Review of The Boxtrolls

2 years, 4 months ago at Sep 29 18:15

The Boxtrolls upholds a fine tradition of stop-motion animated films. Beginning with Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (critically NOT directed by Tim Burton), and followed by nearly a dozen other notable efforts, the genre of stop-motion films have been consistently released to critical acclaim. And so, it's something of a testament to the strength of the genre that The Boxtrolls is t... read more

A good movie

Yesterday, my daughter was really eager to see a movie and, to my surprise, she chose this one. To be honest, I didn’t know much about this flick and I first thought it was actually a drawn animated feature. I was therefore positively surprised that it was actually a stop-motion feature produced by the guys responsible for ‘Coraline’ and ‘ParaNorman’. I must admit that the whole thing w... read more

"The Boxtrolls" (2014)

It's funny how they're marketing this as "from the makers of ParaNorman" even though it doesn't share any of the same creative team. It's presumably the same animators, though: same studio, and the art design looks very similar. It also shares those movies' dark, mildly creepy edge, though maybe not quite to the same extent.
Aside from that, it's a standard ... read more

Description: The new 3D animated feature from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that's the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture above-ground to save them, where he teams with an ... (more)

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2015 (23 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 37min. First Viewing The Boxtrolls is inventively animated, and well voiced by the cast, but just too generic and bland when it comes to the story. It's missing the creative flair that has made so much of Laika animations' previous output so interesting."

Best movies of 2014 (39 movies items)

" The animation is stellar, the whole look & feel of the film is just amazing, there's some excellent humor throughout, and the story is one that hasn't been done to death told in a way that feels fresh. Best of all, it's populated with characters that are mostly unattractive in any conventional sense which you can't get away with in your typical Hollywood film. Fortunately there's nothing typical here. "
