Pirates of the Caribean are doing MORE films...uuurgh

 I loved the first, didn't mind the second and was totally bored with the third! What did you guys think of the films and what do you think about the rumored 7 or more films? I think that movie makers are jsut latching on to a good thing and then ruining the films in the process to get the most money. Sadly I think the films suffer a lot.

I went to see the first one and although keira knightly did the usual wooden acting (closely resembling the wooden plank on ship... only more wooden and the plank shows more character development and feeling) I loved the film. It was self contained and was a laugh from start to finish. Its one of those feel good films that you can watch over and over and I was really looking forward to the second one.

Dissappointed with the second completely. Re-used jokes and the characters I think were acting up too much to the lasy films laughs instead of developing was annoying. Those things though would have been ok if they hadn't made the film go in lots of different directions just to try and make people see the next one. You'd think that they'd get that people would go and see it if its good rather than simply as the last one didn't have any ending or propper structure at all.

I was totally let down at the end at the lack of ending and conclusions... I appreciate a good cliff hanger and the 'make your own ending' thing but it ruined the film. The 3rd one was even worse and it was more annoying than anything else. They had teh capacity to make a good trilogy if they wanted but they ruined it completely.

 Whats worse is that there are more to follow (knightly promised to not be in any more so fingers crossed the spoilt brat keeps her word on something).

 

Theres a big divide in fans of the first one I think and those who loved 2 and 3 also. Do you think that tehy sold out the film in order to ensure more films or rather that they were just making good films and keeping going with a good thing?

If they made a few more do you think they will be as good as the first few or will they lose ideasor lose the momentum or the first few? Where will they go with the story and won't the charactes get old after a while?

I think they arn't bad films really (well ok the 3rd one was not good but it was way better than some of teh other stuff comming out atm)

Re: Aaaarghhhh matey!!!

I really liked the first and agree with your take on the second. Mostly I like that it's a movie about a sexualized, drunken pirate known for theft and misconduct and it's put out by Disney. Disney! Of course you can't expect them to always make kids movies after all it's not like they're entire theme has been to be a kid friendly company. Oh wait.......

I'm going to agree. Sweeny Todd was great. It's a full blown musical and it's awesome. Very bloody but in a different way. The colors are very drab but the blood is super bright. Excellent feature film.

 I say let Johnny Depp keep making these stupid Pirate movies so he can afford to continue making the quirky Tim Burton films which I enjoy.

Yah, wouldnt want Orlando to be typecast as a self sacrificing stud muffin, Johnny Depp to be typecast  as a quirky, oddball, or Keira to be typecast as the damsel in distress who (sometimes) learns how to fend for herself. 

Certainly wouldn't want to typecast them ;)

Awwww......I loved all three "pirates" movies! And have to say I went to go see III opening weekend. I hope they do more but that is just a rumor going around so far. And p to the izzle The pirates of the carribean movie has been part of Disney since the 60's or early 70's. I mean as I recall the ride those "pirates" were drinking shooting and chasing "wenches"....lol So much for Disney's "squeeky clean" image :) Not to mention I can't imagine Disney walking away from the films since they already grossed over 2.7 billion for them.

O my, I never got into these movies. The first time I went to see it, I went with a friend and we both fell asleep. We woke up at some point where they were standed on some island; this is when we left. Then when I was visiting another friend, she owned the movie and I tried again to watch it, but fell asleep. So I finally gave up on the movie. Bye Pirates movie- I enjoy the ride so much better.

I think Tim Burton makes more than enough money to fund films with johnny depp without the pirate movies!

I do think they should think about the quality rather than the money tho... if thats possible for them. Oh and get rid of knightley. Her acting is awful and she is so annoying lol
