I can't wait for Pirates of the Caribbean. This movie looks so cool. ;-)


*grins* Yeppers! What's the count down, and what day are we going?

Tomorrow, and I dunno.

The movie opens tomorrow, but I don't know for sure when I'll be going.

I'm going to *try* to squeeze it in between work tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I'll make it. I can try to give you a call, if you'd like, but I have a feeling I won't be able to provide more than about 10-15 minutes of advance notice.

Damn, work sucks. Luckily, I have an interview on Thursday for a new job, and hopefully that'll work out. ;-)

Depp rocks.

I have to agree. I've thought Johnny Depp was cool ever since 21 Jump Street, and he's done some great movies since then, too.

9th Gate wasn't my favorite Depp movie. . . it did have some really cool ideas in it, and I rather enjoyed watching it, but the ending left me. . . I dunno, wanting more.

Donny Brasco, Nick of Time, Sleepy Hollow, Don Juan DeMarco, and others have all rocked, though. ;-)
I'm stoked.


First of all, I'm a fan of Johnny Depp. Add to that a mild obsession with Pirates, and you've got the makings for some serious fun. ;-)

Re: Yep.

Yeah, same here. Arg, Pirates rule!
I suppose I'll catch this one on DVD :P

That's fine. . .

I'll enjoy it for you. With luck, tomorrow, on opening day. ;-)

Re: That's fine. . .

It's less by choice, and more by me being in Germany :P

Re: That's fine. . .

I kinda figured that. Sucks to be you. ;-)

I'll let you know if it's any good. ;-)

Re: That's fine. . .

One of these days, I'm going to meet you

And you'll get thwapped.

Re: That's fine. . .

Quite likely.

Although, and I apologize for the inconvenience, you'll likely have to wait in line. ;-)
i don't know a pirate movie will always be a pirate movie

i don't remember ever watching a good pirate movie

except cartoon pirates when i was young
but i had shitty taste in movies then
i watched kazam three times!

i can't wait to watch kung fu soccer!


Are you joking?

There's been lots of good pirate movies. Especially if you broaden things a little bit to include swashbuckler movies (which are similar, and also good).

This is a far from incomplete list of good Pirate and Swashbuckling movies (many are older, the Eroll Flynn movies are particularly awesome):

  • Captain Kidd
  • Captain Blood
  • Treasure Island
  • The Sea Hawk
  • Against All Flags
  • The Spanish Main
  • The Black Swan
  • The Buccanneer
  • The Crimson Pirate
  • Swashbuckler
  • Roman Polanski’s Pirates
  • Cutthroat Island
  • The Master of Ballantrae
  • Nate and Hayes

These aren't typical pirate movies, but they're awesome swashbuckler-type movies.
  • Muppet Treasure Island
  • The Adventures of Don Juan
  • The Adventures of Robin Hood
  • The Princess Bride
  • The Three Musketeers (Disney version)
  • The Count of Monte Cristo

I know there's more I'm forgetting, but that's a pretty good list.
