Top 50 Best Pirate Movies Of All Time

Pirate Movies

 

Ever wondered what kind of a lifestyle the pirates have been in? What would they eat or even how they evolved?

 

Here is a short voyage to the history and lifestyle of the pirates. The first generation of pirates was the fourteenth century BC people.

 

They were mostly sailors who figured out that Pirating would be the fastest way to earn money for their living.

 

Oops, if you don’t know what pirates do, they steal from the other sailors and help themselves with their food, money, and ships.

 

They fight battles to do this. Coming to the lifestyle, as pirates spent most of their time in the sea, they ate whatever they got from their steal.

 

They ate bread, meat, fermented veggies, and sometimes even dairy. Most of the time they do not have food to eat and suffer from starvation.

 

But they had good times when they succeeded in a battle and looted a ship, they would enjoy surplus food and good clothing.

 

They always have alcohol to drink. Facts state that the pirates from the Caribbean drank rum and beer all their life.

 

To bath and clean themselves, they make use of their own ships and they are likely to have the least hygienic lifestyle.

 

Did your mind imagine their lifestyle? Here is a list of fifty movies that would take you into the world of pirates and add more to your imagination.

This one is also a treasure story, it has Geena Davis playing the role of the dashing and bold Feisty Morgan Adams.

Are you wondering why? The map for the treasure exists. This map is tattooed into three parts.

 

One is tattooed on her father’s scalp and the other two on his brothers’. But if that has to be that simple, there is no thrill and excitement which would be so much less for a movie.

 

Right? So, when she approaches her uncle for this, she finds out that he is not supportive and never going to help.

 

When she questions why she realizes that her uncle wants all the treasure for himself.

We have definitely witnessed pirates in the sea in the past, but are there pirates who live in space in the future?

 

Keep guessing about this story about space pirates. This story revolves around a princess. This princess has lost her father, and he is not an ordinary man.

 

Her father might be in danger as he found something about the future happenings. Water is already scarce and these happenings had the power of turning everything upside down.

 

To find her father, our princess seeks the help of two space pirates. Then the story takes off with all the fun, adventure, sword fights, monsters, rescuing, and more.

 

This film was actually planned as a sci-fi. Guess what budget the tech team had for the movie then?

Wherever there is something bad happening, aren’t there people longing for a hero to happen and save them?

 

In a lot of movies, the hero comes from some other place for rescue or they can be born in the place of injustice simply.

 

This story happens in the early 18th century in Jamaica. The city is ruled by a wicked Governor, Lord Durant.

 

He is very cruel and troubles the common people. He is not elected for the role of High Justice, but he takes the role after betraying the original Justice and imprisons him.

 

As revenge, the daughter of the justice offers money to Captain Red (Ned Lynch) to teach a lesson to Durant.

What could it probably be? He is asked to take them to his village. They all believe that there is a lot of treasure, valuables, and gold in the village.

 

Things slowly start getting out of hand and Jonathan becomes responsible and accountable for whatever was going on.

Is freedom something that people give us? Or is it something that we have in ourselves?

 

This movie is a story of freedom and independence. A Spanish pirate ship is damaged and has no way to sail.

 

The only option the ship has is to halt somewhere on a nearby shore and repair.

 

This nearby shore happens to be an isolated small English village. Having all the ways to save the ship and leave, the pirates decide to do something else.

 

The pirates become a part of the village and convince them that they are the rulers and the power of the English has subsided everywhere outside.

 

Trusting whatever they say, these villagers decide to listen to them. But soon comes a time where they find out the truth and start a revolution.

 

A fun fact about this movie is that there have been small accidents while shooting.

 

Also, being shot in the sea, the artists have encountered accidents aboard but luckily, nothing happened to anybody.

Will you accept the false blame just because you have been someone else in your past?

 

You wouldn't, right? That is what our Captain Blood also says. And he is more than ready to fight for justice.

 

Ages ago, Captain used to pirate valuables and ships, but now, he is a responsible peaceful common man.

 

In addition to all of that, he is planning to get married to the beautiful lady, Isabella, anytime soon.

 

While everything seems to be peaceful, one day the authorities arrest him for pirating. This makes it unbelievable and worse for Captain Blood.

 

He then understands that somebody else looted and made it look like it was Captain Blood.

 

Blood is in trouble. What is he going to do to get out of trouble?

 

This movie has a previous version which is Fortunes of Captain Blood, released in 1950.

This story is almost 76 years old and looks very much perfect for entertainment. Captain Kidd is all about Captain Kidd.

 

Also, there is some other extra information that I have for you about the movie.

 

It all starts with the introduction of Captain Kidd. He is intelligent, tricky, and does anything that he wants to.

 

He is more than perfect for a pirate. This time, the king falls for his words and agrees to pay him.

 

Pay him for what? Pay him if he pirates that ship which has a lot of gold, diamonds, treasure, and other valuables, sailing from India.

 

Captain Kidd is on this mission, but what does he have in mind? Will he take the treasure to the king as promised?

 

His intentions are not really to help the king. What is going to happen next is the rest of the movie.

 

The fun fact about this movie is that Captain Kidd is not a fictional character.

 

This story is slightly based on the life of William Kidd, the Pirate.

This was probably the first-ever Peter Pan movie. It was released in the 50s where animation was a fantasy.

That is where he is tested for his patience is so real. And finally, the day he awaited came.

 

He and his friends get a chance to take over the Spanish Ship. This incident makes them powerful and fearsome.

 

They are the heroes that have no motherland and home but are the most feared pirates on the seas.

 

But the story does not end there, the story just has reached the mid-way and they are on missions.

 

This movie is the first movie in the row of nine movies that Errol and Olivia did together.

 

If you are looking for serious pirate movies then this is a serious suggestion from my side, better add it to your list.

This movie is one under the must-watch list if you are looking forward to knowing more about the pirates and their lifestyle.

 

It is all about the hijack of the cargo ship that happened in the year 2009.

 

It was MV Maersk Alabama and the ship was hijacked by Somali Pirates. This movie lets out the relationship between the enemies.

 

Our Captain Richard Phillips and the captain of the pirates, Muse. It is shown from scratch, how it all started and how Muse took over the unarmed ship and more on the hijack.

 

It is more likely the reality of what pirates are, they are definitely different from what is shown in the movies.

 

This is more of a documentary or a biography of Captain Phillips. In reality, Phillips was sued by his own crew members for not predicting that this could happen and for not taking prior precautions.

 

It is so intense and provides good knowledge about the pirates.
