Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides 4
Brady and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides in 3-D on Monday.
I'm not a huge Pirates fan. I liked the first one OK.. but, the next two I didn't like very much at all.
Although Brady LOVES them! The theme song is one of the songs he LOVES. He is currently learning to play it on the piano.
He really wanted to go to the movie Monday. I didn't want to see Pirates so he said he would go alone. So, I caved in and went with him.
And guess what? I really enjoyed it. The 3-D version was grainy and I would have liked to have seen it in the regular movie. But, I did like the effects of being "in" the movie too. So that was a toss up.
I think the best part is that Will Tanner and Elizabeth Swann characters weren't in this movie. New characters.
I really loved the mermaids and this gentleman that was a preacher. This was a fun part of the movie. Makes me want to watch Splash.
Although these mermaids were pretty scary too. They would give nightmares to little kids. I don't think Pirates movies are kid friendly anyway. Leave those little ones at home.
I seriously loved Penelope Cruz as Angelica in the movie. I liked her much more then Elizabeth Swann. I thought Johnny Depp was better in this movie too - a little more likable.
Overall, I liked this movie and was glad I saw it.
