pirates of the caribbean

the year: 2003

the genre: adventure

the cast: Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparrow); Keira Knightly (Elizabeth Swann); Geoffrey Rush (Captain Barbossa); Orlando Bloom (Will Turner); Jack Davenport (Commodore Norrington)

the plot: this swash-buckling tale follows the quest of Captain Jack Sparrow, a savvy pirate, and Will Turner, a resourceful blacksmith, as they search for Elizabeth Swann. Elizabeth, the daughter of the governor and the love of Will's life, has been kidnapped by the feared Captain Barbossa. Little do they know that the fierce and clever Barbossa has been cursed. He, along with his large crew, are under an ancient curse, doomed for eternity to neither live, nor die - that is, unless a blood sacrifice is made.

don't miss: the "bonus" scene after the credits - *especially* if you downed a large soda at the beginning of the movie. (insert sarcastic tone here.)

listen for: no, I don't think I'll quote anything - what's YOUR favorite line?

did you know: one of the film's last lines - "Bring me that horizon" - was conceived by Johnny Depp on the morning the scene was filmed. Also improvised by Depp were the various "eunuch" lines, and Jack Sparrow's catch phrase, "Savvy?".

extra bonus points: if you can list one of the similarities between the movie and the ride at Disneyland.

The Scene on Tortuga with all the drinking and "ladies" seemed straight from the ride.

"I'm Captain Jack Sparrow, savvy?" this is definitely the best of the trilogy.

P.S. I don't drink before movies anymore...that was just too unpleasant!
