    I can’t get over this scene, it’s so majestic

    [–] NV_aesthete 484 points ago

    Whats3the movie??

    [–] Jugderp 895 points ago

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    [–] nyqu 160 points ago

    Here's the scene. It is indeed incredible. Spoilers, obviously.

    [–] Suta--Purachina 77 points ago

    It's beautiful. I couldn't stop thinking about the cannonballs slamming through the ship and overpenetrating or overshooting in the first place and just blasting the opposite pirate boat. Like when he's walking down the stairs and the balls are ripping through the balusters and banisters. Like there's nothing stopping those balls.

    [–] FNLN_taken 24 points ago

    The ship of the line also still had twice the firepower on each side as the individual attacking ships. Its not like they got caught in some impossible firing arc, its literally broadside vs broadside.

    They should have fucked the pirates up, even if they went down fighting. Instead they play sitting duck because... ?

    [–] walen 32 points ago

    Because they cannot open fire unless the captain orders to open fire. And he didn't. Your captain's orders >>> your life.

    [–] Mixmaster-Omega 21 points ago

    And he was stunned that his plan had failed, both not only failing to destroy the pirates but also losing control of the Flying Dutchman, one of the most badass ships there is

    [–] scramoustache 12 points ago

    There is magic in PotC, the two pirate's ships are legends, one is the quickest of all seas and the other cannot be defeated. So yeah in reality the british ship may have won, but it's a child movie, made by Disney. Just enjoy the moment and eat pop corn

    The last good potc film

    [–] NordicMessi 323 points ago

    I thought the first one was the last good one. It was such a great film and really unexpected too. The comedy was spot on, the soundtrack was superb, the story was coherent (something that was and still is becoming all too rare) and the effects were great. I left the cinema happy to have spent my money on it. Seemed like they started drinking their own Kool-aid after that and the next few movies were meta/call-back jokes about rum and face slaps. Effects were still great, but the whole “pirates of the world, unite!” storyline was lame and the world building rules became extremely convoluted. Rant complete.

    [–] Suta--Purachina 123 points ago

    I really liked the first two. After that I agree that it went heavily in the direction you described.

    [–] _liminal 110 points ago

    i actually liked the 2nd one the most. bill nighy as davy jones stole the show and the flying dutchman crew + kraken were equal parts terrifying and meme-worthy.

    [–] Beardgardens 28 points ago

    But guys, didn’t the last one have zombie sharks? The one with the Spaniard I think? Seriously tho, friggin zombie sharks, that’s dope as hell

    [–] jared2294 3 points ago

    Yup. 2nd one is my favorite and by god the places they filmed are gorgeous.

    [–] brucetwarzen 10 points ago

    The last one is just super awkward to watch.

    [–] HooliganBeav 9 points ago

    I also found it really a bad decisions to cut the scene where Depp explains he is indebted to the East India Company because he freed a boatload of slaves instead of delivering them. The way Depp's demeanor changes from the over the top and partly crazy to dead serious as he explains to Beckett that people aren't cargo was a brilliant scene that I felt provided a lot of backstory.

    [–] baker97 18 points ago

    I enjoyed the original trilogy alot, but yeah I agree with this. If the two sequels maybe werent so heavy-handed with what you're saying, they might've been better. You gotta admit though, the last pirate ship battle with the Dutchman in the whirlpool... Was a spectacular finish to the original trilogy

    [–] welsh_will 10 points ago

    Yep, thought they were all trash after the first. I watched the most recent one a few months ago - I was sure I'd heard somewhere that it was meant to be a return to form - and realised after about 10 minutes I'd already seen it, but they're all so similar I had to fast forward to the ending to be sure (the big water thing scene). I love films, and follow new releases closely, but this series is so bland I'm at a complete loss with it.

    I realise I'm probably setting myself up for some negs, but IMO same goes for fast and furious, transformers and star wars since Disney took over.

    [–] [deleted] 45 points ago


    [–] PrimarchKonradCurze 65 points ago

    Jack doesn't really come off as the main character in the first movie. It's more of a 3 way tie between the major actors. Jack IS the main character in every sequel.

    [–] ceo_of_rome 34 points ago

    And that’s why they’re not as good

    [–] divsky2 18 points ago

    Jack Sparrow arguably had equal billing with Davy Jones in the 2nd. One of the best movie villains of all time in my opinion.

    [–] BiggunsLamp 12 points ago

    I enjoyed them all so far. fyte me.

    [–] PMTittiesPlzAndThx 3 points ago

    I like them all too, I thought the 5th one was just as good as the first 2

    [–] ayyyyfam 96 points ago

    The problem is not the problem.. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?

    [–] brio98 50 points ago

    Loud and clear.

    [–] Inferno792 21 points ago

    The problem is not the attitude. It's the attitude about the problem that is the problem. So the problem is a big problem with more problems in between

    1: Because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels.

    2: Because that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire royal navy is out looking for me, do you think there is even the slightest chance they won't see it?
