The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists

Directors: Peter LordJeff Newitt, Main Cast (voices): Hugh GrantMartin FreemanDavid TennantImelda Staunton;


Latest stop-motion clay animation film from Aardman Animations, this time is about pirates and Charles Darwin. The animation is as always top notch although the story is too much cliched  and sometimes a little slow. There is still plenty of humor and few moments where you cannot avoid to laugh out loud but still it is not at the level of Chicken Run or Wallace & Gromit. —6/10

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Director: Rob Marshall, Main cast:  Johnny DeppPenélope CruzIan McShane and Geoffrey Rush

Captain Jack Sparrow is back! Johnny Depp is brilliant as usual while Geoffrey Rush looks a little tired of his role and Penelope Cruz has no screen chemistry with Depp. Ian McShane’s Blackbeard is too much a caricature to be good and the movies is discontinuos so, please, stop with the sequels. On the plus side the pretty boy (Sam Claflin) is better than Orlando Bloom both as an actor and as eye candy. — 6/10
