Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

You know that feeling you get when you're standing in a high place... sudden urge to jump?... I don't have it.

I am not going to hedge my words here. I will come straight out and say it. This is a far more enjoyable film than the first 3. Not technically or storywise better but so much more enjoyable. vlcsnap-2012-01-23-20h26m13s86

I go against the flow in this I am sure but the reason is probably the same either way. I like the changes to Jack. I detest Jack in the earlier films. He has no likeability for me, Bloom is a nobber and Knightly does little to entice me. Its nice to see a film with a more likable Jack, a less likable (but sexier) female lead and no bloody Bloom.

The plot has more holes then emmenthal cheese but at least this time around you dont need a notepad or the memory of an elephant to know what on Earth is going on. Yes the story of the Fountain of Youth is hackneyed and tired but so what!vlcsnap-2012-01-23-20h26m25s211

So probably a worse film that the others but my favourite as at last I found characters I could like. Rather then a bunch of total pratts and the story doesn't disappear up its own arse, unlike the original trilogy.

Well worth a look.vlcsnap-2012-01-23-20h26m19s151
