Pirates of the Caribbean
The movie I will be talking about is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Pirates of Caribbean is an PG-13 2017 – Fantasy/Action movie. On my own opinion, I think its one of the best fantasy movies that I have been watching since I was thirteen years old. The Pirates of the Caribbean has five movies, but I like pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It may have been one of the last movies, but it was something more different and unexpected movie. Pirates of the Caribbean is about “Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.” Captain Salazar is one of the deadly ghosts that escape the devil triangle with his ghost crew and they are taking over the sea just to search for jack sparrow, arch-rival and author of all his pain. Jack is approached by a boy who needs to locate the Trident of Poseidon, something he believes only Sparrow can help him find. an astronomer and horologist join the team to help them find something she believes her father had always wanted her to find, Carina Smyth. The only hope to survive this adventure is to collect the legendary Trident of Poseidon. Pirates of the Caribbean has couple of movies that are similar to it, but to me I kind of see Moana similar to the movie. The movie of Moana is base revolves around a girl who lives on the Polynesian island of Motunui. She sets on an adventurous, daring mission to save her people, who worship the goddess Te Fiti, who brought life to the ocean, using a pounamu stone as her heart and the source of her power. she meets a demigod Maui, who guides her in her mission. Pirates if the Caribbean had couple of awards, Movie Guide Awards 2018 Nominee Best Film for Mature Audiences, Best Film and World Stunt Awards 2018 Winner Taurus World Stunt Award.
The reason why the movie means something to me are because the actors, the setting, the type of movie it is, and the setting of the movie. That’s why I like all five movies of Pirates of the Caribbean, film serious. The first reason why I like the movie because of the actor/character Johnny Depp who is known as Jack Sparrow in the movie. Captain Jack Sparrow is the captain of seven seas and captain of the Black pearl (ship). He is known as one of lack of respect of person that does not generally taken seriously. Also, A captain of equally dubious morality and sobriety, a master of self-promotion and self-interest, he ?ghts a constant and losing battle with his own best tendencies. In his movies he has a way of entrance in every movie, he is never himself. From one of the movies he entered when his boat was sinking, and he was all the way on the top of the boat when his boat was completely down and just got of it and left it sink. Also, in another movie he pretended to be one of the judges because one of his friends was going to be sent to jail or to death. the village people thought it was jack sparrow, so they wanted him dead. So, him as a “judge” said to release him and went to the actual judge that was locked up in the closet and said “thank you” with a smile. Like I said, Johnny Depp is my top favorite actor, not just because he is in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean but the way he can act. I have noticed his acting are more in fantasy movies, and those movies are the best to my opinion. Comedy is one of the strongest acting for him, that I think. Like saying in the movies that I have seen, like for saying Pirate of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, and Dark Shadows he is an actor as a funny and fantasy(creature) person. To me it amazes me, what type of actor he can act and those type of movies I would definitely see. But the actor or character was not only what I liked about the movie, was also the setting to the movie.

The setting to the movie is dark and old times. The setting mostly takes in the sea because they are dealing with sea ghosts. There is a lot of sound affects in the movie. But also, a lot of like green screen to the movie because parts of the movie take under water and sea creatures coming to life. I think it is cool though when they actually take most of the scene to an actual beach or sea area. Make the stunts look more real then other movies just making them jump on a big pillow. But looking at the behind the seance of the movie, is crazy how much of a difference the movie is then when you see them acting it out. I can tell there is a lot of props being use in the movie and affects to it. Because like for saying when you see the Captain Salazar (sea ghost), in the movie you kind of see him as a ghost with things floating around him. When you the behind the scene, all you see is his character face and him just acting out, like a regular person. I personally think the setting and the way they set up the movie was really good, but not just that I found interest in the movie. It was also the plot to it.
The plot to the movie was amazing, the movie had he shocked and like of the edge of my chair. I did not want to miss any parts of the movie. Most of the movie scene was very funny and surprising. There was a lot of shocking things, like saying when they just met some random girl who was a scientist who ended up being one of the pirate’s crew (Barbosa). She was a village girl, and the villagers hated the pirates and want them all dead or slaves. And they brought up two of the old pirate crew, Will and Elizabeth, they were not in the last movie of pirate of the Caribbean, but they brought them back. That was at the end, when it got me question, will there be a next movie? Why they came back? But mostly what surprised me the most was, at the end of the credits, they showed will and Elizabeth sleeping and a shadow of one of the sea creatures that was dead in the previous movie. Then it went black, so that had me thinking, there must be a next one for sure.
In conclusion, the movie always had me excited every time they come up with a new movie. Seeing how my favorite actor has something in common in his previous movies with this one, is almost similar to being something that does not exist. But he is one funny and serious actor. I see the movie had a lot of setting to it and seeing the behind the scenes is a big difference to the movie we watch. All I hope that there will be a next movie to it and I will definitely watch at the movies, the when it comes out.
