Let's Review a Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)

Well Dead Man’s Chest wasn’t an improved sequel, but I’ll argue that this one was, to Dead Man’s Chest anyway. In fact with the fourth movie on the way, and depending on how long this franchise goes on it may start a reverse Star Trek trend, where the odd numbers are great and the even numbers suck.

Let's Review a Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)

Well The Curse of the Black Pearl was a run away success and thus the Disney studio sees nothing but dollars signs and the ability to build a brand. The command comes down: make more movies! Well there have certainly been worse sequels put out than this.

Let's Review a Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Well this film is certainly an interesting one for me. This really was a movie I thought was doomed right out of the gate. A feature film based off a theme park ride, an awesome theme park ride; my personal favourite in fact, but a theme park ride? They are totally scraping the bottom of the creativity barrel. I went to see this thing fully prepared to laugh at every horrible moment I was sure was going to fill the silver screen; and to my immense surprise what I got instead was a movie that kicks the undead’s butt.
