Pirates of the Caribbean was so scary I could hardly watch! Orlando Bloom and Keira were amazing, I see myself as her.

Pirates of the Caribbean series is wonderful for nearly 13 hours of binge watching (much more if one cares to check out the bonus features.)
The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) 2h 23m ★★★★½
Dead Man's Chest (2006) 2h 31m - ★★★★
At World's End (2007) 2h 49m - ★★★★
Two more add-ons are:
On Stranger Tides (2011) 2h 17m - ★★★★
Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) 2h 33m

Earlier comment on Oct 26, 2017:

Pleasantly surprised to finally learn of the boy pirate who came to become “Jack de Sparrow.” With expanded pirate mythologies, the film was surprisingly easy to follow. The trio of new characters (Salazar, Carina and Henry) were welcome fresh faces with cameos of love birds Turner and Swann near the end (plus one more in the final minute of the movie after credit rolls – So look for it as hint that the franchise has not ended yet.) Highly entertaining with great actions, interesting CGI designs, the usual humor and introduction of the next generation pirates.

Funny, great effects (except the computerized young version of Johnny Depp)...and also a definitive end to a bloated series.

Witty dialogue, a fun adventure and a sinister and creepy villain, coupled with character revelations; a Pirate film that is as hilarious as it is at times emotional.

Johnny Depp is always great to watch.

I very much enjoyed watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. I appreciated the tie-in with the first three films, along with some of the new characters introduced. Henry Turner, the young boy who is travelling alongside Jack Sparrow, is very likeable and easy to connect to. Furthermore, the plot was full of fast-paced action, and the special effects were amazing. The storyline was deeply developed and executed impeccably, and the acting was very good. As usual, there was humor incorporated, which made the movie go by very quickly. My favourite film of the franchise is still the first; however, this movie is definitely up there! I would highly recommend that anyone add this film to their shelf! 4/5

1.5/5 stars. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a 2017 American swashbuckler film, the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and the sequel. It is considered to be one of the most expensive films to produce ever, costing an estimated $320 million. This movie is all over the place. The franchise has simply been exhausted, with each subsequent film becoming increasingly worse. It starts off rather interesting with a (visually at least) compelling main villain, but the movie falls apart soon afterward. The characters are thinly developed. Disney introduces us to young new faces in an attempt to breath new life into the dying franchise for years to come. They fail miserably, as I could not empathize with any character that I hadn't already seen in the first two movies. Jonny Depp’s role as Jack Sparrow has been completely worn out, and I pled with Disney not to make any further films to ruin the once beloved character any further. Like any film with the budget, the visual effects are great and the film looks fine. If all you care about is eye-pleasing, mindlessly entertaining movies, go right ahead and watch this one, but I would not recommend it if what you seek is a good film.

Well DISNEY DESTROY'S Another Great Franchise with there usual PC/AGENDA DRIVEN DRIVEL! Storyline Nonexistant completly stupid, Acting Same most of them ACTED like they didnt want to be there but hey its a PAYCHECK. JOHNNY (Wife Beater) DEPP Drunker then usual, Where was the OUTRAGE on HIM? HMM? Like all the other supposed Star abusers! Anyway such a VERY SAD way for PIRATES to end Expected more should have learned from STAR WARS (Aka STAR JOKE!) :(

I'll be honest, I've seen the other four movies, so I didn't expect much from this 5th installment. What I didn't want or expect was that they went "Star Wars Episode 7" on me. That's one of the worst sins of all cinema history. They literally sold out, re-booked the first movie by adding two characters and had Johnny Depp be his usual self. Still, seeing Depp in the guillotine scene was probably worth an entire star by itself for the absolute absurdity of it all.

Of course, it should be said it's a Disney film and it's mainly for kids though certainly the hint that he had sex with the mayor's wife was a little racy even for this film. Still, I pray in future installments they don't sell out. I mean, this was a "let's re-boot a film and get the profit." Perhaps with a little money, they'll have real writers for the next film, which will involve at least 3 of these characters.

I felt that this movie really brought a satisfying conclusion to the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film series. Suspenseful, funny, and heartwarming. I liked the new characters/actors. Johnny Depp is always great to watch.

Amazingly, surprisingly adequate.
