Bring us that horizon!  We're sailing the Seven Seas with the worst pirate you've ever heard of... but you have heard of him in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, & Georgia – along with Ethan from Talking the Mickey -  as we head into Crossover infested waters.  It's anything but a mutiny in this 40th episode as we discuss:

  • How did a film based off of theme park ride have any business being this good?
  • The parts of the Jack Sparrow character that Johnny Depp was successful in petitioning for and the nonsense that he was overruled on.
  • The many alternate versions of this film that could've hit cinema screens if other casting choices had gone ahead
  • What other cinematic swordfight the Sparrow/Turner clash reminds us of
  • Why you can't read the sub-title on the film's poster
  • Where Hans Zimmer got inspiration for the film's theme
  • We talk about if we want to see another Pirates film with Depp?  Without Depp?
  • We rave about the introduction Verbinski gives us to Captain Jack
  • We gush about the character development and the intelligence of the script
  • Whether or not Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is the Best Film Ever.
