Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Everyone says the Academy won’t give an Oscar to a Disney film. If that’s the case, I will give Johnny Depp my own Candle Award (I just thought of that!) He is so loopy and fun in this movie – it has to be the most entertaining film of the summer. He owned this movie. Pirates had all the right ingredients – fantasy, history, reality, romance, quirk, adventure … to name a few. And if you dig a little deeper you can even hit some social justice issues, like the rape of South America’s gold that underpinned the economy of Europe for more than 300 years.

This one was worth it.

    This is one of my all-time faves!  Don't forget that Geoffrey Rush did an excellent job on his portrayal of a mutinous pirate!
