Don't touch my booty!




My unbiased Pirates review.....










I can see why the pre-release critics reviews were off. This movie was good but not great. The main reason is that it didn't feel like an extension of the first two films. It does not begin were dead mans chest ended causing a "WTF is going on?" This coupled with the fact that the first 20 min were an artistic, cinematic telling of Jack stuck in Davy Jone's locker (Davy Jone's locker must be a metaphor for a highly drunk on rum dream state). Sure, I like abstract films but when you bite into an apple you don't want it to taste like a pickle. There are a couple things that happen in the film that needed more time to make it believable even though the movie is nearly 3 hours long. To end the trilogy or not to end the trilogy that is the question. C'mon Disney, let it go make a new film. The ending was a bit too vague for me. They wanted to leave it open for another production, but really how could they keep people interested? I lost interest in the story of worlds end real fast. They just didn't make a strong enough point of the plot. It wasn't a total crapper though, some good humor moments thanks to dead monkey.

Well at least they got a jar of dirt...
