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.

Which do you like better, given that no one has seen the third Pirates movie yet, and we now have six Star Wars movies?

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.

Light saber to cutlass, duel it out.

Jest ye surely, my young friend.

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)

Pirates better than Star Wars...you must have a fever.

Hi guys

mmh... each trilogy have its own merits.

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.

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.

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.

Just some humble opinion to share.

^^^It could very well become that, if you'd like to kick it off.

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

could be interesting especially if the pirates are undead.
I dunno, I think a lightsaber would be an effective way to remove the head or damage the brain of any undead deck-swabber.

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.
