Had I seen it before: No! We have officially reached uncharted waters with the PotC franchise. I always got the impression that On Stranger Tides was where they officially crossed the line from storytelling into money grubbing and thus I lost interest.
What IMDb says: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a movie starring Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, and Ian McShane. Jack Sparrow and Barbossa embark on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it too.
Had I seen it before: Yes, but it was probably around 10 years ago and I hadn’t done my proper research by watching the first two movies shortly before watching this one. So this felt like the first watch.
What IMDb says: Captain Barbossa, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann must sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, find Jack Sparrow, and make their final alliances for one last decisive battle.
