"Pirates of the Caribbean" is a huge craze. It was even bigger a couple years ago. Do you remember the time when you were constantly talking about or waiting for the next two sequels? Even now you can still hear people talk about that movie. Critics can say as much as they want about how the movie was just there at the right time or that the acting pulled it through. Those are all very valid reasons, but there is no point in denying that the Law of Attraction had an awful lot to do with it all as well.
First of all, this movie is all about fun. The primary purpose of the first movie is that it was to be a summer blockbuster, which means that they weren't necessarily looking for a whole lot of substance (it was the Disney Company so of course there would be substance, but it was not the primary focus). In that carefree sort of a way they made a fun movie out of letting go and not putting so much stress on it. They weren't trying to create an Academy picture. By letting go they were letting the Universe know that it could take care of it. . . . maybe without knowing they were ever doing that. The end result was a pirate bonanza which is and was absolutely out of this world.
On top of that you have the onset dynamics. Now, as you may know the Law of Attraction creates by feeling and if you feel happy, harmonious, and joyful about the conclusion of a situation than the Universe creates just that. Well fortunately for the cast, everyone was very harmonious and for the most part everyone worked well with each other. From Depp to Knightley to Bloom, everyone was just having fun and they happened to be making a movie at the same time. All this large scale generation of all that good will and joy, bounces back from the Universe and makes the project successful and as fortunate as it is.
Now it is time to go from the set to the audience. Lately there have been a lot of serious movies that reflect on everyday circumstances and what some people would call reality. The critics always put their attention towards those more serious movies, but the fact is that the more happy and family geared movies pull in a steadier and eventually larger revenue than those other movies that while gaining Academy attention are not so much gaining all the money. There are other things to take into consideration like DVD sales and such. Movie that give the audience happy emotions create more good things put to it than those movies that make the audience feel sadness. “Pirates of The Caribbean" is definitely a movie trilogy that does the former.
Antics, humor, beautiful scenes, and exciting plot lines make this series a great Law of Attraction example. From the creators, to the players, and then to the audience, is no wonder it captured the world and recapped the benefits of work well done. You know you've done it right when a character from your movie is put in Disney theme parks. It is amazing what our minds can do. What can your mind do?
