I'm fine with movies with pirates, but please end this convoluted absurd franchise already, it has overstayed its welcome since the third movie.

And I'm so damn done with Captain Jack Sparrow. He is just a cartoon at this point, not a real character.

This ended the franchise well. Let it end with Dead Men Tell No Tales

We don't "need" ANY movies at all. Many people want them though.

@s7eventhheaven: Hate Schumer and Sandler, not interested in drivel like Transformers and Fast and Furious, but all the Pirates movies have entertained me.

The first one should have been a standalone.

The more films they made,the more dumber Jack gets.I don't like it at all.

Probably didn't "need" it, but I enjoyed it. Don't know why all the hate really. I thought it was fun, didn't take itself too seriously, more so as needed, and all the characters seemed right this time. Blackbeard wasn't convincing at all. Also a suitable ending to my favorite character in the series.

We haven't needed the last 4...

It ended at three, as far as I'm concerned. There's not much to really add to the story. And does it bother anyone that Jack is fighting undead yet again?

Did Lucy really just compare the horrible C-actor who got a break through Parks and Recreation a C soap series. to Johnny Deep. If anything at least compare two actors who have the same talent.

That alone makes her opinion moot.

But as to the movie, as long as there is profit then why not make another, after all we get new Transformers and a second 50 Craps of grey. and yet another "hunger games" Maze Runner trilogy (which turns into 4 since the last have to be 2 parts.).

But as mention what a stupid question, money rules and as long as there is money in it Hollywood would make a movie about painting a wall and watching it dry.

What a stupid article. Movies are not need based. It's a business to meet our entertainment cravings. Nothing else. As long as people watch the series there will be more PotC movies.

The answer to this question is no after the very first one.

Sure, if they get someone better to write the script. Whoever wrote the script for Dead Men Tell No Tales should be sent to the gallows. Worst Pirates movie to date, with a very forgettable story. The very end of the film was awesome...And that's it.

Worst movie to close out Pirates. Disney needs a serious redo.

Enjoyed the movie with my family. Wouldn't mind another Pirates movie. So YES!

Do we really need a new Assassins Creed? CoD? A new Far Cry that rehashes the same concept over and over?

Dont know, but im sure as hell that it's not a matter of "need", for it's just a matter of "wanting". We have new superhero movies everyday..your point?

@G-Corleone: It's not a fair comparison as games can rely entirely on gameplay with a crap story. Even those games you listed have had more good ones than bad. If your opposed to sequels in video games then you need a different hobby.

It does not matter what we need. Johny Depp needs his money to pay off debts.

@gns: johny debt?

Avatar image for angel9ramos7

Clickbait. It's a Disney action/comedy based on a RIDE.

Avatar image for spider_matt1987

Disney now own LucasArts, so why not give us a "Monkey Island" Movie?

@DARREN636: Yikes. 3 of those 4 movies are actually pretty solid films.

Avatar image for DantheMan9856

@DARREN636: batman and robin. okay? chill!

Avatar image for Slinqy

@DARREN636: Woah, woah. The Mummy with Brendan Fraser was one of the worst movies you've seen?

Avatar image for DARREN636


at the cinema, yes

I walked out half way through.

Avatar image for Slinqy

@DARREN636: I'm surprised. I thought it was quite good at the time; not perfect, but still. I'm guessing you were probably looking for a direct call-back to the original? I thought the acting was solid. You had charisma, a good setting, a nice score, and action mixed with comedy & romance. What's not to like?

Avatar image for joeshock

@DARREN636: Sounds like you've been pretty lucky if those are the worst movies you've seen. I saw Battlefield Earth!

@DARREN636: You think batman forever is worse than Batman and Robin?

Avatar image for DARREN636


oh lordy

I've managed to erase batman and robin from memory,

A small island and a pistol with one bullet.
