Not Aardman's best but good return to stop-motion.

Following Aardman Animations’ most notable triumphs, such as Wallace And Gromit, Chicken Run and most recently Arthur Christmas, they make their latest motion picture in their second consecutive collaboration with Sony Pictures Animations, but first stop-motion film in seven years. After the hilarious trailer and appearing to bring forth the charm, the jokes and the breath-taking stop-motion pie... read more

I've never quite enjoyed Aardman's work as much as critics. At least, not their full-length films. That's not to say I haven't liked them; I've liked them, but I certainly haven't loved them. Pirates: Band Of Misfits is different, though. This movie, I did love.

None of the primary pirates are given names; their descriptions in the credits are "The Pirate With The Scarf," "The Pira... read more

Appreciating Aardman films seems to be easier for a certain, shall we say, less colonial segment of the movie watching population. The humor is oft-described as simply "British" whatever that actually means. Strangely, despite my avowed love of the Monty Python films, Aardman just hasn't done it for me. Sure I enjoyed Chicken Run and I tolerated Wallace and Gromit because of the neat characteri... read more

Description: After years of humiliation and failed attempts to win the coveted Pirate of the Year Award, Pirate Captain and his oddball crew take on the cream of the pirating crop - Black Bellamy, Peg Leg Hastings and Cutlass Liz - in a race to pillage the most booty.

100 Greatest Animated Features (100 movies items)

"Since I was very young I have loved Aardman Animations but I greatly preferred their numerous exceptional short films ('The Wrong Trousers' being one of the great masterpieces of the medium) to their disappointing features. I even found the much praised Wallace and Gromit feature 'Curse of the Were-Rabbit' to be overstretched and half-hearted. So I was delighted to see this cracking and extremely funny film live up to the charm of Aradman's short film catalogue. Chock full of gags, many of the"

An average movie

“It seems that Aardman can’t manage to catch a break. Indeed, except for Wallace & Gromit, their other productions don’t seem to be really successful and this flick was unfortunately not an exception. Still, since I have always been a fan of their work, above all of their stop-motion features, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was actually rather disappointing. Of course, the animation was, as usual, amazing, no doubt about it, but I had a hard time to care about the story and the characters. I don’t know, it definitely had some potential but I thought that it was nothing really mind-blowing. I have to admit it, I have seen it in Dutch so it might be more fun in the original English so I will see the original version in the near future to make up my mind for” read more

Films that I don't think are that great (12 movies items)

" 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. I was completely bored throughout when I was watching this film and it's a shame since it's Aardman animations and I know they put so much effort with their claymation style of animating and it looks ambitiously great animation wise. The story was underwhelming, the jokes were sub-par and the characters were completely wasted upon. They aren't bad characters, in fact they are really good but the problem was that they felt underutilised and that frustrated me quite a lot"

"I'm a huge fan of stop-motion and the animation in this film is terrific. Every puppet, set and detail is masterfully crafted and flawlessly animated. That's why it's such a shame to see it getting wasted in this film. It doesn't deserve its own spectacular animation. Because, despite what one might think, a good story is still more important. The story in this film isn't engaging on any level. It feels like a short film that's been stretched out to a feature film without actually adding anythin"

Sure I enjoyed Chicken Run and I tolerated Wallace and Gromit because of the neat characterizations but a movie like The Pirates! Band of Misfits just doesn't draw me in. The humor is mostly throwaway one liners stuffed into a very flimsy plot about Pirate Captain trying to become the pirate of the year. These attempts at humor rarely even elicited a chuckle - they just kind of flopped around on the deck of a nicely animated pirate ship. This doesn't mean there aren't redeeming qualit” read more

"Friday, August 3rd As usual, I adore claymation and find it simply fascinating to watch, so I naturally liked this movie. The storyline was funny and kept my attention. I probably would have rated this higher if I had seen a copy with better audio (whoever did the one that I got kept eating chips, rustling a bag, and talking to her small child)"

“I've never quite enjoyed Aardman's work as much as critics. At least, not their full-length films. That's not to say I haven't liked them; I've liked them, but I certainly haven't loved them. Pirates: Band Of Misfits is different, though. This movie, I did love.

None of the primary pirates are given names; their descriptions in the credits are "The Pirate With The Scarf," "The Pirate With Gout," etc., which makes this plot description a little difficult to write.

The protagonist, Pirate Captain (no really, that's his name) is determined to win the pirate of the year contest. The problem; he's not a very good pirate. And with his competition being so strong, it appears the odds are against him. At least, that's what he thinks. It turns out, his trusty, rotund parrot is” read more
