    Yeah which is why we need to rethink what the metrics of success are when looking at global takes.

    I would not be surprised if the accounting/reporting for global budgets is not quite aligned here either. Reported Budgets haven't moved much... yet global footprint is much much higher?? Does not compute.

    Production budgets (what's reported) not moving much, wouldn't surprise me. It's marketing that has most likely increased in recent years.

    I know... but when talking costs.. they usually lump both together or guestimate the marketing. My point is people are comparing global grosses to a 250 number that probably isn't representative of their actual costs because of the changing global spending.

    Finally saw it and enjoyed it. Some issues that could be resolved in the next film if they keep doing flashbacks. It was great seeing most of the original secondary characters back for this one. Corinna was a great addition- and I'm thinking she has quite an inheritance coming her way, one she could use more for science and exploration than piracy. If you are a fan of the series as a whole, then I can't see you not enjoying this one. I'd put it in the middle ranking wise.

    Yeah, the bit where Tia Dalma says, "Dat compass you barter from me, it cannot find dis?" rang in my ears when they decided to retcon the provenance of the compass. Jack having to barter the compass from her lets the imagination run in all manner of, well, interesting directions.

    As for the Revenge, that be a simple one to suss out. Only one man wanted the Pearl as much as Jack Sparrow. Barbossa had it easy on the Revenge. His men were tripping over the swag, and he needn't lift a finger to get any prey to heave to without a fight. That gets mighty boring. The Pearl meant just as much to Barbossa as it did Sparrow. It meant freedom, it meant power, and it meant working for the spoils you took. And it meant the possibility you might fail. The exhilaration of being alive, your will against that of another captain and his crew and the sea and winds, and fortune itself!

    Yeah. Give me the Pearl, a stalwart crew, and a fair wind any day. The Revenge made things too easy, says I.

    I know that this is merchandise, but I'm so excited that I finally got the Minimates Jack and Barbossa!!

    P.S.
    Sorry about the picture quality.

    No. Haven't got the Mary yet. Still don't even have the Pearl that Lego made. I'm going crazy over any merchandise that I can find. Can't wait for those diamond Jack and Barbossa action figures to come out. They are so realistic!!

    I'm not a Lego aficionado, but I am sorely tempted to do the Metal Earth "Black Pearl". I have to get through building the Haunted Mansion first.

    That Silent Mary set is gorgeous, but I don't have anywhere to keep it out. If I had the space I'd rather have the Black Pearl or Flying Dutchmen model.

    i'm not the lego guy i once was (in elementary school) but whenever a pirates film comes out they usually do a ship and i'll grab it. they did a pearl, queene anne's revenge (from Stranger Tides), and now this. The Pearl and Revenge are crazy expensive if you find one on ebay still in the box.

    They were pretty awesome. They were made around the time of Dead Man's Chest and were discontinued after At World's End. I have the Black Pearl flagship battler that they made and a whole lot more. In terms of Legos, I have every set except the Pearl, the Revenge, Whitecap Bay, and the Mary.

    No need to buy new in box with lego. Solid market for complete used sets. In fact I'm shipping out the simpsons house today :)

    I also have the black pearl ... but it's my daughters. Wonder if she wants to sell :)
