I watched Dead Man's Chest on Blu last night and think it's probably my favorite of the series. Davy Jones and his crew are without a doubt the most impressive and well done CGI EVER. I noticed so much small detail on blu I never saw before, especially during the dice game when all the fish-man crew are standing around watching. It's a very Lovecraftian movie actually, sort of like Dagon with a huge budget lol.
I love the chemistry between the actors and the music, costume and set design are all beyond compare. The sound and image on blu are the pinnacle of reference quality and the best I've ever seen. The Kraken attack scenes are fucking unbelievable in HD with 5.1 surround sound. The script is also a marvelously clever wonder to behold with all the characters and their self serving machinations and romantic dynamics.
Yeah man, the Pirate films are fantastic and 'Dead Man's Chest' is also my favorite of the 3. The Davy Jones character is the most perfect example that I can think of on how to properly orchestrate CGI effects in movies. I remember the film won an Oscar that year for best visual effects which it rightfully deserved.
I bought the blu-ray trilogy right around the time when I first got my blu-ray player. That really is a must-own set in my opinion...probably the best demo discs I can think of where not only is the audio and video quality perfect, but the movies themselves are damn near perfect as well. I can't recommend that set enough.
