MovieBob: Things To Do Instead of Pirates

MovieBob writes:
The big new movie this week, Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, is terrible....
So, I thought it would be worthwhile to assemble a rundown of some other things (and not just other movies!) you could be doing instead of enabling Johnny Depp's bad behavior.

Escapist is kinda known for being harsh...but being harsh on Pirates then loving Thor...doesn't really make sense to me. I love both.

Crazay4511d ago

I thought Thor was a great movie and am looking forward to watching Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides

Soldierone4511d ago

Im not bashing Thor by any means. However both were action flicks and both did similar things. Both had surprisingly strong stories and good camera work.

You would think if you hated Pirates this much you would had Thor too....

Both were great! I'm happy to say that I think I would've enjoyed Pirates even if I wasn't a big Johnny Depp fan. It was a fun movie with lots of fun and action.

Thor was a good and different type hero movie because it came from mythology....I used to love mythology when I was a kid. Both movies stand on their own.

I don't think a lot of these movies were that bad. I liked at least half of them so maybe that's why they made so much money because the public just doesn't go with the critics most of the time.

I liked spiderman 3. I didn't understand why everyone jumped on the hate bandwagon.

alycakes3973d ago

I guess that's why I'm glad I can have my own opinion. Most of the time I like movies other people really don't like as much as I do.

most of the films that were cited were sequels, they made a lot of money because its previous film was great commercially and critically thats why fans invested money to see if that particular sequel can stand up with the movie they loved. i dont think this are the 20 worst films successful, it was just sequels that notched down. i liked some movies in there like matrix 3, x men origins, stranger tides, borat, godfather 3 and spiderman 3 well the rest kindda sucked

After the first 5 or 6 the list started to surprise me a little. I kind of knew some of them were going to be on there but not in that order.
