ChaseMCP September 5, 2015 Share September 5, 2015 Two performances from Pirates of the Caribbean: First, Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, of course. Ignore for a minute how many unfortunate sequels were created from the first movie and how this character probably overstayed his welcome. His performance as Jack Sparrow was really unique and a truly original character. I kind of wish Johnny Depp had won the Oscar that year because say what you will about how long the character has been around, I doubt there's been another Oscar-worthy performance like it. Second, Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa. Johnny Depp gets all of the attention for the movie (for good reason) but whenever I re-watch the movie, I'm finding myself enjoying Rush's performance more and more. He just looks like he's having a blast playing the character. He's a villain, but isn't a Big Bad character so he's allowed to have more fun. He's in a fun pirate movie and he knows it. He and Depp had a great chemistry and I'd say he gets the biggest laughs from me in the movie (after JD, of course). 4 Link to comment
