What we’re Enjoying
In anticipation of this week’s show, Jay found an old 1935 pirate movie starring Erol Flynn called Captain Blood. It was a totally fun pirate story with a lot of action and adventure that is still enjoyable to watch. You can still see it too. Listen in to hear how. Shua checked out Netflix’s new anime adaptation of a pirate story called One Piece. The live action does a great job of using the weird, anime-like characteristics of the original cartoon.
This week we celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day! In addition to annoying all your friends and family members by sounding like Long John Silver, you can also indulge in some pirate movies.
Pirates have been characters in movies almost since the beginning of cinema. The adventure of swashbuckling adventurers made for an exciting movie-going experience for everyone. So we got to see Errol Flynn swinging from ship to ship and Kevin Kline singing very old Gilbert and Sullivan tunes and even Bob Hope as the buccaneer hero.
Of course we also get classics like Disney classics Treasure Island, Peter Pan, and Pirates of the Caribbean and kept the genre going. There are so many more great adventures we can enjoy and some of them are on TV like Our Flag Means Death and One Piece. Plus we can even play video games like Broadsides and the Monkey Island Series. So long live pirates! (At least the harmless kind)
Do you want to maraud and embezzle and even hijack? Well, drink up me hearties, yo ho! First person that emails me with the subject line, “A pirate's life for me” will get a special mention on the show. Let us know.
