Wait there's another one?! It's been so long since I first watched it that I don't remember. I watched it back when it released and was a little kid. I'm surprised you didn't watch both The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Carribean, and The Chronicles of Narnia until just last year! Yeah the Pirates movies are very different from the typical Disney movie as you now know.
i love it
My first reaction as a 6 year old was having nightmares for weeks after the skeleton scene. Now I love the movies ❤️
Best of the series imo
Lol “Special Compass” they said lololol
Keep watching the franchise gentlemen
Johnny Depp is nothing short of perfection in these films! He IS Captain Jack. Nobody else could have done it better
Absolutely! Captain Jack Sparrow is the best character in the series by far in my opinion, and Jonny Depp did such a great job!
@PAKTRA PRODUCTIONS well they wanted Jim Carrey so I can see where you’re going with that. It would have been hilarious with Robin (RIP😢)
@sanfander yup..the makers or producers or who ever didn't initially like Johnny's portrayal of a pirate but they either took a gamble with it or was persuaded by Johnny that it would work..I can't remember..
Depp remade the character, originally Sparrow was supposed to be completely different, he really made it iconic
ngl im still sad that he didnt say "you will remember this day" line to amber turd after trial :D
See, this is why I love Norrington. He's expected to be the stereotypical "evil British officer" that happens in almost every period film that has anything to do with Britain, but he's actually a decent guy. He genuinely cared about Elizabeth as a person, and not as a prize. So, as long as she's happy and taken care of, he knows when he's beaten.
Yeah Norrington was a character I'm so glad the directors developed, very often nowadays even main characters get very underdeveloped.
Yes and no with the attraction to her as a child. A young officer like Norrington would have spent the fast majority of his time away from port royal. He wasn’t watching her grow up or anything. And she wouldn’t have been out in public much at events at all until she was of age. It sucks that they use the same actor but norrington is meant to also only be 18 (yes a boy could be an officer at that age if he enlisted young at like age 10.)
@Dank Waifu You got a point. What a messed up time that was. At least it wasnt 100% accurate
@Aaron wasn’t that normal during this period tho
Norrington’s comment at the end was insinuating two things.
-He knows that Will made the sword and did it well. With great care and devotion.
-Just like how much care and devotion he put into the sword he wants Will to put it “every aspect of his life.” Meaning his relationship with Elizabeth.
In other words.. “Please take care of her and cherish her.”
Norrington a most humble man 😭
In other words "Ill expect you treat her well".
Norrington's a good guy 😢
Disney originally was hesitant about Johnny Depp's performance as Jack Sparrow but it paid off seeing that he is the reason this franchise was such a success. Depp also got his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor in 2004 for this and it was well deserved because Johnny Depp was perfectly casted
well not many people make such good job that they are promoted from side character to main one :D
Yep, they wanted a bare-chested swashbuckling hero... similar to a Zorro type, or the kind of pirates from the old 40s-50s swashbuckling movies. So when Johnny Depp did the very first take, everyone on set was silent. He was the opposite of what they expected.
Oh, Michael Eisner hated Johnny’s improvisations. It’s amazing the movie got made considering it. He famously exclaimed, “He’s ruining the movie!” Those improvisations are what people love and remember most about Depp’s character.
They were not just hesitant, they downright hated Johnny Depp's interpretation of Captain Jack Sparrow. Johnny and Johnny alone deserves all the credit for building the character of Captain Jack Sparrow from the ground up and netting Disney over 5 billion dollars
29:50, Not sure if you missed it or it was cut out, but when Will says "I'm not obsessed with treasure," Jack responds "Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate." Because Elizabeth is Will's treasure.
if it hasn't been mentioned yet, jack sparrow stumbles around when he walks on flat land because he has sea legs as a result of always being on ships which is why when he's on ships he walks normally; an ingeneous detail thought up by johnny:]
There's a theory that it's because his brain has been boiled from him being dehydrated for so long. You can notice it getting worse with each movie. Look up "Film Theory Jack is Dying" it's a pretty interesting video
@Relent-lass ! that too 😂
I thought it was because he was drunk
If I remember correctly walking the boat underwater didn't work. Not because it wouldn't create an air pocket, but because 2 people aren't strong enough to hold the boat down.
@Hapsard they have been doing it for thousands of years with high density materials like bronze and stone. The density of oak is less than the density of pure water. The density of sea water is higher than fresh water. That rowboat could be full to the gunwales and it would not sink to the bottom: wooden shipwrecks didn't sink because of the water, they sank because of the stone ballast in the bottom that kept them on an even keel.
@Hapsard Yeah man, I heard this story on "Mr Ballen" I think. It's so sad tho, coz they get contact 4 a bit but couldn't save them in the end (if I remember correctly). 😥
@Jace C. Right. I think that happened with the battleship West Virginia at Pearl Harbor.
@Hapsard Exactly. Otherwise when ships had holes in them. They wouldn't sink to the bottom. There would still be trapped air inside the ships, in fact there are horror stories of sailors going down with ships but still being alive due to air pockets.
Johnny Depp wanted to create a character who is in the middle between comic/animated characters and live action characters, so that it serves as a transition for children between those 2 genres; and I think it worked out beautifully
@Badd Medicine he also based the characters movements off of Keith Richards, which comes back later on.
Worked out great!
Love how you guys get to experience this proper. The first 3 are their own contained trilogy, the following two are kind of like side stories with Sparrow.
Will be interested to see what you think about it all. This first one is almost perfect in every way it has a real movie magic to it.
@Ryomir Elandil definitely.
I like that, I like looking at the 4th and 5th movies as kinda...side questy that just adds to the lore. Nothing will beat the first 3!
the opening with Sparrow is movie magic, first time i got stung by the magic was when i was a kid and watched Legend with Tom Cruise, it had all the checkboxes for a 8 year old kid on christmas morning.
In this film Barbosa was the villain, not the Commodore. The Commodore was just the obstacle in Elizabeth and Will's relationship. I'm glad they didn't make him a bumbling idiot.
An interesting thing I read once was someone saying most people think Jack walks funny because he’s always drunk - when in fact, he walks perfectly fine while on ships. But on land, he has sea legs. Because he lives on ships.
From everything I've seen so far in the comments, looks like Johnny had a great grasp on this character.
The scene with the dog in with the keys in his mouth at the jail, the scene where the Black Pearl shoots cannonballs at the town and the scene where he drinks wine as a skeleton and it goes through him are all scenes in the ride at Disneyland.
They have changed the faces to fit the movies and censored (changed certain scenes,such as the auction )xsome diaramas.
@MathShinobi [Edited] Admittedly, I never saw it, but maybe we should see if they'll react to it this Halloween season. It would be fun to check it out. But, even if they do, I Still might because how bad can it be? Right?
And Yes, New Orleans land has great rides, places to eat, and shops. It's one of my favorites to just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
Aw, I miss Disneyland before it became overcrowded and uber expensive
@LA HA My siblings and I like the Haunted Mansion movie. Granted it was cheesy and not as good as the Pirates movie, but still fun. And those two rides were my favorite.
I still remember that the Haunted Mansion ride had this graveyard that you walk through while waiting in line, and the gravestones have funny things on them. One of them said "I told you I was sick." hahaha
I definitely forgot about the pig scene. But Johnny Depp also sings part of the song from the ride in the movies.
[Edited] I think they redesigned a couple aspects of the town on the ride, but for decades, there was the town takeover scene with the pirates chasing women through the streets and houses (with one pirate Running from a desperate woman in a humorous twist); the drunken guy in the pig sty; and the ships firing at each other. This being KZclip, you can actually search for the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride and there's possibly a video showing the ride Before the changes. You can compare it to those filmed Afterwards.
No one ever seems to mention this: At the same time POTC: COTBP came out, Disney released another movie based on one of it's beloved attractions -- The Haunted Mansion. With none other than Eddie Murphy, if I recall correctly.
Admittedly, I don't remember anything about The Haunted Mansion, except people saying it was meh, even With Murphy's star power. Apparently, no one else does either because it wasn't really successful at all. It was a surprise bomb with POTC becoming a surprise hit.
This, kids went from being interested in dinosaurs to pirates...if I'm getting the timeline right. haha
I would say Norrington was "kinda okay with it" was because he didnt want to marry Elisabeth just for her status - which would be stereotypical. He wanted to marry her because he truely liked her. When Elisabeth chose Will Turner instead of him he was hurt but still wanted her to be happy.
I love that plotline actually!
You guys are rapidly becoming my favorite channel on KZclip. Oak's conversion to the Potterverse won me over but this franchise, especially if you're going through ALL the movies, is gonna seal the deal. :D
You’ve been reacting to my favourite movies recently! I thought it couldn’t get any better but here we are! I’m so excited!!
Let's goooooo, Malia!
"This is the coolest bad guy ever!" YES, Norrington is a GREAT secondary antagonist because he has a lot of traits we don't normally see in a villain. He is reasonable, loyal, level-headed, smart, and even empathetic. He has ambition but isn't prideful or vain. He has integrity and cannot be bribed with money or power. A very interesting guy who doesn't get enough credit because of how amazing Barbossa is as the "tragic villain."
Jack's first scene is the perfect definition of his character.
Fun Fact: Johnny Depp based his character Jack Sparrow as one of his favorite musician Keith Richards. If you'll notice his clothes in the movies! He just played a drunk Keith 😆
Commodore Norrington was definitely a pleasant character surprise. I expected ALOT of stereotypical character tropes but they truly surprised me with the character. Just one of many welcome surprises… such as Jack Sparrow’s sea leg walk. And to think Disney employees considered JD insane and over the hill for doing it… well the fan base LOVES IT!!!
When this movie first came out, everyone was dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow at the Renaissance. 😂 He has made these movies so popular because he was exceptional as Captain Jack Sparrow.
The first 3 are the best and the rest should be seen at least once. 😂
Depp absolutely did create this character, and embodies him perfectly. But he has said, and it's obvious when you hear it, that he based him on Keith Richards.
Who later went on to star in Pirates as Captain Jack Sparrows father
Which works out well...lol
"I'm curious, after killing me what is it you planned on doing next?" Has got to be one of the most underrated lines in this franchise.
There are so many Easter Eggs to the Disney Ride. One being the Dog holding the keys which is a famous moment on the ride.
As for the characters, only some background characters could be found on the ride. But since 2006, Captain Jack and Barbossa have been added to the ride. The Johnny Depp one is quite realistic.
Basically the Tortuga screen is the ride. Which is why it looked so ridiculous
16:53 In the Golden Age of Piracy, the pirates were often famous and written about as if they were rock stars (part of the reason JD based his look on several mannerisms on Keith Richard), so they had "fans." And there was a lot written about the Brethren of Pirates and what the pirate code was. Not everyone knew it, ofc, but for those who were fascinated and read about them--as Elizabeth obviously has--the knowledge could prove invaluable.
33:36 Gibbs told them to use case shot and langrage. Case shot is clusters or cans of small iron or lead balls (also known as grapeshot or canister shot). Langrage refers to scraps of metal used to fire at an enemy in naval warfare. There were several more kinds of things than cannon balls that could be fired from the guns, and pirates in particular employed several different types of shot shince what they generally wanted to do was disable a ship so it could not run away. Chain shot was often used in order to disable masts, and grapeshot/case shot was particularly useful in filling a sail full of holes so it was no longer effective. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cannon_projectiles
Along with surprising kids in hospitals as Jack Sparrow, he has also gone to Disney more than once and went into the PoTC ride as Jack Sparrow and surprised the riders. So fun!
Johnny Depp's performance is so iconic. He was even nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor for this role.
I remember these movies being so fun to watch! Hope you guys enjoy XD
love the fact that you guys did this Movie reaction after watching the Fantastic Beast Series!!! can't wait for upcoming reactions :)
Thank you and thanks for watching. 😁🤙
These are BRILLIANT movies. The first one especially is just perfect. I really enjoyed 2 and 3. It was just that trilogy for a while, I've only seen 4 one time and haven't yet watched five but even at their worst they're very fun! Johnny Depp is ridiculously brilliant as Jack.
#1 is brilliant. Its just a good fun movie, where the same can't be said for the sequels, nor almost any other movie made in the last 20-25 years.
I like the 5th, they close some plot lines left open after the third, the fourth is not worth my attention, besides Penelope Cruz, she's great as usual, Johnny Depp and her have amazing chemistry, but I really enjoyed the 5th, it's worth a watch, I don't understand why it gets so much hate, every actor did an amazing job, I love coming full circle for Elizabeth and Will, it just makes sense to me
I'm in a similar boat.....geez no pun intended, but I think it's safe to stick to the 3 because the characters, story and acting just..nosedive
So glad you guys are reacting to this! Johnny Depp is amazing, I watched the videos of him going to the hospital to cheer up the kids such a great guy
Not sure if you seen the one where he’s on the actual ride at Disneyland. Gets in his pirate gear and as they’re passing by on the boat he looks like an animatronic but then starts talking to the riders. Pirates of the Caribbean is nothing without him 🏴☠️
The older I get, the more I appreciate the humor he’s put into the characters he has created in film.
I can’t wait to see you guys get to the pirate sequels cause honestly it’s a good franchise and I love the reactions
I first saw this movie as kid and I fell in love with it
Johnny Depp is pitch perfect casting
The villain was amazing
Excited for the rest of this series
Gets better from here!
Naaah this was the best one. Could watch on repeat all day
That part with Will imitating Jack was Orlando's genuine impression of Jack in the moment, so it was sort of unscripted. There are a few moments like that in the series. I shall point them out 😁
One of the last great adventure films ever made. I was really lucky to grow up with movies like Pirates and LotR - you can tell that everyone involved with the films loved and appreciated the craft of filmmaking (especially in with the practical sets/effects/etc)
Oh man, are y’all for real?! I’m SO excited for you to see this series!!! 😂 The first three will always have my heart. Black Pearl is a masterpiece!
Looking forward to all of these
I love this series so much; the music, the humor, the story details they built on AFTER they realized they would need sequels! And Capt Jack Sparrow, "the greatest pirate you've ever seen".
So glad you guys enjoyed this movie, and I cannot wait to see the rest of your reactions to the series! I've been on the Disney ride once, but only years after the movies had come out, so they had already redone it to look more like the movie, supposedly.
This is his best role, in my opinion. Just like Robert Downey Jr made Marvel what it is, Johnny Depp made these movies what they are. It's a shame that they left him out because of what happened. To some extent, i get it, since it was a serious topic, but never the less, it was sad because you can tell this character means a lot to him and he has done amazing work in hospitals, with fans, etc.
I’m 29 I watched this when I was 10. Any violence I saw I think I just correlated it with fantasy. Being an adult now it’s all more realistic.
I played it over and over and on the DVD, the behind the scenes and commentary I was captivated.
FUN FACT: actors had darker/tinted contacts in while shooting any sunny days so their eyes could be open and not Squinting so hard. You can see how black their eyes are in some scenes.
This movie had 2 premiers. One in London and one at Disneyland. The director describes very different audiences. When the prisoners were trying to lure the dog with the key, it was any other moment. But at Disneyland people lost their minds. On opening weekend, you could tell who knew the ride and who didn’t by their reaction to that moment.
ohhh that's another epic that has a special place in my heart. It feels like pure nostalgia!! I was a teen in earlies 2000's and having pirates of the Caribbean, star wars, harry potter, lord of the rings... omg it was the golden era of the movies love these epics so much, when I watch them I go straight to the past. You guys are gonna LOVE the next ones, especially the second and third ones that are the canon trilogy are GOLD, and my favourite ones!!!! PS Johnny Depp is a genius actor! He made me happy in my entire teens years with Jack Sparrow, it was the most exciting thing to get a new movie and laugh hard with the entire family, repeating his sayings, me and my brother used to use SAVY? with each other all the time, such warm good memories.
Seeing this pop up made me soooo happy! I cant wait for this ride. Man I wanna join you guys. Keep up the awesome reactions!
If you think about it, Elizabeth knowing the code makes a lot of sense. When she recognizes Will as a pirate her interests are piqued in that moment so her studying pirate lore etc at a young age fits her character especially as she continues to develop throughout the trilogy.
Love the new boards for the ratings and the loyalty to potter with the little deathly hallows symbol in the Oak’s one. Normally I mainly just stick to watching Potter related reactions but you guys got me hooked into your dynamic too. Love the positivity, insight and friendship
11:40 you guys completely missed how Jack used the foot work part to trick William into moving out of his way so he could reach the door.
This movie was a big part of my early childhood. I watched it over and over and over when I was with my dad at his office. I love this movie so much and I’m so glad you’re reacting to it!
I love how the only one in this film that actually follows the “stereotypical PG” rules of piracy is Barbossa ( “pirate” accent, captain of a cursed ship, the only main character obsessed with gold, even saying “argh” at certain points) and yet he’s easily the most ruthless part of the movie, delivering two straight-up _murder_ blows without the camera cutting away (it helped that they were undead, but still).
None of you watched these? Damn, we're in for a treat! Thank you, can't wait for the other parts! They will be SO good! 👌😊
_And a small thing you can keep in the back of your mind: At some point please react to the movies from the "Underworld" franchise (vampires, werewolves), you will be basically the only channel that would have reactions to all of them._ _They are really good and KZclip reactions didn't catch up to them yet. (If you haven't seem them obviously)_
20:21 The underwater upside-down boat thing works on the condition that there is a weight attached to the top of the hull. It wouldn't work like in the movie. The boat with the air would float on the water due to buoyancy. If the air under the water somehow got to it, the boat would rise with them. So in order for it to stay that way, the downforce must be greater than the lift due to the weight.
The reason why the Black Pearl is so fast?
It was called the Wicked Wench back when Jack inherited her. She was sunk by Cutler Beckett. Jack made a deal with Davy Jones who then raised her from the depths and made her the fastest ship on the seas.
There’s ALOT of magic in this world that simply exists in the world.
Robert Downey Jr also did a lot for kids with his Iron Man character. Not only visiting kids in the hospital but investing in prosthetics for kids without hands or arms. I love how much Downey Jr redeemed himself in life - ❤️
I wish I were a kid seeing this in the theatre for the first time again. This was such a great era for movies.
As a kid in the 80s and 90s, I visited Disney World a few times, and what I remember from the ride are the dog with the key, the Port Royal pirate attack with the residents trying to escape the pirates, and the song "Yo Ho Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me." Since the movie came out, I've been to Disney once, and they've added Jack Sparrow in.
FYI: the skinny pirate with the wooden eye is played by Mackenzie Crook and he had his own tv series (which he wrote) along with Toby Jones called The Detectorists. It is a British show about 2 friends Crook and Jones that have a hobby of metal detecting across the british countryside. It’s a very well written show and something different that you guys might enjoy. I watch it on Acorn channel but it’s also on Amazon Prime video.
I went from girl to woman when I saw Captain Jack Sparrow the first time 🤣 This movie will always have a special place in my heart
😂 He did it for me in 21 Jump Street!
Hahaha 😆 you know
@Angela Lurtz Thank you for your kind words. I will strive to improve my thought process. Good day 👸
@EliteGameplayX what are you imagining I mean by that? You're literally the one making it something gross... that's YOUR brain, so maybe focus some time and energy on that. Have a nice day, hope you heal whatever's ailing you inside ❤
Keira was also filming Pride & Prejudice at the same time as filming pirates movies :) I would LOVE your reaction to it!!
Another cracking series to react to! I feel like Geoffrey Rush (Barbossa) is underrated in these movies, he is a genius
Great reaction and talk at the end as always. As others have said the first three films are a contained trilogy then it's best to think of the next two as stand alone Jack Sparrow adventures. So yes there are 5 films but it's technically 3 stories set around pirates
The scene at the prison with the pirates locked in the cell and a mangy dog holding the cell key in it's mouth is a multiple decades old and very classic scene in The Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disney World. 🏴☠️
These movies were my childhood. Johnny Depp is a legend. At Worlds End is my favorite. Enjoy the series guys!!!
One of my favorite movie franchises ever! I love Johnny and Captain Jack! Just amazing 😍
9:05 you cut out the best part, Jack’s response of “unless, of course, he knew you wouldn’t believe the truth, even if he told it to you”
In the audio commentary Knightley said she made the mistake of actually eating the food during 24:43 instead of spitting it out between takes like most actors would and she got more than a little sick because the stage they were on was moving to mimic a ship in water~
So excited to see this series of reactions!!! I love all the "Pirate" movies. A lot of terrific one liner's in each movie.
Some of my favorite behind the scenes.
1. Kira Knightly, was a rookie to acting at time, was told to spit out the food between shots, but decided to swallow it. She regretted it in the days after.
2. The boat Kira Knightly had for the island scenes, hit a rock and began sinking.
3. When Kira Knightly kissed Orlando Bloom, the other girls behind the camera were glaring murderously at her. Because it was Orlando Bloom.
This was the franchise that started the whole post-credit thing ^^ Been loving your reactions and I am definitely down for the ride on this one too!
@Mellow Marsh No kidding? Even I don't know what I am talking about then it seems :)
Actually The Fast and the Furious did it first (2001)
Absolutely loved these movies, watched them over and over again. I could speak word for word back in the days.
Captain Jack is one of my alltime favorite characters even named my second son Jack.
Favorite line: "but why is rum gone"
I feel like when jack keeps appearing on the treasure island Barbossa is thinking
"does he just respawn here??"
This is one of those movies where I can’t believe people haven’t seen it. I would sneak downstairs after bedtime to catch a glimpse of this movie when I was younger.
I remember watching this film when i was very young with my family. And just with the entrance of Jack sparrow, we all knew his character was gonna be so good!
The canoe under the water.
It's quite a normal thing, you can try it home with, for example, sumberging a glass upside down into the bathtub full of water. Its called 'air pocket'.
The possibility of two men, even if one of them is Captain Jack Sparrow, being able to hold a boat under the water with such pressure from the air inside/under it, is completely different story :)
There’s several scenes & lines of dialogue (Especially from Barbossa.) that are directly from the original ride, at Disneyland. Gibbs sleeping with the pigs, the jail scene (Including the dog with the keys.) Barbossa’s, “Strike y’er colors, ya bloomin’ cockroaches!” (He uses lines from the ride, in several of the flicks, in the series.) Especially the song, “Yo ho! Yo ho! A Pirate’s Life for Me!” Is heard through most of the park attraction.
these are good movies. i think ive only seenthe first three. but yeah they are a good time and the cast is always good. i went through a big pirate phase in college, which was around this time. i hung out with some local actors who were a pirate crew you could hire for events and did coreographed fights and black powder cannon shows ect and it was a lot of fun. i still have my wench costume somewhere, blade in the garter and all.
I can’t believe you guys haven’t had the chance to watch it till now BUT I’m also kinda super glad because now I can be part of the experience with you
Its not surprising that she knew the code.
They set it up in the very first scene.
Pirates fascinated her since childhood, ofc she would know anything there is to know, at least from what is to be found in literature.
The code very likely to be one to have been documented.
I was kind of obsessed with this as a kid. The first 3 if I'm honest lol It introduced me to some incredible actors and pirates are obviously an interesting topic if we're all watching movies on them! I'm glad y'all enjoyed this one. I'm a relatively new subscriber and you're all super entertaining and honest on your opinions. Keep it comin, guys!
If you enjoy this movie series I can definitely recommend Black Sails. Its such a underrated series
Oh what a fun reaction! Thanks guys!
Thank you and thanks for watching 🤙😁
I love you guys so much 😁
I've watched your Lord of the Rings reactions three times now, and will rewatch them again, I'm sure!
I love this film, but sadly it's by far the best one, but the 2d and 3d are pretty good too 😋
We appreciate it! :)
Fun fact: Kiera Knightley was only seventeen when they started filming this movie. So talented!
That's really clever editing there. It does make it sound a bit odd, but removing the music like that sure makes it easier to avoid copyright issues and leaves us with more intact scenes. Really appreciate that. Gotta love modern technology.
In my opinion by far the best movie of the series, one of my favourites of all time. I'm not a huge fan of the other movies, but maybe you'll enjoy them.
I love this franchise! Johnny Depp just did an amazing job and I do think that without him there wouldn't be a Jack Sparrow. No one else could do it like him, he was perfect for this role!
Everything about these movies are great. The action, the comedy, the acting, the music and everything in between.
Jack Sparrow was loosely based on the historical pirate Calico Jack but I believe for mannerisms Depp took a lot of inspiration from Keith Richards. This was a fun movie, and far better than it had any right to be. Just the blacksmith fight was more than I expected when I first saw it. A true pirate high adventure up there with Sea Hawk and Captain Blood.
🤣 the 3 of you cheering "yeah" when Jack appears 😍
Omg at 38:40-38:50, the concern and then realization/relief you guys go through is Adorable and exactly how I reacted the first time. Also, enjoyed the shout out for Forged In Fire, my husband and I love that show.
My favorite series hands down. It's a classic.
The first three movies are my favourite trilogy ever made. I had an entire wall in my bedroom covered in posters from these movies.
I also liked the fourth and fifth movies a lot too!
The second one is so great, i really hope you enjoy it!
Yes!!! I’m so excited for you guys to watch this series, it’s one of my all time favorites and it’s so fun to see others experience it for the first time. Thanks guys!!!
I remember going to the cinema to watch this for Orlando Bloom, leaving the cinema absolutely fascinated by Barbossa.
The actor who played the governor of Port Royal, (Elizabeth's dad) was Jonathan Pryce. Who you might know as The High Sparrow from Game of Thrones. He was also in Ronin, Glengarry Glen Ross, Evita, The Brothers Grimm and of course, the James Bond Movie, Tomorrow Never Dies.
I first became acquainted with him as the main character in the 80's cult classic Brazil. I highly recommend it. It was made by Terry Gilliam( of Monty Python fame) and has a pretty all star cast. Alongside Pryce, you get Robert De Niro, Bob Hoskins(from Unleashed, Hook, Super Mario Brothers, etc...), Ian Holm(Bilbo Baggins from LotR and Ash from Alien), Jim Broadbent(Prof. Slughorn from HP, and The Professor that the Pevensie children stay with in The Chronicles of Narnia), and Michael Palin(one of the other Pythons.)
This and the 2nd are the best by far. Hope you enjoy the whole series.
I'm so excited for this. I love the themes and the questions it comes up with and holds up a dirty barnacle encrusted mirror to society.
I think that this series, at least the 3 parter trilogy is actually a whole lot better than the critics make it out to be, parts 2 and 3 were panned pretty badly back then. There is actually some deep lore that is really integrated in these three films that was missed due to the cinema viewer mindset of the time when it premiered. Granted it, maybe, is a bit TOO packed full of lore and needed to be divided into 2 parts in the last one, BUT, the movie era called for trilogies thus needed to tie up all the threads created within the trilogy, and the world was not well versed in marvel-esque universes at this time especially for what you'd call a simple popcorn movie.
No one screamed to demand to go as deep lore bound as Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, it was just based on a ride in a theme park. Yet, it still presents itself as worthy to bravely asks questions. What really is a pirate? What makes a good man a run a foul to be labeled a pirate? Afterall, all pirates do what they want to do, both bad and good. However, does that make them so much more wrong when The Crown made women subservient and men slaves among the shadiest things? They hung anyone who disobeys such declarations of law. What does it mean to be the best or worst pirate on the sea? Is it being the baddest pirate on the sea or is it being the truest pirate of the sea? What does freedom on the sea really mean? Does freedom on the sea really have a code? What is it worth to hold the power to make your own decisions and be judged not by a king but by the sea itself? I don't think that people were ready to ask those questions back then from a movie about pirates made by Disney.
James Norrington in my opinion had one of the best character development in the entire story, what's great about this story was a lot of the side characters had great story arcs.
The actor that plays Elisabeths father is Jonathan Pryce and as you said, he's been in a lot of films and tv over the years.
Personally I know him best from his stage work though - among other roles he played The Engineer in both the original London and Broadway casts of Miss Saigon.
"best start believing in ghost stories ms turner because you're in one" is such a good line
I'm so excited for this! This movies are some of my favorites, looking forward to hear what you guys think! 💖
Iam so happy you guys are watching POTC. I personally love the Cast (especially Johnny, he is such an amazing actor). It gets better but you are right there are no "big messages or lessons". Just good old popcorn movies which is great. Loved the reaction
Using a container of trapped air, whether slightly larger than a head or much bigger, was a common way for the earliest 'divers' to go deeper or stay longer than simply holding ones breath can achieve. This concept was used in Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and was one of the game mechanics I enjoyed. Over time this was improved by using pumps to send fresh air down to the diver, and was the main way to dive until compressed air tanks were introduced.
As far as the boat in the movie, buoyancy versus ballast is the only question to whether they could do that as long as the boat doesn't 'bleed' too much air. The weight of the boat needs to offset the air trapped - ever try to pull a blow up raft under water?
