Review: ParaNorman

You know how sometimes you’ll be watching a movie and think, “An atheist totally wrote that line.”  Well, ParaNorman is full of them.  It was a great flick to which I’ll be dragging Michaelyn the next time she visits.

ParaNorman was made by the same group that produced Coraline, and it has a lot of the same feel to it.  It’s not as scary as Coraline, but it tackles some very adult issues, such as how fear clouds our moral judgment (*ahem* religion).  The dialogue is witty and the acting superb.  I highly recommend this film.

Also, Neil is the true hero.

He is seriously the most lovable character I’ve encountered in a while.  :)

    I love the line in the trailers where he goes “Don’t make me throw this hummus! It’s spicy!”

    We snagged the book of the movie from the library, and I thought it was pretty decent and had a good message about not prejudging others (especially on the charge of being “evil”). Good to know the movie will be a nice view too.

    I wanted to see it after watching the trailer, but now I think I’ll make a big trip out of it with all the kids and the husband.
