Synopsis - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
In an era when pirates roamed the Caribbean seas, Governor's daughter Elizabeth Swann (Knightly) is kidnapped by evil pirate Captain Barbossa aboard most feared of all pirate ships The Black Pearl. Elizabeth's childhood friend and admirer Will Turner (Bloom) is forced to team up with rogue pirate Jack Sparrow to save her.
Little do Turner and Sparrow know what they're up against as it is slowly revealed that Barbossa and his salty crew are cursed. Forced to exist between living and dead, and only revealing their skeleton forms in the moonlight, the pirates intend to use Elizabeth's blood to break the curse and return them to the world of the living. Determined to save the love of his life Turner is prepared to do anything to thwart the dastardly pirate's plans.
Synopsis - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Captain Jack Sparrow owes a blood debt to the legendary|Davy Jones, Ruler of the Ocean Depths, who captains the ghostly Flying|Dutchman, which no other ship can match in speed and stealth. Unless the ever-crafty Jack figures a cunning way out of this Faustian pact, he will|be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation in the service of Jones. This startling development interrupts the wedding plans of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who once again find themselves thrust into Jack's misadventures, leading to escalating confrontations with sea monsters, very unfriendly islanders, flamboyant soothsayer Tia Dalma and even the mysterious appearance of Will's long-lost father, Bootstrap Bill.
Meanwhile, ruthless pirate hunter Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company sets his sights on retrieving the fabled "Dead Man's Chest". According to legend, whoever possesses the Dead Man's Chest gains control of Davy Jones, and Beckett intends to use this awesome power to destroy every last Pirate of the Caribbean once and for all. For times are changing on the high seas, with businessmen and bureaucrats becoming the true pirates, and freewheeling, fun-loving buccaneers like Jack and his crew threatened with extinction.
