Recently we purchased "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow", a mediocre, old PS2 game. While the game wasn't very good, it did get Audrey and I talking about the film franchise and how badly the series ended. Specifically what happened to Keira Knightley's character Elizabeth Swann, who if you made it though the disastrous last chapter "At World's End" is forced to live alone on an island and wait for her love Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) to return for one day every ten years so they can... well, you know. As Audrey put it, "that is an anti-climatic, slightly sexist way to leave your female lead." Audrey also said (and I'll have to paraphrase) "she had these great adventures, became the Pirate King, all to end up as a single mother stranded on a deserted island."
To that I raised my coffee mug and said "Arrr, you know what they should do to fix both of those characters' crappy endings?"
