This has probably been discussed before in this forum?
But I have recently watched the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, which I found amusing and very reminiscent of Monkey Island. (I know that it was inspired by a Disneyland ride - the same ride, I believe, that played a part in MI2).
These are some of the things I noticed - I am certain there must be more. I suspect, also, that some of these are meant as a "tip of the hat" or homage to the Monkey Island Series:
Captain Sparrow sailing in a coffin
The mysterious voodoo lady
The undead skeleton pirates
Insult Sword Fighting
Among the recurring characters is a (cursed) monkey
What be your verdict? (arrrrh!) :)
