Sunday Matinee: On Stranger Tides
Yesterday my husband and I went to see this movie.
We both loved it and thought it was on par with the first movie - and much better that the second and third movies. We were happy to see so many old characters: Gibbs and Barbossa.
I missed the two guys always fighting and one had a fake eye.
I liked Penelope Cruz. I can't believe she filmed the movie while pregnant. I loved her opening scene - very clever and very funny.
The scenery was beautiful - just stunning.
The dialogue funny and snappy
And there's always a woman involved...
After the movie, while talking about our favorite parts:
Mine: the escape scene with the King
His: Jack and Gibbs scenes together:
Other parts I liked: the mermaid Serena
Blackbeard: he was really cool - not a nice guy obviously
All in all, I'm eager to see the next movies in the franchise.
He mentioned that he thought it was a prequel to the first movies. I thought it came after. He said that nothing from the new movie had any mention of the other movies.
I thought the map that burned was the same map from the last movie.
Anyone know which is true? Prequel or after?
