“Dyin is the day worth living for”
Honestly an amazing movie. Hadn’t seen it in years, probably since middle school. It was my favorite trilogy growing up and I decided to check in on it. I expected it to be dated and cheesy but it’s just as good, if not better than I remember 

The characters are all likable, jack sparrow obviously, Will is still the straight man, Elizabeth has grown into a pretty cool character if a little cringe at times, villains are scary and intimidating. Most of all, Hector Barbossa is an absolute OG and hands down the best character. The soundtrack is absolutely fantastic and fits every situation. I expected the CGI to look dated, considering even early marvel stuff looks kinda bad now, but it actually holds up great? There’s some fantastic cinematography. The actions scenes are both badass and sprinkle in some fun. For an action adventure movie it’s incredibly funny and sometimes actually meaningful? To see Jack stuck with the Black Pearl, the object he loves most in the world, but robbed of his freedom, is one of the most horrific afterlifes I’ve ever seen in a subtle way. Also lines like “Problem with being the last of anything, is by and by there be none left at all” are somewhat surface level but the actors and atmosphere add emotional weight. I’ve heard people call the plot convoluted but it’s really not, I didn’t have a problem when I was like 7 and I don’t have one now. Truly Johnny Depp’s only good performance in history. Again I cannot empathize how much I laughed at this
