    Great article. I saw the 8 pm showing of the movie last night. It was a little confusing, but I liked it. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End was fashioned from a 1,000 kilo block of pure awesome with an awesome hammer and an awesome chisel and finished with 1200 grit awesome sandpaper and protected with awesome shellac.


    Plus it had an undead monkey...

    And Davy Jones.

    I hope someone will agree with me that the movie was hard to understand for some...

    I'm a pirate history fanatic as well as a former Disney employee and I got it all.

    It did have everything maybe too much for the casual pirate fan?

    Judging from the responses of the crowds watching the film, I'd have to disagree with you.


    I LOVE the movie! Now it's my favorite film. Absolutely wonderful work from the people who brought all of this together.

    As for Will and Elizabeth? What are you talking about, Sue? Orlando Bloom has already said that he'd sign on to do Pirates 4 if it became a reality, along with Johnny Depp.

    All in all, a great film. A definate improvement from the last and it wasn't until Geoffrey Rush was back that I realised just how much of a void he made by not being included in Dead man's chest.

    Great use of effects, great character resolution. My only complaint is with the MPAA's hypocrasy in allowing the level of violence that it did to get A PG-13 rating. There were some very graphic kills in this one, including a woman being shot in the head.

    But as long as they don't show boobs, I guess it's ok...

    It was a bit hard to uinderstand at times what with the double-, triple-, and quadruple-crosses. As for being a pirate history fanatic, I think at this point the PotC franchise has stepped beyond the bounds of history and mythology and into pure fantasy.

    Speaking of history am I the only one who noticed Blackbeard's flag in the Pirate armada?

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End surpassed every expectaction I could have ever dreamed of having for the film. Simply put: it was bloody amazing.

    There were so many things I really LOVED about this movie, and, I admit, a couple I hated. XP
    It doesn't stop me from wanting to watch it over and over until the DVD comes out, though.

    It wasn't random. Will consistently mocked Davy Jones or was just an outright jerk to him, due to the fact that Will wanted to get back at him for his father's sake. And if you also remember, Will escaped the Flying Dutchman in DMC, so he still had some sort of debt to Jones...not an official one, but he was a prisoner. Then Jones tried to kill him with the Kraken and failed. Jones had every intent to get Will at some point.

    Norrington, I would agree with at first. But if he had lived any longer, I think it just would have ruined everything for all of the other characters. I mean, he kissed Elizabeth (there was a total groan from the audience when that happened)...if he had lived past that, I think everyone would have been ready to kill both him and Elizabeth, and the third film had to sort of make up for the crap they had been doing previously-justify their characters, if you will. And what more could Norrington have done to progress? He really had nothing left. His whole world was destroyed, and he certainly couldn't ever accept to become a pirate himself. It wouldn't have worked.

    It also set up the climax that Will would have with his father. The audience at that point still had no true conception of how far-gone Bootstrap was by that point. They needed to see how much of his soul had been wiped away.
