Mermaids. Lots of mermaids. Johnny Depp. A budding mermaid-human relationship. Those are basically why I tolerated and sat through Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
I’m not a fan of the Pirates series but I find Johnny Depp amusing and funny. He’s like a gay pirate, but wittier and manlier (Did I just made sense here?). Anyway, back to mermaids!
Call me a kid but am I the only one who swooned over the Syrena (Astrid Berges-Frisbey) and Philip (Sam Claflin) tandem? Nakakakilig! I want to buy the DVD once it’s out and then replay their scenes over and over. Or I could just download it or something. Duh.
When I think of mermaids, I think of Ariel of The Little Mermaid; sweet, innocent, and playful. And then Peter Pan in 2003 (featuring Jeremy Sumpter) portrayed them as monsters with really bad teeth.

Okay, I’m rambling. I ramble and become incoherent when I’m in awe. So, just go ahead and check the video. It’s not in HQ, though. It’s one of the few scenes I vividly remember.
This particular scene is so eerie and enchanting at the same time, that I got goosebumps all over! I’ve had My Jolly Sailor Bold reverberating in my head for days now. Syet!
How about you? Have you seen Pirates 4? How was it?
