Movie Watch: Pirates, At World's End

The Girl and I broke our quarantine briefly on Sunday to see the latest in the Pirates trilogy, At World's End. The series reminds me slightly of The Mummy movies - actioners in an almost old school big Hollywood vein which don't entirely make you feel guilty for watching them. The story isn't exactly Shakespeare, of course, but it lays a good foundation for the rather impressive action scenes and imagery. Don't even try to keep up with the number of betrayals and backstabs - just enjoy the ride and appreciate that the plot mostly comes together without cannonball sized holes in its sails.

In short, if you liked the second you'll probably love the third. It's truly beautiful in more than a few scenes and holds a few twists and turns to keep you entertained.
