Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales came out last weekend, and that is when I saw the movie. It's definitely better than the fourth movie, On Stranger Tides. But it still falls short compared to the first three IMO. They are some good things in it though. One of the opening sequences involving Jack and Co. stealing a bank vault is really cool. It definitely something not seen in a Pirates movie before, and it's one of my favorite action scenes in the movie. The relationship between Henry and Carina, the two love interests, doesn't feel near as forced here as the one between the guy and the mermaid in the the fourth one. There're no Will and Elisabeth, but I did care for them a little bit by the end of the movie. And the visuals in this film are stunning. This movie really looks great most of the time. But this does have some issues. One of them is Jack Sparrow. He's a little too goofy here than he has been in the other movies. Yeah, that's part of his character. But in the other films it felt like he always had a plan underneath the silliness. Here, his character just feels off, like he's trying too hard to get a laugh from the audience. For most of DMTNT, I felt like Jack was just winging it, which isn't like him. Another issue is the villains. Captain Salazar was cool, and his backstory gave him a good reason for wanting Jack dead. But I don't think he was as interesting of a supernatural villain as Barbossa in Pirates 1 or Davy Jones in the second and third movies. Plus, the designs of some of his crew just looked odd. One guy was missing the upper half of his head, and another was just a floating pair of hands. A FLOATING PAIR OF HANDS! Yes, they were ghosts, and the way they were cursed sort of explains why they look as they do. But they still looked weird. There is also a wedding scene that just didn't need to be in this film. It tries to be funny, but is painful to watch. My biggest issue with the film, however, kind of goes into spoiler territory. It involves the end of the film. So I will put it in spoiler tags. I know I've ranted on this film a bit, and I don't mean to sound like I hated it. Because I didn't hate all of it. I was just mostly disappointed by it. I really liked the first three Pirate films, especially At World's End. I was hoping after the disaster that was On Stranger Tides, DMTNT would help put the series back on track and be as good as those movies. Though it does take steps in that direction, it also hammers home that maybe its time for the franchise to finally be put to rest. And if the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are going to keep being like this, then maybe it is time for it to end. Have you seen Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales? If so, what did you think of it? And what is your overall favorite Pirates movie?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joO-EJDjO54 Well, I wasn't expecting to see this during the season 2 finale of Fear The Walking Dead. This is a cool teaser IMO. It doesn't give away too much, yet gets one excited for the movie, just as a teaser trailer should do. There really isn't much to say about it, other than it looks like Jack Sparrow will be dealing with another supernatural Pirate crew. They sort of look like Davy Jones's crew from the second and third movies, but with more of a ghostly presence about them. Maybe these guys are ghost pirates? Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing this latest movie. I really enjoyed the first three Pirates movies, though I wasn't too impressed with the fourth one. Hopefully this film will be good like the first three before it.
