This movie soars as it demonstrates the best in humanity which stands up to the worst.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

May 20, 2011
Captain Jack is back in a fun-filled frolicking adventure! This latest installment in the "Pirates" series is non-stop action, and filled with intrigue and cracks from Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). The "captain" had me in stitches a couple of times.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

July 11, 2003
This film is a captivating pirate story but It is certainly too intense for younger children. In fact, although this feature includes a lot of fantasy violence, there is a lot of it and some blood is included as characters cut themselves to bleed to end a curse. In addition, the language just hits [...]
