Captain Jack Sparrow Returns on Blu-Ray in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

DAPs Magic Disney News – by Mr. DAPs 

Captain Jack Sparrow is back for adventure and this time he is on a quest for the Fountain of Youth. As he sails for the fountain he finds himself pitted against mermaids, a former love interest, and the infamous Captain Blackbeard! Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the beginning of a whole new adventure for Captain Jack, with a few familiar faces joining him.
Picture and Sound:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides looked and sounded absolutely amazing and was really an adventure to watch! This really made me appreciate the quality of the Blu-Ray disc. The colors were beautiful (although darker in tones) and the clarity was incredible. There were no cringe moments of “oh, that’s definitely digital.” The sound equaled the quality of the picture. I was immersed in the sound of being on board a ship throughout the flick. Overall, the production value of this movie was great and made for an enjoyable viewing experience.
Bonus Features:

The bonus features on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a little bit of a let down. There really weren’t that many. Things started off with an Audio Commentary with Executive Producer John DeLuca and Director Rob Marshall. This was enjoyable to listen to but definitely not the most in depth commentary I’ve ever listened to. It’s definitely not boring but definitely not a home run either. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean has a few scenes as performed by the LEGO versions of the characters. It’s cute but not something you’d re-watch multiple times. Bloopers of the Caribbean is the obligatory bloopers reel. It was better than most but really; this isn’t a draw for me anymore. Blooper reels are only as good as your love for the actors in them. Lastly, Disney’s Second Screen was included. I think it is absolutely incredible technology and a lot of fun to use. There weren’t any huge meaty offerings with this but I really enjoy it either way! Overall, the bonus features didn’t meet up with the quality standards of the movie in my opinion.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a pleasant return to a story that everyone can follow and enjoy with the Pirates franchise.  I personally liken it to the Indiana Jones movies but with Captain Jack and pirates instead of Indiana Jones and Nazis. It is an enjoyable movie that doesn’t go too many different directions making it easy and fun to watch. If I were to rank my favorite Pirates of the Caribbean movies this would come right after the first one. I’ll give a hat nod to this presentation of the movie simply because the bonus features were a bit on the light side of things. If they were as fun as the movie itself, Pirates 4 would be receiving a hearty hat tip. That being said, if you liked the movie; go out and get it on Blu-Ray! It really is a great way to watch it!
