I’d be lying if I said I was hot to see Rob Marshall‘s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (Disney, 5.20.11). Yes, the prospect of digital 3D IMAX mildly entices, and Ian McShane as a drunken Blackbeard…whatever. But I heard something last night about Marshall’s direction of the action scenes, which is that he’s choreographed them to some extent like musical dance numbers, or (another way of putting it) in the jaunty acrobatic vein of Burt Lancaster in The Crimson Pirate. So that’s agreeable, if true. Taken with a grain.
