A Hilarious Thread That Connects These Three Characters

My sister and I have been reacquainting ourselves with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and we realized something rather hilarious. Every guy that Elizabeth Swann has ever kissed…DIES!

Jack Sparrow was the first to die after kissing Swann in an oopsy-daisy passionate smooch that turned out to be the ultimate swindle, leading to Sparrow’s abrupt departure to Davy Jones’ Locker via the gut of the Kraken.

Then Norrington, the man who wanted Elizabeth to be his wife in the first Pirates movie, ended up having to save Swann from Davy Jones’ clutches. In doing so, he gives Elizabeth a goodbye kiss and a moment later gets run through by a sword wielded by Will’s own father, which is a bit ironic. Lol.

And then last but definitely not least, there is Will who, after finally getting married to Elizabeth in the middle of a raging battle and sharing a passionate kiss in a rainstorm.

Throwback Friday: Captain Jack Sparrow Is One of My Favorite Movie Characters of All Time

Captain. Jack. Sparrow. This character that has helmed five movies which have made a culmination of $4,524,000,000 (wait a minute! Let me pause right there. This franchise has made 4 and a half billion dollars?! No wonder Disney is trying to reboot this franchise.) is a major part of the reason why I love these movies so much.

I don’t watch the Pirates of the Caribbean films often but every so often I get the urge to dabble in the world of pirates and Krakens and ancient pirate myths brought to life and it’s so much fun. Just the other night I watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and I honestly had a blast. It may not be the easiest film to follow at times but it is quite the adventure.

As I watched the film I couldn’t help but remember why I love Captain Jack Sparrow so much.

Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was one of the movies I happened to miss this summer so when it was available to watch digitally I was so excited. This was a movie I actually wanted to see so imagine how disheartened I felt when it got subpar reviews. People didn’t say it was bad but they didn’t say it was great either. So I watched it apprehensively. I figured it would be enjoyable, to a certain extent, because Disney doesn’t make absolutely terrible movies, but would it be able to stack up to the success of some its predecessors? And I’m glad to say I came from the movie with a nod and a smile on my face. It was good, it wasn’t great, but I did like certain aspects of the film. So, with that, let me start this review.

The Story

This new Pirates of the Caribbean film had one of the more compelling stories of the series. The main gist of the film was that when a Spanish captain who despised pirates with every bit of his being was defeated by a teenage Jack Sparrow he, in the event of turning into a ghost of sorts, vowed to get revenge on the rascally pirate. And so when a British ship fell into his domain he killed everyone on board except for Henry Turner (Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann’s son) and told him to relay a message to Jack Sparrow that “Death” was going to find him.

Now, this was a great portion of the story that gave plenty of implications that this would be the best Pirates of the Caribbean movie yet. Here was the thing though. This storyline was slightly lost in the midst of a whole bunch of other plotlines for the movie.
