Yes I know I am behind with this one so no need to tell me so. Even my wife watched this before me and was shocked lol. Anyways I saw it on Netflix so I took my chance. I don't like the look of most stop-motion animation, but this one in particular actually looked pretty good. Plus the voice cast helps a lot! Wow this is the first and only film from director Travis Knight. I can only wonder what h... read more

Kubo and the Two Strings openly plays with these conventions, beginning with Kubo imploring us to pay attention to the stories he tells a... read more

Kubo lives a quiet, normal life in a small shoreside village until a spirit from the past turns his life upside down by re-igniting an age-old vendetta. This causes all sorts of havoc as gods and monsters chase Kubo who, in order to survive, must locate a magical suit of armor once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.

Wow this is the first and only film from director Travis Knight. I can only wonder what he will bring in the future. It's also the first for writers Marc Haimes and Shannon Tindle. Chris Butler isn't new to this though as he also did ParaNorman from a few years back. So let's see why this was so well received.

This was beautifully made and different. Things didn't go as I pictured they would. It's intense and kind of on the darker side for a family movie. It does have it's ” read more

20 Favorite Movies From 2016 (20 movies items)

" "If you must blink, do it now." Animated movie with a lots of heart. Dialog is a bit lackluster, but characters are really charming. But, for me, highlight of the movie is stop motion animation which is truly amazing in this movie. There were never so big monsters in any other stop motion feature, and it's one of the most beautiful movies of 2016, animated or not."

"5/2/17 Impressive stop-motion animation about a young boy's adventure with a sarcastic monkey and a beetle as they try to protect him from his evil aunt. The animation is masterful that you think you are watching a CGI production. A smart, sometimes scary family treat."
