Yes, it's a new thread to talk about seeing the movie... It was great! The story kept you on edge (as does the book), the scenery and costumes were wonderful. The battle scenes were gripping, but no blood and gore was required to 'make it better'. The Christian references weren't overwhelming. I mean, you have to really know what you're looking for. If you're a little kid, you're going to love the movie without analyzing it for religious themes. It's also the first time in a long time I've heard the audience clap when it was over. Good soundtrack, too. I'll probably go see it again. EDIT: There was a pretty good preview for another Pirates of the Carribbean movie, too!
