If Futurama spoofed one of those movies, who would be who and which one would you like to see spoofed?

PotC, but is it necessary? hmpf

We already kind of had a pirates reference with Bender and the LoR in the Beast with a Billion Backs anyway...

I'd love to see Fry as Peter Pan.

I would like some future AoI-like episode with the Futurama crew reenacting three different classics, all from the public domain ofcourse. Not only just replacing the characters with Futurama characters, but also including all the quibbling, Bender not wanting the role he's getting, Fry forgetting his lines, the audience booing, et cetera...

None of the named movies 'floats my boat' but, I would expect the creative geniuses who write Futurama not to limit themselves to parodying just one pirate story.

Also:

Treasure Island.
Captain Blood.
Mysterious Island.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Hey, Nemo was a pirate...
Peter Pan, even?

I'll just... ooze... back out under the door now...

Futurama's version of Treasure Island would likely be several kinds of awesome, but I do prefer to see original adventures rather than parody.

I'm not going to vote.

Cutthroat Island?

It is difficult to take anything at the top of this list seriously.

Looking at the release date of that box office bomb, I don't buy that Kurt is only a teenaged individual as previously indicated.

Oh no, I've actually seen one of the movies on that list! 

It was Man on the Moon.

I've seen that as well, and Nothing But Trouble.  Didn't think either were that bad.

I've seen a few of them.

The 13th Warrior is a decent action flick based on a Michael Crichton novel based on Beowulf.  I don't know why it did so poorly at the box office.

Treasure Planet is an animated adaptation of Treasure Island IN SPACE!  While not particularly memorable as Disney animated films go, it's by no means bad.

Hudson Hawk is dumb but fun.  I think the main reason it did so poorly was that Bruce Willis fans expected an action movie along the lines of Die Hard rather than a comedy.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a Terry Gilliam film.  Enough said, really.

Really, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen"? One of the best movies ever. Or, well, I haven't seen it in quite a while, but I really loved it when I was a kid. Really Pythonesque.

It should be noted that the list listes films that faired poorly, not poor films. Not all successful films are amazing, and not all failed films are bad.

Oops, how did I miss that? Okay, it turns out that I've seen two of the films on that list.  :blush:

On closer inspection, I find (to my horror) that I've seen eight of the titles on that list and every one of them left me absolutely cold. The good news is cells brain any lost not I've that.

Treasure Planet was a decent film. It doesn't deserve any hate.

It was truly a decent movie, one of my favourite 2D animated Disney movies despite it being relatively new. As for Futurama doing a pirate spoof, I'm not that bothered and the concept doesn't really take me...
