A long time ago:
I think I’ll give this ‘Mass Effect’ game a try…
thatvintagenerd said: Yeah it was really strange seeing him like that. IMO I like the 2nd one moreout of ALL, despite him dying. It’s mainly because of Davey Jones, but the third one just crushed everything about him so I hate the 3rd even more so. (I just like the music)
I honestly can’t say a single thing about 3rd and 4th, good or bad, and I didn’t really much like anything about the 2nd one. Or maybe I did, but not enough to remember it? I only really liked the first movie though, and I like it intensely, intensely enough to make up for all four movies, I think, haha. I kind of liked the 2nd one for a while, mostly because of Davy Jones too, but then after a while that dissipated and now I’m kind of indifferent to Davy Jones, and the movie lost any redeeming qualities to me. I really wanted to like Davy Jones, but I think I kind of only did because I felt like I should. Sigh.
Also, I could tell that this whole heart, love, curse stuff was leading up to some great heartbreaking tragedy Mass Effect style, so no, thanks a lot, I’ll pass. And now Norrington. Dammit.
Oh Oh OH but I liked Tia Dalma a lot! I just remembered. I thought she was really cool. I think Tia Dalma was my favourite character from PotC 2. Just so nobody thinks I hated Tia Dalma as well. That’s one thing I did like. I liked Tia Dalma. Not enough to watch the sequels though. I liked Norrington being alive more than I liked seeing Tia Dalma.
Actually, I can see a trend here. Norrington’s character being destroyed and flipped 180 degrees between 1st and 2nd, Davy Jones starts to suck after the 2nd… well, I probably don’t want to see what happened to Tia Dalma.
thatvintagenerd said: It was a really shitty death too. I was so pissed off because I really like him as well. The third and 4th ones are just… ugh.
I actually read the paragraph that briefly described what happened to him, and I thought “Aw man he sacrificed himself for Elizabeth? So it’s at least in character, kinda?” but
I guess it’s not enough to go on when judging it, really. I didn’t like anything that happened to him in the second movie (actually it’s more like I hated that that completely new character in PotC 2 stole Norrington’s name and pretended it’s him), and I’m not willing to believe that the 3 and 4 ones fix that in any way, and I think I’ll take your word for it
But then, I kind of decided to refuse to acknowledge the existence of the second movie at all, and subsequently of any other sequels (and it’s even easier with the later ones which I haven’t even seen), so well, for me, Norrington stayed the amazing wigged military gentleman forever. The amazing wigged military ALIVE gentleman.
Dammit Gore Verbinsky
(but thank you for the original Norrington, Gore Verbinsky. Just so we’re clear.)
I really wanna see my otp…

*police sirens in the distance*
*helicopter search lights in your yard*
*SWAT team barges in*
oh my fucking god I looked up Norrington on PotC wiki
and apparently he dies in the third movie
I haven’t seen At The World’s End because the 2nd one made me completely ‘meh’ in regard to the whole franchise and I decided to only acknowledge the 1st one to exist forever
guys, Norrington gets killed
fuck you Gore Verbinsky or whoever made the third movie
yes I checked it’s Gore Verbinsky. Fuck Gore Verbinsky for everything that happens to Norrington after the first movie, all of it fucking sucks. All of it that I can remember, and the rest must not have been very memorable anyway.
I can’t believe my luck, I almost watched that movie once, I was so close
I’m so happy
don’t worry, James Norrington, you will live forever as the Norrington from the first movie to me.
