Pirates Of The Caribbean Cheat Sheet: Everything You’ve Forgotten About The Franchise

Jack Sparrow

Captain Jack Sparrow isn’t always the main character of a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but he is always an important one. At the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Jack (Johnny Depp) had lost the Black Pearl to Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) for the second time, but he successfully kept the navigational charts that led him to the Fountain of Youth. While he never got to drink from the Fountain during On Stranger Tides, he did successfully escape Blackbeard alongside his stalwart first mate Gibbs, and with his compass and the Black Pearl in his possession, sort of…

Prey Review – Updated For Patch 1.02

What do you think?

With a sophisticated setting built to accommodate classic RPG mechanics we don’t see often enough in modern games, Prey feels both new and nostalgic at once. A wonderfully explorable science-fiction environment proves dense with interactive systems, intrigue, and ever-present danger. And even though combat’s only slightly preferable to the weak stealth options, I was a little surprised at how quickly my time-played clock seemed to tick toward 40 hours before I reached the end.

The first hours of Prey are enticing, with a mind-bending psychological opening scene that foreshadows a story more interesting than what the main plot ends up being. It’s fairly strong nevertheless, with some interesting implications and a few surprising characters who keep things moving along during dozens of hours of exploration. Its twist on the typical amnesiac protagonist premise prompted me to question everything I was told as I roamed the enormous and fascinatingly anachronistic space station, Talos I.

AWOL Trailer

“You need to start thinking about your future, honey.” The Orchard has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama titled AWOL, which played at tons of film festivals throughout 2016 and is hitting limited theaters and VOD later this month. As anyone in the military knows, AWOL stands for “Absent Without (Official) Leave”, which is part of the story in this film adapted from the director’s own short film. It’s about a young woman who is about to join the army but decides to run off with another woman she meets and falls in love with in a small town. Lola Kirke and Breeda Wool star, along with Dale Soules, Bill Sage, and Ted Welch. This seems to be heavily influenced by director Deb Shoval’s own experiences growing up in a small Pennsylvania coal town, and it looks like it tells a very honest story of love and family. Take a look. ›››
