Perhaps most well known for his devious role as the self-serving pirate, Barbossa, in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush has taken part in a wide range of films like Gods Of Egypt, Intolerable Cruelty and Shakespeare In Love, as well as the upcoming Genius, in which he plays Albert Einstein. I particularly enjoy his speeches in the Pirates franchise where his words seem to role off the tongue like a Shakespearean sonnet. There are many unexpected layers to his character in the upcoming 5th film in the franchise, as we will soon find out. But don’t worry, there are no spoilers.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review + Premiere Pics #PiratesLifeEvent

New Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Featurette #PiratesLife #PiratesOfTheCaribbean

I have been a fan of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise since the beginning. I believe that I have seen every single one of the films in the theater, too. You guys know how much I love to travel to the Caribbean and there is just something so magical and fun about the life of a pirate {the fictionalized Disney version, of course}. The setting. The lifestyle. The rum. The whole thing just draws me in. ;) And, Johnny Depp. Is he not the perfect pirate? I was fortunate enough to get to travel to LA to see the Hollywood premiere of the latest installment in the franchise, which hits theaters everywhere on May 26th, courtesy of Disney. Now I am sharing pictures from the premiere and my opinions with you. Read my review, watch the movie for yourself and let me know if you agree with my Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review in the comments section below. [Read more…]
