Pirates! ARRRR

Sat Aug 5, 2006, 4:20 AM
Well, I saw the last PotC and guess what? I loved it. I really think it was very interesting, especially for all the complicated relationships between the characters. I totally fell for Davy Jones (I mean, tragic past and awesome presence, how could you not like this guy? err Squid...) and Norrington. Naturally, Jack Sparrow was perfect! His lines were just hilarious!

I don't have the courage to write a detailed review, but the only thing I didn't really like was the Flying Dutchman crew: it was a little too Roccoco-baroque-slimy-gothic for me. I thought Davy and Bootstrap really worked well, because you could see their human features. the other were too crustacean. It was a little too much. But the ship itself was great! I loved the organ scene! :D And the cannibals scene, even if it was one of the funniest of the movie, I think it could have been cut down a bit. It doesn't bring anything important to the plot...

SPOILER WARNING! Have any of you spotted the locket in Tia Dalma's shack? It's the same as Davy Jones' music box! Could she have been his lover? I heard that Tia was a reincarnation of the goddess Calypso and that Davy had fallen in love with her. That would be awesome!
And I really liked the fact that Sparrow "left a mark" on Cutler-Beckett. I wonder what happened between those two! SPOILERS END HERE

By the way, here is a little forum created only for Davy Jones, if anyone is interested! post your opinions and fanworks there!  davysbonnielass.proboards75.co…

PIRATES 2 WAS SMEGGING AWESOME. Personally, I saw it for my fourth time today, and I'm listening to the soundtrack as I speak... I'm obsessed ^__^

Well, I found out about it on the internet, then when I saw the movie a second time, I spotted it! and it is indeed exactly the same, with the crab claws around it...

I wonder how that'll come to play in the third movie; they couldn't have done it on accident or by coincidence.

Lol I recon Cutler-Beckett and Jack Sparrow had a fling that ending tragically. XD just kidding. Nicely spotted with the locket, there was a rather large mention of the music box and i think your probably right. well spotted!

gah, I shouln't get any credit for the locket, I found out about it on the internet. When I saw the movie a second time, I managed to spot it, and really compare it with Davy's one and it's the exact same one!

It is possible that Tia was his lover, there was some thing about the way she spoke of her that made you think that it was either her or she really hated Davey's girl. The reason some of Davey Jones' crew were more crustaceany than others is so you can tell how long they have been a member of the crew. It was explained in the film, the longer they stay, the less human they become.

yes, I agree. There is a rumor that says that Tia Dalma is in fact a reincarnation of a sea goddess Davy JOnes was inlove with. That would be great! ANd I'd love to see what Davy looked like before his transformation (even if I know what the actor looks like).

Cuttler-Beckett left a mark on Jack, too. Remember the "P" on his wrist in the first movie? Yeah..Jack originally worked for the East India Trading Company, under CB (Jack's his name was Jack Smith LOL), manning a trading boat called The Wicked Wench. When Jack said he wouldn't transport slaves, CB torched and sank the Wench and branded Jack a pirate. Soon after Jack went to Davy Jones and asked him to bring up his old ship. He renamed it the Black Pearl and went about on his merry pirate ways...

Obviously there's something more to Tia Dalma...she has suspicious lockets and enchanted compasses lying around, she can bring people back to life...and get their bodies in the first place? But I don't think she was Davy Jones' love...mabye a reincarnation or a friend, but not the actual thing...so yeah. POTC love!

oh thanks a lot for all the information! I knew about the "P" mark on Sparrow, but Beckett says Jack left a mark on him. I wonder what happened!
And yes, Tia Dalma is much more powerful than meets the eye! In some rumors, I read that she might be a reincarnation of a sea goddess or nymph called Calypso (that would be a nymph then) and that Davy Jones had fallen inlove with that nymph...

Davey Jones was great. The first time I saw the trailer I didn't know it was for Pirates and I thought he was Cthulu. His design was very cool. I loved the three way sword fight and the giant water wheel scene as well. Those were very unique camera angles I'd never seen before. I love monsters too so the Kraken was great. I loved how they gave it a worm like mouth instead of the typical cephalopod beak.

Oh I love fight scenes and actions scenes since I grew up watching giant monsters battle it out. I thought the camera angles were so neat though. The water wheel was still while the background spun. That was original. Hehe I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought he looked like Cthulhu.
Reply
:iconkyla79:
kyla79 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2006
hehe, yes, he has Cthulhu's looks indeed! I agree about the fight scenes, they were really well done and not at all boring! I'm not a fan of stupid long action parts in movies, but here it was nicely done!

Oh yeah! The locket! Almost forgot...but on the official Pirates site there's some weird game and it says the locket belonged to a Spanish princess or maiden or something...I forgot xP. But Tia Dalma? A maiden? Kinda unlikely :/. And was the ring Jack swiped from her house Barbossa's or something? But the CLIFFHANGER ENDING WAS AWESOME :O!!!

The game's kinda weird. You have to go to a bunch of different locations and get all of the random items, while along the way you can get wallpapers and stuff. To view the info on the different items you have to go to the items menu and click on them.

Actually, the cannibals scene was based off a one liner in the first movie; just after Lizzy fell off the ledge into the water, the camera cuts away to Jack and the two soldiers, and Jack says, "...and then they made me their Chief." I thought it was great that the writers brought in so many little details from the first movie and expanded on them, as well as bringing in details from the ride that they had left out or cut out of the first movie.

Yay I spotted that! I went to a screening where they showed both movies, and when jack says "and then they made me their chief" I was like, hey, he's talking about the cannibals! there also is a reference to Davy Jones locker twice. *does a happy dance*

you see it in tia's shack, when Jack is stealing something (a ring I think) on her desk, and you clearly see a locket that looks like Davy's music box on his organ.

I need to watch the movie again...right now!! *runs to the cinema*
(BTW...It was so cool when Elizabeth kissed Jack <333 That pairing would be so cute...yes, that's my opinion XD)
