Freshen Up Your Pirate Speak, Landlubbers! Savvy?
With all the depressing news going on, we sea dogs need to have fun sometimes, right?
Well, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and it's the perfect occasion to lighten the mood around the office — and re-watch some of your favorite pirate movies.
1. Hook (1991)
Directed by Steven Spielberg, Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman star as a grown up Peter Pan and a regular Captain Hook, respectively. Now a middle-aged lawyer, Peter Banning has to return to Neverland after his kids are kidnapped by Hook — which is going to be hard since the abandoned Tinkerbell and Lost Boys are under the leadership of Rufio now.
2. All of The Pirates of the Caribbean Movies (2003-2017)
Of course I had to include the Pirates of the Caribbean movies here — they were probably the pinnacle of every '90s kid's childhood. There are five films in this franchise and perfect for an all-night movie marathon! Start with The Curse of the Black Pearl where we meet the beautiful Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley — and of course, the infamous Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.
End with the newest installation Dead Men Tell No Tales, arguably the worst in the franchise — if you can't stomach that, move on to the next!
