Pirate movies

I finally saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest...what a disappointing film. The first one was so good; this one is an incoherent mess.

Here are my picks for the Top Pirate movies ever made...

#10 - Captain Kidd starring Charles Laughton
#9 - Blackbeard the Pirate starring Linda Darnell
#8 - Peter Pan...the Walt Disney version
#7 - Treasure Island...the old one, with Jackie Cooper as Jim
#6 - Captain Blood...the film that made Errol Flynn a star
#5 - Sinbad the Sailor starring Maureen O'Hara
#4 - The Spanish Main starring Maureen O'Hara
#3 - The Black Swan starring Maureen O'Hara
#2 - Against All Flags starring Maureen O'Hara
#1 - Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
...surprisingly excellent, it's the "gold standard" for pirate movies now, even without Maureen O'Hara

Keith,

My kids liked the movie. I gave it
a C. I wanted more reality, this
was pure fantasy. It was too long.

I don't go to see pirate movies...I'm a pacifist.

Don't forget about Ice Pirates.
