  1. On stranger tides:

    Missing the original potc soul..in it..

    I liked all the three previous potc movies.
    I am die hard fan of captain Jack sparrow.
    I like all the characters from the three potc movies.

    comparison between the previous 3 potc movies and the 4th movie.
    I like to quote elements missing from the potc4 movie here:

    i. Action sequences:

    There is no charm in the action sequences.
    Neither a worth watching sword fight nor a sea battle.
    Instead, the action sequences are filmed under darkness
    which are least interesting.

    ii. Characterization:

    Missing interesting crew characters..
    Missing pintel, raggeti, cotton, the short fellow
    no alternate replacement for the place left blank by tia dalma.
    Thereby, the delightful environment on the deck is missing.
    Where are interesting crew gatherings on board..and crew discussions.
    There is no replacement for the negative/opposite characters such as
    James norrington, Lord Becket and Davy Jones who used to hold
    the fort at one end by themselves.
    Right from Ana Maria to bad faced Lynch, there was strong
    characterization in the first potc movies.
    Where are characters like those on ship?

    iii. Missing Will and Elizabeth.. no substantial replacement..
    Philip’s and sirena’s characters lack intensity and fail to match
    Will and Elizabeth and hence another pole is missing thereby
    the movie becoming unipolar weighing the burdon solely upon
    shoulders of Captain Jack sparrow.

    iv. Complexity of script.. which was the ultimate characteristics of
    all the first 3 movies..
    Mind is busy when you watch those movies all the way thinking on
    who is on which side.. and whos interests are clashing with whose.
    Characters shifting sides with the shift in their interests.
    For example, Jack is seen sometimes supporting will and Elizabeth
    against Barbossa and sometimes he is engaged in a sword fight
    with Will and Norrington depending on the situation.

    On the other hand, you can watch POTC4 while keeping your
    brains in the refrigerator.

    v. Pirates Culture
    No Tortuga, No Port Royale, No Shipreckov..No Pirates’ gathering..

    vi. No Dealings..Parleys..
    No meetings on islands.. no interesting deals..
    thereby no usage of Jack’s cunny mind and methods..

    (Still liked POTC4 just because of captain Jack Sparrow.)

    Conclusion: Missing u Mr. Gore Verbenski
    Mr. Marshall has to be sent back home.. and
    Mr. Verbenski should be recalled to direct the film.

    • What are you on about!!!? (No offence or anything)- I thought the last one was FUNNY, ENTERTAINING AND DEFINATLY THE BEST OF ALL POTC MOVIES!!!! lol

  2. I loveeddd Philip and Syrena together!! But I dont understand what happened to them at the end- can anyone help? I mean, I’ve heard loads of different endings and all that I dont know which one is true! Some people say he turned into a mermaid, some people say Syrena’s kissed saved him but it all depends on what you saw of the movie! Anyway, I rate this a MASSIVE, WHOPPING 5 STARS because this was FABBBBBITY FABB FABB!! lol Soo…if you can help me in answering my question- tah. Savi?

  3. I enjoyed the film thought it was the best one since the original back in 03. Have a question though did anyone besides me find the spiritual side of the film, at least having to do with redemption and Philips character what little of it there was interesting?
