Swash Buckle

On Saturday night we got round to watching the first instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean, just as the sequel reaches the cinemas…It is a great fantasy adventure, reminiscent of The Princess Bride – except that The Princess Bride lacks the genius-at-work that is Johnny Depp, the very likeable Orlando Bloom, and the very lovely Keira Knightley…

I love the open secret that apprentice blacksmith Will Turner (Bloom), and not his drunken master, is the real master swordsmith. I like open secrets…they add something to a story.
