Movie Review Flashback: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ Is Fun, Fun, Fun!

How do you base a movie off of an amusement park ride and get away with it? I don’t know how Walt Disney did it but they did it and I thank them for it.

A few years ago I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl for the first time and was utterly shocked at how great the film was. For years, I had heard about the movie and I knew about Jack Sparrow but it wasn’t until I watched the movie that I understood why these movies were so famous.

There are really good films that are full of depth and complexity like Joker or Blue Jasmine and while The Curse of the Black Pearl is nothing like that it is a pure joy to watch. It’s as if Disney bottled up the happiness a day at their parks can be and poured it all over this project, delivering an experience that is unforgettable.

The music is perfection, the action is riveting and exceptionally choreographed, the cast, namely Johnny Depp as the ever-lovable Jack Sparrow, is fantastic, and by the conclusion, I am filled with a boundless joy that not a lot of films can provide me.

If you’ve never been interested in giving the Pirates of the Caribbean films a look please do. They are F-U-N. FUN!!!!

I watched it again for only the third time last night and boy was it an enjoyable experience…as you can probably tell.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Could We See A Trailer for ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ During the Super Bowl?

We’re less than two weeks away from the Super Bowl and that’s exciting for me.

Super Bowl commercials are some of my favorite things to see all year and among Super Bowl commercials are exciting new trailers of highly-anticipated movies. Now, of course, this year is a bit different than the average year.
