Hello, my darling readers!
We made it to the final Pirates of the Caribbean movie. (At least for now!) Dead Men Tell No Tale is the fifth film of the franchise, so let’s see if it’s worth watching!
The Plot (according to RT):
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.
Okay, so here is the deal. I binged all movies a while ago with the intention of writing these reviews. And then I didn’t. By the time I actually got around to writing, I had to rewatch the films as I had forgotten all of the details. Not just that, I had completely erased all memory of the existence of the fifth movie. Once I checked Disney+ and saw the list, I remembered that I absolutely hated it. But I figured I’ll have to check it out again. And turns out, the second time around I didn’t loath it quite as much. It’s still a film that was very much unnecessary and that is leeching off of a big franchise to make even more money.
Come to think of it, I might even like this better than the fourth film.
