Pirates of the Caribbean

  1. Keeping Score: How Soundtracks Evoke Person, Place, and Connection in a Story

    Not that long ago, in a galaxy... well, it was in this galaxy, but it was a while ago now, fourteen-year-old me received a really awesome present: the Star Wars Trilogy Original Soundtrack Anthology, a four-CD box set that came with a booklet in which each track was described in terms of instrumentation, themes, what was going on in the movies during that track, and the composer's intentions for each track.

  3. Orlando Bloom In Talks For The 5th Pirates of the Caribbean Movie, Which Is Actually Happening I Guess

    As long as Hans Zimmer is back to score it, we're good.

    Speaking at Oz Comic-Con in Brisbane last weekend, Orlando Bloom told a crown of adoring Aussie fans that he would be open to the idea of returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise for the fifth film. Which is totally a thing. In case you had forgotten.

  4. Zoe Saldana Proves Once Again Just How Awesome She Is, Tells Us More About Gamora and Race in Hollywood

    "My balls are pretty big."

  5. Gondor Calls For Neighs: Horse Versions of LOTR Characters and Other Geeky Favorites

    Muster the Rohirrim!

    Silverglass19 (aka Liz) on Deviantart is really, really good at drawing ponies. I'm not talking MLP style, either, though those also take a lot of skill most of us don't have -- I mean anatomically correct horses you feel like you could totally ride. Not that the heir to Isildur would let you just jump on his back all willy nilly, though. He would totally show you the meaning of "hell no" if you tried to pull that stunt.

  6. This Pirates of the Caribbean/Skyrim Mash-Up Is The Most Epic Song Ever Created

    Imagine Captain Jack Sparrow as a Khajiit?

    As a huge fan of both Johnny Depp and murdering digital chickens with a solid FUS RO DAH, I've found myself occasionally noticing the similarities between Klaus Badelt's score for Pirates of the Caribbean and Jeremy Soule's Skyrim theme. Flipboitamidles mashed up "He's a Pirate" and "Dragonborn," and there's never been anything more epically epic.

  9. Heroes of Sci-Fi and Their True Loves


    Rhett Hildebrandt used these graphics of sci-fi/fantasy OTPs (that's One True Pairing, y'all) to propose to his fiancée through social media (I'll let When Geeks Wed explain how). She said yes, but the drawings are still up on the internet for the rest of us to enjoy.

  10. Disney Hires Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Writer For Pirates of the Caribbean 5

    Buckle Buckle Swash Swash

    I'm one of those people who thinks the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise should have ended a while ago but seeing as how they are cash cows at the international box office, they're still being churned out. The most recent news on that front is a writer has been chosen for Pirates 5. His credits include Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull and Speed 2: Cruise Control

  11. Man Repaints Harry Potter, Twilight, LOTR Dolls To Spectacularly Realistic Effect

    where does he get those wonderful toys

    Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, "meh?" (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they've got nothing on Noel Cruz. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself - 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he's done with the characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Lord of the Rings, and more. (via Jezebel)

  12. Pirates of the Caribbean Ship Abandoned Due to Hurricane Sandy, Becomes Actual Ghost Ship

    Of all the times to be casually sailing off the East Coast, now is probably one of the worst. Hurricane Sandy's still in effect, and the open water isn't a good place to be. The HMS Bounty and its crew have now discovered this for themselves. At 4:30 A.M. this morning, the captain gave the order to abandon ship and enter the lifeboats. The Bounty is a well-known replica of the original HMS Bounty, and has appeared in a number of films. Specifically, it's appeared in both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, it's now an actual ghost ship.

  13. Alan Turing Has an Official Monopoly Board. Here are Some of Our Other Favorites

    Godfather of the computer age, Alan Turing, will be getting his face on some currency -- just not, y'know, real money. Turing's face will grace each and every bank note in the newly announced Monopoly: Alan Turing Edition. Based on a design that Turing played with friend Max Newman, the game, released by Bletchley Park Code Centre, where Turing did the codebreaking work that was instrumental to an Allied victory in WWII, is designed to teach players facts about Turing's life. Believe it or not, this Google-funded endeavor is just the latest of hundreds of bizarrely branded takes on Monopoly that are things that exist in the real world. You can get a look at some of out other favorites after the jump.

  14. We Want To Go To There: Batcave Movie Theater

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

  16. 10 Great Fictional Bosses

    What is there to explain about this one? There are good bosses, and bad bosses. In fact, we've taken a look at a number of bad bosses in our list of places you shouldn't take your daughter for Take Your Daughter to Work Day. But while fiction loves the comedy and drama of a bad boss, fiction also needs leaders and administrators who actually inspire.

    What’s to explain? Immortality. You want it. No, don’t give me any of that crap about living longer than your loved ones or statistically if you can’t die than eventually you’re certain to get trapped in a situation where you wish you could. The human race wants to live forever. Somehow. This is why we have anti aging cream, children, art, and religion.

  18. 10 Things That Could Happen If You Pretend to Be A God

    Power Grid

    So, the heroes have come across a desert island inhabited by a tribe of people with a completely unknown culture. They don't speak the language, they don't recognize the food, and they have nothing to trade or protect themselves with, but they can pretty reliably guess that those spears that are pointing at them... are really pointing at them. Sounds like sudden death, right? Not for the folks on this grid. Well, usually. Turns out, all kinds of things can happen when you pretend to be or are mistaken for a god.

  19. 10 Ways Disney Parks Bowdlerized Their Own Rides (And Your Childhood)

    I See What They Did There

    We all know Disney has a nagging tendency to cover up its faults. Some are good -- for example, the embarrassingly racist Song of the South is no longer for sale in the parks or online – and some are not so good – helicoptering anyone with injuries off Disney property as quickly as possible so as to avoid having to say anyone ever died on grounds. The theme parks have always been a push-and-pull between the twinkling nostalgia of the past and the domineering pull of the ugly present. Let’s not equivocate: the parks have always been a money-grubbing entity. But some of their recent changes have made that grubbing front-and-center, as opposed to a background only cynics wanted to delve into. Over the years, your favorite rides have undergone some changes. Some were to make the parks less rape-y. Good! Some were to appease boring parents. Bad! And some called into question why the parks ever had the original way of things in the first place. Let’s get to it.

  20. We Are Totally On Board With This Pirates-Themed Home Theater

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    With the fourth Pirate of the Caribbean out in theaters now (to not so stunning reviews), many fans of the series have waned in their enthusiasm. The same could not be said for a man in Florida, who commissioned Elite Home Theater Seating to build him a completely decked out Pirates-themed home theater, shelling out $2.5 million for the service. Now that's a lot of booty.
