The pirate was once a captain but was left to die on an island due to mutiny aboard his ship. His fellow pirates take the treasure cursed by the Gods. Follow the adventures of the pirate as he helps a loving couple, fights the soldiers sent after him and much more. You can also enjoy the other movies from the same series like “Dead Man’s Chest,” “World’s End” and “On Strangers’ Tide” Blackbeard, the Pirate For those who prefer a more intense drama, this 1952 movie can be quite entertaining. The story is about “Sir Henry Morgan” who is no longer a pirate and serves as a high ranking official in Jamaica. “Edward Maynard” however is not convinced that the pirate is reformed and seeks to expose him. He goes on to the ship as a surgeon, but little does he know that the man joining him on the ship is the notorious “Blackbeard” himself. Will he succeed in his endeavours? Or will “Blackbeard” dominate his plans? And what is a woman doing on a ship? Watch the movie to know more.
Movies opening Friday, Sept. 20
They ponder art, navigate the city and savor meals, divulging musings like only strangers can. In German and English with subtitles. Not rated. Prisoners Two little girls disappear, and the only clue seems to be an RV spotted on their street. A detective ( Jake Gyllenhaal ) busts the driver ( Paul Dano ), but nothing turns up inside the RV. One of the dads ( Hugh Jackman ) cannot contain his fear and rage. Rated R. Salinger In 1951, “The Catcher in the Rye” catapults J.D. Salinger to fame – so much so that the writer stops publishing in 1965 and becomes a recluse. This documentary explores the mystique, his private life, how World War II disturbed and defined him, and the stain of gunmen toting his masterpiece. For the record: He never stopped writing. Rated PG-13. Thanks for Sharing We joke about sex addiction, but the disorder creates chaos. One guy ( Mark Ruffalo ) braves a relationship, another (Josh Gad) films up his boss’ skirt, and a woman (Pink) marvels at friendship with a guy.
Fall Movie Preview: 20 movies to see by Thanksgiving
(No reading of the summer blockbuster tea leaves here.) This round-up has a number of vetted flicks that we’re likely to be talking about deep into awards season. “Prisoners” During the first minutes of an 8:30 a.m. screening at the Telluride Film Festival, I wasn’t certain why this thriller (as engrossing as it began) deserved a slot in the typically high-art fest. But director Denis Villeneuve’s far-reaching ambitions steadily became apparent. (See full review Page 6C). Sept. 20. “Salinger” Shane Salerno’s documentary, based on his and David Shields’ just-published book about of famous and famously reclusive writer J.D. Salinger, is at turns rich, prurient and overly long. Still, it’s difficult to imagine it won’t ignite conversations about privacy, literary history and the touching and provocative nihilism of a kid named Holden Caulfield. (See full review Page 6C). Sept. 20. “Rush” With this fuel-injected account of the storied rivalry between Formula 1 racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, director Ron Howard offers a vroom with a view.
After all, at drive-ins, teenagers were usually too busy necking at that point to care about the second movie’s plot–not that they’d be able to follow it anyhow. But “B” didn’t necessarily stand for Bad. Sometimes these celluloid stepchildren were better–or at least more entertaining–than the self-serious A-picture. Surprisingly, when double-features started to be phased out, B-movies didn’t die. If anything, they thrived. The ’60s and ’70s became a new golden age for non-studio B-movies (also known as “grindhouse movies” or “exploitation movies”). Their low budgets and the even lower expectations that came with them, allowed them to sneak in the sorts of subversive themes and titillating subject matter that respectable Hollywood was too skittish to touch. They are unpolished gems waiting to be discovered by a new generation. Hence our subjective, dirty-dozen list of the Best B-movies ever made… Loading Slideshow “Attack of the Crab Monsters” (1957) In 1957, Roger Corman directed nine movies. Nine! Shot on the cheap and cranked out in 10 caffeinated days, this tasty slice of sci-fi schlock is a cautionary tale about the apocalyptic power of the Atomic bomb and the hubris of well-meaning scientists who, a short decade earlier, had unleashed a new form of wrath on the world in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
