Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea-notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.

Scott’s Take

I loved Pirates of the Caribbean. I loved the second half of part 2. I despised parts 3 and 4. I’m sorry but I don’t have much faith in this franchise. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Steve’s Take

I missed the screening, but I am intrigued for some reason.

Baywatch

The story follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon as he butts heads with a brash new recruit. Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.

Scott’s Take

Baywatch is either going to be terrible or funny like 21 Jump Street. There will be no in between.

Steve’s Take

So, I laughed plenty during Baywatch, but this one is being plastered by those other critics. The Rock and Efron killed it in my eyes.

Next Week

Pirates is my pick of the week by default. Next week we have Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants. Have a great weekend everyone.
