To all fans of the movie who are saying that the music is great:

Just becuase you liked the movie and thought the music was cool doesn't mean that this is a historically great score. If you compare the score to other sailing movies, new or old, you'll find out that the POTC score is not only simplistic, but it downright sucks!
Try listening to Cutthroat Island by John Debney or The Sea Hawk by Erich W. Korngold and you'll get classic swashbuckling music. This Media Ventures crap is generic, machine-generated bullsh#t music meant to attract simple-minded viewers of the simple-minded film.
If you give POTC five stars, you are proving your own stupidity about film music!
