Fun with Franchises: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007), Part I — “Singaporean Toilet Water”

Today we continue with another franchise in our Fun with Franchises series, Pirates of the Caribbean. Today we start At World’s End.

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, 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 first part of At World’s End:

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - Title Card 1

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - Title Card 2

disney-logo

We start this one cold:

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1

With that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 2

What’s noose?

Colin:

What’s in a noose? A neck by any other rope would break just as fast.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 3

I approve of this shot anytime it’s not an American flag.

Colin:

I like when the color washes out like this. It’s blue, but it looks white or silvery. And it reminds me of the shot of the American flag at the cemetery in Saving Private Ryan. It’s an American flag, but it was a good shot. I have a love-hate relationship with flags, I guess.

Is “flag hag” a thing? Can we make it one?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 4

And even more when that happens.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 5

This could be Django and you’d never know.

Colin:

Opening on a noose. And a flag. And manacled feet. This is some shit out of Les Mis.

Start pouring, everybody.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 6

Why is the black lady the only one we can make out?

Colin:

But really, I can’t help but be taken aback how dark this is from the very beginning. It’s a Disney movie, for shit’s sake. I always think about parlay jokes and goofy faces when this franchise gets mentioned. Nope.

And why is that lady wearing clown makeup in the back?

And the guy holding his rifle like a dick down there. It’s for fighting and for fun.

(Also — “dark from the very beginning.” Ha.)

Colin:

I will never say that and not mean it at least two ways.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 7

Is that Gandalf?

Look at that fucking beard!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 8

But man… are they hanging all these people? I guess the only thing to say is… Au, schwitz, man!

That was my offensive humor for the day.

I guess I could use a shower now.

Colin:

That’s a pretty big gallows. Like a stretch gallows with a TV and a minibar.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 9

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 10

This is all some bullshit. Basically Beckett is killing bitches.

Colin:

That’s a LOT of people being executed. JEEZ.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 11

How about a game of Musical Noose?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 12

I guess she won’t make it back for the 9:30 show.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 13

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 14

They suspend their right to assembly, right to habeas corpus, legal council, right to trial by jury.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 15

But not their right to a short drop and a sudden stop.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 16

I want a lever in my house with which to do things.

Colin:

My brother used to have a fake toggle switch on the dashboard of one of his old cars (a 1988 Crown Victoria Interceptor plain clothes police car) labeled “LASER.” Which was always a great conversation starter. Just let people notice. “Defroster, AM/FM…la…ser?”

But I definitely have a short list of things that are going to go in my baller ass pad one day. I’m totally making a secret room behind a bookshelf, and it won’t be secret at all. I’ll just take people down there during parties. It’ll be the entrance to my manly study down some steps. It’ll be where I keep the good booze. Cause of course I’ll have good booze.

That’s definitely what it’s for. Booze, and bringing people. Just take them to talk. And you’ll be sitting there with snifters and a full row of bookshelves in those big, old-fashioned armchairs.

The right people never get rich.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 17

I like that their legs are shackled. Because where the fuck are they going?

And now you have to take those off.

Colin:

I like how they’re doing this. “The right to blah blah blah? Fuck you.” *DANGLY FEET*

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 18

Nice camera placement.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 19

Lotsa bitches be getting hanged.

Colin:

There’s no getting around it — this movie starts with like 30 hangings in rapid succession. Am I the only person struck by this? That’s like 28 more hangings than Capote. I bet if you were to do a study, this movie would have the highest peak level of hangings per minute.

And this is DISNEY!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 20

Look – the hangman’s salary.

Colin:

That’s…a lot of shoes. What do they do with those?

That… would actually be a great image. If they had a western or pirate cemetery that was just pairs of boots instead of gravestones.

Imagine a giant plot of land with just pairs of boots that were each person’s.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 21

Bring out your dead!

By the way – all those people were convicted of either being pirates or being associated with pirates.

It looks like they just raided Tortuga.

Colin:

There are a LOT of women here, too. How were these people rounded up? How could a mid-18th century Caribbean colony continue to function with such a blow to the population? Those were the days when there was A cooper or A blacksmith. They must be executing a bunch of useful tradesmen, and it’s not like they’ve got hundreds of everything to go around. What if you’re hanging all the brewers? You’ll probably want a drink at some point to stop seeing the faces of all those murdered people, but no drink for you cause you murdered all the brewers.

I also like how it’s anyone who has associated with a pirate. So it’s — “Oh, you know a pirate came and bought a drink at your bar when you were off? DEAD.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 22

They’ll all be suspended by the neck until dead.

It’s always until they’re dead. Why is it never “until it hurts”? Or, “Until you cum”?

Colin:

In David Carradine’s case, it was all three.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 23

For some reason, I just imagined an alternate universe, where the technological revolution happened, and we were still hanging people, and all the hangmen became out of work because of automated hanging levers.

Imagine that dude, at home, not knowing what to do, driving his family crazy, burning the pancakes, wearing that outfit all the time, drinking too much.

Things like this are why I never got into the Ivy league.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 24

Ha ha. They’re gonna hang a child.

Colin:

A KID? Oh COME ON. Really, right now? We’re going to witness the hanging of a CHILD? Is someone gonna rescue this kid, or is this movie about to cross a whole bunch of lines?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 25

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 26

“Shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 27

Scarface.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 28

And now he starts singing. As you do.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 29

And we start tracking in on him.

Sun spotlight!

This could be Les Mis and you wouldn’t know.

It’s Gavroche.

(… and, drink.)

Colin:

And he’s singing. This really is some Les Mis shit.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 30

I like how the hangman just walks past him without a look like, “Is this motherfucker singing?”

What if he just smacked him upside the head right now?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 31

A HA HA THEY FOUND HIM A BOX

Colin:

Gimli could’ve used a barrel like that at Helm’s Deep, actually.

(Not planned. Drink again.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 32

It’s also amazing how they all live basically on water and none of them are clean.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 33

Colin:

I do love that there are stone stairs going up the stone wall in the background. I love it when stone walls have stairs running parallel to the top, and with no railing. Like in Helm’s Deep. This is also why I had a huge boner for the Chand Baori location used in in The Fall and The Dark Knight Rises. Cause it’s nothing but stone walls and stone steps. How great is that place? In fact, how great was EVERY location in The Fall? But I know that Chand Baori is a place I need to visit before I die.

So… is there a rule that if you survive the hanging they have to let you go? Because there should be that rule.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 34

Oh, and he’s singing too. I guess it’s a spiritual.

Colin:

What song is this? This is extremely Les Mis now.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 35

This is a great idea for a musical number, though. And then the nooses can bounce up and down and shit and they can have this great song and dance number and then at the end they can all just be dead and hanging there.

I’m a visionary people. Pay attention with those bifocals.

Colin:

You just keep thinkin’, Mike. That’s what you’re good at.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 36

Everybody be fucking singing.

They open in Leavenworth Saturday night.

Colin:

Think there’s a chance that’s the same beard they gave to Bill Nighy for his five seconds of humanity?

You think that’s Liam Neeson behind that beard?

What if they gave Liam Neeson that beard and he had to find his family?

I’d watch the fuck out of that movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 37

She took a rally pirate course.

Colin:

Oh NO.

She’s about to have a funny strangle.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 38

Why are you backing away? You have guns!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 39

“Lord Beckett – they’ve started to sing.”

Yes, motherfucker, we know. They’re right fucking behind you.

Colin:

They’ve started to sing? Fucking really.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 40

“Finally.”

Is the implication that he was just hanging people until they sung? What the fuck? Were they aware of this? Maybe they’d have just sang if you asked them.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 41

“Never shall we die.”

Uhh… I hate to be the one to tell you the bad news…

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 42

Hangman don’t give a fuck. Hangman gotta get his boots.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 43

He died.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 44

Colin:

This coin looks vaguely Asian. And I’m a good judge of things that appear vaguely Asian. Or even more Asian than that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 45

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 46

I bet you could buy some rum with that.

Somebody pick it up.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 47

Is that supposed to be the world?

Because I hate to tell you guys…

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 48

Well that’s a nice little port.

I guess it’s a… Singaport.

Colin:

THIS IMAGE

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 49

Is this the Nung?

Colin:

This looks like Vietnam. Definitely Southeast Asia. Looks NICE.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 50

Is this? With that fucking hat? This could have been like four different movies so far and you wouldn’t know the difference.

Colin:

And this is definitely Asia. The stilts and the hat give it away. I guess it could be Singapore?

That was a British colony.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 51

I like how there’s a random goat noise over this. More random goat noises.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 52

Skyfall - 800

Skyfall - 801

Colin:

OOOOOOH. YEAHHHHH.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 53

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 54

That ain’t no shifty Chinaman, that’s Keira Knightley.

(Which should be one of the reveals in every Scooby Doo episode.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 55

Hey… hey guys… this isn’t East India.

And the Caribbean isn’t West India.

Man, you guys suck at geography.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 56

I’m also curious to know if that’s her singing or if they dubbed her over, Marni Nixon-style.

Colin:

Wait, that’s Keira singing? It’s definitely not her voice. I can guarantee that isn’t her voice.

It could be. She has sang before in movies. Have you seen The Edge of Love? (It’s a trick question. Nobody saw that movie except me and three other people.) She has a full-on song in that. And she was auditioning to play Eliza Doolittle in that My Fair Lady remake that never went anywhere. The one that was written by Emma Thompson. She was gonna do it, and Stephen Daldry was gonna direct. But then she pulled out because it never went anywhere, then Carey Mulligan took over, and now it’s still pretty much dead. I just remember hearing that maybe Hugh Laurie was gonna play Professor Higgins and practically nutting in my pants with excitement.

But yeah, Keira has sang before and has the capacity to sing. And she’s doing that John Carney movie now, where she may or may not be singing.

Also, she made Silk.

Remember Silk, Colin? With that fine-ass Japanese chick?

Colin:

God DAMN, do I remember that. That was a movie where it was setting him up to be unfaithful to Keira, and I’m thinking, “WHO THE FUCK WOULD CHEAT ON KEIRA KNIGHTLEY?” and then Sei Ashina made her appearance and I was all, “Never mind.” That was amazing. She was hot as HELL in that movie. And only 22 when they made it in 2006. Standing in that hot spring all naked and shit. Daaaaaamn I gotta watch that again soon.

I remember nothing about that movie except that hot spring scene and Keira Knightley working out her American accent.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 57

Do you guys not notice that the singing woman in the boat is not Chinese?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 58

I am amused by the point of her jaw juxtaposing the point of her hat.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 59

I like places like this, with low, wooden bridges and boats like that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 60

How much did you think that hat cost?

I bet that’s not the latest fashion in London.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 61

Fireworks.

Oh yeah. This is China.

Also, this could still be Beasts of the Southern Wild and you’d never know.

Colin:

I like the image of the child (or just a small Asian) running over the bridge in front of the fireworks.

Beasts of the Middle Kingdom.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 62

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 63

Old lady chopping the heads off of fish. This is China.

Colin:

Fish heads. Pai Mei’s getting some good din-din tonight.

Oh, this is good.

Have your drinks ready, people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 64

LOVE this dock. I love places like this, where you can just pull up in a boat and there are some steps and the back door of a house is just there.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 65

I see that storm drain.

Wormtongue taught me how to take those out.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 66

Skyfall - 809

Skyfall - 810

Right, though?

Colin:

That was so much better. I love looking at these images.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 67

Quantum of Solace - 5

I’m such a dick.

Colin:

OH FUCK YOU

Okay, I’m back. For those of you just joining us, I have this thing where, when I’ve been reminded about the opening sequence of Quantum of Solace, I have to watch it from the first image to when “Another Way to Die” comes on. It’s about 4 minutes and 12 seconds. And so Mike likes to throw me a curveball for when I’m editing, just as a time waster. It’s the perfect chase sequence. I love it. But I don’t always want to watch it while I’m in the middle of things. I wish I was joking, but I just took the time to watch it.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 68

Still singing.

Apparently no on catches that she’s speaking English.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 69

Oh, good. The Chinaman knows the words too.

Colin:

This Asian dude’s tone deaf.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 70

You just sent a white woman down a dark alley in Chinatown.

This’ll end well.

pans-labyrinth-1

Why is this so enjoyable to me?

Colin:

AHHHHH along with needing to watch that opening sequence, I also REALLY hate the Pale Man.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 71

“Dangerous song to be singing.”

They are Flaming Dragon.

Colin:

Also, this is Reggie Lee again! He was the Dutchman pirate from Dead Man’s Chest whose head was a shell that kept coming off his body. Are they just recycling Asians in different roles?

I think they just liked him and figured they’d give him another role. They shot these two back to back. So I figure either they liked him and kept him on, or they pulled a Tarantino and went, “Fuck it, someone pulled out, you do it.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 72

He’s basically like, “Don’t be singing that song if you don’t know what it means. Especially if you’re a woman. Who is alone. Look, strumpet, we’re gonna rape you. You know it, we know it, it’s gonna happen – let’s just make this quick.”

Colin:

Is this gonna be a lape?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 73

“What makes you think she’s alone?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 74

He’s here for the gangbang.

Colin:

How is it that he does this AGAIN? The last movie ended with Barbossa coming down the stairs for a perfectly timed reveal. And now we’re five minutes into this movie and it’s happening AGAIN.

At least they don’t explain why he’s back.

Most franchises would throw in a line explaining that he was brought back from the dead within the first three minutes.

Colin:

And for that matter, why aren’t they together? They came together, no doubt. So why is Barbossa coming down from these steps and Keira coming up this channel all by her lonesome?

You’re gonna let a white woman roam free around Singapore?

Also, maybe Barbossa had to set up the plepalations with his crew.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 75

“You protect her?”

Hey, buddy on the right… how about keeping your eyes on?

Colin:

I’m hoping this is indeed Singapore, cause otherwise it’d be weird for them to speak English.

Although, even then…this is the 1740s, and Singapore wasn’t opened by the East India Company til 1819. Don’t you like that I know this? The East Asian Studies major helps with useless information occasionally.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 76

“What makes you think I need protecting?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 77

“Your master’s expecting us.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 78

Why does she look so turned on?

“And an unexpected death would cast a slight pall upon our meeting.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 79

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 80

I like that look.

“Fine.” Like she was completely ready to cut this motherfucker.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 81

They’re all hiding from whitey.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 82

I like the lighting.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 83

I like how they’re just patrolling places. Why have they randomly taken over this place?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 84

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 85

This is Apocalypse Now.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 86

Holy shit, though.

Colin:

Are they wearing coconut hats? Wow.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 87

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 88

How the fuck did the midget not drown?

And what happened to Cotton’s parrot?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 89

And which one of them was smart enough to engineer those things?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 90

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 91

Can you really see anything that way?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 92

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 93

Colin:

How does this work? She’s doing the disguise thing to get around in plain sight, but what organ grinder woman is out at this time of night? Who’s around? What’s she up to? Probably no good. Isn’t there probably a curfew? I don’t get how these soldiers are running by her and thinking, “Yup, everything here is normal.” 

There are certain people who get free passes during high security, curfew societies.

I’d be one of those people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 94

Ah, you brought the voodoo lady too. Fits right in around Mainland China.

Colin:

I see dem nasty teeth. That’s Naomie Harris. Still like her better as Moneypenny.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 95

There’s the parrot. Indigenous to these parts.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 96

A HA HA HA the monkey is an organ grinder.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 97

“Have you heard anything from Will?”

“I trust Turner to acquire the charts and you to remember your place in the presence of Captain Sao Feng.”

Will went to get charts? Well there’s only one place he’s gonna get all of that — Chinagon Alley.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 98

“He’s much like myself, but absent my merciful nature and sense of fair play.”

Colin:

I love that Geoffrey Rush is back. Barbossa’s so awesome.

That’s one of my deciding factors as to why I like this movie better than Dead Man’s Chest.

Less Geoffrey Rush = More Cannibullshit

Colin:

Oh, if this guy makes Barbossa look nice, he’ll be fun, too.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 99

Of course there’s a secret knock.

I was kind of hoping it’d be the first nine notes of “I’m Turning Japanese.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 100

Look at his fucking haircut.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 101

Looks like Xiaofan turned on the red light.

Colin:

Asian bitches.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 102

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 103

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 104

Get it? He has to crawl but the midget can just crouch.

The one time.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 105

They be turning in their weapons.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 106

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 107

“You think because she is a woman we would not suspect her of treachery?”

Actually, I’d suspect her most of all.

Colin:

Is she gonna have to take off her clothes?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 108

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 109

“Well, when you put it that way…”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 110

“Remove… please.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 111

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 112

Colin:

Oh. OH.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 113

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 114

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 115

Colin:

Goddamn.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 116

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 117

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 118

Colin:

A BOMB? Hell yeah.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 119

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 120

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 121

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 122

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 123

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 124

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 125

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 126

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 127

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 128 Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 129

Colin:

Oh HELL yeah!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 130

Colin:

AND BARBOSSA WANTS A LOOK AT WHERE SHE GOT THAT HAND CANNON FROM

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 131

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 132

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 133

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 134

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 135

“Remove.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 136

“Please.”

Colin:

CORRECT SIR

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 137

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 138

Still hoping a rudder and a lot of sails pop out.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 139

Colin:

Aw yeah he want a look at this white bitch.

Atonement - 11

Colin:

Every time I see an image from that movie, I imagine Louis CK on stage dancing around, singing, “Cunt! Cunt, cunt, cunt!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 140

Of course a fearsome pirate hangs out in a bathhouse. Anywhere else would just be uncivilized.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 141

Colin:

And now we walk through this place and enjoy how weird and Asian it is.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 142

Yes… send a white woman in here.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 143

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 144

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 145

Uhh… that’s normal.

Colin:

What’s with this universe and people turning into weird gross shit? These guys never come back, nor do they serve any purpose here. You’re just supposed to see them, go, “That’s gross. There’s some other sorts of magic going on here,” and move on!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 146

Colin:

I like how the lower right side of this tattoo is a racist cartoon gagging.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 147

Of course you have two fine bitches waiting on you. Fine Asian bitches must be had two at a time.

Colin:

This guy has two Asian female attendants. I approve.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 148

I want to be introduced to people whilst in this pose.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 149

Hey kids – it’s Pai Mei.

Colin:

This was Chow Yun Fat? I didn’t know that! That’s awesome!

“Captain Barbossa.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 150

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 151

“Bow, bitch.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 152

Colin:

Finding out later that they’re both pirate lords makes this feel weird in retrospect. At the Brethren Court, everyone’s pretty shitty to everyone else. No bowing, no courtesies. I know Barbossa needs favors from Sao Feng, but you’d expect Feng to be like, “Cut to the chase, what are you here for?” I guess he just enjoys the phony lip service.

He’s in the man’s house. Gotta pay him respects when he can have you killed and never found.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 153

Chow Yun-Fat is pleased with your bowing.

The boy has a sense of propriety.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 154

“Welcome to Singapore.”

Wait… this is Singapore?

Now we can’t say “Clearly you’ve never been to Singapore” anymore.

Also – pretty sure that was all just China we saw back there.

Colin:

Oh, so it was Singapore. But the dates are off. And back in the day, it was all sorta China anyway. But Singapore’s the main port in the area. Makes sense.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 155

Sniffin’ them panties. Gotta get them before that vending machine smell runs out.

“More steam.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 156

Yeah… you get more steam.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 157

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 158

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 159

This is how my shower works, too.

Colin:

This is such an obvious Spirited Away reference. The wooden tablets and the boiler room below.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 160

Holy shit look at this fucking guy.

You could use this guy’s stomach like a fucking tauntaun.

Colin:

That’s a lotta dude.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 161

Colin:

He want dat purple stuff.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 162

He knows Barbossa is looking for some shit. A ship and a crew.

Colin:

A proposal? He doesn’t look like the marrying type. And why should he be?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 163

“Isn’t that a coincidence…”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 164

“Because you happen to have a ship and a crew you don’t need?”

I like yo sarcasm.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 165

“No… that’s not it…”

That handkerchief is tied to his pinky, by the way.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 166

It’s because a thief just tried to steal those maps.

Colin:

It’s his most revered uncle. That’s right, Jackie Chan Adventures.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 167

Way to not be suspicious.

Colin:

Someone broke into a temple and tried to steal that thing that belongs to him? I hope it’s the Green Destiny. If it isn’t the Green Destiny, I’m gonna be disappointed.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 168

“The route to the farthest gate.”

Colin:

Disappointed.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 169

And he just fucking tosses them over his shoulder.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 170

This is why you have people.

Colin:

There are, indeed, many reasons for having people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 171

He’s like, “Wouldn’t it be fucked up if you were also trying to go to the very ends of the world, the way this guy wanted to when he tried to steal my maps?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 172

“It would strain credulity at that.”

Colin:

Why is it that people in movies who obviously learned English as a second (or third, or fourth) language always have weird accents and eccentric grammar and stuff, but then they don’t bat an eye when someone uses the word ‘incredulity?’ I’ve met plenty of Americans who would have gone, “Wait, wait — incre-what-a-what?” But Chow Yun Fat’s character and his goofy accent are like, “Ah yes. Incredulity. Bet you can’t believe I know what that word means.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 173

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 174

Look at that nod. This is why you have people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 175

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 176

I also like the implication that he was being held underwater this entire time.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 177

Aww… just like when we first met him.

Colin:

I want to see every part of this shit. He’s getting water tortured and drowned and shit. By Asians. That’s the worst. That was when I was 100 percent sold on Tropic Thunder and got past it being a big, popular comedy. They were using water torture on Ben Stiller. Want me to like your movie? Include footage of Ben Stiller being tortured by Asians.

Or Elijah Wood being stabbed.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 178

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 179

“This is the thief. Is his face familiar to you?”

Colin:

There’s something very funny about this image to me. Chow Yun Fat’s making a sassy face.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 180

“No – no – what? No!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 181

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 182

“Then I guess he has no further need for it.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 183

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 184

Aww… just like you did to him in the first movie.

Colin:

The average girl (or person, for that matter) would make a sound before someone rammed a giant stake into a man’s jugular right in front of everyone. I’d make a sound. Doesn’t mean I know the guy.

I wouldn’t.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 185

That slow head turn is nice.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 186

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 187

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.

Colin:

Words like ‘hospitality’ are only ever on the table when Asians are involved.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 188

“I assure you, I had no idea…”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 189

“That he would get caught!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 190

Colin:

Rush Hour 2.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 191

I like how he’s holding her back. She wants to beat his ass.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 192

Crazy eyes.

He wants to know why they want to go to Davy Jones’ Locker.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 193

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 194

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Colin:

See, I was expecting something entirely different.

Which one of those would be more likely to be in a bathhouse?

Actually, it’s probably a tie.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 195

“The song has been sung.”

That’s a thing?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 196

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 197

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 198

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 199

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 200

“The time is upon us. We must convene the Brethren Court. As one of the nine pirate lords, you must honor the call.”

Colin:

I guess since Orlando Bloom is still winded and coughing up Singaporean toilet water, they had to farm out some of the more overt expository dialogue to Rush. I was still expecting Bloom to sputter from the corner, still in agony, “…but you’re one of the…nine pirate lords! Sworn…sworn to answer the…call…” Which would have been hilarious, cause once they get to the point where they acknowledge that he’s really nothing more than a Greek chorus that holds a sword occasionally, we can have fun.

Singaporean Toilet Water.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 201

“More steam.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 202

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 203

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 204

“More steam!”

Colin:

All of this. All of this is racist as fuck.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 205

Look at that double take. “Damnit, daddy, I already told ‘em.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 206

Yeah, that’s right, you look ashamed. You brought dishonor upon your family again.

Colin:

“Don’t MAKE me have to tell you three times.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 207

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 208

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 209

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 210

That was a midget hitting a dude over the head with a shovel and breaking out.

That’s comedy.

Colin:

A midget just hit an overweight, half-naked Asian dude over the head with a coal shovel. Yup, that checks most of the boxes.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 211

These bitches know how to stand there and wait.

“It seems the only way a pirate can turn profit anymore is by betraying other pirates.”

Colin:

Who’s betraying who? Chow Yun Fat’s gonna go to capture them and then the good guys (guess I can’t really call them the Pearl’s crew anymore, huh?) will jump them? It’s amazing how we’re REALLY down to this core group. At least in the first one there were extras. This is like…Mission Impossible.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 212

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 213

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 214

“Look – it’s Elizabeth.”

Colin:

He’s looking up her Asian clothes? Awww yeah.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 215

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 216

He can see your cunt.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 217

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 218

“What good is the Brethren Court? What can any of us do?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 219

“You can fight!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 220

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 221

“You are Sao Feng, the pirate lord of Singapore.”

Is he? I wasn’t sure.

“Would you have our era come to an end on your watch?”

I like how she’s a pirate now.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 222

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 223

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 224

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 225

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 226

Colin:

“Aw, that’s nasty, you’re nasty!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 227

“The most notorious pirates from around the world are uniting against our enemy, and yet you sit here, cowering in your bath water!”

Colin:

Nothing like a woman to shame a powerful man. That always does it. It’s always the delicate looking girl. The most blatant bit was at the end of Transformers 3, when the girlfriend (Megan Fox 2.0? Whatever her name was.) goes to shame Megatron into fighting Sentinel Prime. How does Megatron not squash her?

Her name was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Naturally the word “white” is in her name, because only a white woman would talk like that to a Transformer and expect nothing to happen to her.

Colin:

That Huntington-Whiteley Privilege. 

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 228

“Elizabeth Swann… there is more to you than meets the eyes.”

Colin:

WAIT HE JUST SAID THERE’S MORE TO HER THAN MEETS THE EYE HOLY SHIT I WROTE THE TRANSFORMERS THING BEFORE I HEARD THAT LINE

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 229

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 230

“And the eye does not go wanting.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 231

“But I cannot help but notice – you have failed to answer my question.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 232

What is it he’s seeking in the Locker?

Colin:

Look like she got some ass in this outfit.

I like that point Sao Feng does.

“You — your turn to answer me now.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 233

“Jack Sparrow.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 234

Oh, Colin’s gonna like that reaction.

Colin:

OH MY GOD. They just simultaneously giggled with the single hand and everything. Holy SHIT this is heavy-handed.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 235

And that one.

Colin:

I love this shot the most cause you see the one on his left caught it, but the one on his right is still having a giggle and hasn’t seen him making his glare of silence at her. Asia’s a tough place to live, man.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 236

“He’s one of the pirate lords.”

A HA HA the only time he speaks is when exposition is needed.

Colin:

And now Bloom finally does step in with his exposition, but it’s not funny at all. It’s serious. As always.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 237

He’s so angry he wants to spit.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 238

“The only reason I would want Jack Sparrow returned from the land of the dead is so I can send him back myself.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 239

“Jack Sparrow holds one of the nine pieces of eight. He failed to pass it along to a successor before he died. So we must go and get him back.”

Colin:

There are nine pieces of eight? I’m just gonna…let that be whatever it is. I’m sure that makes sense to someone.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 240

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 241

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 242

“So… you admit you have deceived me.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 243

“Sao Feng, I assure you our intentions are strictly honorable.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 244

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 245

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 246

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 247

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 249

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 250

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 251

Colin:

Swords though the floor? And they were ready for that shit? How about shooting the bad guys through the floorboards?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 252

This reaction.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 253

“Drop your weapons. Or I kill the man.”

Colin:

He goes for the guy whose tattoo was shown in a previous shot to be obviously fake. Of course, it might also have been a tip-off that he was the only guy left in the room who hadn’t pulled a sword out when ordered.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 254

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 255

“Kill him. He’s not our man.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 256

Colin:

Barbossa tells him to kill the dude, and Chow Yun Fat’s like, “Whaaaaaaaaaat?” Which is weird, because that’s exactly what they’d try to do if he WAS their man, too…so you’d think Chow Yun Fat would immediately call their bluff. The only reason he doesn’t is so we can have Orlando Bloom set up the most obvious ambush since Little Big Horn.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 257

“If he’s not with you – and he’s not with us – who’s he with?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 258

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 259

The East India Trading Company. Bitches!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 260

Watch this guy get WIPED OUT on this door:

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 261

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 262

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 263

That fucker goes DOWN.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 264

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 265

Colin:

Melee. Lotta brawls in these movies.

Nice diaper shot, though.

Underwears.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 266

This face.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 267

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 268

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 269

HOLY SHIT LOOK AT HOW SHE BENDS

Colin:

The Asian chicks do martial arts. Uh huh. These outfits of theirs look more like slutty Halloween costumes that any authentic Asian garb. For which I am grateful.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 270

These chicks are fucking awesome.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 271

AND THEY GOT TITTIES TO BOOT

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 272

OH HOLY MOTHER OF GOOD LOOK AT THOSE THINGS

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 273

Doesn’t it look like they’re in crosshairs in this shot?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 274

But who cares? LOOK AT THOSE FUCKING THINGS!

Colin:

Don’t gotta tell me.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 275

This guy.

Colin:

This dude, from the last movie? The one who was knifing bitches for Beckett? How is HE here?

I find it hard to believe when major characters are ever in the same place at the same time on the other side of the world in a universe where it takes months to get anywhere.

NO WHY’D YOU HAVE TO KILL THE HOT KUNG FU CHICK

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 284

This is Orlando Bloom’s fault.

He should have taken the bullet.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 285

She just got fucking Leo’d.

Colin:

You just shot a fine Asian girl in the head. Pretty sure Dante had a whole hell just for that.

North Korea?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 286

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 287

FIENDISH DOCTOR WU… YOU DONE FUCKED UP NOW!!!

(Also, titties.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 288

MIDGET LIGHTING THINGS

Colin:

More midgets doing stuff.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 289

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 290

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 291

Colin:

How do you get to a point where you’re ALL standing on the other side of a room and letting trained soldiers aim their clumsy, ranged weapons at you?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 292

Colin:

MIDGET used FISSURE! It’s super effective!

And his accuracy is way lowered, too.

Not because of Double Team. Just… cause of God.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 293

Keira’s good at the frightened o-face.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 294

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 295

I love explosion shots.

Especially when there’s a good DP behind them.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 296

Snatch and run, y’all!

(Also, is the guy back there selling peanuts?)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 297

“Outta my way, Lotus Blossom!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 298

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 299

GET SOME!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 300

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 301

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 302

I love people shooting two guns on the run.

Colin:

Gibbs could only look cooler here if he was also somehow drinking.

RUM HELMET!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 303

Oh, this’ll end well.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 304

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 305

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 306

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 307

Colin:

THE MIDGET FLEW BACKWARDS YOU GUYS

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 308

She ain’t got no clothes on under that robe.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 309

Colin:

What a bizarre bazaar this is.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 310

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 311

LET A NIGGA IN!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 312

Maybe not the best time to Sparta kick somebody.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 313

Look at all that leg.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 314

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 315

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 316

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 317

What are you, waltzing with him, Orlando? What the fuck are you doing?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 318

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 319

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 320

That was a lot of work for an armbar. And you didn’t even stab him.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 321

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 322

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 323

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 324

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 325

That’s how you get rid of a motherfucker.

Colin:

I never understand how characters manage to get under their attackers and launch them over railings and shit. But it’s awesome.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 326

That would probably blind you.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 327

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 328

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 329

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 330

That was a lot of bullets for one guy.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 331

Soon.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 332

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 333

I like the formation they have. First row makes ready, kneels, second row shoots.

Colin:

“Make ready!” What is that? Why is that part of the list of commands? I was “ready” the second motherfuckers started trying to kill me. In fact, “fire” should be the only command, so as to keep the rhythm and maintain a barrage. But “make ready?” Which one of these guys is gonna be like, “TIME OUT! My shoe’s untied,” and then expect the rest of the rank to follow his lead?

That’s why Mel Gibson won the Revolutionary War.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 334

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 335

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 336

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 337

Love me some explosion shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 338

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 339

Colin:

I assume that every music box is a bomb. Anything that has moving parts and somehow makes noises ends up being unpleasant in some sort of bursting way.

Especially cars in parking lots outside of dining halls.

Especially those.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 340

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 341

That’s a great shot. Rise up into the frame, watch as your explosive trap detonates, lower back out of frame.

Plus, she’s still right there. Which is even funnier. She’s just crouching there still.

Colin:

That wasn’t creepy. And this hat isn’t really helping. This is a battle between dudes in East India Company uniforms and EVERYONE else. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white (or Asian) — they’re gonna shoot at your big-ass dumb hat.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 342

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 343

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 344

GODDAMNIT HE JUST KILLED THE OTHER ASIAN CHICK

Colin:

You shot the OTHER Asian chick? The fuck is wrong with you?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 345

I called that shit from just the legs, too. How could you not know it was her?

Seriously, though… what a waste of titties.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 346

It’s pretty coincidental that the East India Trading Company finds him the day Will shows up in Singapore.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 347

“If you want to make a deal with Beckett, you need what I offer.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 352

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 353

Colin:

Oh, interesting. They’re cutting a deal, and this dude’s listening in. See? Even this little thing makes this movie work more than a lot of other movies. Enemies who are boring, one-dimensional and just choose to attack at predictable parts of the movie are a waste of time. This guy could probably have killed both of them, but he’s just heard something that’s making him think twice. Which tells you two things — one, that he’s not a mindless killing machine like a lot of other henchmen, and two, that he’s enough of a baller to take the risk, knowing that he’ll be able to keep tabs on them and take them out later if he has to.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 354

“You cross Barbossa, you’re willing to cross Jack Sparrow – why should I expect any better?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 355

“I need the Black Pearl to free my father.”

Oh god, this shit again? Yawn.

Colin:

He abandoned you and then fucked up by having principles on a pirate ship. Let him go.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 356

“You’re helping me to get it.”

Good thing the Orient is just littered with fireworks warehouses.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 375

“Thank you, Jack.”

He said that exactly how he said it in the first movie.

Colin:

How did he know the monkey did it?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 376

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 377

Colin:

THE MONKEY HAS A TINY HAT YOU GUYS WHAT IF THEY MADE HIM SMOKE IT’D BE PERFECT

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 378

He’s got the charts and a ship and a crew.

Colin:

This is really all he’s good for. Has Orlando Bloom quit acting yet? Nah, I’m sure he’d have told us.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 379

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 380

I like how they’re just sailing away from a port on fire.

“I cannot say. There’s an evil on these seas. That even the most staunch and bloodthirsty pirates are going to feel.”

Colin:

Is this racist? I wanna feel like this is racist.

She didn’t answer the question at all.

Colin:

Davy’s back. Oh, he’s gonna be talking to Beckett, right? Cause Beckett runs him now.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 389

Colin:

Oh, I guess it’s Beckett’s enemies. Why doesn’t he call the Kraken to do it? Is it healing? Does the Kraken get sick leave? Is there a VA Hospital for Krakens?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 390

Colin:

If the Flying Dutchman never puts in anywhere, how does it get provisions? Looks like the cannons are all pretty custom, too. And they just demolish ships and let them sink. Where are they getting cannonballs for their fucking GATTLING cannon?

Shifty-Ass A-rab.

Colin:

YES. The map with little units on it! I love this so much. I want a table like this so badly. That one in Attack of the Clones made me so fucking happy.

“Piece of eight. Nine of them, you say?”

Colin:

Yes, please explain why there are nine pieces of eight.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 397

They don’t know what that is, and they hope it’s not something that can help take them down, even with the Dutchman at the head of their armada.

Colin:

Ah, and this is where the henchman gets some of his depth removed, or at least…altered. He’s one of those guys who’s calculating and cool in the field, but then sucks up at HQ. Beckett’s leaving nothing uncovered. Which, again — strategist.

The best part about this for me is that there are like 4 guys in uniform in the looking at volumes of shit and consulting this enormous globe with brass fittings. Planning a war. I love scenes of war planning. More shit like that. And you know that was their job for this scene. Beckett and his henchman are having a conversation that 95 percent of the audience is going to zero in on.

But, “You guys are standing in the background doing war planning shit. You, open that book and pretend you’re reading logistical manifests. You two, focus on the globe. Be sure to point at the Tropic of Capricorn at least once.” This is just one of those scenes where I’m infinitely more interested in what’s happening as a throwaway in the background than I am with the primary dialogue.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 398

Oh, and Norrington is back in the fold.

Colin:

Norrington’s back, obviously. Admiral, this time. I hope he still retains a drinking problem, or harbors some guilt about what he did. If he just goes back to being Norrington from the first movie….boring. They also shouldn’t Vader it — like, he goes over to Beckett, works for him for the whole time and comes around at the end. That would suck.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 399

And he’s pretty much working for Beckett, too.

Signing execution orders.

One of them’s probably his own.

Colin:

Has Jonathan Pryce been volumizing that wig? It’s really full.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 400

“The Brethren are facing extinction. All that remains is for them to decide where they make their final stand.”

Colin:

That’s a sword case. He got his helmet sword back? Wait, so was what I mentioned in the last movie correct? That primary antagonists are gonna end up with this sword in every movie? Beckett’s waiting for him to open the case and pick up the sword, just twirling the coin and looking impatient. This is good. It’s like, “Yes, yes, it IS that necklace you’ve wanted for months. Can we skip to the part where you’re sucking my dick?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 401

Can it be here? I’d like it to be here.

Colin:

Mmm. I like cold places.

Witch’s Tit:

Do you, now?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 402

Colin:

Look at that hunk of junk.

(But shots, right? Like, yeah.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 403

Jesus christ, this looks fucking great.

This part was always the best part of Frankenstein anyhow.

That and Edgar Winter’s drum fills.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 404

Colin:

Shivering monkey. But the breath almost makes it look like he’s smoking, so I’ll allow it.

Still wearing clothes, though.

He thinks he’s people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 405

And these guys. Complaining.

Colin:

Nobody gets that covered in ice particles and sits there complaining about it.

“Why don’t that Obeah woman bring back Jack the way she did Barbossa?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 406

“Because Barbossa was only dead.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 407

“Jack Sparrow is taken – body and soul – to a place not of death, but of punishment. The worst fate a person can bring upon himself. Stretching on forever. That’s what awaits at Davy Jones’ Locker.”

Colin:

PUT SOME SLEEVES ON WOMAN

I like that the guy in the back never moves once.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 408

Colin:

This is ridiculous.

But it looks fucking amazing. Look at that fucking iceberg. That’s beautiful.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 409

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 410

Well that toe’s no good.

Colin:

Oh, COME ON! Tell me why this dude is on deck barefoot, letting his entire foot get frostbitten?

You should probably take a shift below before getting frostbite. Or, you know…shoes. Lt. Dan is losing his fucking mind right now.

Well that last sentence had some layers to it.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 411

How long is this journey taking, by the way?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 412

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 413

Sounds like a lyric.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 414

Colin:

Thanks for reading that for us, Orlando. I sometimes forget how letters work. Making sounds and all that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 415

“Ever gazed upon the green flash, Master Gibbs?”

Colin:

Like, how about some closed-toed shoes, Keira? And Gibbs, you might consider rolling down your sleeves. And drinking for warmth.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 416

“I reckon I seen my fair share. Happens on occasion, the last glimpse of sunset a green flash shoots up into the sky. Some go their whole lives without seeing it, some claim to have seen it who ain’t. Some say –”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 417

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 418

“It signals when a soul comes back to this world, from the dead.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 419

I love Gibbs. “How dare you interrupt my kung fu exposition.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 420

“Trust me, Mr. Turner, it’s not getting to the land of the dead that’s the problem – it’s getting back.”

I’ve figured out Geoffrey Rush’s trick for Barbossa. Split your sentence in two as such — and at the end of the second half, tilt your head up, make your eyes really wide and really enunciate that last word.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 421

Colin:

Still…shots.

What’s best about this is how it’s just realistic enough to work, but you also know that this is all fake. I love when you can tell something is a movie set, but it looks so good it doesn’t matter.

The fuck is this? The Fortress of Solitude?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 428

“Bloody hell, there’s nothing left.”

“Jones is a loose cannon, sir.”

I want to be known as a loose cannon.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 430

“Fetch the chest.”

“And the govnuh? He’s been asking questions about the heart.”

“Does he know?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 431

“Then perhaps his usefulness has run its course.”

Colin:

So they’re gonna kill the governor? Have fun with that.

Cutler Beckett:

I will! Thank you.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 432

He ain’t so jolly no more.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 433

So what are they gonna do? Throw him overboard?

They never actually do mention how they dispatch Pryce. They just say he “died at sea.”

I’m assuming they Fredo him.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 434

How do you get a pipe organ onto a ship?
