Michael Bolton, cinephile

Language NSFW. So wrong — and so awesome:

If they played that chorus over the end credits of On Stranger Tides, I’m not sure I’d mind at all.

Not sure if Bolton actually loves the Pirates movies in real life, but I certainly do. Thematically, there’s quite a lot going on under the films’ giddy, bubbling surface: explorations of freedom and obligation, of the death of myth and the rise of commerce, and more. (Fascinating interviews with the screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio here and here.) I hope the newest chapter doesn’t disappoint.
