"PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST" (2006) Review

Not long ago, I had watched the second movie in the "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" franchise for the umpteenth time, namely "DEAD MAN'S CHEST". First of all, I would like to say that originally, I had not been that keen on the idea of a sequel or two to "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: Curse of the Black Pearl". Read more... )

"PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES" (2011) Review

When the Walt Disney Studios and producer Jerry Bruckheimer had first released news of their intention to make sequels to their 2003 hit movie, "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL", I reacted to the news with a great deal of wariness. In fact, I was against the idea. But after seeing 2006's "DEAD MAN'S CHEST" and 2007's "AT WORLD'S END", my opinion had changed. I ended up enjoying the two movies just as much as I had enjoyed "CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL" . . . especially the second film. Read more... )

"THE LONE RANGER" (2013) Review

My memories of the 1950s television series, "THE LONE RANGER", is a bit sketchy. Actually, it is downright vague. I can recall Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels in their costumes - the latter wearing a mask. I can recall Moore bellowing "Hi ho Silver!" every once in a while. And I do recall that the series was shot in black-and-white. I have no memories of a particular episode or storyline. I never invested any genuine interest in the series during my childhood.

Nearly ten years ago, "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL" had burst upon the movie screens and to the surprise of many, became a major hit. Even more surprising, the movie ended up spawning a wildly successful movie franchise within another eight years and also a new cinematic icon for the 21st century – Captain Jack Sparrow.

"PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END" (2007) Review

When I first saw the trailer for the third installment of the "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" franchise five years ago, I thought I was in for an overblown and possibly dull movie. Quite frankly, the trailer did not impress me very much. And then word came out once the movie was released around May 24-25, 2007 that the movie was either confusing or not as good as the first two. I approached "AT WORLD’S END" with very low expectations. Thankfully, my expectations proved to be wrong. Read more... )
