“I’m not doing it again”

Well, he did it again. Johnny Depp made another Pirates movie. This edition didnt need to be made. It’s dull, forced and we’ve seen it all before. All it serves to do is set the stage for the next one.

Ok, the island are good and the ships are brilliant. Also the makeup is superb. But that doesnt make it worth while. In fact it kinda cheapens the previous ones for me. Mind you, the first was the winner, the second was ok, the third was starting to get dull and now this happened.

There are better things in life than continuing to keep that same formula and drag Johnny through sword fights on barrels and watery poncing. He’s great but it’s the same thing too  many times.

 

Keep DVD?
No.
Watch if on TV?
Yes. These films are always good fun – a bit like the Raiders or LORs.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snog.
