      Pirates” is simply one of those movies that will not be off the current younger generation’s top films list. For me (and many others, I suspect), it was gateway into now-legendary actor Johnny Depp’s career. The guy’s performance in this movie, while not a magnum opus, no doubt reveals that he gained unprecedented popularity and a whole new fanbase after playing the role of ever-popular Captain Jack Sparrow.

      The film follows the the kidnapping and rescue of Elizabeth


      Swann (Keira Knightley), the supposed last living member of the bloodline of a certain legendary pirate who long since left the world. Her rescuers are William Turner (Orlando Bloom) and rogue pirate Jack Sparrow (Depp). Throughout the film, their various confrontations and adventures are permeated by a light atmosphere of jest, which makes the movie utterly enjoyable to watch time and time again. I can safely say that I’ll remember Curse of the Black Pearl even ten ...

      • years from now. While the direction nor the acting is not stunning or oscar-worthy, the film was nonetheless a blockbuster. And for good reason: a gripping storyline, great cast of characters and personalities, and epic musical score lend themselves to a hit movie such as this.

        Of course, I’ve hardly touched on the plot of the film, but I won’t spoil it here. What unfolds is an epic narrative that encompasses emotions of love and hate, drenched with

        the blood of various backstabbing, and the legend of a cursed ghost ship that terrorizes the seas by night. The characters proved too lovable to be showcased only once, if I do say so myself. Director Gore Verbinski no doubt realized this, and planned a couple more entries in the series for fans to enjoy.

        Thoroughly fun to watch this movie, and I don’t expect that feeling to evaporate anytime soon (even though it often does with other movies).
