GIVEN THAT the THREE PREVIOUS PIRATES MOVIES (WHICH BETWEEN 'EM MADE BIG BOOTY) GOT PROGRESSIVELY WORSE-and-WORSE (with the 3rd ONE BEING ONE of the MOST INCOHERENT, NAUSEA-INDUCING MOVIES of RECENT TIMES -- and a RAZZIE® NOMINEE) THERE's at LEAST the LIKELIHOOD THAT PIRATES of the CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES COULD BE ONE of OUR CONTENDERS, AS WELL as BEING ONE of 2011's BIGGEST BOX OFFICE HITs

YES, JOHNNY DEPP IS BACK as JACK SPARROW (a ROLE for WHICH HE WAS OSCAR®-NOMINATED the FIRST TIME OUT). AND, YES, THEY HAVE JETTISONED ORLANDO BLOOM and KEIRA KNIGHTLY as the OBNOXIOUS "LOVE INTERESTS" THIS TIME OUT. BUT the BASIC PREMISE HERE (THAT HOARY OLD ADVENTURE MOVIE STANDBY "THE SEARCH for the FOUNTAIN of YOUTH") IS TIRED and FORMULAIC. AND the BERRY IDEA THAT THEY'RE TAKING THIS FRANCHISE to a 4th INSTALLMENT -- WITH NO MOTIVE OTHER THAN MILKING BUX from MOVIE-GOERS -- SPEAKS to WHAT the RAZZIES® ARE SUPPOSED to BE ALL ABOUT. 

EVEN IF THIS ONE IZ ONLY ASPIRING to BE MINDLESS POPCORN MOVIE FUN, WE THINK IT's HIGH TIME THEY HUNG UP THEIR BUCKLE, RATHER THAN ATTEMPTING to SWASH IT IN PUBLIC EVERY FEW YEARS. 

IF YOU AGREE (OR DIS-AGREE) HERE's the LINK to JOIN WHAT's ALREADY a LIVELY DISCUSSION...




SO WAS THIS a RED CARPET PHOTO OP at CANNES...
OR a FIRING SQUAD?!?!?
