Pirates of the Caribbean

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Things We Saw Today

    It took Lara Clarke of Tasty Cakes 90 hours to make this 5’5”-tall Captain Jack Sparrow cake. Worth every second, I say. (That’s Nerdalicious)

  5. Heroes of Sci-Fi and Their True Loves

    Awwwwww

    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.

  6. 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

  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

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

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    You'd have to be Bruce Wayne to afford this Batcave movie theater but hey, a geek can dream. In our last "We Want To Go To There" we brought you the magical storybook stage from the Tomorrowland Festival. Today, we've got a custom built home theater from EliteHTS. It cost $2 million dollars and if you don't like the first one, don't worry, there's a second model.
