I’ve always loved Will’s split second face of “Barbossa? What the fuck? When was he an option?!”

and then there’s Barbossa’s reaction. omg

This was the best wedding in cinematic history and if you don’t agree with me you’re wrong.



#a shipwreck of love and ambition seeking refuge among the rocks that shattered him  #(and I do believe he wasn’t intending to ally with Beckett; not at first  #he was just useless and drunken and signed on because why the fuck not)  #just…look at the way that he looks at her  #that is not a look of unrequited love; that is not even bitterness over spurned love  #that is the look of a man who is so far past losing everything that he can only laugh  #(what’s one more bullet wound when you’ve already bled out?)  #potc is about the ways people become pirates–and it’s always wanting that drives them there  #wanting love wanting freedom wanting a ship wanting glory wanting wealth wanting and wanting and wanting  #piracy is about the ability to chase that wanting; to cut the corners and simply aim yourself at what you desire  #Jack’s compass natch)  #but how do you stride for the horizon in a shipwreck? you’re left with just the wanting  #and the wanting kills  #and that’s what Commodore Norrington here is about (notbecauseofvictories)
