Whenever I see any of the Pirates 4 previews I think a few things.

1….how a spicy character like Captain Jack Sparrow is best used as seasoning in a stew made of more rational characters and even though PIRATES 2 and 3 were a horrible story mess, Will and Elizabeth gave it a grounding that made Jack seem more likable. Of course there is still Barbossa, and now Ian McShane (!). I do like Penelope Cruz as a little more experienced character, though. She’s a good foil for Jack.

2…Johnny Depp sure is fine.
