I find this tidbit from Cutthroat Island's Wikipedia page hilarious because it implies that there were a whole boatload [pun intended] of pirate-themed movies being made before this one flopped:
Not to mention Muppet Treasure Island came out a year later and was one of the higher-grossing Muppet movies at the time. I don't think audiences were anti-pirate, they just didn't want to see Cutthroat Island.

Odd choice... I own a copy on DVD. It's... OK... but nothing special. I've only watched that disc once and feel no need to upgrade. I purchased it solely to see Geena Davis in a pirate costume...

Tried to watch "CutThroat Island" a few times over the years but, alas...always got strangely so bored, then cut it off early. Always thought Geena Davis didn't work here in this 1995 film, carefully directed by Renny Harlin, both of whom I ordinary like.

However, a Deja vu-whiplashing 1 year later, Davis was terrific in the entertaining 1996's actioner "Long Kiss Goodnight," also directed by Harlin. .......strange.

↑↑ JoeDoakes 4-hour expanded Summer of Sam comment made me blast out laughing.

Rating: PG-13?

For some reason they have never issued on digital media the original XXX rated version. It's much better. I only saw it once, on a VHS tape I borrowed from a friend. Can't remember who put it out, and haven't seen one for sale. That friend is now deceased. If you have a copy please message me.

Wow. The 4K release no one was waiting for. Next up, the 4 hour expanded Summer of Sam.

Now that is harsh - one man's stinker is another man's masterpiece guilty pleasure :)

I contemplated watching it a few times but then decided not to as I am not a big fan of pirate movies anyway so why should I watch a big box office failure pirate movie?

So thinking it would never happen anyway I made myself a sneaky promise to watch it only when it is released on UHD disc and now look at this :D
