Movies

A film, also called a movie, motion picture, moving picture, or photoplay, is a series of still images that, when shown on a screen, create the illusion of moving images. This optical illusion causes the audience to perceive continuous motion between separate objects viewed in rapid succession. The process of filmmaking is both an art and an industry.

Although using what is referred to as "pirated" maybe illegal in some countries, due to violation of copyright laws, it does not necessarily mean it is haram to do, from a shar'i perspective. 

This would mean that there is no need for you to "repent" for such a thing. I would advice one observes caution, so as to not get legally in trouble, and follow the infringement laws of where you live. 

And Allah knows best.

It is forbidden if it influences the viewer and causes moral corruption or arousal. Furthermore on a mandatory precaution watching such movies is to avoided entirely if it contains sexually indecent scenes, accordring to Sayyid Sistani. 

If the movie is immoral, which means that it contains obscene scenes that trengthen one's satanic whims, weaken one's will, faith and precipitate for vile consequences and perpetration of sinful acts it is totally impermissible, accordring to Sayyid Khamenei. 

You must do an individual evaluation of the specific movies (when skipping the indecent scenes and haram music) to consider whether the rest of the content is decent.
