Pirates of Hollywood: The Curse of the Bad Sequel

Last Sunday my wife and I watched Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End in a local cinema. And like Spider-Man 3 the movie didn’t impress me very much. A confused story, inconsistencies, superfluous subplots and missing scenes spoiled the party. And while the second part at least contained a lot of slapstick the third part was dark and depressing. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was a really good movie but its sequels fall short of it unfortunately. A friend of mine even wondered whether the scripts were written by the same people who came up with the sequels of Highlander. 🙂

At the end of the year big film-studios will probably once again complain about the box-office results and blame it on movie piracy. But it will of course not occur to them that people don’t like bad sequels or the hundredth bad copy of Finding Nemo.
