More AWE w/Spoilers  
This time with real actual spoilers! Including the scene after the credits.

I've just had a few phone conversations on this, and I just discovered something on a comm I was browsing. 'This' being the scene after the credits. Ten years later, we see Elizabeth with her son, waiting for Will. There's the green flash, and there he is, on the Dutchman, with Elizabeth and their son waiting.

What I just read was this:

Something important I found out about Will. It is confirmed in a forum post on this site by the script-writers. When you get to the site go to the forum page, scroll down and look for the MOVIES Message Board and look for one titled "Mr. Rossio I have 3 questions on the curse" Look for responses by "Ted Elliot" and "Terry" (these two are the scriptwriters for Pirates)

"Will is cursed to do the job of ferrying souls for 10 years. When He returns to land on his one day every ten years, if he finds his true love, the curse is broken and he can leave the Dutchman and lead a normal human life on land. Since Elizabeth will be waiting on him when he returns, the curse will be broken. Jones remained cursed because when he came back ten years later, his love wasn't waiting for him and he couldn't be free from the curse. He became so hurt and angry that he cut out his heart and abandoned the soul ferrying job (which is the reason he came to look like a monster)." - taken from site, verbatim

I have to say, I like this much better than them doomed to live apart forever. As much as I love tragedy and angst, you know? :)

(and in the OUCH! department... this article)

And now, I really need to go to bed!

BTW, the soundtrack is awesome! Been listening to it tonight.

You know, I hate it when movies put important plot stuff like that AFTER the credits. I wouldn't have hated the way the Elizabeth/Will plotline resolved if they'd have, oh, put that minor bit of information in the actual film. Honestly. How difficult would it have been to do an addendum. "Oh, then Ten Years Later ...."? ::sigh::

If I were Queen of the Pirates, I'd have put the tag scene at the end of the film, and moved Jack on his dinghy to the tag scene. But, I'm not, so...

Well, they *did* kill Will in this film... kind of, sort of, maybe... VBEG. Loved AWE! And I like the idea that Will is free of the curse.

And they lived happily ever after...

Yeah, even I like happy endings :)

OH GOOD LORD.. as much as I love happy endings - that feels like fanwanking to me.. especially if they shoved it in a place most people miss.

That is just disrepectful for the fans as well.. we take this journey and then poof.. all back to normal. I think the plot for 4 could have been that 10 years and getting Will back, but now I feel cheated... I did not get to enjoy the journey - it is just fixed ... *slaps writers*

So, now the writers are in a pickle.. do they ingore the 10 year sprint ahead and do # 4 at the end of the "movie" or is that 10 years part of canon, so now they have to have an adventure, while managing and carig for a 10 year old child... *shakeshead*

It is the same reason why I can't forgive House - although the rest of the world did. He has not shown that he earned it, everyone just seems to give it to him, well except me.

I thought it was funny that they had to 'get married' durning the battle, so that they could have guilt free sex on the island.

Maybe if I see it I will hate that part less.

off to get hair done and work at SIFF... will be back in 16 or so hours. (fyi)

I loved the wedding scene! One of my favourite bits.

From some of the scuttlebutt going around, Will and Elizabeth won't be in the next one. It would make sense. Just Jack and a set of new adventures. would definitely make it fresh.

and I'm leaving too -- won't be back till late Sunday [g]

o now they have to have an adventure, while managing and carig for a 10 year old child... *shakeshead*

This is why The Mummy Returns was not as great as it could've been. Kids ruin everything.

I'm curious. I didn't find the forum page on there, both links are the same. I'd be curious about that because it seems like that would be important info that would be in the movie. Although the writers have given away other information somewhat like that in their commentaries of the first two so I could be wrong. That just seems like important plot information.

The soundtrack is awesome just by itself. We had to run out and buy it today.

Yeah, after the credits.
