    Has any of you ever seen "The son of monte christo"? because i have, and it certainly dosent look like a pirate movie to me, no merchantmen, no navy, no pirate ships, no sea even. and not a single time is "Pirate" mentioned.

    I agree with you. However, it is one of the films on my 3 great pirate movies collection. DVD called "Legendary Pirate Movies." Watched it and I think it is more "Swashbuckler" than pirate.

    Another movie considered a pirate movie is "A High Wind in Jamaica" starring James Coburn and Anthony Quinn.

    The Goonies: Not really a pirate movie, but it certainly revolves around the subject.

    Aye, the Goonies is a great movie.

    Do you want me to remove "The son of Monte Cristo" or not?

    Different opinions are going to abound on this issue. It has been my experience that a number of movies are categorized as "Pirate Movies", but really do not fit the true pirate mold. But since you are updating the list I would think what you want to list is up to you. When individuals review the list they can decide for themselves what is/is not a pirate movie. Personally, I have a number of movies considered to be "Pirate Movies", but have not listed them here. In my opinion, they could fit/or not fit. That's my 2 cents.

    Alright, I leave the swashbuckler films, I think it have the spirit of piracy.

    And to add to the list, a very good movie with Mr R. Newton : Blackbeard the pirate

    "Captain Horatio Hornblower" (1951) with Gregory Peck.

    Not really a Pirate Movie (much more a Royal Navy movie) but a real good movie with excellent swordfighting action and sea battles in the napoleonic era. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    Jack Black, I love that movie! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/me.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":onya" border="0" alt="me.gif" /> "He knew me name!" <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/piratesing.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shock" border="0" alt="piratesing.gif" />

    Maybe, Captain Dams, you could expand your idea to "movies that pirate-minded folks might enjoy", rather than compiling a list of "piracy exclusive" movies. There are a lot of swashbuckling films out there, even "Hamlet" has pirates in it. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/duel_pa.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":ixi" border="0" alt="duel_pa.gif" /> <u>The Princess Bride</u> comes to mind.

    This is a TV movie adaptation of <u>The Scarlet Pimpernel</u>, that I remember enjoying. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/beer2.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":beer" border="0" alt="beer2.gif" /> (Didn't we used to have a smiley that was eating popcorn? <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dunno.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shrug" border="0" alt="dunno.gif" /> )

    <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084637/" target="_blank">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084637/</a>

    I like this adaptation because this is one of the few screenplays that, in my opinion, is better than the book. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bookish.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":mm" border="0" alt="bookish.gif" />

    Ahoy, Capn Enigma!

    Aye! Captain Horatio Hornblower is a great movie.

    SCM "movies that pirate-minded folks might enjoy" sounds like a great idea. I remember enjoying The Three Musketeers even if there're no pirate in it.
