s really cool. I liked the video diaries and thought they were entertaining. One was about a pirate, Pintel, played by Lee Arenberg. You might know him from the Seinfeld episode where he and George fight over a parking spot outside Jerry’s apartment. Everyone on the set is “his good friend.” haha. Next one was really interesting to watch. Diary of a ship it was called. It was about the ship, the Interceptor, and it’s crew members leaving the coast of California and going through the Panama Canal to St. Vincent. It took like 2 months I think. From Late November to January? They celebrated Christmas on the ship and made presents for each other. The next video diary was from Jerry Bruckerheimer and it’s all about his photos he takes on the set. He’s an avid photographer and has been taking pictures since he was like 6 years old. He’s got a big ass camera too! Wish I had that camera but I’m not a billionaire so. There’s some other extras on here that I haven’t check out yet like Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, Image Galleries, Interactive History of Pirates and bunch of DVD-ROM features.

If you loved the movie, this DVD is not to be missed. If you haven’t seen the movie, trust me, it’s freakin’ fun and fantastic!
