A fun, solid stop-motion picture.

Before jumping into conclusions about the title, it is highly important to note that ParaNorman is not intentionally a children’s adaptation of the Paranormal Activity franchise. The title is merely a reference to the series and is different in almost every way. When it comes to animated children’s films with a dark tone, there are boundaries that must be met in order for them to be suitable f... read more

A good movie

I wasn't really planning to see this flick but since it was the end of the holiday for Nick (my step-son), we went one last time to the theater and chose this flick. Eventually, I thought it was a pretty good stop-motion feature but, to be honest, it was still missing something in my opinion. It figures that it was made by Laika, the studio which made 'Coraline' a few years back. I mean, both movi... read more

Review of ParaNorman

Discounting the crowd-dividing Brave, 2012 was indisputably one of the great years in animation. It represented a number of marvelous animated films including Wreck-It Ralph, Frankenweenie, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, and Rise of the Guardians. Among the great animated films released in 2012 was ParaNorman; stopmotion studio Laika's second film, after Coraline. And it's exactly what one would... read more

Animate This! My Favorite Stop-Motion Films (30 movies items)

" Whenever you see a little kid talking to open air, in most cases, it's because they're talking to their imaginary friend(s). In most cases. But there are a few situations wherein it's because they possess a sixth sense..... in which they can see dead people. The fact that, as this movie's title indicates, the lead character of this story has a "Para" prefix to his name, makes it pretty easy to guess which one of these cases Norman belongs to. "

CheoFuenmayor posted a review 3 years, 7 months ago

“Esta es de esas películas que me gustaría que hubiesen sido más relevantes en su momento y estoy seguro de que en unos años estará valorada como una película de culto. Hasta donde sé fue un fracaso comercial, pero después de verla no puedo pensar que esto fue más que nada por no tener el respaldo de una empresa gigantesca en la industria para publicitarla.

Me parece una excelente opción para niños de 6 años en adelante, pero sobretodo se la recomiendo a entusiastas de la animación y en especial del Stop Motion.” read more

"Re-watch - March 3rd The only way ParaNorman could be better is if it was aimed at adults instead of at everyone. Seriously, one of these days someone will make an animated horror-comedy that's R-rated and it'll end up being my favorite film of all time. (Preferably someone like Edgar Wright, and if he works with Laika then that'd be stellar.) Until then, this will have to do. I really do enjoy everything about this film, and it's one I'll keep coming back to every so often."
