Title: Sequel comparison
Post by: Louisiana Night on December 14, 2006, 11:42:26 PM
Books, movies, games, videocards, etc. :P

To start off with, I thought it was interesting how different the two PotC movies were... but unlike many seemingly feel, I thought the second was the better of the two. It lacked what the first had in pure style(and in some places it seemed like they had cut out important details to shorten it), but the action sequences were better (best...swordfight...scene...ever XD), the story was more complex(with more plot twists), and the humour was better(IMHO). Sadly, the graphics/effects are unlikely to stand the test of time as well as the first, and it isn't nearly as fun to quote. XD
Oh, and Jason and I agree. It was Monkey Island the movie! XB

Thoughts(yes, I know I may be asking to be shot like that crazy undead monkey :P)? ;)

Note to Kelsey and Jason: Yes, I know that the credits says "Lucas Films" and not "Lucasarts" ;P

Well, I thought that the humor wasn't as good. If it were, it would be more quotable. :P I'm probably going to watch it sometime this weekend, so I'll have more thoughts then. :P

Voodoo Lady and Barbossa are definitely directly ripped from MI. :P

I'm guessing it's the open ending. People resent having to wait a year or two to find out what happens. :P It might be one of the reasons why sequels in trilogies usually aren't considered to be as good as the first movies.

Well, true, but what about comments like "It wasn't worth waiting two years in anticipation for <insert movie title here>"

The swordfighting was hilarious. XD

The main thing that annoyed me was...
When Barbossa came back!!! XP He felt cold! He was dead! :P

He says that he feels cold right after he's shot by Jack and right before he (apparently) dies.

It's all classic pirate story cliches. The Pirates screenwriters probably got the ideas from the same place that the MI peeps did. :P

And I will agree with just about everyone here, the sword fight scene RULED! ;D

Well, they were just talking about bringing Jack from the dead, weren't they? I'm just wondering why they have to go to the ends of the earth to find Jack while the Voodoo Lady revived Barbossa all by herself for all we know. Maybe cause Jack had a freaky death while Barbossa's was pretty normal?

Maybe someone kept Barbossa's beard as a souvenir? XD

Seriously though Barbossa maybe alive but it doesn't mean he has his soul and to bring Jack back with a soul this might be the only way to do it... :-\
