Phil, this wasn’t fucking amateur hour. PEOPLE DIED BECAUSE OF YOUR LACK OF SUPERVISION. THERE WERE RAPTORS ALL UP IN THE KITCHEN PHIL. IN THE GOD DAMN KITCHEN.
YOU HAD ONE JOB PHIL. ONE JOB.
I’m sorry to pile on here, but this GODDAMN son of a bitch has been working openly in Hollywood every since, and not only hasn’t he been held accountable for the tragedy he was hired to prevent, he was actually allowed to make a documentary glorifying his failure (Phil Tippett Animatics: Raptors in the Kitchen) in which he GLOATS ABOUT IT!
Are we to be impressed by what I would argue is a criminallack of supervision?!
Ridiculous, and don’t get me started on the industry, who not only hasn’t shunned this monster, but has actually given him TWO Oscars, and he’s been nominated four other times! Well guess what Hollyweird (that’s what I call it), Gone With The Wind got 10 Oscars, was racist as shit, and the Civil Rights movement wasn’t able to break Jim Crow for another quarter century. Coincidence? You be the judge.
Oh and also, he personally oversaw the development of the wolfpack from the Twilight movies…fuck Kony, TIPPETT 2012…educate the non-believers on this animal in human clothing.
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
