D-Xirable Movie Time! Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Everything, Everything

Hello, my wonderful and amazing loves!

Today, I went to the Cinemark Palace in the Plaza to see a double feature (two movies). First, I went to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Then, my mom came and we saw Everything, Everything. Both movies were just okay. Honestly, I could have waited to see both of them.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Synopsis: Captain Jack Sparrow (played by handsome and talented, Johnny Depp) is pursued by an old nemesis, Captain Armando Salazar (played by talented, Javier Bardem), who along with his Spanish Navy ghost crew has escaped from the Devil’s Triangle and is determined to kill every pirate at sea. Jack, aided by his new allies Henry Turner (played by cutie, Brenton Thwaites) and Carina Smyth (played by Kaya Scodelario), must seek the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants its possessor total control over the seas, in order to defeat Salazar and break all sea curses. Henry Turner is Will Turner Jr.'s (played by gorgeous and talented, Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swan's (played by the gorgeous and talented, Keira Knightley) son and Carina Smyth is Captain Barbossa's daughter.

Gorgeous and talented, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Jr.!

To me, the synopsis just doesn't fit right. Although the film is about Captain Jack Sparrow, and Captain Armando Salazar is trying to get revenge on him, I felt like this movie was more geared toward Henry Turner and Carina Smyth. Henry Turner is Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann's son who's trying to break his father's curse, while Carina Smyth is Captain Barbossa's daughter trying to find the Trident of Poseidon in her father's honor. Although, Javier Bardem made an incredible villain and it was nice to see Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa, and Paul McCartney made a nice cameo, this wasn't my favorite film of the franchise. But you could say I'm biased because I mainly watch Pirates of the Caribbean for Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley, and Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom were barely in this movie.

Young Jack Sparrow!

Handsome and talented, Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow!

Favorite Quotes:

"I will not pay for that." - Henry Turner. Never say that to a woman."- Captain Jack Sparrow
"How dare you do exactly what I would do if I were you." - Captain Jack Sparrow

Everything, Everything

Maddy (played by extremely beautiful and talented, Amandla Stenberg)
Synopsis: What if you couldn't touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face… or kiss the boy next door? Everything, Everything tells the unlikely love story of Maddy (played by extremely beautiful and talented, Amandla Stenberg), a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly (played by cute, Nick Robinson), the boy next door who won’t let that stop them. Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together… even if it means losing everything.

Maddy and Olly!

Olly and Maddy!

I wanted to love this movie. I love a good romance film. In fact, I'm a sucker for a good romance! However, this movie wasn't it. My mom didn't care for it either. It was very awkward and slow at first. I know it's supposed to be that way, we're talking about a young girl who has had very little human conversation but it was just too awkward for me. It didn't help that there were two other young girls in the theater laughing at the awkward moments as well. However, I did enjoy the beach scenes in Hawaii. Those moments were really cute.

Fave Quotes:
"Love can't kill me, mom." - Maddy
"Call him. Don't be a coward."
"Every ocean deserves to be seen by you." - Olly
"Aloha. Don't die."
"Dear mom, I know staying in this house keeps me alive, but this isn’t living. I want to experience everything. Everything. This is all I want." - Maddy

Hope you enjoyed the pics and post!

With love,
