And in Apocalypse, for example, they did not touch on the common themes, like isolation in a closed bunker, or outside marauders, or establishing new dystopian order in the mini-society, all that normally horror stories of that kind are about. Instead, it is witches vs. the antichrist. Ugh.
As for Pirates of the Caribbean, well, a flop of a franchise is still a good enough show, so we could yet get something out of it. Besides, there is, however slim, a chance that, against all odds, it will actually be a nice restart (I know, wishful thinking, but hope and all that...)
