Shipwreck John

Movie Pirates

55 posts in this topic

While Cap'n Jack, and Cap'n Barbossa are good, as is old Long John. I have to say Morgan Adams and Dawg Brown. Cutthroat Island is still one of my favorite pirate movies, probably because I have always found Gina Davis to be extremely attractive, and I liked Frank Langella as Dawg Brown, in fact the ship I am on has clothing and props from the Cutthroat Island movie, including one of Dawg's swivle guns and one of the banners from his ship.

Some of my favorites:

Tim Curry from Muppet Treasure Island

Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook

Robert Newton's Long John Silver

Capts. Sparrow and Barbossa

Taggart from GQ

Han Solo (why not?)

Also from PotC...

Pintel and Ragetti

Though it's not specifically stated that she's a pirate, I also liked Zoe Saldana's Anamaria

Gotta say either Dog Brown from Cutthroat Island, or Captain Ron, as un-piratey as he may be, he cracks me up...

Capton Ron, Now there is a character I'll have to add to my list. That was the first movie I bought to start my my Pirate collection, I Pirate he might not be , but alas, he does seem to the heart of one! :D

the best part of that movie to me was the opening scene , the line about the shot forgive me ifin I do'nt quote it exactly

"well, you see, I knew that you knew so I took your balls!"

tuchet, Morgan Addams!!

Ah, but don't forget the subtle but well delivered line ...

"That was a hell of a thing"

My favorite subtle line was, "Woooww -- the floors are sooo clean!!"

(I shall shut up about GQ now, I swear.)

One more ...

Waaaaay before I was a fan of pirates (was there such a time?! :huh: ), I was a MAJOR fan of Dustin Hoffman as the infamous Captain Hook. I love Dustin anyway ("The Graduate" is one of my all-time favs), and his portrayal of Hook was just hilarious; he and Bob Hoskins (Smee) were obviously just having _such_ a good time ...

"I just had an apostrophe."

"I think you mean an epiphany."

"Lightning has just struck my brain."

"Well, that must hurt."

... methinks I'll have to be rentin' this movie sometime soon ... it's been awhile!

Well here's some shocking news, i'm sure you didn't see this coming...Barbossa! set376a.jpg

Well ok, i have two i like very much too (Oh and Jack ofcourse..he's cute and funny but..) Dawg brown and Mr. Scully.

They're so cool and make great villains, esp. Dawg..what is it that us women fall for dangerous men? :huh: (Or am i alone on this..) but it's like Barbossa first place (On a big pedestal.. :huh: ) and the rest follows from about third of fourth place... :huh:

I THINK you're talking about Don Karnage ... voiced by the ever-delightful Jim Cummings. I always loved Karney --- he's one of those hilarious cartoon villians that are just SO much fun to watch. :huh:

Hey, no dissing actors. Wm Bowles worked as an actor for a time before he tried to seize the entire southern half of the US...... :o
