Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ★★★★½

I’ll always go to bat for this one, this film is fantastic.

It really does have it all. Great swashbuckling, genuinely funny jokes, Geoffrey Rush hamming it up, skeleton pirates (the only thing cooler than pirates). 

No matter how bad the series gets later, this is probably Disney’s finest live-action outing. Packed full of memorable lines, visual splendour and fun tributes to the ride.
