Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides

I have to agree with Eric – this was the fourth installment in the Pirates franchise and it felt like the fourth one.  I loved the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie!  It was whimsical, enchanting, romantic, and adventurous – as any “first” movie should be.  After that, the storylines just kept going downhill BUT the adventure and Captain Jack Sparrow stay the same.  I think that’s why there’s still a draw to these movies is because Johnny Depp plays an amazing character whom we’ve all come to love and root for!  A few new faces in this movie was a nice change, Penelope Cruz as his love interest and Ian McShane as the evil Blackbeard the Pirate.  On Stranger Tides still brings the swashbuckling adventure, the thrill of the chase, a few surprises, and of course, Jack Sparrow in all his glory.  If you are a fan of the Pirates movies you’d still want to see this one – after all – once a pirate – always a pirate!
