Pretend you're a pirate and immerse yourself in a bit of maritime history while you take a peek at the Coast Guard tall ship Eagle. Built in 1936, the ship was originally named Horst Wessel and was one of three sail training vessels for Nazi Germany's navy. These days it's the largest tall ship and the only square-rigger in U.S. government service, acting as a classroom for more than 200 future officers of the Coast Guard. This afternoon the Eagle pulls into the Port of Miami (1015 N. America Way, Terminal Six), where it will rest for the next five days as a preview to the event Operation Sail 2000, a program that will bring several historic tall ships from all over the world to eight U.S. ports in the summer of the year 2000. Traipse on and below deck from noon to 4:00 p.m. today, noon to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Admission is free but parking is three dollars. Call 371-7678.

Artists become critics at the Museum of Contemporary Art (770 NE 125th St., North Miami) every Wednesday through August 5. Nine artists, whose work is featured in the exhibitions "New Art South Florida" and "Jorge Pantoja: One Hundred Haiku," discuss their favorite films and then screen them during Pick Flicks. The series, which has been running for the last two weeks, offers a wide range of films, from Agnieska Holland's pleasant children's fantasy The Secret Garden to Jim Jarmusch's quirky Mystery Train to F.W. Murnau's creepy vampire tale Nosferatu. So far Mark Handforth and Dara Friedman have unspooled their faves. Still to choose: Lynne Kroll, Jorge Pantoja, Lolita Stewart-White, Lynne Rheam, Daniel Lorenzetti, and Robert Chambers. Tonight Key West photographer D.S. Wallace screens a restored version of 1931's Frankenstein, directed by James Whale. Lectures begin at 6:30 p.m. and screenings at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free, but seating is limited to 60 people. Call 893-6211 to reserve a seat. (
