What is /tv/'s opinion of Pirates of the Caribbean film series?
Love it? Hate it?
Personally, I find the series to be a guilty pleasure.
The first one was great, but I also really enjoyed the second and third. I see them is a trilogy, and I find the second and third to not be as good as the first, but still a damn fun film.
Keep in mind, I do not think they're breaking new grounds, and I fully agree with people saying the second and third aren't very good (but I still really like them)
inb4 Johnny Depp hate. I don't really like him in most movies, but I like him as Jack Sparrow. He just plays him so oddly, and so cleverly.

So, patrician or pretentious?
I personally think it lies somewhere in between, though leaning slightly towards pretentious. It doesn't think too highly of itself but it does have an intentionally fucked up narrative to make the story seem more complicated than it was. I'm not being an internet tough guy and saying I understood the movie, I had to look up an explanation, but once I found out the plot it seemed stupidly simple for all the hoops one has to go through to figure it out, it's disproportionate is all. Still, the movie has ambition and cute-ass pigs so good effort I guess.
