I finally saw Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest last night at the cheap theater. My friend next to me kept pointing out similarities to parts of the Star Wars movies, and I had to agree. Since Pirates will most certainly be a trilogy (at least), it bears comparison.<br><br><br><br>
Which do you like better, given that no one has seen the third Pirates movie yet, and we now have six Star Wars movies?<br><br><br><br>
Star Wars, Episodes 4-6 are my favorites. As much as I thoroughly enjoyed the Pirates movies, Star Wars still gets my vote. IMHO Star Wars has more intellectual content that a person can mull over later. There are more layers to Star Wars theology/philosophy. Pirates is kind of like... Oooooh bad things are happening, it's because of a curse, gotta fix it. It seems somewhat simplistic compared to Star Wars.<br><br><br><br>
Light saber to cutlass, duel it out.

Star Wars has the higher ground, no question. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smoking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smoke:">

Jest ye surely, my young friend.<br><br><br><br>
Pirates merely longs to bask in rays of the glorious sunshine that is Star Wars (ep 4-6, not the other crap that Lucas made after he went off his rocker)<br><br><br><br>
Pirates better than Star Wars...you must have a fever.

I haven't seen the second POTC yet.<br><br><br><br>
I will agree that I think SW 4-6 is the best. I can't help but like <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/zennedout/1163720501972.jpg" target="_blank">Jedi Squirrels</a>, though.

Hi guys<br><br><br><br>
mmh... each trilogy have its own merits.<br><br><br><br>
Star Wars (I love all 6 parts), clearly distinguish between the bad and the good. Star Wars contents are richer and more interesting than Pirates of Carribean.<br><br><br><br>
However, Pirates of Carribeans are more fun to watch. I like Pirates because it doesn't really care who good or bad. In fact, Captain Jack Sparrow is a bad and selfish person, but we love that guy rite? I find Pirates' characters closer to real-life human nature. We don't find many Jedi Knights in our daily life, but we sure find many Pirates around us.<br><br><br><br>
Alright, the conclusion here is, Star Wars still works better for me. Like some said, I must be running a fever to choose Pirates over Jedi.<br><br><br><br>
Just some humble opinion to share.

The Shadows. They would mop the floor with any Jedi and are way cooler-looking than any pirate so..

^^^It could very well become that, if you'd like to kick it off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

If Ninjas are tougher, would they be tougher than pirates and jedi combined?

<br><br><br><span style="color:#008000;">I dunno, I think a lightsaber would be an effective way to remove the head or damage the brain of any undead deck-swabber. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

Pirates of the Caribbean would have been better without a sequel. Star Wars just flat out sucked, then they made it even worse by releasing the new ones as absolute kiddy movies.

Well, probably don't need me to answer but I will...<br><br><br><br>
I prefer POTC (quelle surprise as I'm not sexyyoda). HOWEVER, I think Star Wars was 'better'. Episodes 4-6 anyway. 1-3 were fairly rubbish.
