Now Playing: The Battle/To Dawg's Ship*/Morgan Battles Dawg*/Dawg's Demis
I actually was lucky enough to see this movie on the big screen when it first came out. I believe it was pulled so I must have gotten in early. It was an experience I never forgot. Great action (the opening of Morgan's Ride and the ship battle at the end OMG and of course the carriage chase and prison battle!), romance, comedy, and PHENOMENAL MSUIC! A rousing good rowdy romp of a pirate movie! I had seen the trailer and thought it looked cool and so went with my little brother. Frankly, I remember Cutthroat far more fondly than I do the Pirates of the Caribbean movies (especially the last two. The first was the best of the 3). Debney's music is absolutely MIND-BLOWING. I got the score years and years ago. I'm just at this moment listening to the 2 disk version and it's still blowing me away. Instead of being one of my top 10 worst movies of all time it's in my top 10 BEST (not including stuff like Star Wars, LOTR, Indiana Jones, etc that come in serieses. They're on that list but each series just gets one spot. Hehehe). This review here was spot on and it is truly a GEM of a soundtrack. For being so little known and so much maligned as a movie, this soundtrack just stays with you and lives on much better than the soundtracks of so called "Blockbusters"
