Thricebreaker: Pirates of the Caribbean

Good ol’ Pirates of the Caribbean. No one ever thought, prior to The Curse of the Black Pearl, that a swashbuckling high-seas adventure could make a truly great film; so many had tried and failed over the years that it just seemed ridiculous to even bother. But Disney had a pirate ride in their theme park, they had Johnny Depp, they had a crazy-ass plot about cursed Aztec gold… this was sure to be a colossal misfire.

Except it wasn’t; the original movie was a shocking success, impressing critics and audiences alike and introducing audiences to the charming rogue known as Captain Jack Sparrow. The original movie is an action-adventure classic for a lot of reasons; while the big one is Johnny Depp’s scene-stealing performance, a lot needs to be said at how effective the concept of a terrifying, haunted pirate ship full of cursed pirates is. It’s outlandish, sure, but it’s not TOO crazy, and it’s a lot easier to accept than, say, an entire ghost ship full of human-sea creature hybrids that acts as the Grim Reaper and is run by a squid-faced Davy Jones, who also happens to command a Scandinavian sea monster and has his heart locked in a box buried on land. The sequels are the outlandish ones, but whether or not they’re TOO outlandish to be good is something hotly debated by just about everyone who has seen them.

It’s widely accepted the first one is the best, but are any of the other films any good? Let’s look at the overarching plot of the series:

The series for the first three films focuses on three people: lovable rogue Jack Sparrow, dashing young man William Turner, and the lovely Elizabeth Swann, three people from totally different walks of lives who continuously get thrown into high-seas swashbuckling adventures, typically of the supernatural sort. The first three films feature cursed undead pirates, Davy Jones and The Flying Dutchman, the kraken, the underworld, a sea goddess, and all manner of fantastical elements. The fourth film just has a few major characters, but it ups the weirdness with the Fountain of Youth, mermaids, and Blackbeard himself. Through it all, Jack bumbles about and tries his hardest to survive and scam his way to victory.

“One word love: curiosity. You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse. You want to see what it’s like. One day you won’t be able to resist.” (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest)

Okay so I was just spending time on the Pirates of the Caribbean wikia because I was having some serious Will & Elizabeth feels but I found something I needed to share!

The end credits scene we see Elizabeth and her son with Will, called William waiting for his return. We all assume he get’s his one day with his family and he must return to the sea once again for another 10 years.

BUT:

LOOK HERE…I’ll give you all a closer look…

READ THIS!!!!!! The writers confirmed that  because of Elizabeth’s fidelity to will for the 10 years he spent at sea, he can live out his life with his family on land!

They got their happily ever after!
