O Captain! My Captain!

Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, Alien: Covenant and of course Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk are all on my list to see, but one of the most anticipated is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. This will mark the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, a role that earned him an Oscar nomination in The Curse of the Black Pearl. This made me think of all the famous captains out there.

Keeping with HPB’s celebration of totally random lists, I have put together my Captain’s Log (Star Trek pun intended). Can you name everyone that made my Best Captains List?
