I'm hoping for guilty pleasure status. That's basically how I feel about 2 and 3. But the fun characters really keep it afloat (because Jack Sparrow isn't the only fun character).

2 and 3 ARE guilty pleasures. They have enough quirkiness, weirdness and creativity to keep them afloat, despite the extensive subplottiness.

4 was kinda bearable, had a number of memorable scenes.

But 5.... Bardem totally underused and Jack's far from funny... he's become his own caricature.

Hm... sorry to hear that about 5. I'm currently re-watching the previous films. Almost done with At World's End.. They are a lot of fun, like you said, despite very clunky subplots and whatnot. But I think Gore Verbinski is a talented and fun filmmaker, so he really keeps it interesting. I must have fallen asleep in the middle of At World's End when I saw it in the theater, because I didn't remember a lot of the middle parts, haha... the film is a bit too long.

I think it is. I fell asleep during this one. That never happened before in a theater.

4 has a couple of good scenes, like the mermaid scene. But it's a bit of a drag.

5 to me, felt like the first half introducing all these characters from the previous four movies that had to be dragged in there, little storylines being set up... and then the second half is living up to the fulfilment of those set-ups, one by one by one by one...
And then the protagonists (Will's son and the smart girl) weren't all that interesting. Will's son: boring. Smart girl: 'she's smart so she must be a witch', they keep repeating throughout the movie...

Quite... the disappointment.

I felt it was better then the 4th, More on par with 1-3 of the Pirates movies.

I have heard that pirates of the Caribbean- salzar's revenge was the last part of this fantasy series. I would definitely like to see captain jack sparrow back again with a new adventure.

Just saw this. It's... not very good.

Recycled the same formula and it's really very boring. It's hard to say which is better/worse 4 or 5. 4 is okay until the 3rd act and horrible ending. 5 was just formulaic and boring through and through. I didn't even like the effect that they used for the cursed crew this time. It was generic and uninteresting. I'm not a big Javier Bardem fan either. He didn't make a particularly interesting villain for this series of films. Bill Nighy was the best. It needed more sea creatures and imagination. The star thing was sort of neat, though.

I got a couple chuckles here and there, though. But not much. Much of the writing was just horrible puns.

It's a very dull note to end this series of films on. thumb down thumb down
