Director: Gore Verbinski
Released: 2006
Stars: Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightly

The Film: The follow-up to the incredibly OTT Pirate romp picks up where the first movie left off, at the wedding of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan. Before either can say 'I do', the notorious Captain Jack Sparrow comes between them again in his quest to escape the clutches of the stuck up Captain Beckett and to save his soul from Davy Jones and a watery grave.

Soundtrack: Hans Zimmer’s score is just as OTT as Jack Sparrow. It’s music with its nostrils flared, its chest out and its tongue in its cheek.
