The first 3 Pirates of the Caribbean movies are better than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I'm probably gonna get slaughtered because of this but here we go: POTC is a better trilogy than LOTR. It has more enjoyable characters, it's funnier, better music, better villains, better fight scenes and a far less toxic fanbase. Also none of the characters in LOTR comes close to captain Jack Sparrow. Also I never really enjoyed medieval fantasy so that's also I reason why I think POTC is better. Bring on the hatestorm!

The original pirates of the Caribbean trilogy is really freaking good. Just rewatched all three and wanted to hear your thoughts

So I watched one each night on Disney plus and I have to say, these movies hold up extremely well. The cinematography and choreography are both excellent. The setting is really immersive and the cgi is strangly better than a lot of stuff we see today.

They were fun films I watched as a kid and honestly I didn't realize how much on screen death and violence are in these films. When someone gets shot they drop dead or if a pirate gets stabbed, they're bleeding to death. The kraken scene was brutal, the tentacles actually crushing people. In one scene we see a guy literally crushed to death by a falling cannon. It's something I didn't remember being so violent but somehow not over the top with it.

There is some plot armor but one thing I did appreciate was there was never a character getting injured and just walking it off. In some shows a character can get stabbed or shot and just walk or run it off after finishing off the villain but that never happens in this trilogy. There's no arya GOT stabbing fake outs or in star wars where a character gets shot with a blaster in the shoulder or Lightsaber stabbed and then runs off. The fighting feels actually intense.

The plot is really entertaining and I found myself picking up on a lot more as I was older. The main theme of each of the POTC is Jack seeking immortality. I didn't really understand the whole 9 pieces of 8 and it's relevance to calypso and why bringing back jack and Barbosa were actually key parts in calypsos plan but it all came together on this watch. Every single person has their own agenda and it's fun to see who's going to betray who at what time.

James norringtons redemption is low key one of the best arcs in movie history yet never talked about. He's a really tragic character that I've never seen mentioned. Elizabeth going from pawn to a player is a great arc to see. Becoming the pirate king and William as the next captain of the flying Dutchman finally finding his father and freeing him. Jack making the unselfish decision of giving up his ultimate desire of immortality for William to stay with his love. Barbosa having to man the helm of the black pearl in its final battle and his entire presence was so fun. Great three movie arcs for each of these characters.

I see these movies get a lot of flack but I think their better than almost anything put out in the last decade, besides the marvel stuff. Not counting the 2 movies after the original trilogy, I think this is maybe my top 3 movie

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End has one of the best openings to a sequel.

Or at least my favourite.

Hang all pirates...

Holy shit, they're hanging a kid.

Annnnnnd now the kid is singing

Now they're ALL singing

THEY ARE ALL FUCKING SINGING WHILE BEING GALLOWED

What? THE. FUCK! The bad guy WANTED this to happen?‘?‘¿!¿!!

Consider me buckled in and signed up for the ride 😎

Edit:

Copy/Pasting a comment from /u/slyweazal who was an extra on the film and gave some interesting BTS.

>You can see me in this scene!

>Gore Verbinski even singled me out of the hundreds of extras to be one of the pirates that gets hung...until he saw me in costume/make-up and changed his mind :(

>Holy HELL was it a cold day! Not to mention our clothing was designed for the Caribbean, making it even more challenging. Puddles were frozen and the heater in the extras tent was too weak and would occasionally spew freezing air as we were all huddled around it. Causing us to all suddenly scream and run away!

>The fort was constructed out of shipping containers like legos! They only decorated the inside of them. This was about 45 mins north of LA in early December.

>I learned about the gig from a public casting call on Craigslist for "pirate-y" people who are skinny, amputated, missing eyes, lots of facial hair, tattooed, etc.

>I took my own headshot and got really positive feedback since I was 6'4" and 135 lbs. They scheduled a follow-up costume session, where a costume designer dressed me in tattered Caribbean clothes.

>Day of the shoot, call time was 4-5am at Disney's nature ranch north of LA. It was still dark when we were shuttled onto a bus and driven to a literal tent city the size of a warehouse!

>Dressing and making-up hundreds of extras was extremely well organized, efficient, and fun :) We had a ticket that connected us with our previously selected costume. Then entered a massive tent with rows and rows of make-up artists. I got scars and dirt painted on, but the worst part was having your teeth painted black.

>After that, we were sent to a large holding tent for extras. In the middle was a massive cornucopia of catered foods like out of a fantasy movie! But no one cared yet because they were packed liked sardines around the only tiny hose pumping warm air into a tent that was 20-30 degrees F.

>Once shooting started, they'd call for groups of us...20...30...etc. to come stand in a line for the gallows. We'd sometimes walk slowly or stand in background shots. It wasn't ha

Moving to London from the Caribbean

Hey guys, I'm thinking about moving to London within the next 2-3 years. I'm about to start my final year of university and wanted to know how tough or not it might be for me to get a job. My degree is a double major in chemistry and management.

Another thing, what's the general cost of living, in terms of housing and other basic stuff like food and utilities etc?

Also, how is life in London, like is it a fast paced life or more mellow?

Finally, is it a safe city?

Any other general information (like how nightlife is and the food options available etc.) for a new comer to the city would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you.

Do you think Caribbean discipline for children (constantly hitting, beating, yelling, not listening to the child) is unnecessarily harsh?

So there's a notion that Caribbean discipline which is to beat children is the only way that a child will listen and respect their parents and not get into trouble. But now we have therapists, social workers, etc saying hitting is not an effective form of discipline. It would be interesting to know how hitting is viewed as a form of discipline in your country.
