Review: Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (2017)

Yo ho ho and a bottle of more of the same.

by Benjamín Harguindey

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise continues its drunken waddle through the same stale shallows it’s been routinely charting since its inception with 2003’s Curse of the Black Pearl.

by Iñaki Oñate

With a look of suspicion my goth girlfriend asked me: why do you wanna go see The Beauty and The Beast (2017)? You don’t seem like the type of person that enjoys Disney stories.
