We finally watched “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”.
Before I start ranting about the movie I must add that Johnny’s new sound system is amazing! It really does make a difference and I now see no reason to go to the movies when I have a cinema at home.
A little boasting never hurts, right?
I was reluctant to watch this movie because everyone said it sucked. Well, the movie didn’t sucked but my friends failed to make themselves understood. What they meant was “It sucked because the lack of humor”.
The humor that was enjoyed so much and dare I say, what made the series such a hit was completely gone from this last installment. It was really a shame because that’s what made the series so appealing.
Even Jack Sparrow didn’t seem as Jack Sparrow. He seemed toned down and mellow. But was he supposed to be that way? Was his love for the beautiful Angelica Teach (played by Penelope Cruz) what made him mellow?
Also, the movie introduced us to two new actors that I’m sure almost nobody has ever heard of: Astrid Berges-Frisbey (who played the beautiful mermaid Syrena) and Sam Claflin (who played Philip, the religious samaritan). Their love story was played beautiful, in what meant to be a pure love at first sight.
Hmmm, there was a lot of love going on in this movie. Maybe that’s why they didn’t have any room left for the humor. I actually missed the original couple: Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Now, I’m not saying that they could’ve saved this movie but at least I like Orlando Bloom.
Oh well, the movie wasn’t that bad. It was rather good and it even had some action thrown in at the end. But what I liked most was Jack return to his whiskey island to drop Angelica. It was probably the best part of the movie: the ending.
It was OK, seriously I enjoyed it and Johnny did as well. But you can’t actually compare it with the first two movies of the series now can you?
