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.
