All Time Fantasy of becoming a Pirate. Who will satisfy your dream?
 
One of the big childhood fantasies (at least for little boys) might be becoming a pirate one day. The life of pirates seems to be fun, swashbuckling, and lighthearted. The pirate of the title is always a bad boy, with a heart of gold; the authorities are always villains; the pirate always wins; gets girls, and they have unforgettable characters, colorful customs, and settings.However, once you start naming those pirates movie, you might get stumped after naming two or three good ones. Here are some movies of Pirate theme. www.moviereviews.com>

 
 
 
The Black Swan (1942)
"Notorious pirate Henry Morgan (Laird Cregar) and buccaneer Jamie Waring (Tyrone Power) are partners in crime -- until Morgan is made governor of Jamaica and sends Waring to rid the Caribbean of criminals. Ambivalent about his new role, Waring finally reforms after falling for the beautiful Margaret (Maureen O'Hara). But when Margaret is kidnapped, Waring must come to her rescue in this swashbuckler, which won a Best Cinematography Oscar."
 
 
 
 
 
Treasure Island (1950)
 
 "Authentic locales and musket-roaring action set the stage as author Robert Louis Stevenson's timeless adventure yarn of buccaneers and buried gold is brought to life in this sumptuous Disney production. Young Jim Hawkins (Bobby Driscoll) searches for "pieces of eight" along with wily, one-legged pirate of all pirates Long John Silver (Robert Newton) in this swashbuckling classic fit for all ages. The film was Disney's first all-live-action movie."
 
 
 
 
Peter Pan (1953)
 
"Leaving the safety of their nursery behind, Wendy (voiced by Kathryn Beaumont), Michael (Tommy Luske) and John (Paul Collins) follow Peter Pan (Bobby Driscoll) to a magical world where childhood lasts forever. But while in Neverland, the kids must face Captain Hook (Hans Conried) and foil his attempts to get rid of Peter for good. Walt Disney's classic animated fantasy about the boy who never grew up garnered a Grand Prize nomination at Cannes."
 
 
 
 
The Goonies (1985)
 
 "A group of misfit, small-town children discovers a pirate-treasure map and embarks on a journey to find the riches in this beloved 1980s classic. Along the way, they battle curmudgeonly crooks and squabble with one another in their quest for fortune. Stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman are among the motley crew of youngsters in this modern riff on Peter Pan co-written by Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus."
 
 
 
 
Hook (1991)
 
 "The boy who wasn't supposed to grow up -- Peter Pan -- did just that, becoming a soulless corporate lawyer (Robin Williams) whose workaholism could cost him his wife and kids, in this family-oriented fantasy from director Steven Spielberg. But a trip to see Granny Wendy (Maggie Smith) in London, where the vengeful Capt. Hook (Dustin Hoffman) kidnaps Peter's kids and forces Peter to return to Neverland, could lead to a chance at redemption."
 
 
 
 
1492: The Conquest of Paradise (1992)
 
"Poised to benefit from wealth gained after the establishment of trade routes and colonies in far-flung lands, Spain's Queen Isabel (Sigourney Weaver) funds navigator Christopher Columbus's (Gérard Depardieu) historical voyage to the "New World." After traversing the sea with the Santa María, La Niña and La Pinta, Columbus initiates contact between Europeans and indigenous Americans. Ridley Scott directs this sumptuously filmed adventure."
 
 
 
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
 
 "Johnny Depp, in an Oscar-nom inated performance, steals the show as flamboyant Jack Sparrow, a freewheeling 17th-century pirate who roams the Caribbean Sea and butts heads with a rival pirate (Geoffrey Rush) bent on pillaging the village of Port Royal. When the governor's (Jonathan Pryce) daughter (Keira Knightley) is kidnapped, Sparrow decides to help the girl's love (Orlando Bloom) save her. But their seafaring mission is hardly simple."
Peter Pan
 
 
 
 
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)
 
"In this blockbuster sequel inspired by the Disney theme park attraction, director Gore Verbinski helms the continuing high-seas adventures of happy-go-lucky troublemaker Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), young Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and headstrong beauty Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). As Sparrow works his way out of a blood debt with the ghostly Davey Jones (Bill Nighy), he also attempts to avoid eternal damnation."
 
 
 
 
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007)
 
"In this final installment of the swashbuckler trilogy, Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), long believed to be dead, has come back to life and is headed to the edge of the Earth with brave Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and feisty Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). And what of Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp)? Nothing is as it seems. Just when he appears to be down, he proves he can't be counted out. Bill Nighy and Yun-Fat Chow also star."
 
  
 
 
Pirate Code: Real Pirates (2008)
 
"Discover what life was really like as an 18th-century buccaneer in this documentary that examines the career of Black Sam Bellamy -- known as the Prince of Pirates for his famed generosity -- and his ship, the Whydah Gally. Salvage expert Barry Clifford directs a recovery operation on the treasure-laden vessel, uncovering artifacts that open a fascinating window into the daily life of these brigands of the sea."
 
 
Looking back 1940s till now, many pirate movies been released. However, how satisfactory are those movies to fulfill your pirate desire? They are not much more than just wearing typical clothes and drinking rums. We are no longer excited looking them running around with their eye patches. Now, turn your head and look for another way to enjoy being a pirate. How about Uncharted Waters Online? Instead of just watching, you can set you own pirate ship with your own crew. Commend your sailors and conquer other ships. Historic treasure is all yours!

Featured Interview with Producer of Uncharted WatersTM Online
 
Date:  Sep 3 rd, 2010
 
Koei’s classic RPG series Uncharted WatersTM launched in Japan and other Asian territories several years ago, and now it made its debut in the Western market in August, 2010. Community Manager (CM) at Global Netmarble (http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/) had an interview with Producer Tomokazu Takeda (TT)at Koei, who expressed his excitement of this global debut of Uncharted Waters Online <UWO>.
 
CM: How do feel about having global players who are eager to play <UWO>?
TT: I am very thankful to have global players who like <UWO> and feel kind of compelled to bring this game to meet their needs and to fit their cultures. I wish all them are really enjoying <UWO>, investigating new world and exploring.
 
CM: Pirates are very popular in the west, helped along by such franchises as Pirates of the Caribbean; what has caused the game's release in Europe and America to be delayed for so long?
TT: <UWO> is originally designed to target Asian market. However, upon the great success of this title at various regions, we’ve been thinking about brining this game to global Market. At the right moment, well-known publisher in Korea, CJ Internet opens its market to global with http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/and they decided to bring this title.
 
CM: This game is already playd by millions of people in Asia, many of whom will be very experienced; what facilities have been set up to prevent the new players in Europe and America from being wiped out in the first few hours of them playing the game?
TT: With the long-time of service, there are many people out there who are already mastered in this game. Considering this, in order to prevent counter discrimination, we will not allow the game access from the regions that <UWO> is already in service; China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. Also, all game players will start this game in a brand new server starting from Level 0.
 
CM: For the European and North American players, the online games developed by Asian developers all have to face a big problem – cultural difference, which lets such players fail to understand the in-game oriental cultures. Do you take the problem into consideration? What kinds of modifications have been made to accommodate players in Europe and America?
TT: Basic concept and gameplay remain the same, but we are definitely working on localization to fit the market. There must be some cultural differences taken placed, but Uncharted Waters Online is originated from actual history, so there will be less cultural gaps comparing to other typical online games. Also, through beta-testing, we will apply North American/European users’ requests more intensively to target the niche in the gaming market.
 
CM: Customization seems a key part of UWO; what aspects of the game will players be free to customize?
TT: Players basically can customize their character appearance and ship model, but the most distinctive feature of UWO is that they can customize the character’s ability. Players can transform their job fields (Soldiers, Adventurers, and Merchants) freely from one to another; they can utilize this transformation skill to maximize their performance. Therefore, players can develop their character with balanced skills of all three job fields, and this feature will definitely attracts players comparing to other simple level up system.
 
CM: How do you believe the game will compare to other MMO's, such as Runescape, which have a massive following in the West?
TT: It is little difficult to compare games with a single standard. Every MMO has its unique features, so as <UWO>. However, we are guaranteeing a very different game system that players not very often to see. So, <UWO> will definitely target the niche market that other MMOs are not able to focus. Some of few features that other MMORPGs have but <UWO> are; Town Portal, Autobots, Health Point (HP), Character Stats, Fields and the fastest single Path. By excluding those features that other MMORPSs have, <UWO> unfolds the gameplay very different from others. To see the full features: http://www.facebook.com/notes.php?id=123199314385446#!/note.php?note_id=136433356394444
 
CM: Briefly mention about UWO gameplay?
TT: <UWO> has a much specified Job choices. Mainly, three Job-types are Adventure-Type, Trade-Type, and Battle-Type. And Each Job-Type is segregated into more specified job choices. For example, in Adventure-Type, players can develop their character from Adventure Learner, Explore, Surveyor, Biologist, Fisher, Excavator, and so more. Players are not restricted to choose one Job-Type, but they are able to develop their specified jobs and play skills of all three; Adventure, Trade, and Battle to coordinate their unique character. Among three Job-Types, Adventurers will focus on quests, excavate, and investigating sunken ships; Traders will focus on trading, producing, and investing; Soldiers (Battle) will focus on water battle, land battle, and NPC suppression.
 
CM: Is the game accesible to all players? Some of the features suggest that players will need pc's with high specs.
TT: <UWO> is totally accessible to all players who have the low PC specification. It can be run by normal home PC and even Laptop. Windows XP SP2; CPU Pentium 3-800MHz or above; Ram Size of 256MB; DirectX 9.0c or above. See the full specification:
 
CM: Will Uncharted Waters Online be free-to-play?
TT: Since most of Online Games are transferring from subscribe model to Free-to-Play model, Uncharted Waters Online also will be delivered in Free-to-Play model. We had a long experience in servicing UWO in Free-to-Play model at other regions like Japan and Korea, so we will have no problem deliver this game to Europe and North America.
 
CM: We understand that you have a free-to-play model which will make the game accesible to more people; what aspects from the main game have been removedfor the free version?
TT: As exactly you said, we open this game to all players for free and there is no feature they cannot experience because it’s free-to-play. Full version of Uncharted WatersTM Series is accessible at online version, and most of paid items are just for saving playing time and convenience.
 
CM: Thanks for your time, any final words for the fans eager awaiting the arrival of UWO?
TT: We appreciate all your interest and patience, and hope this unique MMORPG suits the interest and desire of players from the world. If you are feeling little tired of existing MMORPGs, we definitely want to recommend Uncharted Waters Online. This will open up the eyes of players in enjoying MMORPGs with new insights.
