This movie was like the sixth sense but with a twist. Outcast and misunderstood because he can speak to the dead, Norman none-the-less will take on ghosts, zombies and clueless adults in order to save his town from an ancient curse. This is so far the best animation film of 2012. the effect's are a amazing and the zombies in this movie did scary me a little bit.

I actually think the stop-motion style suits this movie well. It does carry a Tim Burtonish vibe and being fans of the zombie genre, it was nice to see a change of pace. While Pixar and the like get the attention, this shouldn't be overlooked.

The animation is great and all of the jokes made me laugh. I enjoyed the characters and the story, but there were a few slow patches. Even though the running time is an hour and a half, the movie did feel longer. There's also a nice message about treating others who are different that I did admire. This is a fine animated feature that I'd recommend to families, or those who like horror films.

Review: ParaNorman

I'll be honest, stop-motion animation is actually my favorite form of animation. It's not only the terrific look and the unique style that intrigues me, but the amount of patience, effort, and work that's put into creating it. It could take weeks to just complete one scene. Yes, many of the greatest animated films were made through traditional animation or CGI animation, but there are still many enjoyable and beautifully crafted stop-motion films that deserve full recognition, such as Coraline, Chicken Run, and, of course, A Nightmare Before Christmas. ParaNorman is the latest movie in this category, starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Afflack, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, and Leslie Mann, directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell.

Like all of the stop-...
