Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
Technically this is a “Watching Reco”, because it’s a film 😉
Many of you may have already watched this 2007 film. The film is better known for its visual effects, but this reco is more for its terrific dialogues!
Incidentally, at US$300 million, this film is the most expensive movie ever made to date!
Here are some dialogues from the film that I liked 🙂
Barbossa: Dying is the day worth living for.
Will Turner: No cause is lost if there is but one fool left to fight for it.
Jack Sparrow: Well that’s even more than less than unhelpful
Will Turner: [to Elizabeth Swann] If you make your choices alone, how can I trust you?
Norrington: Our fates have been entwined, Elizabeth, but never joined.
Barbossa: You have to be lost to find a place that can’t be found, elseways everyone would know where it was.
Jack Sparrow: William, have you noticed something? Or rather, have you noticed something that’s not there to be noticed?
Barbossa: Still thinkin’ of running, Jack? Think you can outrun the world? You know the problem with being the last of anything, by and by there be none left at all.
Jack Sparrow: I have no sympathy for any of you feculent maggots and no more patience to pretend otherwise. Gentlemen, I wash my hand of this weirdness.
Officer: [to Lord Cutler Beckett Officer about Jack Sparrow] Do you think he plans it all out, or just makes it up as he goes along?
Jack Sparrow: [about the condition of the tack line] It is neither proper nor suitable. It is not acceptable, nor adequate. It is, in obvious fact, an abomination.
Captain Sao Feng: The only way for a pirate to make a living these days is by betraying other pirates.
Jack Sparrow: Mr. Gibbs!
Gibbs: Aye, cap’n?
Jack Sparrow: You may throw my hat if you wish.
Gibbs: Aye, AYE! [Gibbs throws Jack’s hat into the celebrating crowd]Gibbs: Hurrah!
Jack Sparrow: Now go and get it.
Elizabeth Swann: Pretty speech from a captor, but words whispered through prison bars lose their charm.
Jack Sparrow: [to Tia Dalma] You add an agreeable sense of the macabre to any delirium.
Captain Barbossa: I do not renege on a bargain once struck but we agreed on ends only, the means are mine to decide.
Elizabeth Swann: You will listen to me! LISTEN! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, no they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colours!
