Friday, May 27, 2011 Film Review of the Week - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

There are ALOT of spoilers in this review, so do not read it if you haven't seen the film.  If you do read it, don't bitch that I spoiled anything...

"Negative—Yes, I know, you all love Johnny Dept, but I’m afraid this movie was not worth the cost at the movie theater. Why? Because it has anti-Christian themes in it, a number of subtle sexual jokes, and suggestive themes. Not to mention the couple of profanities thrown in, as we all know no movie is ready without a few of those. I’ll put my sarcastic tone aside… I thought that it was a good story like the rest, but the themes ruined it for me. ***SPOILER ALERT*** The missionary gives up his faith in god for the pretty mermaid. Jack (and this is to be expected of his character, I suppose) makes it seem “cool” to ditch the girl for his wild life, and leaves her on the island. Also, lots of witchcraft from Mr. Blackbeard (voodoo… etc). ***END SPOILERS***

I didn’t think it was worth it, don’t bring your kids. They should learn to value relationships (in the future when they’re ready) and value faith in God and not in mermaids.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Offensive / Moviemaking quality: none"

***NOTE from Web Bitch - Voodoo is NOT Witchcraft.  Voodoo is a Christian-based religion.  I emailed the site, but I expect not response.  W
