Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) takes on zombies, mermaids... and Penelope Cruz...

Release Date: May 20, 2011; Rated: PG-13; Length: 141 Minutes; Genre: Action/Adventure; With: Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp; Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures

STARRING Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane
DIRECTED BY Rob Marshall

Those who know the backstory of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now understand that you need to be very brave, or very foolish, to film in a jungle. And Coppola didn't have to deal with 3-D cameras. ''I couldn't decide if we were stupid or pioneers,'' says director Rob Marshall, who kicked off the production of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in some of Hawaii's leafier locales before moving to L.A., Puerto Rico, and London. ''But there's nothing like doing it for real and not being on a stage with a green screen.'' Marshall (Chicago) replaces Gore Verbinski, who opted to leave the franchise after directing the first three films. Other fresh faces include Ian McShane, who plays the evil Blackbeard, and Penélope Cruz, who portrays Blackbeard's daughter, Angelica. There is also a new quest, for the Fountain of Youth — plus zombies and mermaids.

Of course, Johnny Depp returns as Capt. Jack Sparrow, and Keith Richards reprises his role as Jack's father. ''We needed his character back,'' says Depp of Richards. ''That was one of the things I felt very strongly about.'' What was it like to hang out with the Rolling Stones legend again? ''It was perfection!'' laughs Depp. Marshall relished the chance to work with Richards too. ''I did not expect him to be so funny,'' says the director. ''After one take I said, 'Keith, you're such a good actor.' He said, 'You should see my Hamlet!''' —Clark Collis

With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”

“This new presentation of Paramount’s top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio,” said Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of Titanic.”

Thai Beef Salad

1 lb tender beef steak, such as top sirloin.

For the salad:
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1 tomato, cut into wedges
1 cucumber, peeled, cut lengthwise in half and thinly sliced
1-2 Thai bird’s-eye chilies or according to taste (I use 1-2 serrano chilies)

For the sauce:
1/4 cup Thai fish sauce
1/4 cup lime juice
2 - 3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped scallions

Grill beef until medium to well-done. Slice thinly on the bias and set aside. Combine all the salad ingredients and add the sliced beef. Make the sauce by mixing together all the ingredients and toss with the salad.

Serve over a bed of green lettuce (e.g. Romaine) whole or chopped, or place individual servings over a large lettuce leaf.

Variations - Mint and sliced shallots can be added to the salad. Grilled shrimp or calamari may be substituted for the beef. Instead of lettuce, the salad may be served with a wedge of fresh cabbage. Palm sugar (or any other sugar) may be added for a slight touch of sweetness.

To see your natural appearance and enjoy your melodious music.

To feel your unconstraint joy and your happy time.

Running out are my happy tears.
Following the direction of sound of songs in the wind,
My soul flies to the remote place far away from here.

Tashi Delek, my hometown.
I had the happiest time there.
I think of you day and night.
You are in my dream; you touch my soul.
I miss you with the deepest love.

It is peaceful and harmonious.
It is the Heaven in my dream.
