Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Last Saturday i got to watch the new pirates movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The movie was nothing special, but it was nice seeing Jack Sparrow back, and without Will and Elizabeth. In my opinion, the Will and Elizabeth storyline should've been done after the first movie and they overstayed their welcome. I liked the first two pirates movies, but the last two have been just meh. The last movie I saw in theaters was Tron: Legacy (which I didn't even want to see) so it was refreshing to go to the movies for the first time in a while. There haven't been many good movies out, and this isn't necessarily a good movie, but I thought it was worth watching just from being a fan of the series.
What would Disney do without Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow?
So yeah, in short the movie is not very good, but entertaining and worth watching nonetheless. The budget for this movie was much less than even for the 3rd one, and right now according to wikipedia the gross revenue is $390,847,774 so its doing pretty damn well. If you're thinking of seeing this movie go ahead and watch, it'll be a pretty entertaining 2 hours.
