“Sometimes when people get scared, they say and do terrible things. I think you got so scared that you forgot who you are. But I don’t think you’re a witch, not really. I think you’re just a little kid with a really special gift who only ever wanted people to understand her. So we’re not all that different at all.” - ParaNorman (2012)
Some of the best animation I’ve seen, ever. Seriously, all the character designs and the settings, everything was amazing. Added to that was a great story, one that can appeal to children and everyone else (which are always the greatest stories). The characters were just as good and I was especially fond of Neil who was near perfect. The film was so good I was hardly annoyed by Kodi Smit-Mcphee’s voice.
Bonus: great sibling dynamics, one of my ultimate weak spots.
