Pirates, Mermaids and Zombies OH MY!

Top 10 Reasons to see (rent) Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

If Johnny Depp is in a movie, I will go. As far as I'm concerned he is all that and a bag of chips. With all the talk of zombies, mermaids and Black Beard, I was excited to see the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. While there were a lot of great scenes, the mermaid one was especially creepy, overall I was disappointed. It seemed the script was written around Jack Sparrow’s character and his crazy antics instead of being about an actual plot, if that makes sense.

It is definitely worth a rental in my opinion, and I can give you 10 reasons to watch On Stranger Tides

10.”Savvy?” I just love it when Jack says this.

9. Sexy dark-haired Spaniard in a fluffy shirt.

8. Voodoo. There are only two zombies, but a Jack Sparrow voodoo doll? Sign me up!

7. Not your mother’s mermaids! These b****es have teeth!

6. Lying by telling the truth!

5. Black Beard!

4. Ship in a bottle.

3. Peg leg with benefits.

2. The monkey!

1. Transformers trailer! Optimus Prime ROCKS!

3 Sheep, savvy?

  1. I completely get what you mean about the script feeling like it was written "around" Jack Sparrow. It was more like a long tv episode. Stuff happens, but it's not some grand, epic story. it's a plain episode.

    The mermaid scene was my fave. Scared the bejeesiz out of me!

  2. A monkey and a peg leg has me SOLD!

  3. heehee, I just realized there is no #6!

    #6 - Lying by telling the Truth!

  4. The phrase,"Peg leg with benefits" has me too curious to not see it. Is this the last one they're making?

  5. I loved the mermaids... and the one they captured, the French actress, was exceptionally good and very pretty. I wish the 15 second end trailer was about her and the priest and not Penelope cruise picking up the little doll.

  6. I enjoyed this one - but I'm a Depp lover, too, so I am easy to please ;) The mermaids ARE creepy but yeah, the mermaid and the priest were very romantic <3 I need to look around and see if there's another one of these coming!

    Oh, and great review, by the way! I love the list, savvy ;)
