azebz 2023/01/15



Captain Jack Sparrow owes a blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones, ruler of the ocean depths and captain of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. Jack must find a way out of his debt or else be doomed to eternal damnation and servitude in the afterlife.

Meanwhile, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann are arrested for helping Jack escape execution by the British East India Trading Company. Lord Cutler Beckett offers clemency if Will agrees to search for Jack’s compass - a magical device that points to whatever its holder wants most.

Will follows Jack’s trail to Tortuga where he finds him being chased by angry villagers who want revenge for his past crimes. After a tense standoff, they strike a deal - Will helps Jack find the key to the Dead Man’s Chest which contains Davy Jones’ heart and will give whoever possesses it control over him and his crew. In exchange, Jack will give Will his precious compass.

Jack leads them on a perilous journey through jungles infested with cannibals, across treacherous waters filled with monstrous sea creatures, and finally to Isla Cruces where they find the chest buried on an ancient battlefield.

However, before they can retrieve it, they are ambushed by Davy Jones’ crew who also want possession of the chest. A fierce battle ensues but is interrupted when Elizabeth arrives with reinforcements from Beckett’s navy who capture all parties involved.

Beckett takes possession of both the chest and the heart and orders Davy Jones to destroy all pirate vessels in exchange for his freedom from his own curse. Meanwhile, Will is branded a pirate and sentenced to death.

In a daring rescue attempt, Jack frees himself from prison and escapes with help from his former flames - Angelica and Tia Dalma. They set sail towards World’s End where they hope to confront Davy Jones once again.

On board The Black Pearl, tensions rise between Will and Elizabeth as they both struggle with their feelings for each other and loyalty to Jack. They finally reach World’s End where they confront Davy Jones who has become even more ruthless and monstrous after losing his heart.

After a tense battle, Jack retrieves the chest and hands it over to Beckett, hoping to buy Will’s freedom. However, Beckett double-crosses them and orders his navy to attack all pirate vessels in sight including The Black Pearl.

In a final showdown between the Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl, Will is mortally wounded but manages to kill Davy Jones by stabbing his heart - thus becoming the new captain of the Flying Dutchman. Jack escapes with his crew while Beckett is killed by Davy Jones’ crew who turn against him.

Will is forced to leave Elizabeth behind as he must fulfill his duties as captain of the Flying Dutchman but promises to return in ten years’ time. Jack sets sail once again towards uncharted waters with a new mission - finding the Fountain of Youth.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
