Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

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

Easily the best in the franchise.
This was when I actually gave a shit about what Disney put out. Unlike today unfortunately.
Johnny Depp is absolutely brilliant as Jack Sparrow, and will easily go down as one of the finest characters in film history. I also think Jack's whole persona and movement is heavily influenced by Depps previous character Raoul Duke from 'Fear and Loathing'. And It's very fun to see. Some terrific casting.
There's some absolutely cheesy line delivery and great coincidental occurrences, but my lord is this a great big budget adventure film. There's not many like this made today that isn't just a cash grab.

"You are without doubt the worst pirate I've ever heard of."
"But you have heard of me."
