pirates of the carribean 1
Why is it that when Elizabeth is being taken to the Black Pearl for the first time and the moonlight is out that none of the pirates are in their skeleton mode? Just really curious to see if anyone has an answer...?
NADIA a dream is a wish your heart makes
This was a bit of a goof in the movie, if we're supposed to take it that Liz was being escorted to the Pearl while Jack was having the happy chance meeting with his ex-shipmates at his gaol cell (since the moon came out from behind the clouds just long enough for us to find out that those boys could do great Calista Flockheart impressions).
I'm just going to assume that Pintel and Ragetti (her captors) noticed the clouds shifting a bit, and decided to make her keep her head down as they rowed out to the ship (humble pirates or not, the whole crew probably understood that it was a bit too early for plot exposition).
There are about thirty-squirty zillion things that we can nitpick on this awesome movie, though (couple of my faves--if we're supposed to believe that Jack Sparrow hasn't changed that shot and powder in that pistol of his for ten years, the thing firing at all is a concept best compared to male bovine excrement. Every time we see ships in this flick, all the gun ports are open. These are raised only for imminent attack, since this really slows down your sailing, and doesn't do the constant fight against rust/saltwater corrosion any good). However, sort of relating to your original point, this flick takes place over the course of several days (we see for ourselves days turning into nights, and Tortuga is quite a journey from Port Royal), yet the moon is always full.
I think it was because the movie maker thought it was too early in the plot for the curse to be revealed to the viewer.
