I would have to say that The Curse of The Black Pearl is definitely my favorite. My least favorite is Dead Man's Chest because I'm not sure if it's just me, but I sort of found that one a bit boring tbh. :/
I would have to say The Curse Of The Black Pearl but Dead Men Tell No Tales was pretty good in my opinion.
I like all of them but the 5th movie was somewhat boring and lack of adventure.
4,3,2 were very exciting to me, Davy Jones and Black Beard were stunning characters.
I partially agree with you. Two and three kind of demanded more supernatural elements, given that they were required to extend the story and create a grand narrative stretching across three films. Dead Man's Chest had to expand upon Curse of the Black Pearl by necessity, and At World's End had to then expand upon Dead Man's Chest by arguably more necessity.Curse of the Black Pearl by far. The sequels are just that and I feel that they rely too much on the supernatural, they just don’t have the combination of reality with a touch of the supernatural that the original does.
