The Cinematheque Reviews: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Everyone keeps harping on about how god-awful the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie is.  Granted, it's not exactly cinema for the ages but as far as swashbuckling movies go - well, it certainly swashes its buckles.  Seriously though, the movie is fun pop entertainment that should not be tossed away so lightly by the snobbery of film criticism (a snobbery I myself must admit to partaking of on numerous occasions).  My review of said fun pop entertainment is up and running over at The Cinematheque.

This one didn't feel as epic as the second and third Pirates films and in many ways that's a good thing. I also wish they did more with Captain Jack, but Depp is always amusing as him, and I still had some fun with this enjoyable Summer blockbuster. Good review, check out mine when you can!

Thanx. I do agree with you that Marshall is not the director Verbinski is, but I still quite enjoyed this one.
