/tv/, will we ever have a movie this based again in our lifetimes?
What happened to Johnny Depp????
Also Orlando Bloom is one of the worst actors in the world, he is Tommy Weisau tier. How he got a leading role in two of the biggest thrilogys ever baffles me.
He ruins all three movies, at least he has almost no lines in lotr and is carried by sean bean in the first one
Nah, the first sequel was pretty good. Curse of the Black Pearl was a 10/10, the perfect adventure film. It's one of those epic scoped generational films like Jurassic Park.
Dead Man's Chest was a 9/10. You had to suspend disbelief at some 'making this up as we go along' parts, like Bootstrap Will being on Davy Jones's boat, Sparrow secretly having a deal with Davy Jones from years before, etc etc. But man, all the new elements were really fresh and great. Davy Jones himself still looks better than modern CGI and the Kraken was fantastic.
At World's End was a 5/10. No one likes movies that were split in half and the handwaving they did between films was shit. Davy Jones was an unstoppable threat at the end of the last movie, then between movies he was a neutered bitchboy and was never a threat again. The unstoppable Kraken? How would they deal with that!? Oh, he was killed offscreen between movies. And then the ending was shit too. 'Will Turner becomes Davy Jones XDDDD'. Not to mention 'Look guys, Keith Richards is his dad! That's who Johnny Depp based his character on! XDDDD' I mean, overall it wasn't bad, but compared to the two earlier entries it suffers badly.
On Stranger Tides was a 3/10 obvious cashgrab on the success of the trilogy with forgettable characters, non-existent stakes and a plot you forgot hours after watching it.
First one had best Barbossa.
> I feel...cold
Also, fuck you sequels.
Fuck year OP
Pirates are really underrated imo, you didnt even mention the amazing supporting cast, cpt barbosa, his two comic relief goons that were actually intimadating im scenes('ello Poppit), the british commaders with sticks up their asses.
Thou bloom kinda brings it down, image if like fassbender or someone else got that role, would be so much better.
I only like Dead Man's Chest.
The first one was too tame, the third one didn't feel cohesive anymore and the fourth one is really bad and looks painfully direct to video at times.
The first one had a supernatural element with the cursed gold while the second and third went way too far into the supernatural bullshit. The first movie worked because it was about pirates being pirates and everyone cheating everyone at every turn. The next two were about... fuck I forget.
>Action scenes that draw on far too long
>Humor is hit-and-miss
>Dialogue is no where near Tarantino level
>Keira Knightly is 10/10 but can't act for shit
>Orlando Bloom's is soap opera worthy at best
I agree with everything you said. I really don't understand why /tv/ shits on the two sequels so hard. They're different than the first, sure, but if you watch them knowing that and not expecting something similar to Curse, they're fucking amazing action/adventure movies. I'd say the best of their decade, with pretty much no competition, apart from LotR.
>you will never fuck Carrie Fisher in the 1970's or 1980's
Just fucking end it, family.
>Keira Knightly is 10/10 but can't act for shit
>>Orlando Bloom's is soap opera worthy at best
This is a fucking meme, just like "Leo shouts xd". No, I'm not comparing them, Leo is a much better actor, but Orlando - sure, he's pretty stiff at times, but he isn't nearly as bad as he's made out to be.
>not only caring about plot, but presenting and "critiquing" it as the most important aspect of the films
>he actually fell for the "Leo is a bad actor" meme
Wow, she really was. I just started watching the first one again, and in the first scene with her and Orlando, where she tells him not to call her Ms. Swan, she even has the teeth.
kind of pisses me off that Depp doesn't credit Al Jourgensen as one of the inspirations for Jack Sparrow. i mean, it's clear to anyone who knows Ministry, the only thing Keith about the character is the voice.
Keith is indeed a key ingredient in Jack Sparrow, but so is Al but Depp won't credit Al because he was mean to him and his friends
I thought the sequels were all terrible
Can someone explain if tv is just memeing when they say they are good or should I watch them again, cause I fucking agree with the OPs assessment of the original 10/10
What exactly did they do to have the Davy Jones CGI so good that it is better than anything that's been done 10 years later?
That isn't an exaggeration, it really is better. What did they do that was so different?
Yeah, comfortable as fuck.
Easily my favourite adventure movie/franchise.
4th one felt off tho, I liked the blackbeard element (and barbossa getting his cutlass in the end fuggg) but angelica as character was unnecessary.
Gibbs is my favourite character tho.
I hope they won't screw up this years part as they did with fourth.
and yes i know zimmer is hack
>india-quality ~800mb 720p yify rips
>relies on torrent protocol so if there's noone to seed youre fucked anyways.
If you're torrenting, do it correctly you faggot.
4.0-4.5GB 720p rips are the comfiest, decent video bitrate, decent audio bitrate and still fits on cheap as fuck single layer DVD for ultimate long term storage.
