Pirates 5 ... Meh (Spoiler Alert)


By Corey Floyd

Last week I sat down and watched the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film: Dead men tell no tales.  After the last movie was just plain boring I have been on the fence about this one. What kept my attention was the movies antagonist Captain Salazar played by Javier Bardem( No Country for old men & Skyfall).

Know he plays a ghost with a very big chip on his shoulder. He after Jack for killing him years ago. Know Jack could avoid him by just staying on land cause ghost can only return to land once every ten years. If you remember the rules from the original Trilogy. Of course, there's a catch if he finds the Triton of the ocean he can go anywhere. Of course, Johnny Depp has returned as Captain Jack Sparrow. Nothing new to his character at all.  You also meet Henry Turner Will & Elizabeth’s, son. They also have a cameo in the movie. Which is nice. Oh yeah, Barbosa is in the movie too. I apologize to you guys cause I wasn’t feeling it. It is an improvement from the last one but I don't care enough about any of the characters except for Barbossa.
  
Even then at the end of the movie he dies. Oops!! Well, I did say spoiler alert. Plus you find out he has a daughter who just happens to be on this adventure with them the whole time.This movie just didn’t do anything for me. In my opinion, they should have just left it at three. They told several complete stories, you saw great character arcs and Barbossa and Davey Jones are far better antagonists than Salazar and Blackbeard. Plus the Visual effects were just okay.

Davey Jones was way more intimidating and actually had some depth in comparison to Salazar plus his look is iconic in my eyes they took every nasty about the bottom of the ocean and put it in on being.
Lets keep it real look at this and tell me Jones wasn’t the better bad guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp1rS_UAvjs . Sorry this was a Bad movie I get it we love Johnny Depp. The man gave us gold for years and Never got a Oscar for it so now he is just hamming it up hardcore now. But maybe I should look at the writers too. One writer Terry Rossio has been credited in all 5 movies but it's mainly for character creation and the screenplay was written by Jeff Nathanson. Who has not been on any good films besides Catch Me If You Can. The other films were quite sketchy as well such as , Indiana Jones Crystal SKULL, Speed 2 , Rush Hour 3 , and The Tower Heist. Sadly he has already been hired to write the next POTC movie so get ready for more of the same. Not me tho this is getting a F from me. Save your money watch Wonder Woman and if you don’t see  I will review it Thursday. Meanwhile POTC: Dead men tell no tales was DOA.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
