Ahoy Matey!! Aarrgggghhhh

Most of the time when I see a movie, in which an actor or actress has been either nominated for an Oscar or even won the damn thing itself, I end up wondering just what the heck it is about his or her performance that deserves such glowing praise from the most acclaimed award tinsel town has to offer. I often find myself feeling rather let down as the hype would have built itself into such intensity that you expect sparks to fly from the moment the guy or gal hits the screen. Ofcourse there are the exceptions; like Tom Hanks (in any of his movies) or Susan Sarandon or Nicolas Cage. One such exception is Johnny Depp in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean : The Curse of the Black Pearl This roller coaster tale teams a young man, Will Turner, with an unlikely ally in rogue pirate Jack Sparrow. Together, they must battle a band of the world's most treacherous pirates, led by the cursed Captain Barbossa, in order to save Elizabeth, the love of Will's life, as well as recover the lost treasure that Jack seeks. Against improbable odds, they race towards a thrilling, climactic confrontation on the mysterious Isla de Muerta. Clashing their swords in fiece mortal combat, Will and Jack attempt to recapture The Black Pearl ship, save the British navy, and relinquish a fortune in forbidden treasure thereby lifting the curse of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Here Johnnt Depp, plays his role fantastically well (he was compared to an early version of Keith Richards) and although he didn't win the Oscar, he certainly was worthy of it.
