I just came home from seeing Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

It was - okay, I guess. I'm possibly being unfair to it - I might have liked it far better if I'd never seen the first movie, or maybe if I had merely liked The Curse of the Black Pearl, the way audiences are supposed to. If I hadn't been fannish about it.

There were things I liked - Salazar was a surprisingly cheerful villain, the island of stars was quite pretty, and having a character with my name, well - I liked her a bit, though maybe not as much as she might have deserved in a different movie (and I found the constant witch accusations tiresome and not particularly amusing, though I suppose that's what they were meant to be - even in the chronological hodgepodge of the PotC movies (the guillotine would make it late 18th century, yes?) , to have a woman who shows an interest in basic astronomy immediately decried as a witch by every passing stranger? The only part more tiresome was the horologist "joke".)

Cutting for length and a few spoilers )
