(at around 57 mins) The British commander demands a witch to interpret Carina's calculations on the prison cell wall. In reality, a naval commander of the 18th century -or any educated person at the time, in fact- would have been quite familiarized with such drawings. Carina's abilities shouldn't have been surprising to anyone, much less a sailor, as astronomy was a proven science and the British in particular very keen on its study. In fact. by the time the movie is set, the Greenwich Naval Observatory was over a century old. At the most, Carina would have been considered eccentric or a little odd, but never a witch. See more »

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
Definitely not as bad as many critics said it to be (In fact, I don't consider it as 'bad' at all).
Expectations is everything with these movies. While the previous Pirates of the Caribbean (PotC) movie feels more like a spin-off than a direct sequel to the original trilogy, "Dead Men Tell No Tales/Salazar's Revenge" continues the lore of the first 3 movies. While continuity errors are somewhat blatant, you can't say this movie is the worst of the 5 PotC movies. The actions are more grounded than the previous movies, and they managed to salvage themselves after the less-than-mediocre "On Stranger Tides". The humor's there, and just enough. The amount of screen time of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley probably means that there'll be more of these movies in the future. There's also a familiar feels to the first movie in this one. Perhaps this familiarity is what makes critics hate it. But seriously, if you despised "On Stranger Tides", this one you'll probably like. I'd say this is the best PotC movie since the first one back in early 2000's.
Oh, and Javier Bardem, as always, is menacing as the latest baddie "Capitan Salazar".
