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

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Well, it turned out to be Laika’s most ambitious and most gorgeous movie so far. Indeed, the damned thing looked really amazing and only therefore it is worth watching this flick. Right now, you can only wonder if Laika will manage to top this with their futu... read more

Fairy tales, for all of their splendor and magic, are built upon mutating tragedy and strife into digestible bits. They wrap their morality plays in sweeping epics of romance, adventure, and rousing entertainment as a way to explain the dangers of everyday life. 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.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Well, it turned out to be Laika’s most ambitious and most gorgeous movie so far. Indeed, the damned thing looked really amazing and only therefore it is worth watching this flick. Right now, you can only wonder if Laika will manage to top this with their future productions. And, yet, to be honest, I have to admit that I was somehow not completely sold by the whole thing. I guess it had to with the story which was actually quite original and full of magic. Unfortunately, even though this constant use of magic stuff might sound interesting, in my opinion, it made the whole thing actually rather random. Basically, pretty much anything could happen at any” read more

"Primera pelicula de Laika que veo completa, que hermosa experiencia que toda una historia sea movida por animación es super dificil en especial cuando te basas en relatos Japoneses, una lastima que mas allá de una preciosa epica animada quede una trama aunque interesante un poco predecible desde el comienzo, aun asi sigue teniendo muchos puntos a su favor."

My Top 10 Favourite Movies of 2016 (10 movies items)

"This latest animated film from Laika is about a young boy named Kubo who must locate a magical suit of armour to defeat a vengeful spirit from his past. I really liked Coraline and ParaNorman, but this is, hands down, my favourite Laika movie so far. The stop-motion animation is absolutely superb; if there was any CG involved, the stop-motion is so flawless that I can't tell where one ends and the other begins. The overall atmosphere this movie creates is just phenomenal: like a classic fairytal"
