Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Blu-ray Review

Johnny Depp is HOT.  Johnny Depp doing Keith Richards as a pirate with a swagger and gold teeth... HOTTER!  I could watch Johnny Depp all day... oh, what's that?  We're talking about a movie, not just how hot Johnny Depp is?  My bad!
When the first Pirates of the Caribbean came out, it was a huge blockbuster that scored with millions of viewers.  I watched it, I was impressed.  Then the second one came out.  I watched it, was unimpressed.  Then the third one came out- I didn't bother watching.  BUT, alas, the series has redeemed itself because On Stranger Tides was actually really good!  I found myself interested in the whole thing, not just salivating over Johnny as Captain Jack Sparrow.  (You other ladies can have Orlando Bloom!)

Family Time Factor:  Can actually be enjoyed by all ages, but probably not too appropriate for younger kids.

MOTR Grade: B
