Are You Screening? Podcast #214 – Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has taken us on a long and winding road since 2003, and the previous installment gave us little to celebrate. Dead Men Tell No Tales isn’t as bad, or confused, as that one, but it doesn’t pay enough attention to the story and fun involved to get us back to the level of the first two either.

Johnny Depp is still fun to watch, but the life has mostly been drained out of the series. Luckily, this one still manages to be fairly entertaining.
