ParaNorman ★★★½

I'll be reviewing it on the Failed Critics podcast in a couple of days time, so I'll keep it simple here and update once the podcast is released!

It seems to be a biopic of my early childhood...

I loved the music, I thought it was quite sweet, some of it will be very scary for young children (not that there should be anything wrong with scaring children (provided you can do it with your clothes on)) and in places it was very funny. Not funny all the way through, perhaps, but definitely at certain points I laughed out loud.

It has a nice story, some very nice animation and for a 3D film, the picture quality is very sharp. Speaking of 3D, it's a complete waste of time on this film. Didn't notice it in the slightest other than thinking "blimey that looks quite clear".
