    Re: Rank the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!

    1- It's the original and the best of them all. Need I really explain why?
    2- I LOVE Davy Jones and the story behind him that unravels and Will finally getting to meet his father. There are some great fight sequences and it was great to see nearly all of the original cast back.
    3- Had it's unnecessary parts but had some great ones too. Head over heels for the sword fight/marriage vows. It had that true Pirates magic to it. I also loved that Barbossa was back and Beckett Davy Jones were both tied for villain.
    4- Had some funny parts and some good fight scenes but the movie was flat. It lacked so much that it just sunk.

    1 - No one expected it to be as amazing as it was
    4 - Without Will and Elizabeth it was better for me
    3 - I liked having the Jack vs Barbossa banter all the time
    2 - Great movie, but I like Barbossa more then Davy Jones

    1. Curse of the Black Pearl - had the best setting, humor, acting and storyline of them all.

    2. On Stranger Tides - I felt that it returned to a similar style as the first movie. It brought back Barbossa and introduced Blackbeard. Less crazy Jack moments. And I loved the new ship.

    3. At World's End - Not much better than DMC. Hated the parts with Jack out of his mind in Davy Jones' locker - it was just weird and stupid. I didn't care for Tia Dalma or Davy Jones characters/storyline. I wasn't happy with Elizabeth and Will's storyline until the end of the movie. I did enjoy the introduction of new pirates, especially Jack's father. I also liked the meeting of the Brethren Court and the final battle at the end of the movie.

    4. Dead Man's Chest - I hated what they did to the Will/Elizabeth relationship and what they tried to do with Elizabeth and Jack. They turned Will into a ninny. I would have been interested in seeing his character growing more strong and confident but they decided to do that with Elizabeth instead and make Will look more weak and easily fooled in the sequels. I didn't care for the cannibal island, kraken, Tia Dalma, or Davy Jones and his men. The sword fight with Jack/Will/Norrington was far too long. Too much action, not enough substance in this film. I just didn't like the direction they went after the first movie at all. If I remember right, this is also where they started introducing the stupid mini-Jacks etc. I had no interest in it. And it was missing Barbossa! The best part was the last few minutes.

    Yeah, I know. But I'm moving to Calgary in about a week and a half so I have too much on my mind right now. Here's hoping I get to see it this week... or better yet, on the IMAX in Calgary.

    1. PotC 1 ~ Incredibly creative story and great cast of actors, amazing special effects, great cinematography, wonderful score!
    2. PotC 2&3 (I consider 2&3, one long movie) ~ Great new characters added to an already terrific cast, returning storywriters extend and expand the original story with even more creative ideas. Musical Score built upon by Hans Zimmer, even more creative special effects for Davy Jones and his crew!
    3. PofC 4 ~ Return of some key character, with a plot that attempts to match the 1st movie, but ends up with a sloppier storyline, many unexplained significant points, confuses mermaids with sirens, (and giving the mermaid spiderman powers was beyond ludicrous). Introduces at least a couple of characters with a questionable love story, and then don't give much of a reason to believe that they really are in love. Blackbeards backstory is missing too much info. However Angelica is a great addition to the cast of the other returning characters. Barbossa has a wonderful new role in this movie, and he and Jack continue their bickering, which still remains fun. This movie does manage to capture some of the magic from the original trilogy, however, it's falls short of those movies.

    Re: Rank the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!

    Finally saw the 4th so here's my ranking...

    1. The Curse of the Black Pearl - hey it's the first adventure with Captains Jack and Barbossa. Usually nothing beats the original.
    2. On Stranger Tides - Felt like watching Raiders of the Lost Ark - including the super natural climax at the end. Loved the simpler story, the innuendos, and the new characters.
    3. At World's End - definitely the most epic in terms of locales and effects, but more isn't always better.
    4. Dead Man's Chest - This one feels like the Temple of Doom episode of this series. Some really gross parts (i.e. crow pecking at a guy's eyeball) peppered with some outlandish humour and juvenile performance by Captain Jack. I didn't like it that much at first, but it has grown on me with each subsequent viewing. Still the weakest in the series though. But, Davy Jones was a highlight.

    The great thing about this series is that they are doing different things with each installment. Looking forward to #5!
