Sequel comparison
« 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

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>"

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
