In Episode 49 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. takes to the high seas for his review of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. But first he looks back at star Johnny Depp’s most surprising roles with another round of Let’s Talk About SIX. So, is Jack Sparrow better the fifth time around? Listen for yourself. Yo ho, yo ho and all that…
Film synopsis, courtesy of Disney:
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
