Fun with Franchises: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007), Part II — “‘I’m Doing Reasonably Well, As Facial Hair Goes'”

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

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 second part of At World’s End:

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

We begin Part II with a captain fight.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 699

Rush gives orders.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 700

Depp shouts the same orders.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 701

“What are you doing?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 702

“What are you doing?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 703

“No, what ARE you doing?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 704

“What are YOU doing?”

Colin:

Barbossa’s inflection is off. Depp has it right. “What are YOU doing?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 705

“No, what ARE you doing?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 706

“What are you doing? The captain gives orders on this ship.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 707

“The captain of this ship is giving orders.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 708

“My ship, makes me captain.”

“They be my charts.”

“That makes you chart man.”

Colin:

Making a play for my favorite line so far. Along with “Rock.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 709

“Stow it! The both of you! That’s an order! Understand?!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 710

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 711

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 712

“Sorry. I just thought, with the captain issue in doubt, I’d throw in my name for consideration.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 713

Colin:

Hahaha he thought he was a big kid.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 714

“I’d vote for ya.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 715

“Yeah?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 716

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 717

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 718

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 719

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 720

Colin:

Penis joke.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 721

Colin:

Oh, he got a nice high school ring.

Think he ever forgets he’s mortal now? Running into cannon fire like a boss and then being like, “Oh shit, that could hurt me?” Nah, he just does it anyway, doesn’t he? 

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 722

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 723

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 724

“You left Jack to the Kraken.”

Colin:

Is this gonna be where they finally make up? I thought he’d be cool with it. All this time, he was trying to figure out why she was so emotional about Jack, and now he finds out it’s because she sent him to his death. If I were him, I’d be TOTALLY cool with that. I’d probably make me want her more.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 725

“He’s rescued now, it’s done with.”

That is true. It’s not murder if you can bring them back.

Colin:

I don’t think so. The act itself still counts. If there’s a chance he wasn’t coming back, it counts. He still had to experience being fucking eaten by the Kraken.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 726

“Will, I had no choice.”

“You chose not to tell me.”

Please kill him.

Colin:

Oh WAAAHHHHH

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 727

“It wasn’t your burden to bear.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 728

“Well I did bear it, didn’t I? I just didn’t know what it was. I thought –”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 729

“You thought I loved him.”

Yeah… this isn’t the first movie anymore. Enough with these scenes. We don’t care about you two anymore. You’re already together.

Colin:

They gotta be together and then in danger of not being. Cause that’s whats supposedly going to keep us interested. Yawn. How about you all go find the Kraken, which, according to logic, should ALSO have been sent to Davy Jones’ Locker. I bet it’d listen to you now. Although, I guess they don’t know it’s dead yet. But once they do? How would you not immediately sail back to the Locker and GET IT? I’d watch THAT.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 730

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 731

Rape.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 732

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 733

She don’t mind.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 734

”If you make your choices alone, how can I trust you?”

Uhh… aren’t you about to go try to kill Davy Jones for your father?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 735

I like these kinds of close-ups. I like studying the lighting.

It also helps that the person being lit is Keira Knightley.

Oh, she also says “you can’t.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 736

I like when ropes are bannisters.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 737

This is my “aircraft taking off at sunset.”

Colin:

Shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 738

Is that figurehead taking a selfie?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 739

Colin:

Dead things. Dead faces in the water.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 740

“Eerie. That’s downright macabery.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 741

Doo doo cloud.

Colin:

Are those all the dudes who died at sea? Or just the ones Davy Jones killed? Can he come here at will?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 742

“I wonder what would happen if you dropped a cannonball on one of them.”

This is the type of shit I’d say.

Maybe I’m the comic relief of life.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 743

Cuts.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 744

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 745

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 746

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 747

“They should be in the care of Davy Jones. That was the duty he was charged with by the goddess Calypso.”

Probably could have left it with “charged with.” We’d have gone for it.

Colin:

Oh, so he’s supposed to be the Charon of this universe?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 748

“To ferry those who die at sea to the other side.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 749

“And every ten years, him could come ashore, to be with she who love him.”

Well that’s not obvious.

“But the man has become a monster.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 750

“So… he wasn’t always…”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 751

Wow, it’s like they already did that one.

Colin:

He wasn’t always…Zoidberg?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 752

“No… him was a man.”

Not obvious at all.

Colin:

Oh, wait. She’s Calypso. That’s what this is. Who else could she be? She’s got voodoo powers, she has the same heart necklace, and she’s getting all wet thinking about the way Davy Jones used to be. It’s her. No reveal needed.

Tom Cruise/This Franchise:

What could BE more necessary?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 753

“Now there’s boat’s coming.”

You’ve been learning from Orlando, haven’t you?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 754

Colin:

People in boats? They headed out.

The figurehead is waving to them.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 755

“It’s best just let them be.”

Why? Are they gonna attack you, fish zombie style? Or are you just showing a sense of decency because it would be fucked up to taunt the dead and throw things at them?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 756

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 757

Colin:

…come play with us? For ever and ever and ever?

Look at that douchebag with the scepter.

He had it coming.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 758

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 759

Uh oh.

Colin:

Oh shit, that’s the governor. That’s FUCKED UP.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 760

“It’s my father, we’ve made it back!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 761

She’s way too excited for someone who has previously shown a whole lot of sense.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 762

Never once does she think, “Hey, why is my father sitting in a boat amidst all these other people in boats, floating atop a bunch of dead bodies moving in perfect synchronicity?”

Colin:

Sea turtles.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 763

“Elizabeth – we’re not back.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 764

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 765

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 766

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 767

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 768

“Elizabeth – are you dead?”

The Lord of the Rings The Two Towers - 591

“A just question, my liege.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 769

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 770

“I think I am.”

Dive overboard and see.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 771

“No… you can’t be.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 772

Reaction shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 773

“There was this chest, you see.”

Colin:

It’s how calm he is about the whole thing. That’s always what gets me about the recently deceased as portrayed in movies. I’d either be freaking out or masturbating or trying to rekill my dead self to try and undo it (or all three simultaneously), but so many ghosts in movies are so chill about it. Duggory and all those people.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 774

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 775

“At the time, it seemed so important.”

Welcome to everything we’ve ever done, ever.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 776

“Come aboard.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 777

“And a heart. I learned that if you stab the heart, yours must take its place.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 778

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 779

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 780

Look at her, sneaking into the frame like Prince.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 781

“And you will sail the seas for eternity. The Dutchman must have a captain.”

colin:

Barbossa touches his mustache. “I’m doing reasonably well, as facial hair goes.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 782

Colin:

“Yeah, it is pretty good, isn’t it? Jack’s got his weird, twin-pronged goatee going. I think I made the right choice with the more conventional approach. Right?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 783

Colin:

“No, definitely. Jack looks like a tool. And everyone knows I look baller.”

Seriously, people — plan your whole shots carefully because I’m looking at whatever’s in the background.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 784

“Silly thing to die for.”

Colin:

He learned some shit, they killed him. And that’s what he learned? Oh, so if Will had stabbed the heart, he’d have been the captain of the Flying Dutchman, stuck there. So he should be thanking Jack right now.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 785

“Cast a line!”

Sure… tell the midget. That’ll amount to something.

Also, she looks like she just got out of a Kurosawa movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 786

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 787

See what I mean? You have to do it yourself.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 788

“A touch of destiny.”

And that, ladies and gentleman, was today’s Dick in the Ass subtle moment. Brought to you by Astroglide.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 789

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 790

Good job. You almost hit him with the rope.

Colin:

This is like a Hitchcock double whammy. Lifeboat and Rope all in one shot. I love both of those. I think I like Rope way more than the average person who’s seen it. It’s pretty high up my Hitchcock list. You might say it’s one of my favorite Hitchcockpieces.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 791

“Take the line.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 792

“I’m so proud of you, Elizabeth.”

That line really is the universal “I’ve given up” line, isn’t it?

Colin:

Pryce isn’t taking the line? He’s just ready to go? They got Jack out, so presumably he could been taken on too.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 793

“OPTIMUS!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 794

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 795

“She must not leave the ship!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 796

I like how they’ve been humoring her this long. But now that she could leave the ship, shit just got real.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 797

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 798

“I’ll give your love to your mother, shall I?”

Colin:

Oh shit, he’s gonna say hi to Mom. Damn. This is kinda intense.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 799

Colin:

Why is he so ready to go? Has he seen where he’s going? What do they have there that makes him so set to abandon any chance of returning? Is it free HBO? I bet it’s free HBO.

Unlimited wigs.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 800

Remember when you two were on weird terms like five minutes ago.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 801

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 802

“Is there a way?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 803

“Him at peace.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 804

Those are some Chien Anadalou clouds.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 805

“No water. Why is all but the rum gone?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 806

“The rum’s gone too.”

Colin:

I was gonna slap him for being ungrateful, but apparently the rum’s gone too.

Cloudy bottle, though.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 807

How come none of you fuckers are sick from the extreme temperature changes?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 808

I like how she’s just hanging around him in the hopes that he gets the fucking hint to stop this shit he’s trying to do.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 809

“If we cannot escape these doldrums before night, I fear we will sail on trackless seas, doomed to roam the reach between worlds forever.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 810

Nice shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 811

Love this shot too. Just because we got it.

You know he poses like this on purpose because he knows it looks cool.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 812

I want things like that. Maps, or whatever.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 813

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 814

Colin:

Up is down. That helps.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 815

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 816

“Well that’s just maddeningly unhelpful. Why are these things never clear?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 817

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 818

And this is where these films officially jump the shark.

It’s one thing to lessen the Sparrow character from the first film, but to show this completely ruins it. I don’t want to know how he thinks, I just want to see him do it.

“Stab the heart.”

Colin:

Surreal Jack shit is back! Yes!

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 819

“Don’t stab the heart.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 820

“The Dutchman must have a captain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 821

“Well that’s even more than less than unhelpful.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 822

Basically they Faust argue about shit. I have stopped listening. This is not Jack Sparrow.

Colin:

“What about port?” “I prefer rum. Rum’s good.” THIS EXCHANGE.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 823

“Not sunset – sundown.”

Colin:

I’m loving him just being all Beautiful Mindy.

(I want to add as a note that the more I’ve thought about it, the less I like this and the upcoming scene with him in the brig on the Dutchman. I still love the original scene when we first get to him in the Locker, but this is much stupider than that, and can’t even be justified as being part of his punishment or damnation or whatever. So on my first watch-through, I was kinda cool with this scene. The more I think about it, the more it seems like bullshit. But I’ll get into that during Final Thoughts.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 824

And rise.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 825

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 826

“What’s that?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 827

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 828

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 829

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 830

“What is that?”

See what I mean? Wouldn’t it be better if we had no idea what he was doing until it worked?

Colin:

Yup. And that’s what convinced me on this point.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 831

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 832

I will never object to random closeups of Keira Knightley.

Ever.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 833

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 834

Looks like those balls… have found their bearings.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 835

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 836

Colin:

He’s running back and forth? What are they trying to capsize the ship?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 837

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 838

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 839

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 840

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 841

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 842

That’s hardly sanitary.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 843

”He’s rocking the ship.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 844

“We’re rocking the ship!”

Colin:

Yup, that appears to be the plan. Not sure if it’s a good plan.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 845

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 846

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 847

“Aye. He’s onto it.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 848

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 849

“We’ll tie each other to the mast, upside down, so when the boat flips, we’ll be right way up.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 850

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 851

Yes… loose the cannons. You won’t need those any time in the future.

Colin:

How are these cannons not just falling through the side of the hull?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 852

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 853

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 854

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 855

How’d you get yourselves tied up there so quickly and so successfully?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 856

Love me some upside down shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 857

And overheads.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 858

And this angle.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 859

How awesome would it be to be on a ship like this?

Not… upside down, just… old timey and wooden.

I mean, it’d be unsafe as shit, but it’d have character.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 860

This would be a fun ride.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 861

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 862

Always the Chinese people, never someone we know. It’s the Gentry rule*.

(* The Gentry Rule stems from me watching Major League as a kid. And they do that whole round of cuts, and all the guys are worried about whether or not they’re gonna make the team — meanwhile they’re our main characters. And of course they all make it, but the one person we see do get cut is this random dude named Gentry, who we’ve never seen before and will never see again. And it always stuck with me, how they just did that. Tried to build suspense about whether Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes and Tom Berenger would get cut and thought that by showing some rando get cut, it’d somehow make them more likely to be cut. And for some reason the name Gentry always stayed with me. Kind of like that random player name in The Naked Gun — “Krishone… Krishone.” When the announcer says the name twice. But yeah, that’s why I call it the Gentry rule. Always the randos and never the main characters.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 863

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 865

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 866

There goes another Gentry.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 874

Colin:

This…doesn’t work.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 875

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 876

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 877

Love this cinematography.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 883

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 884

Colin:

That’s great. They’re all just chilling out, looking around, running out of air. What if he wasn’t onto anything and he just killed them all?

What if they were bringing the Kraken out?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 885

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 895

Colin:

Cool effects, though. Some cool effects to be sure.

FYI: Both this and Transformers lost the Visual Effects Oscar to Academy Award Winner The Golden Compass.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 896

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 897

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 898

Gatsby.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 899

They said the flash of green is for when a soul comes back from the dead.

So shouldn’t it be flashing a bunch of times right now?

Can it give people seizures?

Because that would be funny.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 900

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 901

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 902

Wouldn’t all that water pressure destroy the ship? Or are we completely in the realm of the fantastical right now?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 903

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 904

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 905

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 906

Does this mean the rum is back?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 907

Also weird how there weren’t any sharks in the water in purgatory.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 908

So the monkey… still undead?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 909

Well now don’t you feel like assholes?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 910

THIS FUCKING SHOT

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 911

This one too.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 912

They’re just giving him all the badass poses.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 913

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 914

I love this scene. They all realize they’re alive and immediately start scheming against one another again.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 915

Colin:

Asian dude in a conquistador helmet.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 916

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 917

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 918

I like this. Like, “You’d pull a gun against me? Oh, you motherfucker…”

Colin:

Why’s everyone trying to kill everyone else? And aren’t their guns all waterlogged?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 919

Colin:

The monkey’s gonna shoot the parrot. Ahahaha I can’t. And it says “Parley.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 920

Nice shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 921

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 922

Of course he laughs. He’s Barbossa.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 923

“All right, then!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 932

LOVE this moment. No dialogue. Guns, laughs, guns.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 933

“The Brethren Court is a-gathering at Shipwreck Cove. And Jack, you and I are going, and there’ll be no arguing that point.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 934

“I is arguing the point. If there’s piracy gathering, I’m pointing my ship the other way.”

Which is interesting. Since it’s almost like he just said, “Yeah, they won, so I will accept that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 935

“The pirates are gathering to fight Beckett and you’re a pirate.”

Logic.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 936

“Fight or not, you’re not running, Jack.”

Isn’t it weird how she’s the one saying, “Seriously, don’t be a bitch”?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 937

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 938

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 939

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 940

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 941

“If we don’t stand together, they’ll hunt us down, one by one, until there be none left, but you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 942

“Quite like the sound of that. Captain Jack Sparrow – The Last Pirate.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 943

Good subtitle for the final film in the franchise.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 944

“Aye, and you’ll be fighting Jones alone. How does that figure into your plan?”

Colin:

Why can’t they all just work together on this shit? He should go fight with the other pirates first and THEN backstab them. Get rid of Beckett and then use your good standing with them as an advantage.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 945

“Still figuring that. But I will not be going back to the Locker, mate.”

Again, why is he telling them directly what he’s thinking. “I’m not engaging in piracy with pirates;” “I still haven’t figured out how I’m gonna deal with Jones, but I’ll figure it out.” Doesn’t he cloud all this with doublespeak until he figures it out?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 946

“Wet powder.”

Colin:

Wet powder. Called it. How didn’t they see that coming?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 954

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 955

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 956

“I was gonna fuck him up.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 957

“We can still use ‘em as clubs!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 958 Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 959

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 960

Back to the drawing board.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 961

“There’s a freshwater spring on this island. We can resupply there, and go back to shooting each other later.”

And you know this… how?

Are you Chart Man?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 962

“You lead the shore party, and I’ll stay with my ship.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 963

“I’ll not be leaving my ship in your command.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 964

“Why don’t you both go ashore, and leave the ship in my command?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 965

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 966

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 967

“Temporarily.”

Colin:

They’re both going ashore and getting water for everyone? Not the cannibal island, I hope.

Geoffrey Rush does not engage in Cannibullshit.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 968

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 969

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 970

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 971

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 972

Colin:

Penis joke. Big, black, floppy penis joke.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 974

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 975

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 976

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 977

I like how this has become a random visual motif.

Colin:

They had to repeat this joke of them getting fucked up by waves.

And once again, things that we have differing opinions about. It’s good when that happens.

I like it as a visual motif, because it’s so random, but for them as characters it’s stupid as hell.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 978

That’s basically this franchise in a nutshell at this point.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 979

Colin:

Kraken? Damn. I thought it’d be bigger.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 980

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 981

Weird how they just dumped it here. Why not let it stay in the ocean?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 982

Colin:

Japan.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 983

Why climb on top of it, again?

Also… goodbye, Beastie.

They should have weddings on top of that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 984

You thin Hagrid would’ve had a kraken?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 985

“Still thinking of running, Jack? Think you can outrun the world?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 986

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 987

“You know the problem with being the last of anything – by and by, there be none left at all.”

Like Matsumoto.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 988

“Sometimes things come back, mate. We’re living proof, you and me.”

This was going so well, until it became self-aware.

Also, this conversation works better without Depp acknowledging his plan earlier. Just have Barbossa know and wait until they can talk like friends to say it.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 989

“Aye, but that’s a gamble of long odds, ain’t it? There’s never a guarantee of coming back. Passing on, that’s dead certain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 990

“Summoning the Brethren Court then, is it?”

“It’s our only hope, lad.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 991

“That’s a sad commentary, even of itself.”

Colin:

So seeing this has made Jack come around. They’re gonna go. Interesting.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 992

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 993

What if you just saw the rest of the crew cooking up some kraken on a spit in the background?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 994

“The world used to be a bigger place.”

Colin:

They’re riding around on ships that take forever to get anywhere and complaining how small the world is. I have to fly from Tokyo to Connecticut several times a year, and I can tell you that almost 300 years later, the world can still stand to lose a few.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 995

“The world’s still the same. There’s just less in it.”

Colin:

I still wanna know how Davy Jones killed the Kraken. They should take its eye or something. Maybe it has magical properties.

It’s probably a delicacy in China.

Because you know it is.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 996

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 997

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 998

Well that water doesn’t look very fresh.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 999

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1000

Now there’s a shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1001

“Poison. Foul by the body.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1002

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1003

Colin:

That’s the stake that Chow Yun Fat was gonna kill Will with, no?

And is that the dude the East India Company planted in the bathhouse?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1004

“He was in Singapore.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1005

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1006

Nice use of silhouettes.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1007

“We got company!”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1008

NICE SHOT.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1009

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1010

Colin:

Oh, that’s why I was surprised that shifty motherfuckers could be bought. They turned on him in a second. Fuck these guys.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1011

Even the bayonet.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1012

“He’s the captain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1013

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1014

Colin:

Not good. Now you got hundreds of Asian dudes taking over your ship.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1015

Look at this fucking guy.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1016

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1017

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1018

Sao Feng.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1019

“Jack Sparrow…”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1020

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1021

“You paid me great insult once.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1022

“That doesn’t sound like me.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1023

Holy shit!

Colin:

That looked like some Five Point Palm Exploding Nose Technique. He learned that shit on Wudan Mountain.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1024

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1025

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1026

“Shall we just call it square, then?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1027

“Release her. She’s not part of the bargain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1028

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1029

“What bargain be that?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1030

“You heard Captain Turner. Release her.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1031

“Captain Turner?”

Colin:

Will’s a backstabber, which we know from when he and Chow Yun Fat talked earlier.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1032

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1033

“I need the Pearl to free my father. That’s the only reason I came on this voyage.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1034

“Why didn’t you tell me you were planning this?”

Colin:

Ahahaha I’m actually glad that Keira gets pissed about this. How dat taste, Sweetness?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1035

“It was my burden to bear.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1036

She just got slapped in the face with her own words.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1037

“He needs the Pearl. Captain Turner needs the Pearl.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1038

“And you felt guilty.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1039

“And you and your Brethren Court.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1040

“Did no one come to save me just because they missed me?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1041

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1042

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1043

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1044

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1045

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1046

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1047

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1048

“I’m standing over there with them.”

Colin:

These are the cool guys. They like me.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1049

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1050

“I‘m sorry, Jack. But there is an old friend who wants to see you first.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1051

“I’m not certain I can survive any more visits from old friends.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1052

“Here is your chance to find out.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1053

Colin:

They’re giving him up to Beckett?

I like how Beckett has deals going with all of these people at once.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1054

Nice that he can just waltz in there like, “I got this.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1055

“Curious. Your friends appear to be quite desperate, Jack.”

Colin:

That table with that globe. I need all of those things. Those things will all be in my secret room that I’ll bring people to. Holy fuck, I want that.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1056

“Perhaps they no longer believe that a gathering of squabbling pirates can defeat the Flying Dutchman.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1057

“And so despair leads to betrayal.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1058

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1059

That’s great. He doesn’t give a fuck what he’s saying. He’s gonna look around for shit to take.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1060

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1061

Colin:

Yes. Let him monologue. Snatch and run. During all of this shit that has nothing really to do with piracy, he still takes a moment to be all, “Oooh, shiny.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1062

“But you and I are no strangers to betrayal.”

Colin:

Beckett’s just talking and talking.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1063

“Are we?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1064

“It’s not here, Jack.”

Colin:

Don’t tell me he was only looking for the heart. I want him to have been genuinely interested in plunder. Otherwise they’re not really pirates. Just good guys who happen to fly the Jolly Roger.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1065

“It’s safely aboard the Dutchman, and so unavailable for use as leverage for you to satisfy your debt to the good captain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1066

“By my reckoning, that account has been settled.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1067

“By your death?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1068

“And yet here you are.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1069

“Close your eyes and pretend it’s all a bad dream. That’s how I get by.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1070

“And if Davy Jones were to learn of your survival?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1071

Shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1072

Shit, even this one.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1073

“You agreed. The Black Pearl was to be mine.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1074

“And so it was.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1075

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1076

That’s funny. We made a deal? *stomach punch*

That’s the best way to get out of any deal.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1077

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1078

“Perhaps you’ll consider an alternative arrangement. One which requires absolutely nothing from you but information.”

Colin:

Jack used to work for Beckett. He was captain of the Black Pearl when she was an EITC ship called the Wicked Wench. And then he went pirate. I’m surprised they don’t play on that at least a little bit.

They wrote that backstory after the fact. It’s like the Star Wars novels. They don’t count.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1079

This shot too.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1080

“Regarding the Brethren Court, no doubt.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1081

Colin:

Why are you giving him a thimble of booze? Might as well start drinking it out of a long pinky fingernail.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1082

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1083

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1084

“In exchange for fair compensation.”

Colin:

CO-RECT

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1085

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1086

“Square my debt with Jones.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1087

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1088

“Guarantee my freedom.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1089

“Of course. That’s just good business.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1090

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1091

“Were I in a divulgatory mood – what then might I divulge?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1092

“Everything.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1093

“Where are they meeting? Who are the pirate lords? What is the purpose of the nine pieces of eight?”

Colin:

Beckett has an appropriate interest in supernatural shit. It’s only appropriate cause this shit exists. He’s like Hitler in the Indiana Jones movies.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1094

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1095

“Beckett agreed, the Black Pearl was to be mine.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1096

“Lord Beckett’s not gonna give up the only ship as can outrun the Dutchman, is he?”

Colin:

Aha, so Chow Yun Fat sold out Orlando. Good. Got what was coming to him, the bastard.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1097

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1098

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1099

“Shame they’re not bound to honor the code of the Brethren, isn’t it? Because honor’s a hard thing to come by nowadays.”

Colin:

Everyone’s just backstabbing everyone else at such a pace it’s hard to care.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1100

“There is no honor to remaining with the losing side. Leaving it for the winning side is just good business.”

Can we talk about the words “good business” and how much I dislike them?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1101

“The losing side, you say?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1102

“They have the Dutchman. And now the Pearl. What do the Brethren have?”

Rum?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1103

“We have Calypso.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1104

“The Goddess herself bound in human form.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1105

Colin:

They start talking about Calypso and don’t immediately cut to Naomi Harris. So that’s good. But they already made it painfully obvious that it’s her a few scenes back. Keep in mind, this is the first time I’ve ever seen this movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1106

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1107

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1108

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1109

“Imagine – all the power of the seas brought to bear against our enemy.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1110

“I intend to release her, and for that I need the Brethren Court. All the court.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1111

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1112

“You can keep Barbossa, the belligerent homunculus and his friend with the wooden eye both, and Turner…especially Turner.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1113

“The rest go with me aboard the Pearl and I’ll lead you to Shipwreck Cove.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1114

“Bloody fair deal, don’t you think?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1115

“And what becomes of Miss Swann?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1116

“What interest is she to you?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1117

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1118

“Hmm.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1119

“What are you proposing, captain?”

“What be acceptin’, captain?”

“The girl.”

Colin:

Chow Yun Fat wants Elizabeth?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1120

“What?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1121

“Jack – I’ve just recalled – I’ve got this wonderful compass that points to whatever I want.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1122

“So for what do I need you?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1123

“Elizabeth is not part of any bargain.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1124

“Out of the question.”

“It was not a question.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1125

“It points to the thing you want most. And that is not the Brethren Court, is it.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1126

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1127

“Then what is, Jack?”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1128

“Me.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1129

“Dead.”

Why is that the thing Beckett wants most?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1130

“Done.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1131

“What?”

(Look at Tia Dalma. She want that purple stuff.)

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1132

“Not done.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1133

“You got us into this mess, if this is what frees us then done.”

Colin:

What’s wrong with your face?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1134

She said done. Whatchu gonna do?

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1135

“Damn.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1136

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1137

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1138

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1139

“Although… if I kill you, then I can use the compass to find Shipwreck Cove, is it, on my own.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1140

“Cut out the middle man, as it were.”

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1141

Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End - 1142

“Elizabeth – they’re pirates.”
