FRANCHISE RANKING: The "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" Movies


Below is my ranking of the three "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" movies from my favorite to my least favorite. All three were directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. They starred Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Here they are:


FRANCHISE RANKING: The "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" Movies


1. "Dead Man's Chest" (2006) - That is correct. The second entry in this particular franchise that continued the story of Jack Sparrow,Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann is my favorite. Not only did it introduced the characters of Captain Davy Jones, Tia Dalma and Lord Cutler Beckett; it might be the darkest in the entire series and has one of the best movie endings I have ever clapped eyes upon.




2. "The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003) - This is the movie that spawned the franchise and considered the most popular with the fans. Although not my top favorite, I still love it. The movie introduced Captain Jack Sparrow and company as they deal with a cursed Aztec treasure and the ghostly crew of Jack's former ship.




3. "At World's End" (2007) - In this final entry in the franchise (so far), Will, Elizabeth and Hector Barbossa must lead a crew to Davy Jones' Locker and rescue Jack in order to deal with the threat of Lord Cutler Beckett and the East India Trading Company, along with a vengeful Captain Davy Jones.
