Pirates of the Caribbean (all three of em)

We’ve had a bit of a pirates of the caribbean weekend. All in, three cracking movies but dear god what’s with the utterly depressing ending? It’s a Disney movie for heaven’s sake! We expect HAPPY SHINY endings in our Disney movies, thankyouverymuch.

  • I never did see the third one. The second one was rubbish and in the last few years I’ve stopped watching the rest of a series (TV or movies) just because I saw the first ones, even if they weren’t good.

    Breaking those odd OCD fannish habits can be hard.

  • You should make an exception – sure, the second one is a bit rough around the edges (and displays a hideous lack of regard for human life), but then it’s not supposed to be Citizen Cane. It’s a movie primarily about spectacle – giant sword fights in unlikely places, big explosions, pirates. If you wanted plot, meaningful characterization and black crew-neck jumpers, you should have gone to see something with French subtitles.

    They’re silly overblown action movies. Take them as they are 🙂
