So I have to admit I'm a pirate fan. I've already seen Dead Man's Chest twice. I don't think it's a romantic thing, I think it's that whole idea of basically doing whatever you want and pretending there are no consequences.
I saw a History Channel special about actual pirates and it's way scary. What's really strange is that the best Pirate (Black Bart) was forced into service as captain against his will. So his revenge was to be really good at it.
Still I like Depp's version better. I have to say Disney's treatment has been surprisingly good. And well I have to admit, I soooo prefer fantasy to reality. So excuse me, while I go find the new Terry Pratchett or Lemony Snicket book. Meantime, enjoy one of my Stikfas figures!
