This past weekend when I saw Battle: Los Angeles, there was a trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. When the trailer finished, one of the group of high schoolers sitting in front of me whispered to a friend “It’s not even in 3D,” which amused me to no end. Anyways, for those of you keeping track, this is the 4th installment of the Pirates franchise. 4th. Does anyone else feel like Disney is beating a dead horse here? Had Oscartini been up and running in 2007, a review of Pirates 3: At World’s End would’ve included “uneven”, “jerky” and “Why the F did they drag this to a third movie?”
Regardless of whether this was an ill-advised move on Disney’s part or not, it’s still happening!
There’s just something about Johnny Depp as good ol’ Captain Jack that is appealling, and I don’t know that I’m willing to miss Keith Richards’ turn as the elder Captain Sparrow, so let’s be serious: I’ll probably see it, despite the glaring absence of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly. Is PotC4 on your summer movie list?
