Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

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

this movie (and this franchise in general) is SUCH a banger.. clever, witty, fantastical, over the top, emotional, and just plain fun. and the cinematography had no right to slap that hard. glad to say this holds up over time (i hadn't watched it in quite awhile). i literally have no idea why but i wrote a poem for this movie?? idk the words just came to me, and who am i to say no to poetry?

they say that
dead men tell no tales;
a thousand currents,
and a thousand sails
a witch of the sea
a warlock in trails
magic rips storm clouds,
electricity prevails

ocean tides
and anchor lies
red horizon,
steel sunrise
my true north,
my compass finds
it's you,
it's you,
the pelican cries

captain's wheel
it spins to shore
a million kisses
and a million more
if i'm not loving you,
what am i good for?
i'll meet you
on the waves
or at heaven's door.
