Pirates of the Caribbean - dead something or other

What a bucket of bilge-water. It was all style over substance. No characters worth caring about. No clever flowing scenes. Jarring changes.
Obvious bits thrown in for the 3D version.

I'm done with this franchise now (and I did like it a lot in a daft way)

I enjoyed it. Better than the last but that's not saying much.

Spoiler: show
Does destroying the trident mean that Barbossa can't be brought back like before?

Spoiler: show
I don't know if the Trident is like a one time deal, or whether it is like.. no more magical curses forever?


Also the Special Effects for Salazar and his crew were really good.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

Yesterday was John Wick: Chapter 2, which was damn good. Holy crap! Keanu killed so many dudes!

Today was Moonlight, which was... phew. Yeah.

Great films, but the tonal change was whiplash inducing. :shock:

John Wick has gotten me in the mood to watch some recent action movie classics.

So, putting my 3D TV to good use again with Dredd.
=D>
Continues to be a damn fine film.

I started re-watching Blade 2 on Netflix the other night. It's still awesome.

I'll never get over those CGI people in that fight scene. Good lord. It really does look like a video game. A bad one, at that. :lol:

Keep thinking I want to re watch the Blade films, but I then remember they're a tiny bit rubbish. 8-[
