Man Dressed Like a Pirate
John Baur and Mark Summers reportedly came up with the idea, while playing racquetball. The "talk like a pirate" Web site is promoting the idea by supporting their fellow mates who want to throw a party on this day.
Pirates have grown in popularity particularly because of the romanticised version portrayed by the books and movies. For those who wish to watch some good pirate movies, here are the top three pirate movies to watch.
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
The modern version of a pirate is a hilarious one portrayed by Jonny Depp in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series. The first movie is seen by fans to be the best perhaps because of the shock value it brought to the table.
It is a tale of a strange and funny pirate who seems to get everything right in the end. The pirate was once a captain but was left to die on an island due to mutiny aboard his ship. His fellow pirates take the treasure cursed by the Gods.
Follow the adventures of the pirate as he helps a loving couple, fights the soldiers sent after him and much more. You can also enjoy the other movies from the same series like "Dead Man's Chest," "World's End" and "On Strangers' Tide"
Blackbeard, the Pirate
For those who prefer a more intense drama, this 1952 movie can be quite entertaining. The story is about "Sir Henry Morgan" who is no longer a pirate and serves as a high ranking official in Jamaica.
"Edward Maynard" however is not convinced that the pirate is reformed and seeks to expose him. He goes on to the ship as a surgeon, but little does he know that the man joining him on the ship is the notorious "Blackbeard" himself.
Will he succeed in his endeavours? Or will "Blackbeard" dominate his plans? And what is a woman doing on a ship? Watch the movie to know more.
For those who like an adventure, "Treasure Island" is the one to watch. The story is about a young boy "Jim Hawkins" who joins the pirate Long John Silver. They go on a quest to find the buried treasure of "Captain Flint." Will the young lad find the treasure? Watch him as he faces challenges on his adventure.
