Review: Watching "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is like being force-fed shit, vomiting, and then eating it again

Roger Ebert has the best Facebook stream ever. He called this the most viscous and negative movie review he'd ever read. A Fountain of Maggots: Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides | The House Next Door
I finally sat down to eat, and took my first bite. Then the second. I nibbled on a potato, I think, and had a spoon full of peas. Then I looked down, and, as I did, a strange sight caught my eye. Something was on the move on the left breast of the chicken. I looked closer. And, there they were: Two ravenous maggots had crawled out of their cocoons of flesh, and were gently, yet hurriedly, traversing this vast expanse of food, harbingers of their ravenous brothers who were only just waking up. There's nothing more terrifying, to me at least, than looking at one's food, and seeing on it larval insects. I gagged. I gagged again. I threw out the food in the dumpster immediately, and took out the bag and dumped it in the skip outside my building. Then I made myself vomit for an hour. This, my friends, was one of the worst experiences of my life. Well, Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was worse. One of the worst films of all time, On Stranger Tides has absolutely and utterly no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I wanted to say it's like watching an enema, but even that's a good thing: you get rid of the filth. Instead, here, you are force-fed shit, then made to regurgitate it, and then eat it again. It's as if you were cloned, and the clones shared the same consciousness, and then were turned into the human centipede, but instead of three, this centipede is endless. It's not so much pain, though there's that, too, but, instead, nausea. What can I say about it? There are pirates and movie stars and ships and mermaids and whatever. Something about the Fountain of Youth. I don't know. I don't fucking care anymore.

Did you ever wonder why Dave Foley was in so many bad films?

Sad Sack Case File #188: The Wrong Guy | Film | My Year Of Flops | The A.V. Club
Foley got divorced in the mid-’90s, when he was still a big television star, with the money and status that entails. His ex-wife wanted to be kept in the manner to which she’d grown accustomed even after Foley’s income plummeted along with his career, and prestigious roles in high-profile fare like NewsRadio and A Bug’s Life gave way to accepting bit parts in whatever promised to keep the lights on that month. The Kids In The Hall veteran owes $17,000 a month in child-support payments and now owes over a half million dollars in back payments. If Foley returns to his native Canada without paying off what he owes or working out an arrangement, he very well could be arrested. There are few things in the world more embarrassing than getting arrested for back child support. It combines the humiliation of arrest with the disgrace of being perceived as lacking in the parenting department. Us rubberneckers in the WTF listening audience aren’t privy to the innermost details of Foley’s strange situation, but it’s pretty clear that he’s fucked. On WTF, Foley noted that even if he died, his estate would still owe the child-support payments; not even the sweet release of the grave could help him. Foley’s performance in Uwe Boll’s Postal betrays that sense of world-weary exhaustion, the zen of having given up. When Foley’s pot-smoking, debauched, sex-crazed cult leader (to make things even sadder, Foley’s character is named “Uncle Dave”) gets up from a bed and his naked, flaccid penis makes its onscreen debut, he seems to implicitly be saying, “There. You’ve seen my penis and seen me take a crap onscreen. In a Uwe Boll film! My humiliation is complete. There is nothing more anyone can do to me. I have reached my personal and professional nadir and have decided to stay here at the bottom indefinitely. Heaven knows I can’t go back to Canada.” Where did a glorious future turn into an ugly present and then a traumatic past?
