day 23!  
Wow, I can't believe I'm at day 23 already! But there it is. :)

Day 23: Elizabeth Swann (Pirates of the Caribbean)



I liked Elizabeth, especially in the first movie (Curse of the Black Pearl). I like to pretend that the other two never happened. Everything ended perfectly after the first movie. Though I wasn't impressed with how she handled the Jack thing, I thought she was pretty badass. She and Will were cute together. I still crack up at the idea that she burned Jack's rum. Admit it, that took some courage. Also, she was defiant with Barbossa and didn't let Jack push her around. She was awesome. :)

She was what defines a perfect female character :D

I think she was good but to be quite frank, 'perfect' is a bit of an exaggeration. At least for me. She annoyed me in DMC and AWE just as many times as I liked her.

I really liked her in every movie :D Especially how she grew to be a better fighter near the end

I liked that she grew to be a better fighter and was chosen as the Pirate Queen even, but I didn't approve of how she treated Will. I remember having a lot of issues with her personality in general, but I haven't seen DMC or AWE in years (don't really want t0; if I'm rewatching anything, it is Curse of the Black Pearl) so I can't think of anything specific off the top of my head. To sum it up, I like her, but there are a lot of other female characters I would prefer to her.

You hate the last two movies, too? I thought for sure I was the only one, haha! Everyone else I know thinks they're great... bleh. IMO, Curse of the Black Pearl was perfect as a stand alone film. The sequels were just a thinly veiled attempt to make money.... idk, I've just never felt they were on the same level as Curse of the Black Pearl. :\

Seriously? Oh yeah, you're definitely not alone! I wasn't all that impressed with the other two.

*nods* Exactly! Some sequels work but this just didn't. It felt that DMC was a big set up for AWE, and AWE's dragged too long and brought us back in full circle. I can't believe there is going to be a 4th one, though I'll probably check it out just because I love Johnny Depp. :\

I liked Elizabeth! Didn't like how she was all into Jack 1 minute then goo goo gah gah over Will the next minute but other than that still liked her.

I think I want to do this meme but in 1 post lol

Same here. That was one of my biggest problems, the whole triangle thing. I don't even know why they bothered with Jack/Elizabeth. Obviously they weren't going to end up together.

LOL You can do that! :)
