Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Review

With the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, I’ve decided to review the film that kicked off this billion dollar series. The story, full of sword-clashing, swashbuckling pirates, takes place near the Caribbean Sea, in a city called Port Royal. There we meet the charming and absurd pirate named Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp), who is down on … Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Review

Upon release, critics didn’t quite like Fear and Loathing, … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them stars Eddie Redmayne as … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review

Even to the point where I cannot remember laughing once throughout the whole film. The story takes place three years after the events of the first film, as Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is returning from a voyage at sea, only to find out her … Continue reading Alice: Through the Looking Glass Review
