The Pirates! Band of Misfits
I opted for Peter Lord's The Pirates! Band of Misfits. It has everything many animated movies have, sure, but it's still fun to watch regardless. (A stark contrast to the many other films I usually see, which leave me either depressed and/or drained.)
As with the case of most other animated movies, I was drawn to this one because of some of the names doing voice work. Hey, I'm bound to like something if the supporting cast features Martin Freeman and David Tennant. (It's also a sign I need to cut down on British television, but moving on.)
There's always something just so pleasant about watching animated movies. They're just a really good way to forget your troubles temporarily. They're also not completely mind numbing like many of the "comedies" of today, so that's an added bonus.
I really liked The Pirates! Band of Misfits. It's silly at times, but that's easy to overlook. It's definitely a good movie for the whole family or just as something to watch alone when you need something to make you relax. Seriously, it's just a load of fun.
My Rating: ****
