I’m not really sure what I can say about the dinner/ movie night that took place from 5-7PM on the Batavia Campus today. So, in order to bring you some sort of information from the night, I decided to review the movie. Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides was shown to the students. It was an excellent movie, as all the Pirates of the Carribean movies were and always will be. However, I found that Penelope Cruz was a little unbelieveable in her role. She played the sword fighting, Jack Sparrow intimidating, Angelica. The chemistry between Johnny Depp and she was a lot less then was expected. Her character was interesting and actually an important part of the story, but I believe the part could have been casted a bit better.
Aside from that, the movie was fantastic. It had a lot of action, sword fighting, rum drinking, and comedy; all of the things that make it a Pirates of the Carribean movie. We still find ourselves falling in love with Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp) through the challenges and the quirky moments. As always, Jack gets himself into various jams and finds creative ways of getting out of them. The one thing that was missing, was an end to end the series. Maybe that indicates a fifth move in the makings? We will have to wait and see!
