    CORRECT!!

    I absolutely love POTC but I would never go see a movie without Johnny Depp. And Davey Jones is the least interesting character in the entire series. He was so blah as a villain. Norrington is more interesting than him. Regardless it was Depp's off the wall character that carries the film.

    Oh please. You've seen plenty of movies without Johnny Depp.

    Did you ever go on the ride before they installed Depp animatronic characters? If so, then there goes your Depp-only theory.

POTC is a creative universe, and all sorts of characters, with all sorts of stories, exist in it. Sure, Jack's a great character, and we love him, and Depp is terrific in it, but that's not the ONLY story to be told from that world. There are tons and tons of others that could very easily become full-fledged movies (and they wouldn't have to cost $300 million a pop, either).

    I'd even be amenable to a cable TV series.
    I have to disagree. Capt Jack Sparrow is the heart of the POTC movies. Without him, there's no point. Sure, there are a few other characters worthy of delving into their stories...but, Jack lends a certain je ne sais quoi that would surely be missed.

    I also think a tv series would be a terrible idea. Tv...is the graveyard for good movies. As soon as a blockbuster becomes a series...you can sign it's death warrant. The thrill is over.

    I agree. As I've said. If Johnny isn't in it, I won't be wasting my money. As much as I love POTC.....it just won't tempt me with out my Capt Jack.

    It's like this....

    When they wrote the story of Titanic..they put in the characters of Rose and Jack to pull movie goers into the story. To make them emotionally connect to the movie. That way, they would FEEL the tragedy, instead of just seeing it.

    With POTC...they basically did the same. They gave us Capt Jack Sparrow. An oddly attractive pirate with elaborate hand gestures, a fondness for rum, women and gold....and an accent slightly more decipherable than Ozzy Osbournes. Immediately, we fell for him. It's the old saying..."women want him...men want to BE him". Focusing the movie on him, drew our interest towards him. Now, we watch to find out what happens to him. To follow him...and his story.

    Sure, the ride existed without Jack. But, quite simple....we didn't know Jack. Now, we do. And we like him.

    A POTC movie without Jack....isn't a POTC movie worth watching.

    Oh please.. yourself. You know I meant I wouldn't go to any POTC movie without Johnny Depp in it. Not that I would forgo all movies forever that didn't have him in it. Riding a ride and watching a movie are two very separate things, at least they should be.

    As for TV, I have to disagree in general although for pirates in specific I agree that it would most likely be horrible. I actually like TV better anymore. I think there is more creativity and better writing on most TV shows than in movies nowadays. TV takes risks that mainstream film doesn't.

    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

    The Movies and the Ride are truly seperate identities. Sure TDA pushed them together with refrences to one another, but the Movies need Jack while the ride doesn't. Besides, if Jack taps out, all three of the main characters are out leaving nothing but secondary characters to fill in their spots.

    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

    Seriously. Besides, Johnny said that his contract was contingent on his approval of the script. He can just say that he doesn't like the script and then we won't even get a 4th movie. This is a travesty.

    That "article" really is upfront, and it just appears to be trying to hype news from something that ain't. I wouldnt trust it at all. Johnny didn't like the 2nd and 3rd Pirates????????? Balderdash!

    Or, they could just not make any Pirates 5, wait a decade or two, then revisit the franchise with all new characters, and MAYBE a cameo by an aging Johnny Depp.

    Talking Re: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

    So I believe On Stranger Tides is a book from 1988, about a man named Jack who is looking for the Fountain of Youth, and the bad guy is Blackbeard.

    Sounds awesome!

    Sooo excited, can't wait! I'm so first in line! Midnight showing, anyone?

    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

    Someone posted that previous story earlier. I wonder how that affected the first three films?

    It seems Disney even owns the rights for that story (link)
