Fun with Franchises: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), Part IV — “I Love Watching People’s True Loves Explode”

Today we continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Part IV.

In case you don’t know how this works — a while back, I decided to rank my favorite Disney movies and rank my favorite James Bond movies. And the Disney ones were mostly straight synopses and not too much fun, but when I got to Bond, I enlisted the help of my friend Colin (whose blog is TokyoRemix.com. Fuck yeah, promotion!), who knows everything about the Bond franchise that I do not, for those articles, and along the way, learned how to have fun with it. And, by the end of the Bond articles, we were having so much fun that I said, “Man, we have to do this again with other stuff.” Because I spent about a straight month and a half putting together those articles. That’s how much time and effort actually goes into something like that. And not once did it feel like work. It was so much fun that I knew, as long as we were doing it for comedy purposes and able to riff off of each other — we could do pretty much any film and it would work.

And very quickly, the first ones you come up with are the major franchises, because those are not only the most fun, but also the most universally known. Everyone’s gonna understand all the jokes we make (well… most of them. Some of them might be limited to three people) about them. So that’s what we’re doing. And if you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them.

And that’s Fun with Franchises. Right now, we’re doing the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and today is the fourth part of The Curse of the Black Pearl:

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - Title Card

We begin Part IV on the open sea.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1372

Colin:

Seriously, with these shots. Damn. Looks nice as hell.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1373

“What sort of man trades a man life for a ship?”

“A pirate.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1374

“You said you gave Barbossa my name as yours. Why?”

Colin:

Dude, don’t ask questions. This chick is pretending to have your last name. Roll with that. She’s looking to make that lie a truth.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1375

She want the D.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1376

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1377

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1378

“Don’t stop.”

Colin:

Don’t stop WHAT?

Don’t stop bandaging her hand because she just had a fucking rusty knife cut into it.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1379

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1380

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1381

That was easy.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1382

Oh… right, I forgot. This is this kind of movie. We have to wait until the end.

Colin:

We like where this is going — oh, oh…oh.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1383

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1384

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1385

“It’s yours.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1386

“I thought I’d lost it the day they rescued me.”

You know what it is?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1388

And how do you not know exactly what the situation is right now?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1387

“It was a gift from my father.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1389

Realizations!

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1390

“Why did you take it?”

Colin:

Thanks for the exposition that we didn’t need. Now how about not sounding like a douchebag when you ask her why she took it.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1391

“Because I was afraid that you were a pirate.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1392

“It wasn’t your blood they needed.”

Please end the scene right here. I know it won’t. But you really should.

Colin:

Nobody wants a woman’s blood. That sure doesn’t stop them.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1393

“It was my father’s blood. My blood.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1394

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1395

Yes, thank you.

Colin:

This is another Aragorn thing. I don’t even have the same blood TYPE as my father, let alone the same blood.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1396

”KHAN!!!”

“The blood of a pirate.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1397

“I’m so sorry, please forgive me.”

*zip*

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1398

Or slam your hand down on the table. I guess that works too.

Colin:

“WAHH I’M HAVING IDENTITY ISSUES SO PUSSY ISN’T ON MY AGENDA RIGHT NOW!” I oughta smack the ever loving shit out of you.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1399

“So you expect to leave me standing on some beach with nothing but a name and your word it’s the one I need and watch you sail away on my ship.”

Colin:

Yet again, standing on a beach isn’t a problem for someone who can walk or swim indefinitely underwater.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1400

“No, I expect to leave you standing on some beach with absolutely no name at all –“

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1401

“Watching me sail away on my ship, and then I’ll shout the name back to you.”

Colin:

I love that. “Oh, you’re complaining about these terms, motherfucker? Cause they get worse.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1402

That still leaves him with the problem of him standing on a beach with his word that it’s the name he needs.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1403

“Of the two of us, I’m the one who hasn’t committed mutiny. Therefore, my word is the one we’ll be trusting.”

Colin:

He can hold that mutiny over Barbossa forever. They can be best friends and roommates in the future and it’ll still be, “Hey Jack, it’s your turn to take out the trash.” “Oh, yeah, I was thinking about that. And remember that time you stole my subordinates and my livelihood and then left me to die?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1404

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1405

“Although, I guess I should be thanking you, because, in fact, if you hadn’t betrayed me and left me to die, I would have an equal share in that curse, same as you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1406

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1407

“Funny old world, isn’t it?”

Colin:

Why do they have fresh apples all the time? They don’t eat, and they’re sailing places for days and weeks at a time.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1408

Colin:

“I oughta hit this motherfucker with a rock.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1409

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1410

But uh oh – they’re catching up.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1411

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1412

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1413

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1414

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1415

“What say we run up a flag of truce, I scurry over to the Interceptor, and I negotiate the return of your medallion, eh? What say you to that?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1416

“Now Jack, that’s exactly the attitude that lost you the Pearl. People are easy to search when they’re dead.”

Colin:

Unless the battle almost sinks the ship and the medallion gets lost in the fray. Which is entirely possible.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1417

“Lock him in the brig.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1418

There’s a shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1419

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1420

Colin:

That’s a pretty intense moment from Barbossa. He’s just staring at this apple for a few seconds. “I wanna eat you, but I can’t. You think you’re better than me? Fuck you, apple, I still have power over you. How you like salt water? There you go.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1421

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1422

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1423

“This is the fastest ship on the Caribbean.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1424

“You can tell them that after they’ve caught us.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1425

They’re gonna try to lose them on the shoals.

Colin:

It’s nice that they set up this plan to head for the shoals before shit goes awry. Twilight would just skip this altogether and make shit go wrong from the start.

That really was the worst franchise I’ve ever seen.

But you have seen it.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1426

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1427

“There’s a leak.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1428

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1429

Is that a glory hole for a ship?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1430

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1431

Colin:

Those aren’t really gonna work at their current angle.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1432

Why was Roger so jolly?

Colin:

He had nothing but funny bones.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1433

Colin:

Shit, those oars look badass. 41’s down there rowing like a motherfucker.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1434

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1435

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1436

Colin:

I want an aura of mist and dark clouds that follows me.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1437

So they’re just gonna load the guns with anything they have left.

Colin:

Seriously, they should have been dumping the cutlery and random shit before they dumped the CANNONBALLS.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1438

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1439

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1440

WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?

Colin:

That flask isn’t gonna hurt anyone. And look at McNally’s face. He’s bummed. You just took the man’s flask. That’s fucked up. He’s gonna need that.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1441

“Lower the anchor on the right side.”

“Certainly has the element of surprise.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1442

“You’re daft, lady. You both are!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1443

“Daft like Jack.”

Colin:

So she’s crazy, but the fact that she’s crazy in such a way that reminds you of another crazy person makes it okay?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1444

“Good… good.”

Colin:

Where do you buy monkey clothes? Where DID you buy monkey clothes back then?

Even more pertinent — who dressed that monkey? And how did it allow itself to be dressed? Usually, if you touch a monkey, it freaks out.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1445

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1446

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1447

Colin:

That is a gutsy maneuver. I guess that’s as close as you can get to a handbrake turn in a boat.

And of course Barbossa knows the term for it. Clubhauling. That’s a great word. I want that word to mean other shit.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1448

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1449

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1450

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1451

This is great. Just yelling at each other from the passing little portholes.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1452

You know what the problem with this is? Only one of you can be killed.

Colin:

What do they hope to accomplish in this stand? Again, the whole ‘they can’t die’ thing really ruins the action of it all.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1453

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1454

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1455

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1456

“Stop blowing holes in my ship!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1457

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1458

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1459

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1460

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1461

This shot amuses me, because I think about how they got it, which is — “All right, you two look into the camera and give mean faces, and we’ll track back.” And they literally called action, they made mean faces, and the camera pulled back for about four seconds, and they called cut.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1462

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1463

Oh, nice. Okay, I approve, then. You’re off the hook, shorty.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1464

Colin:

Correct. Booze.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1465

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1466

Colin:

Ah. And only after realizing there was no booze does he see that the cell door is now open. Cause let’s be real — it’s better to be drunk in a cell than sober outside. Depending on the circumstances. Like if the outside is a battle and the booze isn’t gin.

Is there a brand or a drink called “Gin-ny Weasley”?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1467

Tit grab.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1468

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1469

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1470

There’s a fun moment where Zoe Saldana’s like, “Well, they just want the girl, so if we give her up, they’ll leave us alone.”

Colin:

How Avatarded are you? They’re not gonna stop this whole thing if you give up Keira.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1471

Colin:

“I don’t move for shit, and that’s why I’m captain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1472

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1473

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1474

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1475

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1476

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1477

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1478

Colin:

Yeah, that’ll get everyone’s attention. During a fucking naval battle.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1479

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1480

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1481

“Thanks very much.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1482

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1483

Colin:

This is the part where for action’s sake, people need to be getting wiped out, but the pirates can’t die and the main crew on The Interceptor won’t die cause we’ve met them. Mr. Cotton and all of them, they won’t die. So who’s dying? Who’s getting thrown into the water? All the crew members we didn’t meet, I guess?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1484

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1485

”Jack!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1486

“Bloody empty.”

Colin:

The flask is empty and of everything right now, THAT’S the bad news.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1487

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1488

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1489

That would be my reaction to that as well.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1490

A ha. You got bested by a monkey.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1491

And now you’re gonna drown with that stupid goatee.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1492

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1493

“That’s not very nice.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1494

Colin:

That’s really all they can hope to do in this scenario. Kick the cursed pirates overboard.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1495

“Where’s the medallion?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1496

“Wretch!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1497

“A ha. Where is the William?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1498

Colin:

She was gonna smack him. He’s too good for that. Women are too smacky these days.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1499

He’s fine.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1500

Colin:

Now you’re gonna drown as your girl gets raped. That’s gotta be a good feeling.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1501

Colin:

squirrel monkey

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1502

“Why thank you, Jack.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1503

“You’re welcome.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1504

“Not you, we named the monkey Jack.”

Colin:

This monkey has good smile timing. Monkeys are awesome.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1505

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1506

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1507

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1508

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1509

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1510

Great way to light gunpowder.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1511

Colin:

That looks like ze quick fuse.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1512

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1513

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1514

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1515

Colin:

That shit got Michael Bay’ed.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1516

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1517

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1518

Colin:

“WILL!” This is this franchise’s “RACHEL! RACHEL!” I love watching people’s true loves explode.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1519

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1520

“Welcome back, Miss. You took advantage of our hospitality last time. It holds fair now you return the favor.”

This reminds me of that great shot in Ocean’s Eleven, where the hotel is exploding behind Don Cheadle and he’s watching it on the television.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1521

Colin:

This is bullshit. They’re not even grabbing her in the good parts.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1522

“Barbossa!”

Oh—kay.

Maybe a little explanation as to how he got out.

Colin:

Aw, the douche is back.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1523

“Will.”

FYI, I cut out at least a dozen instances so far where all they do is say or shout each other’s names.

Someone should seriously make a tally of this.

Because I’ll do it.

Colin:

This pirate next to Keira has exactly the right idea. His left eye closes halfway and he’s ready to cap this fool.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1524

“She goes free.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1525

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1526

“You’ve only got one shot. And we can’t die.”

Colin:

That’s a pretty good answer. “You ain’t shit, and we can’t die. Your turn.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1527

“Don’t do anything stupid.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1528

“You can’t.”

Colin:

Are you noticing how the smoldering remains of The Interceptor are now on the wrong side of the ship? Barbossa was standing on the side Will is on now when it blew up and he threw Keira to the guys on the other side of the ship. Now all of a sudden, the wreck is on the other side.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1529

“I can.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1530

“Like that.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1531

“Who are you?”

Colin:

“Who the fuck are you? Why should I give a shit?” A just question, my liege.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1532

“No one! Distant cousin of my aunt’s second nephew twice removed.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1533

“Lovely singing voice, though. Eunuch!”

Colin:

Eunuch! Everyone loves a eunuch joke. I wonder if kids watching this knew that he was accusing Orlando Bloom of having been castrated.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1534

“My name is Will Turner. My father was Bootstrap Bill Turner.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1535

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1536

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1537

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1538

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1539

“On my word, do as I say, or I’ll pull this trigger, and be lost to Davy Jones’ Locker.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1540

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1541

“Name your terms, Mr. Turner.”

He pretty much can ask for anything right now. How much you wanna bet he fucks it up?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1542

“Elizabeth goes free!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1543

“Yes, we know that one. Anything else?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1544

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1545

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1546

“And the crew. The crew are not to be harmed.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1547

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1548

Colin:

You know what this is. SAY SOMETHING.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1549

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1550

“Agreed.”

Best way to agree to anything, really.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1551

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1552

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1553

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1554

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1555

“Barbossa you lying bastard!”

Colin:

Keira went through this before. You’d think she’d have been like, “Make him do all this other bullshit, too!” She should have seen this coming.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1556

“Don’t dare impune me honor, boy. I agreed she’d go free, but it was you who failed to specify when or where.”

Colin:

Geoffrey Rush’s “when or whe-he-here!” is also making a run for best delivery.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1557

“Though it does seem a shame to lose something so fine, don’t it lads?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1558

“So I’ll be having that dress back before you go.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1559

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1560

“I always liked you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1561

Colin:

DMX!

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1562

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1563

Colin:

Yeah! Gilligan this ho!

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1564

Colin:

These guys do creepy way too well for a kids’ movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1565

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1566

Can we talk about how that guy’s goatee is tattooed on?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1567

“Too long!”

Colin:

Tension builds, and then the bo’sun decides that he’s had enough of her shit.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1568

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1569

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1570

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1571

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1572

“I really rather hoped we were past all this.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1573

“Jack… Jack! Did you not notice?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1574

“That be the same little island we made you governor of on our last little trip.”

“I did notice.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1575

“Perhaps you’ll be able to conjure up another miraculous escape. But I doubt it.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1576

“Last time you left me a pistol with one shot.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1577

“By the powers, you’re right. Where be Jack’s pistol?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1578

“Seeing as there’s two of us, a gentleman would give us a pair of pistols.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1579

“It’ll be one pistol, as before. And you can be the gentleman, and shoot the lady, and starve to death yourself.”

Colin:

There’s fish like crazy around here. You’re telling me you’d starve? You could spear-fish.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1580

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1581

Colin:

This is where I’d be out of a pistol. They throw it in the water, and my hands are tied? Yeah, that shit’s gone for good.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1582

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1583

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1584

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1585

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1586

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1587

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1588

“That’s the second time I’ve had to watch that man sail away on my ship.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1589

Colin:

Nice island. Maybe not to be marooned on. Gimme some Ginger and Maryann and we’ll talk.

This is doubly amusing to me.

No one else knows why, but… I do.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1590

“But you were marooned on this island before, weren’t you? So we can escape the same way you did then.”

Colin:

How does she know he was marooned here? She was in the water, swimming here by the time they revealed that.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1591

“To what point and purpose, young missy? Unless you have a rudder and a lot of sails hidden in that bodice –”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1592

“Unlikely.”

Colin:

I’d like to find out whether or not she has a rudder and a lot of sails hidden in that bodice.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1593

“Young Mr. Turner will be dead long before you can reach him.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1594

“But you’re Captain Jack Sparrow.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1595

“You vanished from under the eyes of seven agents of the East India Company.”

How do you know that?

Colin:

She has a guy.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1596

“You sacked Nassau port without even firing a shot.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1598

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1597

“Are you the pirate I’ve read about or not?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1599

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1600

“How did you escape last time?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1601

Colin:

That scab’s getting bigger.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1602

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1603

Ha ha. The Voldemort thing.

Colin:

I assume you mean when he’s talking to Neville. Cause that was great.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1604

“Last time, I was here a grand total of three days. All right?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1605

“Last time, the rum runners used this island as a cache, and came by and I was able to barter passage off.”

What I love about this moment is how you can see the water in his eyes. It’s actually painful to him to destroy the great image people have of him. This is actually a huge character moment for him, being on this island again, and it’s something the later films don’t do very well at all. It’s things like this that got him the Best Actor nomination.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1606

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1607

“From the looks of things, they’ve long since been out of business. We probably have your bloody friend Norrington to thank for that.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1608

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1609

Rum.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1610

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1611

“So that’s it, then? That’s the secret grand adventure of the infamous Jack Sparrow? You spent three days lying on a beach drinking rum?”

Colin:

Rum. That’ll mess you up.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1612

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1613

“Welcome to the Caribbean, love.”

Colin:

How obviously trailer tag can you get?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1614

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1615

Colin:

She really shouldn’t be pissed. Sometimes people get lucky. That doesn’t mean he didn’t sack Nassau without firing a shot. He still did all that other badass stuff.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1616

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1617

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1618

That’s really the only way to do this. Get drunk around a fire and sing “Yo Ho, a Pirate’s Life for Me.”

Colin:

Drunkenness.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1619

“Really bad eggs!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1620

“When I get the Pearl back, I’m gonna teach it to the whole crew.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1621

“Then you’ll positively the most fearsome pirate in the Spanish Main.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1622

“Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire world.”

Colin:

He might not end up being the most fearsome pirate in the whole ocean, cause at this point he already knows about Davy Jones.

Yeah, but he’s shithoused. He can say what he wants.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1623

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1624

“That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails – that’s what a ship needs. But what a ship is – what the Black Pearl really is –”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1625

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1626

“Is freedom.”

Great character stuff here. And they’re doing it entirely the right way.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1627

“Jack – it must be really terrible for you to be trapped on this island.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1628

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1629

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1630

One two three four FIF!

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1631

I never touched that girl.

Colin:

He sure did.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1632

“Mr. Sparrow – I’m not entirely sure that I’ve had enough rum to allow that kind of talk.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1633

“I know exactly what you mean, love.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1634

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1635

Colin:

OH HE’S A MUSTACHE TWIRLER BITCH GET OUTTA THERE

Motion to start calling picking up chicks at a bar, “Roping a couple of sea turtles.”

You know… for when you’re clubhauling.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1636

“To freedom!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1637

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1638

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1639

“To the Black Pearl.”

I like that little moment of suspicion there.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1640

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1641

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1642

Colin:

What, has she been dumping it the whole time? There’s no way she’s kept up with him.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1643

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1644

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1645

Colin:

Great image. GREAT image.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1648

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1653

“No!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1654

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1655

“No! Not good!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1656

“What are you doing? You’ve burned all the food. The shade. The rum!”

Colin:

He’s right, though. The food, the shade…these are important things. Then again, she has a point.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1657

“Yes, the rum is gone.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1658

“Why is the rum gone?!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1659

“One, because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels.”

Colin:

Stop being such a fucking Puritan.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1660

“Two – that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire Royal Navy is out looking for me. Do you really think that there is even the slightest chance that they won’t see it?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1661

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1662

“But why is the rum gone?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1663

“You give it one hour, maybe two. Keep a weather eye open and you’ll see white sails on that horizon.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1664

Colin:

I think this is my favorite image of this scene. Cause it’s a cross between utter panic and a genuine fear of what you might do to someone else. There’s so much in this pose, it’s great.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1665

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1666

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1667

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1668

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1669

That reaction is amazing.

Colin:

CO. RECT. “If I had a rock, I would bust yo head!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1670

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1671

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1672

“It must have been terrible for you, Jack! It must have been terrible! WELL IT BLOODY IS NOW!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1673

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1674

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1675

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1676

“There’ll be no living with her after this.”

Colin:

When you’re actually sort of on the right side of an argument and then out of nowhere the wrong side ends up being right — whether or not it’s a fluke, that shit hurts.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1677

She wants to go save Will. They ain’t doing shit.

Colin:

Not a fan of your doily bib.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1678

“The boy’s fate is regrettable. But then so is his decision to engage in piracy.”

Colin:

Spoken like a true politician.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1679

“To rescue me! To prevent anything from happening to me.”

You got ash on yo forehead.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1680

“If I may be so bold as to inject my professional opinions –”

I like when people start sentences with “If I may be so bold,” because they already are.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1681

He says the Pearl was messed up after the battle. It’s not likely it’ll be making good time.

“Think about it – the Black Pearl. The last real pirate threat in the Caribbean, mate. How can you pass that up, right?”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1682

“By remembering that I serve others, Mr. Sparrow. Not only myself.”

Colin:

It’s always funny when tightlaced bastards get upset when someone invades their bubble.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1683

“Commodore, I beg you. Please do this. For me. As a wedding gift.”

Colin:

She’s playing everyone in this movie. She’s a fucking con artist. And using her sexuality multiple times too. That’s fucked up.

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1684

Colin:

Where’s that guy going? Is it really necessary he go up there right now?

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1685

“A wedding. I love weddings. Drinks all around!”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1686

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1687

“I know.”

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1688

“Mr. Sparrow – you will accompany these fine men to the helm and provide us with a bearing to Isla de Muerta. You will then spend the rest of the voyage contemplating all possible meanings of the phrase ’silent as the grave.’ Do I make myself clear?”

Colin:

HAHAHAHA he thinks they’re fine men

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl - 1689

“Inescapably.”

And that is inescapably the END OF PART IV.

– – – – – – – – – –

Tomorrow is Part V, and hopefully the rum’ll come back.
