Blu-Ray and Digital HD Releases

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

14 years since the original Pirates of the Caribbean hit the theaters, here we are with the fifth installment in the series with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales which hits Blu-Ray and 4K today.

Johnny Depp is back again as the affable and drunk pirate Jack Sparrow. This time he goes against a ghostly crew led by Captain Salazar, played by the talented Javier Bardem. Added to the story is Henry Turner, who is determined to free his father Will Turner (with Orlando Bloom reprising his role in the franchise) by finding Poseidon’s trident which is believed to have the power to break the curse. Along the way we meet Carina, a spirited astronomer with a mysterious past, who joins Jack and Henry to retrieve the trident.

Although the film was received with mixed reviews especially criticizing some repetitive elements making it too similar to the past films in the franchise, the film still works. Carried by the chilling acting of Javier Bardem, in addition to the fun random cameos, and the flashback scenes telling Jack’s back story, this Pirates is arguably one of the better ones.

The movie was originally filmed on digital, so the transfer to Blu-Ray is perfect. The details are especially evident in the flowing special effects of Captain Salazar’s hair in addition to the bright colorful scenery. The audio is supplied via DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack and really shines in the battle scenes.

Extras include a seven part featurette which mostly centers on the ongoing franchise and the new faces added to this film. In addition, there’s the blooper reel, deleted scenes, and a stills collection of Jerry Bruckheimer‘s Photo diary.

This is a solid pickup for any fan of the franchise as it helps bring back a lot of the fan favorites once again. You’ll recognize a lot of familiar faces in this one, and it’s great to see Jack Sparrow at it again. The blu-ray presentation is impeccable as always and would be a solid addition to any Pirates of the Caribbean collection.
