Is it normal i’m obsessed with pirates of the caribbean?
Growing up these were my #1 favorite movies. Years later The Lord of the Rings would take that spot, but after having rewatched POTC recently I think they might be tied.
As a kid I had tons of toys for the franchise, including all the happy meal toys. I went on the official websites for the movies and learned how to talk like a Pirate. Even though my fandom died down after a while, these films had so much to offer that I still to this day find things to be interested in.
And while the films are fun, I never noticed how deep it could get at times. There’s tons of great quotes, just to name a few:
“The code is more what you would call guidelines than actual rules”
“Even a good decision made for the wrong reason can be a bad decision”
“The world’s the same, there’s just less in it.”
And of course “Why is the rum gone!”
I know these films aren’t perfect, part of the appeal for me is just how ridiculous they can get sometimes.
I’ll even go as far to say that they helped me growing up, as thoughts of Elizabeth Swann lead me to realize that I liked girls despite not liking them before.
Drink up me harteys yo ho!
