Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

US 142m, Colour
Director: Gore Verbinski; Cast: Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Jack Davenport, Kevin R. McNally, Zoe Saldana, Jonathan Pryce

The Curse of the Black Pearl is the first of the series of entertaining comedic adventures of the Pirates of the Caribbean featuring Johnny Depp as the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow. Betrayed by his crew and left marooned on a desert island, Sparrow searches the seas for his beloved Pearl and those responsible for the mutiny. Depp’s hilarious portrayal of the quirky swashbuckling pirate is the driving force behind this film, as well as every subsequent installment (Klaus Ming October 2017).

    This one is a classic. Wish they’d have made less sequels, but it’s business.

      Seems that’s all that Hollywood can make these days. That and comic book-based films!

        Well, the thing that really bothers me is that there are some big original movies that don’t quite fall into this category (Children of Men, Blade Runner 2049…), but almost all of them fail in the box office. That makes me think that maybe it’s not Hollywood to be blamed…

    “That makes me think that maybe it’s not Hollywood to be blamed…” — I think you’re on to something there. I have wondered if audience tastes have been cultivated in recent years toward less thinking styled films.
