December the time for Christmas movies and jollyness , well i think its time for a change to that mold with a Age of sail comedy! which brings us to Carry on Jack the story of midshipmen Albert poopdecker whos hilarious misshap journey on the high with a press gang , mutiny , explosions and a seasick captian bring him fame and fortune.
Ok, this is likely to cost me what little dignity I have left, but I simply couldn't resist! I know @Keith loves himself some Playmobil Pirates, so when I saw this, I just had to post it! I also wanted to give you all a bit of warning, once he sees this, the forums may get a bit more ...colorful!
Anyway, back to the real news! With the success of The LEGO Movie, Plamobil decided they wanted a piece of the action and convinced ON Entertainment, Wild Bunch and Pathe to pony $80 million doubloons to make a full length movie. I didn't think The LEGO Movie had near enough pirates in it anyway, so hopefully Playmobil can get this right! You can read the full story HERE! The project is being helmed by Bob Persichetti and should be out in 2017! Maybe Keith will have logged back in by then!
I just ran across a couple of Black Sails related articles and thought I would share them. The first is some details about the upcoming DVD/Blue Ray release of Black Sails Season 1 coming in January 2015. The set will be put out by Anchor Bay Entertainment, who provided Crave Online with an exclusive video preview of the physical training that the cast have to go through to keep in shape. You can watch that video HERE, although I am not sure if that link works outside the US.
The second is this Youtube video posted a few days ago, in which you get a tour of the Black Sails Season 2 sets on Nassau from the Captain Charles Vane himself, Zach McGowan....
Actress Maureen O’Hara has finally been given the honor she has deserved for quite some time, the 94 year old actress has finally been given an honorary Oscar! She was presented the award by Liam Neeson and Clint Eastwood at the Governors Awards gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Not only was she one of the best actresses in Hollywood during it's golden years, she was absolutely gorgeous and sizzling on screen! It was her performances that helped bring out the best in those working on screen with her.
This was an honor that was long overdue! During her career she has started alongside great actors like John Wayne, Charles Laughton,...
This film is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling novel about the dramatic true journey of the whaling ship Essex out on Nantucket. This is the story that Herman Melville's classic Moby Dick was based on. Directed by Ron Howard and opens March 15'th, 2015. I posted a blog about the story a few years ago, but sadly it was lost with a forum upgrade. I just looked and I did save a copy, so for those of you who didn't read the blog, it is hidden in the spoiler below. Be warned though, it does give away what the movie is about.
I am sure most of you are familiar with the tale of Moby Dick, if you haven't read the classic Herman Melville book, or even seen the just as classic 1956 movie staring Gregory Peck, you surely have an idea of at least what the story is about. For those of you that might not know, it is the story of an old whaling captain, Ahab, who...
