Yeah, so this guy built a boat. Why? Because he’s making a homemade pirate film. Why? Because his kids dig pirates. Why? Because, you know, pirates rule.
I doubt it will be Oscar material, and the CGI sea creatures might not be up to par with Disney, but hey, it might still be fun. I can think of at least three pirate films I’ve reviewed that it can’t actually be worse than, so there’s that. Plus, maybe it will have small children in fake beards pretending to swill rum, which is worlds better than dressing children up as vegetables. God, now I’ve creeped myself out.
