Im pretty sure that writers have a morbid outlook on everything and have a strong "opinion" about things. What they dont tell you is that they are trying to convince you on whatever tangent they're being bothered by. The truth is that everyone has an opinion. Whether its right or wrong, its up to the person spending good, hard earned money to see movies like Pirates. Columnists have a way to tear down fantasies and turn them into a verbal diarrhea of non-sense and bs. Take their writings with a grain of salt and see what you wanna see. And to the writers, not everything is black and white. Unless of course your head is up your ass.
