No Knightley. No Bloom. But the latest Pirates doesn’t need them. In the spirit of the first movie, we get elaborate swordfights set to daring, dramatic music. Like the second and third installments (which I loved), there are plotlines galore. Jack, as usual, wants the Pearl, Barbossa wants Blackbeard, Blackbeard wants the Fountain of Youth. Actually, most of the characters on the border of the story want the Fountain of Youth (hello, PLOTLINES). The mermaids terrify and amaze. I loved them! And, oh yeah, there’s a
shirtless, scrumptious missionary.
With a cliffhanger ending, I’m game for another round. Savvy?
Jumped right into it, didn't I? :)
Thinking of the Pirates franchise, I'm reminded of the very best episode (my opinion) of Ask a Ninja. Watch it here. Keep in mind, again, I liked the second and third movie. I ooohed when Elizabeth kissed Jack. I oh-no'd when the sword pierced Will's heart. I'm a fan. I also liked the last Matrix movie. Please, no rotten vegetables! But the Ask a Ninja review is hilarious. If you haven't seen it, scroll up and click.
Go see Pirates! Let me know what you thought of it!
