Film Synopsis:

From Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer comes all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise — and mermaids! When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love or if she’s a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn’t know who to fear more —Blackbeard (Ian McShane) or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it’s filled with eye-popping battle scenes, mystery and all-out wit.

I'm really looking forward to this... But god, those packages, this is...PIRACY! To get the deleted scenes I have to buy 2 discs I don't want and will never use? To get the short, which sound very interesting, I have to rebuy the other 3 movies? I've gotta think about this for a bit, this is a little upseting? Am I the only one bothered by this packaging setup? Edit: To add insult to the whole thing, the 15 disc package comes with 5 discs I don't want and would never use? C'mon! This is just wrong! Edit2: Correction, 6 discs I don't want and would never use. I missed that 3D thing in there. There aren't words for this...

This is easily my 2nd favorite just behind the first film. I don't need all that fancy stuff so the 2-disc combo will do just fine. Ryan, just wait a bit most all that extra stuff will show up on YouTube then you can watch it for free.

Thank you, Disney, for once again releasing a 3D film on Blu-ray instead of making it an exclusive and thereby complicating the ability of some of us to see it in 3D at home.
