I’ve heard not-so-stellar reviews of the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie. OK, this is Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, not some high-brow bullshit “Oscar award-winning” film. Of course it’s gonna be goofy, in typical Depp-as-Sparrow fashion. I, personally, don’t pay upwards of $10, not counting popcorn and pop, to see some film that will bore me for 2 hours. I want ACTION – SPECIAL EFFECTS – STUFF GOIN ON, not people yakking about some political uprising or genocide or a plummet into despair. We get enough of that shit in every day news. Going to the movies should be a reprieve from the mundane, the sad, the nightly barrage of effed-up news.

So what. It’s not that good. Whatever. Sequels are never as good as the original. Period.
This will be my first Pirates movie to be seen on the big screen. Can’t wait, bad reviews be damned.
A Pirate’s Life For Me. YO-HO!
