Pirate of the Caribbean: On stranger tides (2011)

The first POC trilogy grew from a silly, irreverent, surreal adventure possibly dreamt up by a Monty Python fanboy into a bloated, meandering, incomprehensible mess.

Rob Marshall takes rein in POC 4 and chops the series down to size.

The downside is Marshall has no cinematic sense and frames his shots too tightly all of the time, you feel you're watching the TV movie of POC and not a fine cinematic mess.
