Movie Pirates on Deck #monday #meme

UpdatedMondayMovieMemeGraphic

It looks like we’re walking the plank during this week’s edition of the Monday Movie Meme, as Dale at Smurfin’ the Web randomly offers up the new topic: Pirates. I’m taking a page from Dale’s book and skipping the obvious film franchise that comes to mind, thanks to Johnny Depp. Here are my selections for the Pirates Monday Movie Meme.

Movie Pirates on Deck

Hook
While I’m not a huge fan of the whole Peter Pan craze, “Hook” fits the pirate bill to a tee. In the film, Peter Pan tries to save his kids, who have been kidnapped by Hook. The movie used to creep me out, so I stopped watching it and haven’t seen it in years...but somehow I managed to still take a liking to it. Hmm, I don’t know if it’s because of Dustin Hoffman or Robin Williams or if it means that I’m sorta being masochistic.

Look, I’m short on Pirate characters so yes, I’m going to go there....

Movie Pirates on Deck

Pirates
Known as the most expensive adult film ever made, "Pirates" stars Jesse Jane, Steven St. Croix and some other people who may not be familiar to the average movie goer. It is listed as an adult action-adventure movie and the New York Times describes it as “a relatively high-budget story of a group of ragtag sailors who go searching for a crew of evil pirates who have a plan for world domination.”

Well, I don’t know about all of the drama that went down in this movie because I turned it off. The acting in “Pirates” was so-so and it was quite boring -- but there WERE pirates in this movie that go to war with a crew on another ship, so that counts, right? There was a lot of hoopla surrounding this film when it came out because of the production and it has you know, like, a plot and whatnot -- like regular movies, so I guess it's worth a mention, if for only a moment.

That’s all I have for this week's Monday Movie Meme list.

I saw a movie trailer for “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” when I went to see "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” a few months ago and not only do I think it’s cute, I also thought it would be a fitting choice for my list but I just realized that Dale already mentioned it on his blog. So instead of posting the trailer, here are some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the making of this movie, that I found for your viewing pleasure!

There has to be other Pirate films out there, so what am I missing?
Can YOU think of any?

Ohh....pirates, eh? Hmmm....

Ice Pirates (1984): Classic cheese from the 80's!
Serenity (2005): The movie finale to Firefly
Cutthroat Island (1995): This movie completely bombed in the theaters
Muppet Treasure Island (1996): Hey, at least it had Tim Curry in it!
Pirates of Silicon Valley (TV 1999): Does this count? ;-)

I loved The Pirate Movie, starring Kristy McNichol (probably butchered the spelling), as a kid. It was a riff on Pirates of Penzance. Quite a kick.

Hmm... I can't think of any besides the original Peter Pan that you didn't already name. There have to be others though ... Will have to see if anything comes to mind.

Now, if you switch the s to a d and look at pirated movies, that's a whole other topic in itself. Just playing with words to make it work for me. ;)

I can't think of any offhand that you and Dale haven't mentioned. I know I've seen a lot of older pirate movies, but I can't recall any of them.

Herman,

Sometimes it seems like the better movies bomb in theaters while the junk dominates the box office. It may not necessarily be a bad thing though...I mean, how would we ever have the cult genre, otherwise?!

You get no judgement here from me with that Muppet movie on your list. Just WAIT until you find out what I have in store for my "I" letter day in the A to Z Challenge next month, lol. Oh and yes, TV movies count...so, I'll be looking that Silicon Valley up online one of these days.

Alana,

Playing with words can work here too...it's fun, so have at it but be warned, we will be here all day long if we replaced the 's' with a 'd' and you know this, I'm sure :)

Arlee,

Sometimes, it happens that way. It's good to know what Dale and I do at least have you thinking about those old Pirate movies, though. Maybe you can let us know about them if you do ever recall them.

Dale,

HA! You kill me, LOL.
