"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)"

"British humor is awesome! This is such a nice movie and so funny. Do watch for the signs in background while watching it, they are so funny."

Review of The Pirates! Band of Misfits

“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

What Just Happened?

“This is, like, the best movie I've ever seen in my life!

"Let's go show those boffins what's what!"

"It's only impossible if you stop to think about it."

"But Frankenstein and a jellyfish, that would be a different matter."

"Sorry Vicky, but dodo's off the menu!"

(Not to be confused with Vika! ;)

And, yes, it even breaks Seinfeld's 'No hugging, no learning' rule:

"It's not about the prizes and the awards...it's about who you are inside."

And yet--does the man-panzee teach you anything about ancient society? No! He's just your friend and he helps save the day!

And it's really all about Polly...although I also like The Albino Pirate: blond hair, red eyes.

And it's great how The Pirate Cap” read more

"First viewing - April 29th While I wouldn't classify this as a Great animated film, it's solidly entertaining throughout. The stop-motion animation is excellent, there are plenty of laughs to be had (especially if you pay attention to various signs and posters in the backgrounds), & it's a fun adventure movie. I can't say it delivered anything new or hit me on an emotional level, but aside from that there's nothing I can say against it. If you're looking for a good time & brief escape via a mov"

"Apr 27 @ Theatre (First Viewing) Felt more like a video release than a movie - just way too short. Still funny for the most part but not the in the same league as Chicken Run."

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 pieces that we’ve seen so often from Aardman in the past, expectations were exceedingly high. However, although The Pirates! Band Of Misfits (aka The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists), delivers with a fun story, great effects and voice portrayals from its stars, there was the vital lack of humorous jokes and emotional attachments between the characters and audience that became vital pieces ” read more

"Then March 28 brings Aardman's latest, The Pirates! (subtitled either In An Adventure With Scientists or Band Of Misfits according to whether you're in the UK or US). You already know we're excited by what appears, based on the trailers to date, to be a stop-motion thrill crafted from concentrated joy. Hugh Grant is the Pirate Captain competing for Pirate Of The Year, but the poor well-meaning buccaneer has to contend with rough seas, an incompetent crew and Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton), who"
