Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides

I took advantage of visiting Spencer to see the new Pirates movie.  Frankly, it was a big disappointment.  Jack Sparrow is charming in the original series, but his character is starting to wear on me.  I realize more and more that "Captain" Jack Sparrow is totally self centered and without a shred of morality,.  What was once cute is now annoying.

The movie is visually beautiful.  The story, the search for the fountain of youth is a good backdrop.  My favorite characters were the Spaniards who provide something of  a twist at the end.

Like the Harry Potter series I find the later movies to be less and less appealing.  I doubt I will bother with Pirates #5.  I am sure there will be one.
