Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (AKA Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) (2017, dir. Joachim Ronning & Espen Sandberg)

Jack Sparrow is hunted down by an old ghostly enemy. The fifth entry in the series is tedious in the extreme, a laboured and unfunny recycling of story elements from previous episodes, with a plainly bored cast of veterans. Time to lay these bones to rest.
