I've been doing some 'research' to help me prepare for the upcoming battle and downloaded a couple of classic pirate movies. I got Captain Blood from 1935 and Treasure Island from 1934. Can anyone recommend some other great classic pirate movies? I've seen the modern Pirates of the Carribean movies already.

I don't know that this is great but it's probably the serial I saw as a youngster. It appears to be available some places on dvd. Search for Great Adventures Captain Kidd dvd

or else go to YouTube and type in their search Captain Kidd serial.

Here's the trailer:

Errol Flynn and swashbuckling. And now Cutthroats. Exciting times!

I predict a unsuspecting default avatar will be caught up in a bloody battle between the rocky cliffs of cutthroat cove, he will bravely sink the ship captained by the evil tyrant Conrad Max and his motley crew  - he will ignore the cheering crowd around him and wander off into the night a nameless hero.

This is going to be awesome. It would be so cool if enough people showed up so that we could have a 3vs3 ship fight!

Me to,

I'm glad people like Julie are stepping up and giving the community fun activities to do that are not only free, but bring people together in a constructive way... My only concern is, will I use fire cannonballs or the green smoke ones

I'm planning on rotating to confuse my opponents.

I wish we had grappling hooks...

But if we had grappling hooks, that wouldn't be fair, wouldn't it?

I grew up on Errol Flynn swashbucklers, and since you've already seen Captain Blood, the two I'd recommend would be The Sea Hawk and Against All Flags.

The Sea Hawk, along with Robin Hood, shows Flynn in his prime -- it also doesn't hurt that both films have a Korngold soundtrack. But the hidden gem might be Against All Flags. It was filmed only a few years before the man's death, and he's clearly well past his best years, but it's a surprisingly darn good pirate movie. It helps that Maureen O'Hara and Anthony Quinn brought their A-game to this film. Check it out:


Hope that helps.
