Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ★★★★★

You will remember this as the day you almost caught...Captain Jack Sparrow!!
I’ve seen a ton of people recently start their POTC marathon so I thought why not join in the fun because I haven’t seen all the films in years. This one I did remember stuff about because I have seen it a bunch but the last time I watched it was like 3 years ago and I didn’t even finish it but I think this is my favourite thing Disney has ever made!! When it comes to the best casting choices ever 2 come to mind. Those being JK Simmonds as J Jonah Jamison in Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy and Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow!! Depp has everything down when it comes to this character, from the walk to his line delivery this is one of my favourite performances ever. POTC The Curse of the Black Pearl is just the definition of fun!! The thing that impressed me the most is that they made this movie (and then an entire franchise) from a ride at Disney Word, I’ve been on the ride multiple times and I love seeing the references to the ride in this film like the prison cell and the dog. I also have to mention the awesome performances from both Orlando Bloom (coolest name ever) & Keira Knightley. The fact that Orlando Bloom did this and LOTR Return of the King in the same year still blows me away and Keira Knightley is also excellent and has great chemistry with Bloom & Depp. Probably the most iconic part and one of the best aspects is the score which is one of my favourites. It’s always placed at the best moments and adds so much to the already great action sequences. Geoffrey Rush’s Barbossa is such a cool antagonist and that whole scene in the caves with the curse coming into play is one of my favourite action scenes ever. The Curse of the Black Pearl currently sits in my top 50 favourite films of all time and although that list changes almost daily, this is my favourite thing Disney has ever made!!
