Supporting Roles in Movies and TV Plays I Like

Pirates of the Caribbean

After Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, I re-watched the previous trilogy. Then I realized I liked some supporting roles with strong personalities very much in this film series.

Captain Hector Barbossa

Captain Hector Barbossa
It is hard to tell why I like captain Barbossa. Maybe it is just my feel. In the movies, Barbossa always comes out and then gives me surprises or shocks. I like his ways of behaving and giving his orders to the crew with his rude language. One of the best scenes in the movie is that captain Barbossa drinks the wine deeply but can’t taste it. Also I like his monkey.

Pintel and Ragetti

Pintel and Ragetti
Each time I saw them in the movies, I would laugh out loudly. I like them just because they could provide comic relief. They are also lucky enough to survive in the fights and appear in the previous trilogy. In addition, I feel sorry for Ragetti’s wooden eye-ball and I think that he may replace it with a golden or jewelry eye ball at last. Due to Pintel and Ragetti, we get more things from this film series besides the cruelty of pirates.

Gunther is my favorite supporting role

As of now, among all the movies and TV plays, I like Gunther in Friends mostly. I like his accent and his haircut.

Here I may go on writing something about the supporting roles that I like in the movies and TV plays. I also want to know which supporting role you like mostly. You can reply here.

Never to Give up the Pursuit of Dreams

One weekend I talked to a stranger while I was warming up before a match. He asked, “What do you do?” I replied that I owned a software company. “Really? How admirable,” he said, “I have been wanting to work in animation design and freelance. This is my dream. But now I am caught up in the wrong office job.” I asked in a low voice, “You are alive, aren’t you?” He went on talking, “You don’t understand. I have been waiting ten years for this dream. But once you are married it would be difficult for you to do what you really like?”

I gave him many suggestions. But he always had plenty of excuses. He kept saying that, “With a family to feed and a full time job I can’t spare any time to do what I like.” At last I stopped talking. And I didn’t want to argue with him on our first meeting.

And now I understand that not everyone wants to devote all their time and energy to their dreams. And many people don’t know that they have to give something up if they want their dreams to come true.

I am still impressed and encouraged by the lines in the movie The Pursuit of Happiness, “You got a dream, you gotta protect it.” “Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something, not even me.
