Who is your favourite character from the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Series? Can't Post

Questions in the title: who is your favourite character from the four 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films?

As much as I like Jack Sparrow, my vote goes to his arch-rival Barbossa, played by the fantastic Geoffrey Rush. In film one he's the villain you love to hate, and he turns into the "bad but not so bad" guy in the following films. (Spoiler Alert) Plus his entrance at the end of Dead Man's Chest has to be one of the best movie endings of all time: no one was expecting that! He steals an entire 2 hour film in 10 seconds!Laugh

Oh, and he has an awesome hat!!!Wink

Jack and Barbossa [In reply to] Can't Post

Their duet defines the 'pirates' movies. Depp and Rush give brilliant performances, love them.

Anyone not in the series ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

To be honest I do not get the hype. I was underwhelmed by the first movie and never bothered to watch any other. It's totally not my cup of tea.

The CGI on that dude is simply superb (whatever else one make think of the films). I just can't get over how well he interacts with the other characters, and especially his tentacle beard. Very well done. And, of course, Bill Nighy delivers a brilliant performance.

Jack Sparrow...that's Captain Jack Sparrow :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, it's the obvious choice, but there's no POTC without him. But I love all of the characters from the first film. And they all worked so well with, and against, each other. Jack is more interesting played against Will's idealism and romanticism. The chemistry between Jack and Elizabeth is wonderful; and she was a refreshingly human female lead. And yes, Barbossa was great fun. Rush took him to the very edge of being too camp, but held him back just enough. Brilliant tight-rope walk.

Cap'n Jack [In reply to] Can't Post

I have a lot of love for Geoffrey Rush's Barbossa, but Depp created an unforgettable, iconic character with Jack - the perfect Trickster. Also, one of the best "film entrances" ever.

Trickster - that's a good word for him [In reply to] Can't Post

I love that he's a cool, swashbuckler while at the same time being a bumbling, goofball. Laugh And you're never quite sure how much is an act for trickster purposes and how much is the real Jack.

After Legolas and Gimli sail over the Havens... [In reply to] Can't Post

Legolas joins a band of pirates and assumes the new name 'Turner', trying to get in touch with his wild side after sitting around with a hair straightener for thousands of years.

What a man, what a captain, and what a pirate. Jack could learn from him on all those fields. Evil
