    Kubo and the Two Strings 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Sep, 2016

    A really nice animation with a simple quest story that has its heart in Japanese folklore.

Failing to heed his mother's advice, Kubo stays out after dark one evening and is instantly faced with the threat of his evil aunts and grandfather, who…

    In the style of Matt, because why not. Saw this with my cinema card and also cos the poster looks damn cool. Look at it. Like some seventies sepia stuff and I'm always down for that. Opens on Gyllenhaal thin as hell. Hair slicked back like some creepy dude. No money but clearly owns a comb. Does bad shit with this grin. Freaked me out a bit but whatever, it's cool.
    He drives this shitty car all over the place,…
