The worst movies I have ever seen.

Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past, and he's not sure if it's love -- or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Terribly written, poorly directed & shoddily performed, the fourth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series is an insipid, pathetic & horribly executed chapter that takes whatever right was left about the original trilogy and brings it to an absolute low for this movie is not only the weakest film of the franchise but also one of the worst films ever made.
A stand-alone sequel to the previous three movies, the story of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides finds Captain Jack Sparrow embarking on a new journey to find the fabled Fountain of Youth but on his way comes across a woman from his past who's the daughter of the feared pirate, Blackbeard, and discovers that they are also…
I see people rating this over Verbinski's sequels. A lot.
Granted, Penélope Cruz is more gorgeous to see than Keira an infinite number of times. They took Orlando Bloom out of the context and made Depp and Rush come back again. Still, somehow, the film manages to be a total bore, saved for some old-Hollywood-style swashbuckling action more predominant than the previous multimillionaire and intense PG-13 CGIed action shown in the previous installments and Jack Sparrow's character, who still remains an unequalled irreverent character thanks to Depp's unique (and bizarre) acting talents. Moreover, lack of unpopular characters has never made an entire movie better.
This entry now makes Rob Marshall an official entry into my "Most Boring Directors Working Today" book (yes, that includes that particularly overrated musical of 2002, so I apologize for the fans).
I love it when Penélope Cruz curses in Spanish.
So I bought this car. It was pretty flash back in 2003, fast and fun to drive. It took some unexpected corners and was a surprising thrillful ride that I really enjoyed.
After a few years I got the new model thinking it would give me the same buzz, but it didn't. It felt overcomplicated, like the designers had too many ideas and had crammed in too much cleverness into what should be a simple concept car, getting me from A to B with the minimum fuss but with a lot of excitement. And when the 3series model came out, the designers were clearly prescribing to me their version of fun, which seemed to involve a lot of peripherals which…
the last one, bloated and utterly indecipherable though it may have been, was directed by Gore Verbinski, so it also had a pirate ship blown literally to splinters in ultra slow motion and a sword fight between Sparrow and a squid-man on the mast of a ship spiraling into a whirlpool in the middle of a naval battle in the middle of a hurricane as the camera flew around it in circles. this has Rob Marshall's rote coverage and the swelling tones of Hans Zimmer accompanying Sparrow pulling a heavy rope or standing on the roof of a moving carriage. it looks like that old Nickelodeon game show "Legends of the Hidden Temple". i'm not even sure the characters in this actually know or care what they're doing.
When I first saw this film back in 2011 I was more than a little disappointed. We had no Keira, no Orlando, and no Gore Verbinski. The fact that they threw Penelope Cruz into the mix did excite me and with mermaids and the Fountain Of Youth as the new object of everyone's desire, this should have been another fun filled adventure. So what went wrong?
At World's End had felt bloated amid all the CGI as Disney attempted yet again to empty every parents pockets. Some of it worked, a lot of it didn't. Rob Marshall's film however struggles from the very start. The script which always gave Johnny Depp the chance to shine, was pedestrian and lacking in…
I didn't think it would be possible to make a film as tedious as the last Pirates of the Caribbean but new director Rob Marshall has managed it. I guess it shouldn't have come as too much of a shock seeing as Marshall hasn't managed to make a decent film yet but I was at least hoping the absence of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley would have improved things. Sadly, On Stranger Tides still suffers from the same problems, namely a bloated and uninteresting story, too much Jack Sparrow and supporting characters not up to the job. Even though the film starts with a flurry of activity it still can't help but be terminally dull. The action has little consequence…

Film #29/Task #20: "A fourquel"
If you liked the first three PotC movies, but didn't care for all of those pesky Will and Elizabeth scenes, don't like character development, and want 100% more Capt. Jack Sparrow nonsense with absolutely no consequences, then this is the movie for you. It's pretty much one long Jack Sparrow solo movie, where Jack, his crew (which is basically just poor Gibbs at this point), and his long-lost ex Angelica must journey to find another mystical something-or-other - this time it's the famous Fountain of Youth - while avoiding the wrath of Blackbeard. Along the way they encounter zombies, mermaids, evil ropes, and... honestly, everything's made up and the plot points don't…
They should have stopped making these films a long time ago.

I think I should watch it again
After the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy made so much money, it was inevitable that Disney would want to extend the franchise. However, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides never escapes coming across as a desperate cash-grab.
Eschewing many of the familiar characters and elements of the series, On Stranger Tides puts the focus squarely on Jack Sparrow, and his journey to discover the Fountain of Youth. While the plot is more straightforward than the last two installments, the script is completely bereft of charm or humour, telling a rudimentary tale that's not worth caring about. Subplots appear and disappear at random, the tone is all over the map, and the numerous contrived action sequences feel weightless.
It benefits from the lack of Orlando Bloom, but also lacks pretty much everything that made At World’s End so entertaining, making Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides undoubtedly the weakest instalment to the series so far. In fact, it doesn’t feel like a continuation of the series so much as a related companion piece. It’s not as dark, the design isn't as good, the characters aren’t as interesting, the special effects aren’t as impressive and it generally lacks a sense of energy, purpose or direction. Sam Claflin may be hotter and far better at acting than Orlando Bloom, but he’s given a whole load of nonsense gibberish to say that makes his presence rather irritating and in general…
the mermaids what the fuck
Solo ligeramente mejor que la primera, porque se libra de una maldita vez de Orlando Bloom y de la otra pelma. Sparrow sigue siendo una caricatura de sí mismo. Por lo menos esta el histriónico Barbossa para compensar un poco. Reconozco que la presencia de los españoles en la peli me agrada. Aunque su participación sea casi un suspiro sin importancia, es agradable ver en este cine comercial a veces se acuerdan que España también tuvo un imperio marítimo. Sobre todo si la acción se desarrolla en el maldito Caribe.
Pero en general la peli sigue adoleciendo de una grave insustancialidad hiriente. Es aburridilla. No es interesante de mirar. No es gran cosa vaya. Mejor que la anterior porque al menos no pretende engañarme tratando de hacerme creer que voy a presenciar LO épico, porque es que no.
