Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Seriously? THIS is the best they could come up with? A bunch of pirates racing to find the fountain of youth? If pirates wanted to live forever, wouldn’t they take better care of their eyes and teeth? To be fair, it does pick up right after the third one left off, but still… Was anyone […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

Three hours of my life that I will never get back. At least I broke it up into an hour apiece on three different days. It’s like they decided what special effects they wanted to do and then pieced together a plot to string the special effects together. Compounding that, it’s been so long since […]
