Last night I went to the premier of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It was awesome! This is my first full length feature 3D event. It was not what I was expecting.
It was so much better!
The 3D effects make you feel like you are right beside the characters in the movie! Right from the start, I was transported to another time and place, right into the courtroom with “Captain Jack”. From that moment, I was captivated. This is a great story with many twists and turns. Johnny Dep delivered the “Captain Jack” we know and love from the other movies. Believe it or not, he is even easier to love in this latest movie, since he lets you see a new side of him. It is a great mix of fantasy and adventure that sweeps you away while you watch. The 3D was the most amazing in the scenes with the Mermaids. It was like you were underwater swimming with them! While watching this movie you will feel as though you are actually on the sea, on islands, in the city and everywhere else the cast goes in the course of the story. The special effects were amazing, especially the view from the cliff where you lose your stomach when looking down. There were a few laughs and I jumped in my seat a couple of times. When the movie was over, we had headaches from watching in 3D. Maybe it was because we both wear glasses. Regardless, I will be going to another 3D movie and will be telling all of my friends and family that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is a “must see”, “you don’t want to miss this movie”, movie.
Pirates of the Caribbean opens in theaters everywhere Friday, May 20th. Purchase your movie tickets today!

McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
