Got around to watching Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl again, in 4K this time (ironically for the first time). No matter how many times I've seen it, it never gets old, and watching it in stunning 4K was a welcome addition to a classic film that was far better than it had any right to be. Who would've thought a movie based off of a Disney theme park ride would be such a heralded classic? They hit everything out of the park here, the set pieces, the humor, the characters, the pacing, etc. with an iconic score to boot, and who can forget Johnny Depp cementing the role of Jack Sparrow with a once-in-a-lifetime performance?
I must've seen it over a dozen times on DVD and I gladly pre-ordered the 4K (yes, I made the jump to 4K Blu-Ray), which came in the mail yesterday.
