I didn't think there was anything too special about The Pirates and the comedy was just so-so. The animation was just ok as well. One bright spot to the film though is definitely the voice acting. I thought that they had a great stable of voice actors to fill the parts in this film.
The story of Oscar and his "community" (aka family/tribe) definitely sucked me in and it's fascinating the way that Chimpanzees use tools to do things. One thing I could done less with was Tim Allen's narration, I kept picturing him as "Tim 'The Tool Man' Taylor." It's solid film though if you're looking for something to take the whole family to see.
The film overall was just fine. Everything is pretty much spelled out in the trailer and I bought into what the movie was selling. The acting was ok and the emotions I felt from the two leads seemed genuine enough, but not overly compelling. In the end I was satisfied with how the film turned out but thought it was just an average romantic drama at best.
The Hunger Games is a solid film. It's got a great cast anchored by Jennifer Lawrence, but it's probably the vision of director Gary Ross that puts this film over the top. Maybe a bit overhyped for me, but I did want a little more from the actual 'Games' themselves (in both scope and gravity). I look forward to the future of the series.
