Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

The fourth stop-motion animated feature film from Laika Studios is the deeply imaginative, heartfelt Kubo and the Two Strings. Remarkably, it's an original story, designed to be something like Japanese folklore, but created by Westerners. Nonetheless, it's respectful and uncynical, choosing warmth and beauty over vulgarity or crudeness. Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson, a teen "Game of Thrones" star) is a young boy whose father is gone and who takes care of his mother; she seems emotionally devastated, sometimes lucid, but most times gazing off into the distance. Kubo earns money in the village by playing his magical stringed instrument, which can make origami figures move and tell stories. He's also missing an eye, stolen by his evil relatives. One day, those relatives attack, and Kubo must retreat, journeying across the land to find three magical pieces of armor. He's aided by a talking monkey (voiced by Charlize Theron) and a warrior beetle (voiced by Matthew McConaughey). There are amazing monsters, a flock of paper birds, a ship built from dry leaves, and other dazzling sights; the movie truly has the ability to create awe and wonder, a rare thing these days. Directed by Laika CEO Travis Knight -- making his debut -- Kubo and the Two Strings champions the pure pleasure and power of storytelling; it's simple, but spectacular. Theron and McConaughey in particular find a kind of tonal perfection in their voice work, and I'd venture to say that these are among their finest performances. read more...

Pete's Dragon (2016)

A remake of the 1977 movie, a musical that combined live-action and animation, this new Pete's Dragon is something else: like Steven Spielberg's already-underrated The BFG, it's a gentle, whimsical tale, focusing on wonder in an age when most kids' movies focus on noise and movement. It begins with one of those car-ride scenes that can only end in a crash, but director David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) handles it well, with discreet cutting. This leaves young Pete stranded in the woods alone, rescued and cared for by a kindly dragon (his big front feet look like soft, cuddly bean-bag chairs). Six years later, Pete (Oakes Fegley) has been raised apart from any humans; one day he spies a forest ranger, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), and becomes curious. Before long, he has been "rescued," but Grace's soon-to-be brother-in-law, a lumber man, Gavin (Karl Urban), has seen the dragon and sets out to capture it. read more...

Pinocchio (1940)

Pinocchio was one of five early feature masterworks Walt Disney made at the height of his powers. It's still amazing to watch the sheer delight in movement and the sheer joy in decorating the frame with colors and shapes. As with some of the other early Disney stuff, this is much darker than most people remember or realize. read more...
