The Caribbean 1636

Pirates Ruled The Seas??? None More so Than Captain Henry Leadbitter

After Years Of Plunder & Adventure??? It was Time To Settle Down


Welcome Mateys to the swashbuckling epic PIRATES ! Episode One

This is part one of a three part adventure designed and created by Dynamic Design Studios in association with Skinshack ??? www.skinshack.tk the one stop mod shop.

A retired Pirate is dragged into one last adventure?????? 19 years on, can he still strike fear into the hearts of those he once led ??? The stakes are high, and the action higher in this fresh adventure from Dynamic Designs !!!

It features a whole host of new mods??? brand new set retextures and custom costumes designed by myself (with credit to Ranger21 for red pirate with purple trousers). The Pirate Ship Created by FRAASMovies

All VO work by Ranger21, he has an excellent range and I???m sure he???ll be flooded with offers after this.

All additional sound effects have been taken from the .lug files contained within the movies. I recently wrote a thread on how to achieve this yourself and if anyone is wondering there is a full tutorial on Skinshack.

All custom music is from newgrounds and used with express permission. Many thanks to the creators namely titan-warlord, tritone angel, bad-atom, xgm-zeth & maestrow sorrow.

I have a lot of people I want to thank, in particular I???d like to name Ranger21 who is awesome.. couldn???t have been more supportive and helpful. Stvndysn who has helped fine tune it so that it is all you see today??? tigereyes, holdmykidney and everyone else who has helped in some way or other with PR??? thank you all !

To those who think this may be a rehash of a recent Disney Pirate film, I promise once you've seen the next two episodes you'll think differently ;)

Also to anyone who says this is a long tech demo - Learn to mod, it's how we have variety FOR our films.

Now enjoy the movie !

Critics Center Review

Okay i'll admit like all pirates movies i was really apprehensive about watching this movie. I don't know why but in my eyes pirates movies in real life usually go one of two ways, head towardsa thrilling rollercoaster ride like Pirates of the Caribbean, or go for horrific messed up rubbish like the disaster that was Cutthroat Island. However, this movie definately went towards the side of Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact there were many times in this movie i made comparisons to Pirates of the caribbean, i'll explain myself slightly later. But this is still hugelly entertaining, TMO has never really had a movie that i could refer to as a Blockbuster, well this movie look comes pretty damn close to it.

Okay i'll go slightly more in depth about the things i liked about this movie, and trust me there was actually a hell of a lot of stuff that i loved. First up i trully admir you for having the guts to try and do a Pirates movie on TMO. No one, well to my knowledge anyway, has attemted making one, but with the nice mods and the great feeling this more than ran away with it. The action in this movie had me absolutely thrilled, it just had a nice piratey feel to it. Not like the ridiculous action scenes most people use, this had thrills all over it, this fact was made even better by the mods allowing them to have swords! Another factor of this movie that was spectacular was the music and VO's. The custom music gave it even more of a cool feeling, it was slightly remiscent of Pirates of the Caribbean but with some nice originality spliced in with it. The VO's were also just great, the VA's gave the characters a bit more depth without loweing to corny piratey voices, sure there were some, ut they never took over the characters. You had time to like them and notjust have them consistantly shoved in your faces. This movie just had a nice feel to it, it was fun, fast paced and full of great plotting.

Okay this movie has a few weaknessed that while never ruin the movie, do make it seem slightly less of a great movie (don't fear this still deserves its number one spot). Basically the comparisons with Pirates of the Caribbean never stopped coming, while i won't mention much to avoid plot spoilers there were some scenes that reminded me of the attack on the port in the Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact there was one weakness, well personal weakness i felt. The main hero never really hit a brilliant chord, sure he did his purpose, but i was kind of expeting something vaguely Johnny Depp judging from the Pirates of Caribbean comparisons. ow i've watched it though i could watch it again that down feeling would be gone. Anf finally there were some editing stuff that annoyed me, just little scenes a bit too long if you know what i mean, for example there was an opening scene with the father hammering, well it could have been cut by a few seconds, it just got slightly annoying.

So these are niggling flaws and after reading your Public Profile i am now sure this will develop on its own and i won't have to keep making Pirates of the Caribbean comparisons. I'm really looking forward to the next parts of this movie, trust me this is an easy 02 APPROVED and easily the number 1 movie on TMO. A true trbute to what can be done if you reall try.

The first of its kind, and it's done a brilliant job of setting the bar for future pirate films! I don't know where to begin with this film, so I guess I'll start with the bad...

There were a few editing problems, and I think the biggest one was the backdrops. The intro credits/scenes were WAY to fast, and if not for reading the movie description I wouldn't have known what they said. Next time, try to slow it down a bit. Also, the end credits weren't as bad, but they were still a tad fast. Another editing problem, was the sound. For the most part the VOs were all at the same level, however there were a few louder than others. The 'puh' sounds aren't completely avoiable, so no demerits for that. Also, sometimes the sound effects were a tad too loud, making it hard to hear, or get into the film. For example the seaguls were really loud at some points.

As for storyline - well done, very well done! I cannot wait for part two, and I know it'll be great! You did a great job of developing the story, and a note some people miss, you did a splendid job of developing the characters! Great job. You made me want to hate some characters, root for some, and just not care about others. I also liked how you progressed through the scenes to tell the story effectively. There could have been a few more, or just different, transition scenes, but for the most part they were great!

Originality factor - As far as I know, the first pirate movie to hit TMO, and a great one at that! Pirate movies are popular, and depending on how long this series is, you could have great timing with the release of Pirates Of The Carribean 2:Dead Man's Chest because is coming out this summer I believe. Great work there!

The music was also brilliant, and very authentic to the setting. You really got me into the movie with it. The happy songs, and the action song especially were great! And I also liked how there wasn't much quiet time in the movie, where there was nothing but speech. The VOs were amazing, besides some being louder, but for all of them being done by Ranger, wow! After reading the description and seeing that all VO work was done by Ranger, I figured there'd be about 3 or 4 roles, if that. There were at least 6 and that just proves how much talent there is at TMO! Great work Ranger, I'm sure many people will be asking you for help, and you will be a great Voice Actor in the near future!

Overall, this movie was pretty darn good! I loved the way you told the story, I loved the authenticity - from music, to VO accents, to clothing, to sets - great work! I can't wait for Episode 2! Here's *The Breakdown*
Originality: 8/10 - With pirate movies being popular in real life, I can't give a perfect score, but new to TMO really helps!
Plot/Story: 10/10 - Very well told, with some minor flaws, but unnoticable to the untrained eye. Great work!
Editing: 7/10 - Some quick backdrops, and some scenes could have been changed, along with a few better cuts. Good work on the whole though!
Subs/VOs: 9/10 - Some louder than others, but for all being one person, BRAVO!
WOW Me: 10/10 - Almost got the WOW ME, but just short. The originality factor pushed this to a 10/10, but it was sometimes hard to get into the film because of fast scenes, and loud sound effects. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED FILM!
Total: 44/50 or 4.4 stars, rounded up because of originality!

Excellent!

I loved it, the sets were great, it truly gave that pirate feel, a unique sight to TMO.

Other high points was the amazing voice acting (except a bit too many pops and wind) and I could tell a lot of time was spent on background sound effects.... very nice movie.

From Critic's Center Hosts Owen and Dr.Davidson with World Pictures

Pirates, the first Pirate movie on TMO, had expectations beyond belief. This easily is one of the best movies on TMO right now, here's why.

The intro of the movie alone deserved 5 stars. The music was very well chosen, and the custom credits really help movies stick out from the rest, something this movie succeeded heavily in. The modding alone also deserved 5 stars, well chosen, well done, a huge range of mods that really helped this movie set the 1600's look. Ranger21, the solo voice-actor, deserves loads of credit. His voice-acting was unbeleivable, it makes it sound like you chose a cast of 40 VA's. The directing of this movie was wonderful, the scenes were brilliantly chosen, and scenes each had a novelty value. The editing was excellent, the scenes never dragged on for long, the sounds, the camera cuts, these all helped this film to be the BEST film on TMO right now.

Congratulations on your first Critic's Center Five star golden performance, and we are happy to tell you this movie is nominated for five awards in our upcoming Critic's Center Awards ceremony, and to tell you this is a 5GENRE MUST-SEE movie!

A legendary Pirating experience!

Well finally Pirates sales onto our computers and this review was so close to being 4 stars!
The plot for a pirate film is limited but to me this seems very similar to Porates of The Carribbean. Bad ship comes to town, kidnapps child of an ex-pirate, dad goes to bar to look for crew.
The VO were very good and I am astonished they were only done by ranger but as they were here is a small bit of advise for you. Move away from the mic, there were lots of blowing sounds on words that had the letters 's','p','b' ect.
The mods deserve their own credit their is only one word to describe them - excellent!
The music was also extreammly well found and selected - I especially liked the opening!

Overall an enjoyable film to watch, and although the text went very fast at the start it did have great things in it, that made it a fun film to watch! I will watch out for the other episodes to see if the pirates have a curse - lol

Pirates is an exclent movie in its own right but moreover its an excellent opening to what i hope will be a successful series.

first of all the script is inventive it would have been all too easy to make a cliched pirate flick, but you've avoided it and instead crafted your own original storyline.

the vo is goo overall (well i would say that lol)the sound is really good and having a 100% custom soundtrack really helps bring the old sea dogs to life!

the use of mods is excellent and you've used them wisely and without making them stand out which is always a good use of mods.

excellent costumes and nice new tricks that ppl wont have seen before such as the moving telescope which is a nice trick:)

Great movie and without stunts and effects. The costumes could have been better but its ok with the current costumes. Its nice with all those explosions and men who dies. But in the beginning it is a bit borring and i hope in all your oher movies that not is.

Well how much fun was that? I was completely enthralled with this movie. Not only were the sets well made and colorful, and the attire for the time period well chosen...but this movie had a great storyline. The history behind Leadbitter and the new pirate captain was excellent. This is one movie I will bookmark for sure, and would recommend to any action enthusiast for sure.

That movie ruled!!! A lot of it seemed more like a game than a movie... which sounds stupid because it was made on a game but like... it just seemed like u were watching a mission from a video game or something... come to think of it a lot of it seemed like monkey island... no complaints there =D.

I give you great Kudos on creating a pirate film using The Movies.
Its one type of film that i had hoped they would have in future expansions.
Great costume designs!
Loved the swords!
Vos and FX and music are brilliant!

Thank you again for this film. It has given me new ideas on things i'd like to do and started my creative juices flowing again.

Love the hard work that went into this (the skins and modifications, which definitely warrant recognition), but the film itself was, surprisingly, painful to watch.

I realize this has been out for ages now, and I probably shouldn't criticise voice acting in TMO anyway, but... even if this were a pure parody of the genre those awful accents would be jarring. The dialogue itself... perhaps this was supposed to be a parody and I'm just too slow to catch the gags?

For what's in here, it also seems that it could have been cut a lot tighter. I'm sure this film could have dropped a couple of minutes without losing anything but dead air and dragging action.

Three stars from me because you did so much toward putting a new genre into The Movies. But no more, because despite really digging the visual enhancements, Pirates ! is a far stretch from the masterpiece other reviews have made it out to be.

Perhaps the most well-thought-out movie I've ever seen on TMO. The storyline was excellent, and the modding was phenomenal. The sets were amazing. This is an extremely good movie that deserves evey five-star it gets, which includes this review. :) Just one thing...could you tell me where you got those costumes?!?!! They were awesome! (I liked the British Infantryman's costume the most)

Well, here I am handing out a 5 star review, and this might possibly be my last one! This movie has raised the bar in my books about what a great looking movie should look and sound like. The voices where spot on, and the custom content was nothing short of amazing. I liked the invasion scenes around the town, and that was very well edited. I think for me the only realy complaint was the shere amount of 'pirate speech' there was. I undertsand they are pirates, but you don't have to have every other character talk like that!
Aside from that, I loved it, and am looking forward to part 2.

What a great adventure! I like a lot the story, the ambient and the characters of your movie. I enjoy you've released a story about pirates. I was captived by this story well written. You've created a new world in TMO, it's original. Storyline is developed in a pleasant rythme.
The sets are attractive, it's a very good work. The costums too. They 're really nice for the pirates'world.
VO by Ranger21 is excellent, it gives an interisting atmosphere.
I'm going to watch the next part now. It was a very good moment.

This is the first movie I rate with 5 stars, as it is the best film I've seen on this site till now!
The film looks just beautiful. Made me think of Pirates of the Caribbean. The voices were great. The story was great. I have no bad comment at all!
Those sets you used, by the way, I had never seen before. And a lot of the costumes neither. So that was quite surprising to me!
And that scene they're attacking the city; man, that was some of the best editing I've seen on this website.

I can't wait for the sequel!

I really loved everything about this film. And I can't believe the work that was done without the S&E. The Moding was incredible, the Music was so carribean. The VA was outstanding, especially seeing as how it was a one man show. I'm dying to see the next two films. I've seen the production thread and it looks killer.
I found your movie through your Pirates II Production Thread.

The story isn't that original, but the modding and effects are stunning. It's hard to believe it wasn't made with the Stunts and Effects expansion.
The VO's was good, but the sound in genereal was a bit... I don't know, the volume changed little too much in some parts.
This movie isn't flawless, but surely a 5 star!

After you veiwers give this movie a 5 (cause it deserves it) come and check out my movie station 46. I'm tring to get it more noticed and each one of your votes would realy help. Thanks and PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to say...you've really outdone yourself. This film is nothing short of spectacular. It has everything a good TMO production needs, but which many seem to lack...superb dialouge, good story (Even though I have to say Pirates of the Carribbean and Pirates are somewhat similar), nice use of scenes and everything else.

Heck, you even through in a bunch of great mods in the way. I loved the retextured Pirates sets, espescially the Town. It really was great to look at. The cannon effects were nice as well, not to mention the great use of costumes (And the pirate hat!). And the SWORD! The sword was amazing. I mean, it didn't look out of place or like something that wasn't supposed to be there, it just went through every scene. It was AWESOME.

So, I have to say that I'm really looking forward to the sequel, Episode Two. And I hope you drift away from the Pirates of the Carribbean storyline as you promised (No matter how great that story was) so we can get some more originality in there. Other than that, I have to say Pirates is a superb, amazing, spectacular, excellent, great, awesome and every other adjective with some positive relation to it. GREAT JOB!!!!!

Also, if you have the time, please review the trailer for my upcoming mystery-thriller. Its at http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/108292

Okay I personaly wasn't sure if i'd like it or not, cause I'm not a big fan of pirate movies.But you did
An
Asome job with the audio.The voices very clear, full of emotion, and really fit the their their mood, look, even heritage.And the music really fit in with the movie's theme.
An
Incredble job with the visuals.You used sets In ways I didn't know you could do. The picture quialty was superb. Oh and the outfits really fit in with each charater.

Over all it was a butiful flick and I look forward to seeing the next episode.

I like how you had the pirate talk in there. the sets were great, as were the costumes. the music score was very good. where did you get the music?
the plot was very good. Good movie all together says i.

This was a very entertain movies with some decent twists. My only complaint is you used some of the same camera angles the game gives you. Try to avoid that I want to see something fresh. I liked the line "I'll be right behind you and hell is coming with me" it was a bit cliched but fit well. The voice work was also good.

Very good movie.

I've been wanting to do a Pirate movie on here, myself, but The Movies just doesn't come with the right stuff, hopefully a future expansion pack will give us more Pirate and naval combat themed things. After the success of Pirates of the Carribean, they would be foolish not too.

Anyway, this is a good quality movie with a few minor flaws. As said before, some of the scenes could have been a bit shorter. Overall, though, this is far better than I expected, and is definatly deserving of high praise.

Great mate, looking forward to seeing the second parts, hope they turn out just as well, and as to anyone who complains about mods, bah shut up, they help to increase the originality of the films!

Good attention to editing and story, well thought through (so far ;) ) and im waiting for the next intalment happily. Keep up the good work, and hopegfully the second and third will move on from the pirates of the carribean similarities!

Posted on August 23, 2006
- BeechWell

I am impressed about how well you managed to integrate the Pirates topic into the game. Especially the attack on the town is noteworthy - well done.
Fortunately you didn't stop there, though. The story is interesting and very fitting the subject. I already like that old ex-pirate!
Voice-over was also very well done and I particularly liked the music - I think I'llhave to replay Monkey Island right now!
Great work - I hope you'll make a sequel to it.

Posted on August 23, 2006
- Fortunato

A lot of tired old 'arrgh har' style cliches ruined what could have been pretty good. the story was just ok and I personally found the action a bit dull and repetitious. A lot of work went into this, which I respect, I just think the end product was a bit lacklustre.

Pirates, ye be warned!!!! I love the movie, and I think it was naturally AmAzInG that you made almost everything by yourself. I believe you are one of the most skilled here, and this movie should awards!!! Anyway, the whole Pirates of the Caribbean bieng out right now should help your movie. Even though your movie is not based on that, I feel the publicity wouldn't hurt to rub off on your movie, if you know what I am saying. Anyway, I can't wait for the next two. I am so upset I put off this movie, but I am definately bookmarking it!
Good luck in the future, and please, if you like horror, check out my movies!

I enjoyed this movie. I mean god its frickin' pirates! But my main gripe was with the editing. Too many scenes just went on for too long. Like him hammering. It showed where he wound up but it just went on for way too long. A little bit on the cutting room floor would of helped this one. Then a couple voices were off. But that happens everywhere so I didn't take that into account. I kind of cringed when you took a scene from Pirates of the Carribean. Especially since he said. "There's a lot you don't know Will" Other than that this was a great effort that I really enjoyed.

What a highly original and fun movie this was!! Before watching it I was wondering how you would pull it off, as there isn't a lot of pirate related stuff in the game, but you just made your own!! for which I greatly admire you.
The one man voice cast did a wonderful job all on his ownsome, the story wasn't the most original ever, but it was good fun and I enjoyed myself tremendously
Seeing as I watched this with someone else, we're going to say in unison: WE WANT MORE ;-)

Perfect time to watch this!!!! I've been into pirates for a few days. I've seen the new Pirates of the Carribean (awesome) and just saw a documentary on Blackbeard. (Awesome and Disgusting) Superb story and awesome VO. Can't wait for Episode 2.

A movie to behold, a stunning use of custom made sets, props and costumes. Brilliant use of voice, gripping plot and excelent characters, cemented with lavish amounts of action. I wait with baited breath for the next part, this movie deserves at least 3rd place.

This will not be a professional review Or one as a critic so I aploogize ahead of time I am not a vetren to the movies
So I will give a novies emotional review if thats ok

I don't care if like other people said it resembles POTC I have only made one movie and am getting an idea of what goes into making a movie and that is what has left me with my mouth gapping open I just watched the whole thing in awe and envy I was too engrossed in the beauty of it and the flow to pick out specifics all I can say is Excellent in every way
It held my interest the effects were awesome and the sets and character placement was superb. The VO's took me into the characters and made them real and likeable. I felt like giving this 1 star out of jealuosy but I really had to be honest and give it what it deserves I hope there is a way to bookmark you studio because i can't wait for part 2

again sorry for the poor quality of the review I will try to get better

Wow where do i start!? This movie was a great movie, probably one of the best i have ever seen so far. i thought that the characters voices sounded the same for some characters like the captians voice sounded like the old guys voice. But still it was a great movie. you should think about a sequal. I think that will be a big hit also. keep up the awsome work

This is one of the best made TMO movies in ages, and you didn't even have stunts and effects yet, am I right?
A really good job there, on the VO's, the music, the story and the costumes + sets!

I am looking foreward to the next chapter, I really am. I hope it's as good as this one. And if it is... boy, are we in for a treat! :D

it was the best movie ive seen on here maybe because i want to see the new pirates of the cribibian so bad but its the movie too. everything ok except for some of the voices that sounded like old people when they were young. and also i see what that one guy is talking about compairing it to the pirates of the caribian. #1.they attack the village. #2. they take a prisoner. #3. the guys dad was a pirate. besides that its the best. 5/5

Personally i am a huge pirate moive fan. When i saw the title "pirates" i nearly fliped my lid. The moment i began to watch i knew this would be a great movie. Details were a huge part of this film with the carribean music to the fantastic sets. This will be a great film to add to TMO.

This was one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. The movie had some points of lagging but it may be my friends computers' connection. I can tell you put a lot of work into this movie. And boy did all the work pay off. The story is great and my favorite part was the huge fight in the town. I was wondering how you got all those awesome sets! Have you seen the reviews from the others boy are they long so I'm going to make mine shorter. Well that's it and I just have one last thing to say please let the sequel come out soon!

That's delightful; for the most part, very well done. Lovely music, extremely good use of custom costumes and customised sets (and, for that matter, modding in general: the swords were impressive), and, for once, a real plot, although the beginning could have been expanded a little.

My one criticism is that some of the voiceovers suffer badly from breath noise: that really detracts, I'm afraid. Still, a very good film.

A very nice movie indeed. My problem with it however is that it is way too long. Too many repeated scenes and the attack on the town takes way too much time. I lost a lot of interest there. Storywise it's solid but there wasnt enough build up before the attack. I just didnt care.

That movie was genius! It had entertained me... I was very surprised because of the sets! You can see that you have modifying talents. I never have seen those sets and costumes before and the music and sound effects was new for me, too. It was real fantastic!

Now to your story: It was reminding me on "Pirates of the Caribbean" but it was different, too. You haven't stolen it that's clear. I thougt that your movie is a real Blockbuster...

The fight in that town was no series of scenes it was a dynamic and great fight between two parties...

I have to say to you, that ths movie is one of the best I ever had seen and I'm looking forward to the next episode of "Pirates!"

Film on!!!

From Mission: Reviewing Team
Hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
A Critic's Center Review

Opening Statement:
May we say this is the best series on TMO right now and you better get out there and watch. Total Nonstop Action and the theme music in the background was chilling. We used our surround sound speakers and if felt like a theatrical presentation and the sets have awed us. Skinshack big thumbs up to them and we really thought a pirate wouldn't succeed on TMO. Well Richegroover you have exceeded those previous expectations and made a believer out of us. There were a great group of characters in this film. It's the best TV series since Sleeves' Subway series. We're definentely looking forward to the next one. You had DOC jumping out of his seat at the amazing action. The cannons were a great touch. Pirates of the Carribean watch out because you've got competition here. The John Jackson character made Johnny Depp look like a punk in this movie. We were really amazed and with S&E the fight was amazing.

Requirements:
Richegroover you pretty much exceeded all requirements let's start with creativity and extreme editing outside of the game including mods. Great custom titles done with custom backdrops, special F/X like the cannon, great sound effects with that also, and the custom music is the baring on the cake. Great stuff there. The sets just amazed us especially the town man that blew us away. The voice overs were top notch. The storyline has life for a whole line of these episodes. As a pilot it could get picked up on any network and it has a great plot and dialogue. Great script writing here. The overall quality is some of the best we've seen in a long time. An A+ here Richegroover.

Studio Rank:
MASTER

Award/Stars:
A GENRE10 Must See Film
Five Star Golden Performance
An achievement everyone wants from Critic's Center

Useful Message from CC:
At Critic's Center we make sure the studio takes something out of our review and use it towards future projects. We don't just say a few words and leave you with nothing. We give you reality and it always has helped our filmmakers in the past. The mission is reviewing.

Closing:
Richegroover we've never reviewed any of your previous films before, but this one is a classic. Emmy worthy stuff here from you. One of the things we noticed is that with these mods it won't even matter how good a movie is, but you were able to make a great film here with a purpose. Continue to always do extra work on your movies because this is great quality stuff. There were no mistakes in this, but the only one we want to help you out with is to do more with the characters since this is a TV series. Let your audience know more about the characters that way this film has an overhaul identity. Richegroover mark our words this is something special no doubt about it. We can't wait to see episode 2 this series absolutely blew us away.

Great movie, its been a long time I didn't give a review to a film. But I was browsing the main page and saw Pirates. I thought it will be interesting. Well, I loved it.

The voices were great, but for some characters they didn't really have the same pitch as the other character while talking but isn't reallly a problem in my opinion. The storyline is great, I see the Pirates of the Carribean style in it, because well. My father is not a pirate. Line by Will in Pirates of the Carribean, but I am glad you did not copy the movie, you made up your own storyline that was great.

The credits were fast in the begining, I had to pause it to read it all. Sets were superb, some peple tried to make some pirate movie on this site, but don't even let me start talking about them. Characters were great, but still have a little problem with the son who is captured who seemed a bit to plain. But the story right now is starring more on his father.

Fights and battles on TMO are getting old, they are repetive and always the same. But this one had my eyes stuck on my computer screen. Because well, the set got it into it. The sound effects, the canons, the soldiers... A lot made me love it, the swords is one of the weapons I greaty appreciated. I liked the way you added lots of extras that always fit in into the plot, the sound effects were always there. In my opinion it should be in the number 1 spot, it is a one of kind movie and will interest lots of Pirate fans. It has the potential and everything needed to get to the number one spot on TMO. And to newbies on this site you will get lots of votes for them because of the swords, finnaly swords is what we can all say. The swords are a great impact in the play and can't wait what you will do in the next movie since its a thriller that is one of a kind.

No need to give marks because this is cleary a five star and this goes for everyone, and to people who vote this below 4 stars, let me tell you something. Watch the movie before rating.

Posted on June 16, 2006
- jacksonj04

Not the best I've seen. Whilst The Movies doesn't have a huge number of set genres, this film relied far too heavily on modded scenes. The story I also felt was a bit lacking, with people rating highly on the grounds of visuals rather than the film on its own.

Perhaps episodes 2 and 3 will change my mind about the series as a whole, but this just didn't do it for me.

Brilliant! Forgive me if I am brief in my review, for I am very tired. I give 5 stars on extremely rare conditions, but this film merits it. It is one of the very few on The Movies which resembles a professionally made movie. Obviously, there is a long way to go until such a high standard is reached, but this film is a step in the right direction, not seen often with The Movies.

man some of these reveiwers really take this stuff seriously (its only a game people). ok i give it three stars partly because ive allready seen this movie and partly because you really didnt make this movie yourself it seems that you used stuff that others made and other people helped in other ways. i like when people make a movie with the stuff contained in the game and still make a great movie, not needed all this "custom content" to make a movie great. im not saying i make great movie but i use only what is within the game and i only spend a few hours on one movie and besides its not like any of these movies are goin to the big screen hehe. i guess what im saying i dont like these "big budget" movies.

- madgoat

extremely good, entertaining and interesting. The VO acting, costumes, props, sound effects, and music are superb! Cinematography wise, this movie is almost effortless compared to the high quality of everything else. Almost all of the shots are the orignal shots and length from when you picked them in scriptwriting. Not too bad though. Since this is just the 1st episode and it's to be continued, I wont take off for a confusing story, but I wasn't at all sure who the good guys were, until after the battle. -not good. But overall, this is an incredible movie, and I hope to see the next one, nice work! This is the 1st TMO movie I've seen since March, and I may come back soon to make and watch more movies. Thank you for making this.

I have never seen Pirate movies like this before! Actually this film is in a class of its own.. Really great composition here. It backs itself to be one of the best, and as with its no.1 positioning on the charts, It speaks for itself. Sets, Music, Sound fx and direction was suberb! I can see you worked really hard with this film and i'm sorry to see it drop down the charts with the EP making an impact but it only leaves the room upcoming releases from you. I could only expect your next film with the aid of S&E to be a top HIT..
But an achievement is set, with this film being the last no.1 charted movie before the Expansion, so I congratulate you. Top effort!

very nice, nice modding.

Posted on June 7, 2006
- chatnoir_studios

It shows that a lot of care was given to this movie.

Sets were very well-chosen, some backdrops were nice, and one of the modded sets�??the pirate captain�??s cabin�??was just amazing. My only complaint in the dressing department was that the loose stripe T-shirts and pants of the pirate crew felt very 1980�??s and 1990�??s, which was slightly distracting. If there were any way to retexture 1950�??s outfit (with tight shirts and pants), wouldn�??t that have been better?

The music fit the movie well. VOs were very impressive, especially considering the fact that they were done by one person! Ranger21 has amazing range.

When it comes to the story and characters, they did not grab the black cats very tight just yet. The black cats felt a strange distance between themselves on the one hand and the characters and the story on the other, although they are not sure why. Perhaps they did not have enough chance to get to know these people beyond a few facts. Perhaps this first episode was establishing the setting for the upcoming episodes more than anything else.

The black cats have decided upon a FOUR STARS rating for this movie.

^,,^ BLACK CATS REVIEW ^,,^ 40/50

I really really enjoyed this movie. This is the first movie on the site that I've seen about pirates, but it probably wont get much better than this. Great voice acting, great editing, great characters. I like the relationship between the son and father, not exaggerated like most movies. Good accent by the way. "And hell's coming with me" Nice reference to Tombstone.

The storyline is really nice, but I think the best think of this movie is the atmosphere. The splendid voiceovers, the costumes, backdrops... all this stuff contribute to show a wonderful pirate atmosphere. Very nice music too (did I hear something from Soul Reaver? :P)

To sum up, I think this movie is a breath of fresh air in The Movies, and I'm sure the next episodes will be even better than this one ;)

Yar Great movie! Those be nice sets and costumes. Can't talk about the story, it ain't finished yet, looks somewhat a classical pirate tale like I heard hundreds, but defenitly well told, with great characters, and a great ambient. Cannon backdrop could've been shorter and other scenes cutted a little, but I really enjoyed watching it and I'm waiting for the next part. :)

- Maximilian101

Wow! A great addition to TMO!
I've been watching the movies on here since the start of the year, and as far as i know, this is the first pirate movie on here.

The first thing that stands out from this movie is the voice acting. It is really well done, and was amazed to find out that it was all done by one person. Each of the major characters seems to have their own distinctive style of voice, such as Leadbitter Snrs 'proper' english accent, Redbeards stereotypical pirate accent and Mannys (it sounded like manny anyway) Irish accent to name a few.
The custom sets and backdrops were also well done, they created that true pirate movie feel to them.
Added to this the music, which also had a pirate movie sound to it, then the atmosphere of a proper pirate movie was really well created in this.
Storywise the movie was good. Nothing like a good old fashioned, pirates attack town and cause mayhem story, but the added elements of the Leadbitters (i'm trying not to spoil the movie here), gave it an added dimension and left me waiting eagerly for the second part.
A final mention must go to the editing. The movie was well constructed and edited together which helped avoid continuity errors which occur in a lot of movies on TMO because of poor editing. A special mention must go to the Leadbitter/Red Beard fight scene which was well put together and managed to avoid blatent continuity errors such as people appearing in a different place to where they were in the last scene.

However this movies did also have it faults.
Firstly although the voice acting was absolutely superb, there was still a few moments where some voices appeared to be louder than others and there was a few occasions of 'puh' as maniac puts it in his review, although these moments were far too rare to spoil the voices.
Secondly, there was some inconsistent sounds. In the town when the pirates attack, the civilian shouting is really loud, however when it cuts back to the beach and ship during these scenes, there is no shouting whatsoever. Perhaps it would have been better to have a quieter version of this sound going over these scenes, so it adds to the atmosphere of the chaos going on in the distance.
My only other criticism is that the start titles move too quickly, however that is again, no major problem.

Overall a well constructed movie that is worth a watching and i cant wait for its sequal!

- holdmykidney

Arrrr.. this be a mighty leviathan of a movie, says I! Dragged up from Davy Jones' locker it be...it is.. it... ah well.

This film is an amazing achievement and represents a great deal of hard work.

The props, costumes and sets look incredible and the world of Caribbean Piracy is brought spectacularly to life.

The story is first rate, too, as with all of Richegroover's scripts. Manages to stay to formula where it should and also bring fresh ideas that make the story unique.

As commented on previous movies and in other reviews here, editing is obviously not Richegroover's strong point. As well as the fast opening captions, there are subtitles that hang on, scenes that play out unnecessarily and some bad cuts.

The sound is also first rate, with the hullabaloo in the pirate attack creating a real sense of a crowd larger than TM can provide.

Story: 5/5 Excellent - looking forward to the next part!
Dialogue: 5/5 Full of character and laughs - not too sure how many were intentional but the cod pirate chatter is cheesy and great.
Editing: 3/5 Lacks pace and timing, but otherwise tells the story well.
Sound: 5/5 Brillint - A few issues with crowd sound cutting between scenes but I suspect this may be TM.
production: 5/5 First class! You really will not see innovation like this anywhere but Richegroover's films.

This is an outstanding movie that everybody should see.

I was suprised, great sets,the music well suited and gave a great feel to the piece. The only thing I felt could use some work was pacing I felt a few scenes ran a little long, but not long enough to drop you down a star.

Wow, this movie was so great, I'm gonna have to break it up into tiny pieces just to tell you why it's so cool:
Story:8 out of 10-A really great story, with some really great scenes.

Acting:7 out of 10-There were none of those acting flaws that stand out like in other movies, but there was nothing special.

Originality:10 out of 10:Like some of the other directors said, this is 100 percent your idea.

Custimization:You took a great story, and made it completely your own movie. It seemed that not one set wasn't tweaked.

All in all, that was awesome.

Well now I feel like building myself a mainbrace so I can splice it. There were a galleon of ideas in there, so many that I could probably parrot on about them all night! I Kidd you not this is one of the best films I have seen on this site and can see how some people could be tortugaed about not being able to come up with such good films on their own (germans indeed). Admittedly the film is not perfect, instead of cutting more you seem to have cutless. I think that most other films are not a patch on this one.
I would write a more indepth review but I have got to rum!

Posted on June 4, 2006
- wazmaster5794

Story/Plot--19/20: The topic of pirates is wonderful. And the overall plot was very very good, even though it drifted off at points.

Originality--15/20: I still can't get over the fact that pirates don't use shotguns!

Voiceovers/Subtitles--18/20: The words were Way too fast in beginning, would have been worse though if you hadnt have written them in the description. The pirate voiceovers were done very well,

Special Effects--20/20: WOW! lots and lots of custom sets and backdrops. You obviously took a lot of time in doing the costumes effects etc. GREAT.

Did it Fit me?/Other--17/20 It fit me well, and this is the highest rating you'll get for a non-comedy film ( :D ). It ended in mid-flashback form, which isnt that great, but it isnt that much of a biggie, just wondering how you might start the second part...


OVERALL------89/100-----89%-----Grade: B-----Converted: 4 STARS

But that was a very entertaining film, despite my 4-star review (haha)! Congratulations on top of the charts and I'd love to see the next two parts!!!!!

The film could have used a bit of work on the gunshot sound effects, but all others were excellent. And some of the scenes were very repetetive, but I understand that is due to lack of versatility in the game scene selection. Good story. Definitely a 5 star movie.

Critics Center Review

Okay i'll admit like all pirates movies i was really apprehensive about watching this movie. I don't know why but in my eyes pirates movies in real life usually go one of two ways, head towardsa thrilling rollercoaster ride like Pirates of the Caribbean, or go for horrific messed up rubbish like the disaster that was Cutthroat Island. However, this movie definately went towards the side of Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact there were many times in this movie i made comparisons to Pirates of the caribbean, i'll explain myself slightly later. But this is still hugelly entertaining, TMO has never really had a movie that i could refer to as a Blockbuster, well this movie look comes pretty damn close to it.

Okay i'll go slightly more in depth about the things i liked about this movie, and trust me there was actually a hell of a lot of stuff that i loved. First up i trully admir you for having the guts to try and do a Pirates movie on TMO. No one, well to my knowledge anyway, has attemted making one, but with the nice mods and the great feeling this more than ran away with it. The action in this movie had me absolutely thrilled, it just had a nice piratey feel to it. Not like the ridiculous action scenes most people use, this had thrills all over it, this fact was made even better by the mods allowing them to have swords! Another factor of this movie that was spectacular was the music and VO's. The custom music gave it even more of a cool feeling, it was slightly remiscent of Pirates of the Caribbean but with some nice originality spliced in with it. The VO's were also just great, the VA's gave the characters a bit more depth without loweing to corny piratey voices, sure there were some, ut they never took over the characters. You had time to like them and notjust have them consistantly shoved in your faces. This movie just had a nice feel to it, it was fun, fast paced and full of great plotting.

Okay this movie has a few weaknessed that while never ruin the movie, do make it seem slightly less of a great movie (don't fear this still deserves its number one spot). Basically the comparisons with Pirates of the Caribbean never stopped coming, while i won't mention much to avoid plot spoilers there were some scenes that reminded me of the attack on the port in the Pirates of the Caribbean. In fact there was one weakness, well personal weakness i felt. The main hero never really hit a brilliant chord, sure he did his purpose, but i was kind of expeting something vaguely Johnny Depp judging from the Pirates of Caribbean comparisons. ow i've watched it though i could watch it again that down feeling would be gone. Anf finally there were some editing stuff that annoyed me, just little scenes a bit too long if you know what i mean, for example there was an opening scene with the father hammering, well it could have been cut by a few seconds, it just got slightly annoying.

So these are niggling flaws and after reading your Public Profile i am now sure this will develop on its own and i won't have to keep making Pirates of the Caribbean comparisons. I'm really looking forward to the next parts of this movie, trust me this is an easy 02 APPROVED and easily the number 1 movie on TMO. A true trbute to what can be done if you reall try.

The old salt, a couple of scurvy dogs, avhast there be Pirates about. A good entertaining romp through the Caribbean when the new Captain meets up with the old.

Critical areas:
Plot/Storyline: So far we see the standard pirate tale. A well written storyline takes us through the events of the introductory tale. The characters are presented with minimal development, we do get a brief glimpse at the past of Henry Leadbitter.

Editing: Good editing of scenes. The highlight of this film is of course the customizations - costumes. mods, sets. This is the showcase of the movie and is an excellent display. Action is always difficult to edit, although I did like the raid on the town editing there could have been tightened up some - the crowd noises were good but came in spurts and cut out, would have been better to lower crowd sounds while the raid was still going on and then make it louder again when the focus was put back on it. Opening credits - well no need to repeat what you know by now, but for the record - they went by faster than a landlubber falling off de plank.
Sound: Good choices for music. Good vo's. Ranger did a good job, but you still may benefit from expanding the voice cast.

Overall: Great costumes and sets, a highly entertaining film. Any fan of the high seas won't be disappointed. A good introductory tale and the following stories hopefully will have more of the story which this one gave us as a teaser.

Posted on June 3, 2006
- postmodernchuck

Completely brainless, all-andreline-and-no-plot, blockbuster to a fault... and yet I found myself oddly compelled with this film. Pirates is a visual tour-de-force, to be certain, featuring some of the greatest SFX of the pre-S&E era of moviemaking; the custom modding is good enough to make your head spin, featuring some incredible items that really bring authenticity to the table. The story was, as I said, typical blockbuster fluff, but intense enough to hold your interest long enough for the deliriously shot and edited action and SFX moments that really act as the centerpiece of this movie. It was incredible to watch.

So is this "aarrrrr", or aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrghhhhhh!?

Thankfully the former, lashings of well crafted skullduggery was afoot in this film.

True - the constant mic popping grated a bit - put a sock over it and speak slightly away. You can also back off the mic and increase the recording level - you'll get the same volume but without the popping (though you may need to increase the top end slightly to compensate for the muffling effect of the sock). Also, the ambient noise level needed taken down a couple of pegs - it drowned out the vocals at one point. And we got that cellar buzz as well - unavoidable, but there's no harm in turning all that down.

The music didn't always work - the strange electric piano in the bar scene seemed way out of place for 1636 as did the calypso (though I liked it anyway)...

But where this film scores heavily is in the visuals, acting, sets, costumes and editing. It was so well pieced together I thought the expansion had come early! The film was modded so well that it was like watching a demo for the brand new "pirate" scenes [don't look - they don't exist, not even in the expansion ...]

Despite the bad recording quality, the acting was consistently excellent throughout. A terrific performance from the sole actor on the project who did all the voices.

The explosive action scene was well handled - but if I was to be ultra picky, I think the shot where the cannon is seen to be firing should be momentary, a quick cut (I`m sure that shot will be used again in upcoming sequels). Nice to see a proper sword being used too, and I loved the sailor costumes.

Not sure about the storyline (why exactly was his son kidnapped - apart from to give Captain Henry something to chase after) - but it's a LOT better than "Pirates of the Carribean" which was just a mess.

So, there we are. The first pirate film ever made on The Movies, and what a good piece of work it is too.

Set a course for episode 2! Steady as she goes!

Now that was awesome. Its been a few days since I've given out a 5 star review. And this one deserves it. The only problem I could see was some of the VOs at the beginning huffed and puffed. But everything else was spotless. The sets, the story, the characters, the story again, the VO's and its a freaking pirate movie one of my favorite genres. This was a one of a kind movie for TMO. I hope this gets to number one cuz it deserves to be in the TMO hall of fame.

There were some things about this I really enjoyed. I'm a fan of pirate movies, so this was right up my alley. The costumes, were, of course, great, and I think you did a good job creating a solid "pirate" feel.

There were just a few parts of the story that were hard for me to get into. I find it hard to believe that the original captain was somehow a nice pirate - that just doesn't fit the genre of the pirates I know & love. The title screens at the beginning went by a bit too fast for me to read.

I thought the music choices were great, and most of the voiceovers were well-done.

"Red, you've crossed the wrong man this time. I'm right behind you, and hell is coming with me!"

The plot and characters are fairly simple, but they do fit well into the stereotyped pirates style. In fact, the whole movie is an excellent reproduction of the genre, from the characters, voices, costumes, sets, and music.

From a pacing perspective, I thought that some areas would have benefitted from being a little slower (notably the credits at the start as noted, but also a pause between the conversation and the last line of the movie, and the ending credits should have been longer to give a more satisfying conclusion to the movie). Other parts I thought could have been faster, like the pirates attacking the village seemed to go on for a long time, as did the fist-fight.

The characters were well presented, and with good quality voice acting for the most part. Some of the voices had breathing into the mic issues, and some didn't really sound 'piratey'. Actually I thought that significant sections of the script may have benefitted from more 'piratization' to keep the atmosphere watertight.

Overall, I thought this was a very good movie, and I eagerly look forward to seeing the story progress in the subsequent parts. All the best for the future.

Gotta say I'm impressed!

Although after reading the script I had some scenes envisioned differently, I was taken in awe at how well the atmosphere was translated.
Who would have thought that the Stage Set could pose as a believable ship deck?

The modding work done on the WWStreet/Bombedstreet was great (funnyly enough I just funished a quite similar work on the WWStreet).
But what made this movie for me was Ranger21's VO work, man I really dig that accent.

I'm sure that one could find some quirks in this movie if he was looking close enough, but honestly, who would do that when being entertained in such an delightful way.
A great movie that puts back the fun in watching Swashbuckling adventures.

i usually rate films on effort, and obviously your talent lies with modding, and you really used the unmodded sets well with modded ones, i give credit to some past reviewers that your diolouge is stale some momments, and by the end of the film i'm at a losss for plot, the film overall wows everyone with mods and begins the adventure that we're all waiting for, our adventures begin but how will they go on....will they end?

Expectations: This a widely hyped Pirate movie featuring the mod-work of Skinshack staff members Richegroover, stvndysn, ranger21, and others. This is perhaps one of most pretentious Pirate films on TMO, if not the first pirate film.

**** FRIDAY NIGHT HARDCORE REVIEW! ****

General Summary: For the most part, I thought I found this to be a great movie with some awesome mod work and other nice elements but how well does it survive on a typical Friday night for KRC?

Merits: Well ... the obvious merit in this film is the modding. This film has modding in about every minute of it. There's modding on the costumes, the sets, the backdrops, and even the overlay telescope. Really grand stuff! The flying knife was nifty as well and you can't forget the pirate ship, and the bearded pirate's hat. The VOs were great, too, considering that only one person did them all! Great work! I also dig the sets-- really hip! You also added in some great ambience vocals and sound effects such as in the attack scenes and bar. Also the sounds in the sea and cannon blasts. (base score: 5.0)

Criticism / Questions: I do have some crits, however. First of all is that the backstory of why the attack happened made me wonder. I take it the bearded pirate was once the old man's friend 19 years ago. How come the bearded pirated decided to attack the village? Was there a reason? (-0.2)

Next are some technical merits--
I personally thought the fight scene between the old man and the bearded pirate was cut up a bit and edited heavily. Sometimes, an edited fight scene is rather boring because, after seeing it so many times, we kind of figured out who the winner of the fight could possibly be. (-0.1)

Next, the scene when the old man was hammering the house. I thought it could have been a bit shorter. (-0.1)

The VOs also has some blowing and other kinds of blasters. Perhaps Ranger21 could look into buying or making a pop filter for his mic. Other alternatives is to talk at an angle on the mic or even use a Sock to minimize the noise. (-0.1)

There were some fades that seemed rather unnecessary, like when the pirates were walking on the beach and into town. Instead of using three scenes of two people walking, perhaps two scenes of three people walking. (-0.1)

My least favourite mod out of this movie would have to be the blue cloak that the ship's captain wears ... it looks very blue and has little detailing on it. If that same skin was in an FPS game, I would have ranted about it. (-0.05)

Memorable Parts: Well, the movie as a whole can remembered well because it's a highly regarded film about Pirates. There may be a few pirate films before this one but I think this particular pirate film sticks out amongst the wannabes. (+0.25)

Closing: Overall, it's a great film and I think the next episode looks promising. I can't to see how the story unfolds. Perhaps, I'll get to know the pirate leader's incentives in the next chapter.

Score: 4.6

Absolutely stunning! A never before seen conceptwas brang to life in this epic quest!

Amazing dialogue by all VAs, they really suited the feel.

Great sound effects and 'atmosphere' backed it up very well.

An amazing story which is seeming to build.

And awesome modding which really helped the film.

Wow! The first of it's kind and setting the bar VERY high! To tell the truth, I came into Pirates not knowing a thing. I'd seen the thread one or two times, but didn't really give it my full attention. Now that I've seen it, I'm so surprised I didn't get in on this sooner. The storyline was great, the editing swashbucklingly great, the sets and sounds were AWESOME. The only part of the film that didn't wow me all the way through was some of the dialogue. Still, a phenomenal film full of action, laughs, and a mystery within. Arrgh!

The first of its kind, and it's done a brilliant job of setting the bar for future pirate films! I don't know where to begin with this film, so I guess I'll start with the bad...

There were a few editing problems, and I think the biggest one was the backdrops. The intro credits/scenes were WAY to fast, and if not for reading the movie description I wouldn't have known what they said. Next time, try to slow it down a bit. Also, the end credits weren't as bad, but they were still a tad fast. Another editing problem, was the sound. For the most part the VOs were all at the same level, however there were a few louder than others. The 'puh' sounds aren't completely avoiable, so no demerits for that. Also, sometimes the sound effects were a tad too loud, making it hard to hear, or get into the film. For example the seaguls were really loud at some points.

As for storyline - well done, very well done! I cannot wait for part two, and I know it'll be great! You did a great job of developing the story, and a note some people miss, you did a splendid job of developing the characters! Great job. You made me want to hate some characters, root for some, and just not care about others. I also liked how you progressed through the scenes to tell the story effectively. There could have been a few more, or just different, transition scenes, but for the most part they were great!

Originality factor - As far as I know, the first pirate movie to hit TMO, and a great one at that! Pirate movies are popular, and depending on how long this series is, you could have great timing with the release of Pirates Of The Carribean 2:Dead Man's Chest because is coming out this summer I believe. Great work there!

The music was also brilliant, and very authentic to the setting. You really got me into the movie with it. The happy songs, and the action song especially were great! And I also liked how there wasn't much quiet time in the movie, where there was nothing but speech. The VOs were amazing, besides some being louder, but for all of them being done by Ranger, wow! After reading the description and seeing that all VO work was done by Ranger, I figured there'd be about 3 or 4 roles, if that. There were at least 6 and that just proves how much talent there is at TMO! Great work Ranger, I'm sure many people will be asking you for help, and you will be a great Voice Actor in the near future!

Overall, this movie was pretty darn good! I loved the way you told the story, I loved the authenticity - from music, to VO accents, to clothing, to sets - great work! I can't wait for Episode 2! Here's *The Breakdown*
Originality: 8/10 - With pirate movies being popular in real life, I can't give a perfect score, but new to TMO really helps!
Plot/Story: 10/10 - Very well told, with some minor flaws, but unnoticable to the untrained eye. Great work!
Editing: 7/10 - Some quick backdrops, and some scenes could have been changed, along with a few better cuts. Good work on the whole though!
Subs/VOs: 9/10 - Some louder than others, but for all being one person, BRAVO!
WOW Me: 10/10 - Almost got the WOW ME, but just short. The originality factor pushed this to a 10/10, but it was sometimes hard to get into the film because of fast scenes, and loud sound effects. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED FILM!
Total: 44/50 or 4.4 stars, rounded up because of originality!

Excellent!

Interesting and imaginitive squashbucking tail, sort of reminded me of the old "jedi" system of a wise old master (that retired in this case) and a pupil gone wrong. The battle was one of the best parts, despite the limited scenes the creative editing, combined with excellent realistic battle sounds raised the atmosphere through the roof. Even in the bar the soundtrack made it sound like a busy place, which is great because every bar scene nowadays is just to quiet. Most of the dialogue is ok, but I felt some of the conversation scenes, such as between the farther and son was hollow, as they basically kept saying the same thing.

Too bad I can only give out 5 stars, because this deserves much more.

I'm often hated for being honest in my reviews. Especially when it goes against the general opinion, but I think it is a fair review. I hope you take it as such.

Originality: Not very. I felt as if I was watching a remake of Pirates of the Caribbean, just with the characters switched around. 3/5 stars
Story: Again, felt very unoriginal, but the story seemed to get a little boring and the fight scenes quickly became repetative. 3/5 stars
Editing: Smooth editing. I particularly enjoyed the way you spliced in the cannon firing and the explosions on the beach. 5/5 stars
Subs/VOs: The opening scenes flew by so fast that I didn't have time to read them. The VO's were good, but too much heavy breathing in the mic. 3/5 stars
Custom: Good use of custom mods to enhance the story. Some could have used a little work, but good job none the less. 4/5 stars
Wow factor: I wasn't really blown away by anything in the movie. Some nice editing, some good mods, but the story just really let me down. 2/5 stars

Overall: I know this is the just the beginning, but it seemed really rushed to get into the action and then the action went on for way too long. A little more back story would have been nice. Good movie, but the story line is what I always look at most and that let me down a bit. 3.33/5 stars

Posted on June 2, 2006

Quick Review: To be honest I felt this was a little rushed, some of the quick scene cuts were too fast and the title wizzed by before I had time to read them. The VO were very poppy and some audio treatment might have improved them. Everything else was fine, sets, props, costumes brilliant, the story was well thought out. Overall this was a very good movie 4 stars :)

From Critic's Center Hosts Owen and Dr.Davidson with World Pictures

Pirates, the first Pirate movie on TMO, had expectations beyond belief. This easily is one of the best movies on TMO right now, here's why.

The intro of the movie alone deserved 5 stars. The music was very well chosen, and the custom credits really help movies stick out from the rest, something this movie succeeded heavily in. The modding alone also deserved 5 stars, well chosen, well done, a huge range of mods that really helped this movie set the 1600's look. Ranger21, the solo voice-actor, deserves loads of credit. His voice-acting was unbeleivable, it makes it sound like you chose a cast of 40 VA's. The directing of this movie was wonderful, the scenes were brilliantly chosen, and scenes each had a novelty value. The editing was excellent, the scenes never dragged on for long, the sounds, the camera cuts, these all helped this film to be the BEST film on TMO right now.

Congratulations on your first Critic's Center Five star golden performance, and we are happy to tell you this movie is nominated for five awards in our upcoming Critic's Center Awards ceremony, and to tell you this is a 5GENRE MUST-SEE movie!

A legendary Pirating experience!

Well finally Pirates sales onto our computers and this review was so close to being 4 stars!
The plot for a pirate film is limited but to me this seems very similar to Porates of The Carribbean. Bad ship comes to town, kidnapps child of an ex-pirate, dad goes to bar to look for crew.
The VO were very good and I am astonished they were only done by ranger but as they were here is a small bit of advise for you. Move away from the mic, there were lots of blowing sounds on words that had the letters 's','p','b' ect.
The mods deserve their own credit their is only one word to describe them - excellent!
The music was also extreammly well found and selected - I especially liked the opening!

Overall an enjoyable film to watch, and although the text went very fast at the start it did have great things in it, that made it a fun film to watch! I will watch out for the other episodes to see if the pirates have a curse - lol

Pirates is an exclent movie in its own right but moreover its an excellent opening to what i hope will be a successful series.

first of all the script is inventive it would have been all too easy to make a cliched pirate flick, but you've avoided it and instead crafted your own original storyline.

the vo is goo overall (well i would say that lol)the sound is really good and having a 100% custom soundtrack really helps bring the old sea dogs to life!

the use of mods is excellent and you've used them wisely and without making them stand out which is always a good use of mods.

excellent costumes and nice new tricks that ppl wont have seen before such as the moving telescope which is a nice trick:)

Well Richegroover what cant i say about pirates?
the answer is not much.

So here is my review

1.STORYLINE the storyline is very original, and as this is the first of a series i cant wait for the next episode to find out what the father did. = 1 star

2. THE COSTUMES, Every costume used in this is all made by rich and i have to say they are well made = 1 star

3 THE SETS. The retextured sets are so well done they alone deserve the five stars = 1 star

4 SPECIAL EFFECTS again something else that would deserve the 5 stars is the special effects, especially the thrown knife flying across and killing the soldier. = 1 star

5. THE VOICE OVER- I am amazed that the VO was only done by 1 person (Ranger21), His range of different voices is fantastic. = 1 star

so there u go a total of 5 stars for this exellent work richegroover
