Monkey Island[edit]

"There are also several references to Monkey Island"

Anyone know details or a link? --Air 09:32, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

thanks. There don't seem to be any inarguable links to Monkey Island (shame really) so I'm softening the statement in the article somewhat. --Air 13:30, 8 May 2005 (UTC)

The reason some elements of the movie resemble Monkey Island, is because both are based on the pirates Disney ride. Terry Rossio said he never played the game and they don't refer to it in the movie. Fredvdp 18:55, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

The Setting....[edit]

The artical states that the movie is set in the early 1700's, but Port Royal was destroyed in 1692. Did someone perhaps mistake "1700's" for "seventeenth century"? --Silver86 20:44, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

The writers said in their commentary (on the DVD) that the film was set in a floating thirty-year environment, from around 1720-50. They did not mean for it to be entirely historically accurate. But we can tell it's in the eighteenth century by looking at the costumes - the buttons on the Navy uniforms are engraved with "GR" (Georg(us?) Rex), which would put it in the time of the George Hanoverians (1714-1830). I'd put my bet on George II (1727 - 1760). --Kaellana 13:53, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

I'd say the film has to take place at least after 1740, due the the usage of Rule Britannia during Norrington's promotion. --Obsessed 01:03, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

i think it takes place in the mid-1700's cuz they talk about the new world (u.s.a.) in the 2nd--jesusfreek2 00:02, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

According to all clues, it takes place after 1740 and before 1750. We have to change that in the article. I am gonna do it right now. Pirate86 18:38, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

The filmmakers stated they took liberties with the actual timeline. Any dates require a reliable source for the film, not actual events. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 18:44, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Where in the commentary do the writers say that the movie takes place around 1720-50? If they say this, then this is officially when the movie takes place, regardless of historical inaccuracies.

Shameless plug?[edit]

"The wordplay was well suited to both Geoffrey Rush's and especially Johnny Depp's unusual style and worked well throughout the film. The official FIRST DRAFT of the script is available here, on Elliott & Rossio's Wordplay a.k.a. Wordplayer.com, one of the premier screenwriting sites on the internet."

That sounds pretty self-promoting, should it be removed? 60.234.155.202 10:29, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Fixed that, thanks! violet/riga (t) 10:59, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Possible Cleanup?[edit]

This article is starting to look messy maybe a cleanup maybe required anyone else think so? Empty2005 06:13, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

I agree, there was an older version that looked much better with higher quality content 141.149.182.35 22:47, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Aye, let's swab this page 'til there is nothing left but the most necessary, argh! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 81.228.148.172 (talk) 19:00, 8 December 2006 (UTC).

99.172.131.144 (talk) 00:15, 16 April 2008 (UTC)Why are fan sites, official and otherwise, disallowed and removed when they're added to the external links? Sometimes the fan sites have the information first (due to "unofficial" official leaks from the studio)

Removed Comments[edit]

Although early on in the picture when a young Elizabeth is singing "A Pirates life for me" was described by many viewers as "Cheesy" and "Cringe-worthy".

Who are many "viewers"? Looks like personal comment and opinion without citation.

Easter Egg[edit]

What is the Easter egg.

The Easter Egg is: [1]

The "glaring plothole" involving Bootstrap[edit]

This article says that there is a "glaring plothole", where Bootstrap should have died after being tied to the cannon and thrown into the ocean. However, I'm sure I read somewhere (I believe the back of the Bootstrap Bill action figure package) that Bootstrap did not die, and was left there for years until Davy Jones found him. Bootstrap sold his soul to Davy Jones in order to be freed, and now is a crewmember aboard the Flying Dutchman. ShadowUltra 02:02, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

There are action figures? Were can you get them? Jack Sparra 11:26, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

--Thanks for this, without this tidbit (or an action figure) one is left with the unpleasant image of Bootstrap, undead, tied to a cannon at the bottom of the ocean for nine years and then drowning when the curse is lifted.

The article says the pirates needed blood from all of the crew to lift the curse. That makes sense, but where did they say that? As I recall, in the movie they only referred to needing Bootstraps blood, and said nothing about thier own. Jack Sparra 11:32, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Okay, just to explian it cause you seem a little confused: Everyone who took a piece of Aztec Gold OUT OF THE CHEST will be cursed until all of the pieces of gold have been returned and everyone who took a pice of gold OUT OF THE CHEST has payed back their blood. all of barbossa's crew have already repayed their blood except for Bootstrap who sent off a piece of the treasure to Will because he said Barbossa's crew should remain cursed.--JG ROX 04:41, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

-- Yuliana Sadeli: but i found a little hole in the story. if ALL the crew members have turned undead, how can they spill their blood to lift the curse? undeads don't bleed. having Will pay for his father's blood makes sense because he is still mortal, but Jack and the rest of the crew?? what blood?

They may be undead, and unable to feel or taste, but they DO bleed. This is notable from when Elizabeth stabs Barabossa in his cabin, when Jack cuts his own hand and during the navy-skeletal fights. In all cases are the stabbing implements covered in blood. -Mr.Bob

Point of interest: in the first movie, when Barbossa has Elizabeth in the cave, he specifically states that every single person (minus Bootstrap, of course) had already given their blood to lift the curse. EVula 02:05, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Even if the undead can bleed, then it's still a plot hole because the undead don't need their own blood to survive so it has no real value as a sacrifice. Then again, the whole idea of the curse is stupid. Barbossa's crew had problems only because they sold all the gold pieces before they realized they were cursed. In theory, someone could deliberately take gold from the chest to become invincible and then simply return the piece and give a few drops of blood when they've done what they wanted to do.

Which is exactly what Captain Jack did because he knew he'd have to face Barbossa in the future, and being mortal he wouldn't be able to win against an immortal. But he had worked out with Will a signal to put the final pieces of gold back in to the chest, making them all mortal again. Barbossa wouldn't expect this, so Jack could take advantage of the surprise to make his killing strike. Now, given what we know about Jack, he probably didn't do these things to save the good guys from the bad guys, but to make contigencies so that he could save his own skin when he needed to do so. The problems with the curse seem to be the long-term effects, and Jack didn't expect to take long to take care of his current problems. But when facing the noose, he was probably more concerned about the long-term effects of not being cursed. Val42 03:11, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

If everybody needs to spill their own blood after stealing a piece of gold, when does Sparrow spill his? Clearly he stole a goldcoin in the end of the movie? 62.20.158.66 23:16, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Just before Jack tosses the coin to Will, he runs his blade across the palm of his hand (there's a little scraping sound effect to go with this). He's holding the coin at the time, so his blood is smeared on it when it's dropped into the chest. PNW Raven 20:52, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
But in the second movie, Jack the monkey is an undead monkey and he gets shot a lot of times and he doesn't bleed a drop. Mr. Gibbs himself said after Jack shot the monkey, "You know that won't do no good!" and Jack says "It does me!" Answer that goof!
Well, if we are looking for consistency in the (Pirates of the Carribean) movies, then blades will draw blood from the undead pirates, except under moonlight. When Elizabeth stabbed Barbossa on the Black Pearl, there was blood on the knife. But bullets apparently don't draw blood. When Jack Sparrow shot Barbossa, he didn't bleed until the curse was lifted. Apparently, "wounds" to the undead will "heal" over time, but there wasn't enough time for the hole from the bullet to "heal" before Barbossa became mortal and died from the wound that he'd received while he was still undead. The other three pirates in the cave probably died because they were blown to bits and weren't able to get themselves together before the curse was lifted. But the pirate crew on the ship were in the moonlight so they weren't being wounded until the curse was lifted, then they gave up. Now the pirate that had his hand hammered off by the govenor would probably die soon unless someone applied a tourniquet. Val42 06:02, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
After thinking this over a little, I'm modifying my statement a little: Bullets would carry with them blood from the undead, though we have not seen this in the context of the movie. So, if you went and found the bullet, you'd find blood on it. But they've still been consistent in that the hole created by the bullet doesn't bleed. But isn't Jack the only one of the undead that we saw put blood on one of the coins? Val42 21:04, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Monkeys[edit]

speaking of monkeys...........what kind of monkey IS Jack the Monkey????? Aelita the Angel 5:09 pm , June20, 2006

Jack is a Capuchin Monkey
an undead one — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.183.113.3 (talk) 22:22, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Movie 3 Name: At World's End (USA Today Source)[edit]

Here's the source for the name of the third movie...[2] Batman2005 18:46, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Trivia section[edit]

I've removed this beast in its entirety, for now; as time permits, I may assist in turning this into prose. If this ever is to be a featured article—or even a good article, for that matter—anything suggesting triviality will need to be removed anyway. Significant, relevant details should be in prose, not bullet points. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 01:09, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Parley[edit]

'Parley' is clearly from French 'Parlez' (to talk). Jack says so.

Pintel: Pintel: Parley? Damn to the depths whatever man what thought of "Parley".

Jack Sparrow: That would be the French.

Not sure why the article claims middle English (despite the Websters reference).

144.134.89.223 10:05, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

The French verb is 'parler', not 'parlez' ('parlez' is a conjugated form). Fredvdp 19:03, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Per Meriam Webster - "Etymology: Middle English parlai speech, probably from Middle French parlee, from feminine of parlé, past participle of parler to speak, from Medieval Latin parabolare, from Late Latin parabola speech, parable" - Beardo 15:28, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

A question about part of the movie[edit]

In the movie, it is originally stated that after having been marooned by Barbossa, Jack Sparrow made a rope out of human hair and used it to tie two sea turtles together and escape using them as a raft. Later though, something is mentioned about smugglers having been on the island and Jack having only spent three days there drinking rum. Could someone please clarify what happened during his stay on the island and how he escaped from it?--Conrad Devonshire Talk 06:05, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Not really sure what the confusion is. The part about roping together sea turtles is pretty obviously bullshit, said only to further the legacy of Jack Sparrow. He was picked up after a couple of days. Not nearly as exciting, which is why he conjured up the turtle story. EVula 06:34, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

He lied- he's a Pirate!!!--Saxophobia 22:37, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

  • The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow article states you can escape from the island using sea turtles in the game. Now, since it's obviously a lie, why is this in the game? Or are the levels themselves actually part of Jack's "legend", and aren't actually true depictions of his exploits? - 81.151.186.81 12:37, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

In the Game, which i've beaten... he tells fake Stories. (Spoilers Following.) He tells them to stall time and he and Will are eventually rescued from being hanged by Elizabeth. Obi-WanKenobi-2005 26, December 2006

It was Gibbs who made up the BS story of Jack's escape. Jack seems a bit amused when he overhears Gibbs telling it to Will.Huskydawg 18:54, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise proposal[edit]

I was wondering whether of not an article on the film series/theme ride would be in order? --SGCommand (talkcontribs) 18:27, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Cast[edit]

IMDB lists Mercer (David Schofield; Cutler Beckett's aide) and Wyvern (John Boswall; crewer stuck to the wall on the Flying Dutchman) as having roles in this film, though I was under the impression both were introduced in DMC? - 213.120.158.227 18:42, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

IMDb does very little verification of its users' submissions; it is not a reliable source. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 19:17, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Ship naming conventions[edit]

After asking about Wiki standards/preferences for displaying ship names, I've gone through this article and made sure all ship names are italicized (not including the prefix "HMS" for Royal Navy ships). Also, at one point, I replaced a phrase to the effect of "The Royal Navy ship Dauntless" to "HMS Dauntless" for the sake of sentence flow. I forgot to log on before I did this, but the edits should be easy enough to find (being made right before the timestamp on my signature here).--Raguleader 05:05, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Caribbean[edit]

How do you say 'caribbean'? like, care-i-be-an or cuh-rib-ian?

According to Dictionary.com, both seem to be correct.--Raguleader 06:05, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Same with Merriam-Webster, which lists kair-ih-BEE-un first and kuh-RIB-bee-un second. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 12:57, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
  • THe locals prefer the term Kaaribean I'm told. 216.174.135.175 18:11, 6 February 2007 (UTC)jamhaw
  • Both are correct, but if you want to pronounce it the way you spell it, you should place the stress on the 'ri'. Fredvdp 19:06, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

just fixed the DCD subsection[edit]

chnaged theater to theatrical and changed another word to make the scentemce flow

About 'parlé'[edit]

There's alao another point about the phrase parlé, it comes from the French 'to speak' which is also mentioned in an improvisation by Johnny Depp, seen on the DVD

Sam 20:16, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Nice point, but Parley is an actual term, or so they say. BlackPearl14 00:02, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

3 October 2006 semi-protection[edit]

The editor at 89.172.x.x continues to change the dates during which Pearl is set, while refusing discussion about those changes and/or a reliable source therefor. Per WP:V, I have protected the page against new editors. If this editor wishes to discuss the changes and why they should remain in the article, please do so. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 18:05, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

"In 1687. Jamaica (Port Royal) passed anty-piracy laws." Therefore, POTC:TCOTBP is an action-adventure/comedy film set in the Caribbean AFTER that year. --89.172.x.x

First, you don't include the source for that statement. Second, films take liberties with actual facts. I believe someone mentioned in the DVD (commentary?) that the film is not precise to history. "The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth." RadioKirk (u|t|c) 00:20, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, my english language is little bad. First, my source for that statemant (year 1687.) is wikipedia. Second, if you dont now, Fore Topmast Staysail and Flying Jib (triangular sails between Fore Mast and Bowsprit) are started to use in 18. century. Third, Mizzen mast (on stern) on HMS Dauntless and HMS Interceptor have sail called spanker (not latin [triangular] sail). The spanker also started to use in 18. century. Fourth, on DVD (commentary) Keira Knightley said about her character (Elizabeth Swann) "She is a modern girl traped in 18. century". --89.172.x.x

First, please note per WP:V that Wikipedia cannot be used as a source for itself; second, you continue to use a real-life timeline for a motion picture that its makers have said took liberties with the actual timeline. Until I find something definitive, I am about to make a compromise edit. Please do not revert it. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 12:55, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

OK, but you always forget to put "." after 1660 --89.172.x.x

Because it's incorrect. I'm not sure what country you're from but, in the US (where the film was produced), we do not put periods after individual dates. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 13:13, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

I am from Croatia. I have heard a rumors that Blackbeard will apear in Pirates of the Caribbean:At Worlds End. --89.172.x.x

Welcome to Wikipedia. You can, if you wish, sign your posts using four tildes (~~~~), which will show the IP you're using at that moment, together with the date and time you made the post. That information is also in the edit history, but it helps editors keep track more quickly of who said what, and when. RadioKirk (u|t|c) 14:49, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

OK! --89.172.234.25 09:06, 6 October 2006 (UTC)89.172.x.x

Should a "Running gags" section get added into the main article?[edit]

You know, like the dog that everybody wants to get but noone can catch, the rum that always goes bye-bye, Jack's "This is the day that you-" phrace that get's interrupted all the time or the obvious bad quality of the candle-holders? ... Any votes?

I like this Idea. Obi-WanKenobi-2005 26, December 2006

iTunes[edit]

Is it worth mentioning the success he film has had on iTunes? It stayed at number one for quite a few weeks and has been at number two since but I'm not sure how long it spent on each and I wouldn't know where to find the info.

Photos[edit]

Aren't there too many photos for this article? There's at least three head shots of Jack Sparrow. Why? Huskydawg 13:22, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

DVD Section[edit]

Shouldnt it be mentioned in the DVD section that it was being given out for free in one of the newspapers in the UK Don.-.J 19:58, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

At worlds End?[edit]

Should the third movie, titled "At Worlds End" be listed in this article? I at least think it should be mentioned... Im not going to get into it myself but i think someone could write something saying the release date, plot details, etc...

The problem with that is that this is the Curse of the Black Pearl entry, and not the At World's End entry. I do see that you want it to be, at the least, mentioned, but I do feel that this is, as I've said, the Curse of the Black Pearl entry, and not somewhere to write the Release Date, Plot Details, etc. Thanks for the idea, though. BlackPearl14 00:18, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Info Box[edit]

There should be a "Pirates of the Caribbean" info box to be used on all POTC related articles Mhrmaw 12:21, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

The Curse[edit]

If Barbossa and all of the other crewmen while being cursed could not feel anything, then how did Ragetti feel the heat from the burning coals? He was clearly burned. Does the curse have an exeption to the incapability to feel rule for feeling of pain and that the cursed is only deprived of pleasurable feelings? Emperor001 22:21, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

  • This is not a message board. But to answer your question, it was probably a reflex as he only reacted for a short moment. Fredvdp 19:11, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Zimmer[edit]

Can someone please cite a checkable reference for Hans Zimmer as a musician for this film. Seems dubious to me. ॐ Metta Bubble puff 02:46, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

What's more verifiable than the director's commentary? Alientraveller 08:34, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. That's actually not so good. What's does the director say exactly? ॐ Metta Bubble puff 23:51, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Just to clarify. I found sources for this, but I'm still concerned about WP:WEIGHT. The way our article reads to me, Zimmer and Badelt have equal composer billing. I imagine that's not what is intended. The Badelt article for instance, writes Klaus Badelt (with Hans Zimmer), which is better. The interviews as I understand them say Zimmer was the music producer, not the composer. ॐ Metta Bubble puff 03:00, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Gore Verbinski said on the audio commentary that there were many composers, led by Badelt and Zimmer. The way I see it, Badelt did most of the work. Fredvdp 19:12, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Is there a simple way to change the listing here that makes it clearer? I can't think of one. Perhaps Klaus Badelt (with Hans Zimmer), like the other article? ॐ Metta Bubble puff 23:13, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Per Template:Infobox film the composer(s) of original music is to be listed. On this film, Hans Zimmer is credited as a music producer. - Gothicfilm (talk) 02:30, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Successful good article nomination[edit]

I am glad to report that this article nomination for good article status has been promoted. This is how the article, as of October 31, 2007, compares against the six good article criteria:

1. Well written?: I did notice some minor syntax issues in the lead and elsewhere, best bet is to get this to a Peer Review where they can look at that minor stuff with a magnifying glass, and get a good copyeditor to give the article a once over. For example, the first sentence in the plot has too many commas, and is way too long. This is not enough in my estimation to fail the GA, but please do fix these minor syntax issues.
2. Factually accurate?: Good use of citing templates and good sources throughout.
3. Broad in coverage?: Thorough, covers many aspects of production, development, plot, reception, etc. However, please expand on the lead a teensy bit more, perhaps 3-4 more sentences - for an article this long the lead could afford to be a tad bigger.
4. Neutral point of view?: Neutrally worded language throughout, good job.
5. Article stability? No skirmishes on talk page, however a good deal of anon disruption, just keep an eye on this going forward please.
6. Images?: 4 fair use images, each with good fair use rationales. However, the resolution on the image with caption: "Jack and Will prepare to commandeer the Interceptor." is just way too high. Since you gave such detailed fair use rationales on the other lower resolution images, I am leaving it up to you to upload a lower version resolution image for that particular picture.

If you feel that this review is in error, feel free to take it to Good article reassessment. Thank you to all of the editors who worked hard to bring it to this status, and congratulations. —

As Edit Centric, Alientraveller and myself have said on the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End discussion page, there are a lot of random IP's and Users writing "mishmash and nonsense" on these pages. Yes, we understand that new users and big fans are enthusiastic to edit, but please, check with us here if you want to edit something. We think of edits such as changing the stars from "Keira Knightley" to "Hilary Duff" as vandalism, though you may not have meant it that way. Please, please keep your edits to a minimum.

NEW USERS: please use a sandbox to test your article writing and editing skills. It isn't necessary for you to test your skills here. Please also refrain from creating accounts just to edit these pages to your preferences. We understand that there are "Sparrabeth" shippers out there, and other sort of AU changers, but Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a forum or RP. Thank you.

Significant[edit]

The two British Ragetti and Pintal soilder equivalents, that are in quite a few scenes, and have quite a few lines, should probably be in the cast. They appear throughout the film, effect the plot, and actually have a fair bit of screen time. I really think they should both be added to do article.

Penis?[edit]

I saw a picture of PENIS on the main page. How is it related to the article??----EkmanLi (talk) 07:57, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Only two men sailing the INTERCEPTOR[edit]

After the soldiers of the INTERCEPTOR entered the DAUNTLESS, then Sparrow and Will swung to the INTERCEPTOR, starting and sailing this big ship without any other help. I think two men alone could not do this without a crew. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.240.76.187 (talk) 14:43, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Fantasy "COMEDY" swashbuckler?![edit]

How come this film and it's first two sequels are listed as comedies in the lead? Is there any reference/source for that? And no, I do not believe when it has been nominated for "Best Musical/Comedy...." awards counts, as awards like that have had a lot of controversy in past as films can be funny but not directly a comedy.

Any source or reference for this inclusion in the lead? If not, I will remove them in a few days if no responses or defence. 82.44.112.108 (talk) 08:07, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

I've removed mention of 'comedy' as over a week has passed and no replies. If you want to add it back in, say why and with valid sources. 82.44.112.108 (talk) 08:18, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
