In honor of this weekend’s release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, we’ve put together a list of our favorite film pirates-have a great weekend!
1. Captain Jack Sparrow
He’s the king of the world right now, and the reason is that Johnny Depp has created an icon in Captain Jack Sparrow.
2. Captain Hook
I love the movie Hook
, and Dustin Hoffman’s portrayal of Hook is brilliant, and actually quite dark given that his Hook is suicidal This is my favorite clip from the film
, where Captain Hook tries to end it all.
3. The Dread Pirate Roberts (The Princess Bride)
Although we never actually see Westley being the Dread Pirate, his reputation proceeds him.
4. Captain Shakespeare of the Caspartine (Stardust)
I love this movie, and especially Robert De Niro as the ruthless, cruel and downright nasty air pirate with a deep secret.
5. Han Solo
The most famous space pirate ever, he’s got the swagger, the charm, and some sweet hidden cargo compartments.
