Although I estimate having seen the movie once before, I have absolutely no recollection of the beginning.

Just like in Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean
With that being said, I've seen plenty of movies for which I've absolutely forgotten the ending. After having seen the movie today, I'll go ahead and assume this was the first time I've seen the movie.

In any case, I absolutely love the movie's soundtrack.

Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley)
In fact, in terms of adventurous and epic movie soundtracks, I'd easily choose this one together with the soundtracks to Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

Overall, I absolutely enjoyed Johnny Depp's performance as Jack Sparrow and would definitely recommend this to anybody who enjoys watching movies.

Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush)

"Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!"
Lol. That moment when he jumps down and you realize its just a small boat.
"Clearly you've never been to Singapore."
Love that music.

Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Jack walk along the ocean floor.
Hmm, in the close-up, when he throws his chains over, it looks like he doesn't have much clearance between his hands and the rope. But in the far-shot, it seems as if he has at least one foot worth of separation.
Hehe. Another reference to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride. (jailers vs. dog with the keys)
"And third, the code is more of what you call guidelines than actual rules."

Another excerpt from Disneyland's ride.
Lol. Smart, use 100% of your resources.
"That's got to be the best pirate I've ever seen."
Tortuga - the third reference to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean.
Oh wow, it's Zoe Saldana (Avatar (2009), Star Trek (2009))

Great special effects.
"Dead men tell no tales."
"Why thank you, Jack."
"Welcome to the Caribbean."
"Why's the rum gone?"
[...] "But why is the rum gone?"

Haha. "This is just like what the Greeks done at Troy. 'Cept they was in a horse instead o' dresses."
"That's interesting."

After the end credits, the monkey swims back to the treasure and picks up a coin. Underneath the moonlight, he's exterior transforms before giving a screech and jumping at the camera.
