Watched yesterday

Film no. 2315
Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End - 1/5
Never have I given such a big blockbuster such a poor rating, but this is pretty awful. A big lumbering dollop of a movie that doesn't have any kind of coherent plot. It feels like they were just making it up as they went along. Worst of all, the central character of Jack Sparrow, so engaging in The Curse Of The Black Pearl has been stripped back to a pale shadow of his former self. It's better technically, with some impressive CGI work, but even here it's bloated, with the final sea battle going on forever. Keira's gorgeous, but sadly not even she can save this sinking ship. It's made all the more depressing by the thought there will inevitibly be another one - in 3D :(

Frasier: The Gift Horse - 3/5

Modern Family: Great Expectation - 5/5

Breaking Bad: Better Call Saul - 4/5

Modern Family: Fizbo - 4/5

Modern Family: Undeck The Halls - 4/5
