Major spoiler for me, as I had not yet seen the second.

Really enjoyed it, though. I think having to see all that water and drinking a large coca-cola gave me bladder problems because I had to urinate three times during the movie. It ticked me off something fierce. No, I could not hold it. Well, I probably could have, but I am out of practice.

I thought the sea battles were amazing. Well, amazing may not be the word, I can sort of expect this stuff to be done nowadays with technology and all. Well, it was the fight scenes, of course, that kept me watching it. I originally wanted to just sleep through it, but that would have been a waste of a ticket.

Watched Dead Man's Chest and realized...there was not too much I missed out on. There goes two and a half hours of my life I could have used RPing. Dead Man's Chest was, I found, to be the most boring of the three.

Oh well, I have seen all three. Now I do not need to complain about watching the third one second.

It is supposed to be implied, I guess, but to avoid being rude...

Thoughts on At World's End?

Posted by: Kanki-chan May 29 2007, 04:04 PM
I liked the third movie better than the second, but that was partly because more seemed to have happened during those three hours than what the second movie did in that amount of time.

Actually, this was the first time I'd gone out to see a movie since December, so I was glad that I wasn't disappointed in the movie-especially some of the humor they put into it (a midget with a maritime bazooka-hilarious). It did keep my friends and I talking on the drive home, especially since we were trying to figure out who betrayed whom.

All in all, I think that At World's End is worth the movie ticket-just don't drink a lot of soda when you go see it =P

Yes, especially a large soda...well, that counts for a lot of soda. :/

Anyway...

My favorite scene was the annhialation of Lord Becket's ship. No, I do not care about the spelling of his name. Therefore I will not ask, but gravely leave the mistake of implying that I really do want the correct spelling in typing this. How is it implied? I don't know, but I think it would be. Especially for those who are obsessed with spelling anything and everything that has a correct spelling correctly.

Oh yeah...and what was with the peanuts? I kinda missed out on that.

Ok, yea, i liked the movie, not that bad, and the peanut part? Hilarious! Anyway, the point was that he was going mad, so, he see's "himself" eating stuff that he should be eatinmg, so, he shoots air, but think he shoots himself... hmm... also, the part with the ship was funny, as nothing is happening, and he thinks that his "crew" comprising of himself, is doing nothing, so, he kills them constantly, but, seeing as there not there, they can't die.
yea....

spoilers have ended, so, if you have just read this post, it's your own fault.

Beware as I now mention things that really dont need to be said! This is pretty much in regards to cannons. Yeah, none of the cannons I saw would have been able to rip apart ships anywhere close to that. The Black Pearl wasnt that heavily armed honestly. At least compared to the Endeavor.

Did you see that thing? It was giant! There were not many ships made that big. It would have ruined the Pearl and the Dutchman easily. The thing is, the Pearl would have fired and its cannons would have bounced off. While the Endeavor would have ripped the Pearl a new one.

Horribly incorrect cannon sizes to damage aside it certainly was an interesting movie. At times you wondered exactly what the plot was. There also seemed to be a nice bit of things that were left rather open, or I should say unexplained. Such as the pirate in red who kept the code. In case I just missed it, they never did really say who that was.

Then there was the sort of unfinished stuff with Calypso. It just sort of dropped. She is there, then not there and no more mention of her. Now, I am about to go into one of my more spoiler things, as in less vauge and such. So if you havent seen it I would stop reading, unless you dont care and in that case do whatever you want.

Last warning. Ok, I felt that Norrington's death was pathetic. Just horribly lame. Then again I liked the admiral and felt he deserved better than a stake through him by a mindless fishman... It would have been much better if his death had some sort of meaning. Have him duel someone or something! Not just die. Lame, very lame.

The Kraken also was a bit dissapointing. Yes, it did end up serving as a nice symbol to Jack about the state the world was in. Which reminds me, a little title at the start about how long the time between the second and third movie would have been nice.

For the fight scenes, well honestly, the best one to me was when Barbossa married the two of them while fighting. To me that was just too good to be beaten. Also I noticed a trend with Jack using rope to fly from ship to ship, explains the name Sparrow.

I think I have covered enough about it in this post so let me leave off with another great moment from the film: FLYING FLAMING MONKEY!!!

again, more spoilers...



The monkey was hilarious, but, not the funniest part in the movie. In my eyes, seeing davy jones standing in a bucket of water, just reminds me that he's an octopus with legs and a crab hand. I love that scene...

yeah, yeah, yeah, this post is pretty much a spoiler post, although most of this is what my sister and I got out of the movie:

-The guy in red that had a big problem with rule-breaker's was prolly Jack's Dad (kinda looks the same and would explain why he took out the mummified head, don't ya think?)

-I'm pretty sure the time between Pirates 2 and 3 was however long it took for the crew of the Black Pearl to sail to Singapore at the beginning of the movie

-What got me on Calypso was more of the timeline, like why they both feel that one betrayed the other. I know he first had to carve out his heart to be the captain, then did he get mad at being jilted one of those days, or did he just not care about his job?

-Anyway, my favorite moment was when they tried releasing Calypso. First Barbosa tries and makes a fool of himself, then the one-eyed guy gets it right! Okay, on second thought, the fact that one of the smaller characters got it right was kinda weird...

Either his father or brother. Both make an equal amount of sense really. As for the time frame between movies, its not so much about how long it was, but rather they should have said how long it was. I mean I assume given their trip that it was about a year or so.

As for why Jones was upset at her not being there, well lets think about this for a bit. Ten years out at sea, so thats 3652 days about. With no rum I might add. Then he gets a single day to go ashore and spend it with his love and she isnt there. That would cause a lot of people to become upset I would think.

Oh come on! That guy is awesome! Not as awesome as the two soliders who were guarding the chest from the first movie, but still good. I mean come on, they debate if fishmen caused a breakdown in millitary command. What more do you want?

As for Jack's insanity, do you think he just got that when he died, or was he always like that? Finally one last question: Does he plan all this out, or does he make it up as he goes along?

Posted by: flamento Jun 9 2007, 07:23 AM
spoilers, pretty much like most of the posts here...


ok, the guy in red IS jacks father, I remember on IMDB ages before they gave keith the name "captain Teague" they merly named him "Jack's father".

Now, being out to sea for 10 years, isn't really a go thing, is it? Not to mention with the loss of rum. I mean, rum is the drink of a pirate, and, no matter how you cut the cake, good ol' davy is a pirate. I love davy jones accent. It's brilliant.

Ragetti and Pintel are kick ass. The only other comic relief pair that ar ebetter then Pintel and Ragetti, are the two marines, Mullroy, and Murtogg. Brilliant actors, shame they weren't in the second one...

As for jacks insanity, well, he's always been abit "not there"

well, lets just say one thing...

" Sea turtles mate, Sea turtles"

oh come on, we all know that being in Davy Jone's Locker would make anyone insane, not to mention the fact that he was previously marooned on an island before the whole movie series started.

As for the idea on whther he plans things out or makes it up as he goes along, I'm pretty sure it's more like he has a master goal, but how he reaches that goal changes constantly.

Posted by: Fire Fist Ace Jun 9 2007, 04:56 PM
Alright, I'm going to try and answer most of these questions as best as I can. I think that the thing with Jack was a combination of things 1) He was killed, 2) he was in Davy Jones' Locker, and 3) He was alone on a huge ship and one of the things that Jack hated was being alone, it was the one thing he hated when he thought about being the next Flying Dutchman. Now, at the end he was alone again, but he didn't mind it because it was on his own terms and he knew he where he was going.

Also, the reason the Endeavour lost was because he was so arrogant about having Davy Jones on his side he didn't believe Davy would ever lose. And I liked his death, it seemed fitting, he died the fitting way a captain should die, going down with his ship. He could have easily jump off but instead he remained.

The Maelstrom was all Calypso's doing, it was the point of if she was involved, it would have been to help Davy Jones, it was Will telling her who betrayed her that caused her to simply vanish and take her wrath out on both sides.

The whole squid thing sucked, an off-screen death is the worst way to die.I would have liked to see a thing about the squid, maybe a quick flash back. Maybe we'll have a deleted scene on the dvd. Who knows.

Also, I think Jack just ad-libs and figures everything will be alright in the end. On the other hand, I also think he can be two steps ahead when he wants to. Like how he stole the map at the end of the movie.

There is no way a ship as small as the Pearl could even hope to touch the Endeavour, ever. Arrogance or not, the thing was just too big for the small guns of the Pearl to do anything.

Now of course they couldnt have emulate real naval warfare for the movie. Given that ships would pound on each other for sometimes hours before any real damage was made. Of course this depends on the size of the guns and other things. Also, there would be muketmen on the deck of the Endeavour firing down onto the deck of the Pearl to try and kill the captain, as well as anyone else.

Then there would be the size of the crews, oh boy. The Endeavour could have about 800 men on it. Yeah, they would just be screwed no matter how you look at it. Cant fight it or board it, so you are left with running. Now that would be easy seeing as how a ship that large is just a floating gun plateform and cant really move.

Also Becket wasnt a captain, he just bought everything up and assumed control. After all thats good business.

Oh and cannons neither explode or leave huge holes like that when it hits. The hulls on these ships could be 16" of solid oak. Also most sailors died from splinters and other such things from a shot hitting the wall and breaking it, but not punching through.

Finally, how did the cannons of the Pearl manage to reach the deck of the Endeavour? No really, it was so much small...
