Monday Morning Talkback: Let's Hear About Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Yo ho ho and a bottle of shrug? Despite massive worldwide grosses, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opened with "just" $90 million at the box office in North America over the weekend. Though while that pales in comparison to the previous Pirates films, it accounts for the largest opening weekend of 2011 thus far. Translation: you saw it, so let's talk On Stranger Tides.
Topics up for discussion, among many others.
· Did you actually enjoy On Stranger Tides, or was it a tiresome exercise in blockbuster excess?
· Did Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz have adequate chemistry together?
· Was the rebooted feel -- i.e.; no Orlando Bloom or Keira Knightley -- off-putting?
· How did series newcomers Ian McShane and Sam Claflin acquit themselves in On Stranger Tides?
· Was the steady hand of Gore Verbinski missed or did Rob Marshall prove he has what it takes to handle future tentpoles?
· Would you have any interest in seeing Pirates 5?
