Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

The Curse of the Black Pearl

By far the best in the series. Johnny Depp (Ed Wood) is absolutely perfect for the role and does amazing things with his character. You wouldn’t think a Disney movie based on a theme park ride would spawn a Best Actor nomination, but that is what happened. It his high time Depp wins a well deserved Oscar. Maybe Michael Mann’s upcoming Public Enemies will be that good. Who knows…we’re talking pirates here not gangsters.

Everyone probably knows the story, caught stealing the Cortez’s gold, a curse was put on the Black Peal and all of its crew. Of course The Black Pearl captained by Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine). The chase is on and the damsel is in distress. To the rescue is Depp and Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings).

This movie is big summer fun and I can’t see anyone not liking this movie. Great acting by Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, fantastic special effects and nonstop action. If anyone hasn’t seen this, I highly recommend it. Break out the bucket of corn, turn up the surround system and kick back!
