Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings ★★★★★

this is one of my favorite animated films. i'm a little biased because i'm weak for laika's stop-motion (see: coraline), but the storytelling is so superb. great pacing, beautiful colors, a dark instrumental score, sad plot twists, and hot villains. it's everything you could ever want in an animated film.
