Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides
Ok. It's late, but here are my quick thoughts, after my second time seeing it.
Happy happy happy for any chance to see Johnny Depp and Geoffory Rush, and Captain Jack is sexy.
So relieved to be rid of Kiera and Orlando. Sorry, but its the truth.
The first pirates is still totally the best, and I still think they should have stopped there, but I think I actually enjoyed this new one more then 2 and 3.
Plot was not great, kind of sketchy.
Cleric dude and mermaid story was cute, they both provided the eye-candy they were meant for. Meh. Whatever.
Some great Jack and Barbosa moments, which is the main point for me anyway. "We shall need a cross-bow, an hourglass, three goats and one of us must learn to play the trumpet while the other goes like this." And come on, the whole movie is worth it just for the part when Barbosa puts on his really big hat.
Most of all I want that screen shot of Johnny coming up in the fog as the wallpaper in my room, with the famous grinning over his shoulder from the first movie for the other wall. And the music of course was awesome.
What did you think?
