Kubo and the Two Strings

This is one of the films of the year.
A Japanese fable delivered in stunning stop-motion by American studio LAIKA, the team behind Coraline, ParaNorman and Boxtrolls.
Every single one of you needs to see it.
Joining us are animation experts Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse and Jerome McIntosh of GameBurst. Among other things we discuss the climate for animated films and what it takes to make a hit, which this, tragically, despite its beautiful direction, tight, well-delivered script, vibrant, fun characters and playful yet heartrending score, is not.
Next week we begin our October SPOOKtacular, starting with a gloriously detailed discussion on the original Resident Evil video game and its splendid remake.
