“If you must blink, do it now.”
This is the best animated film of the year.
Kubo and the Two Strings tells the story of Kubo, a young boy searching for a mysterious set of armor needed to defeat a vicious spirit set on killing him. Matthew McConaughey “I have a question. If I’m Beetle and you’re Monkey, why isn’t he called Boy?” and Charlize Theron “Don’t mess with the Monkey!”
play Beetle and Monkey respectively, who accompany Kubo on his quest. They both provide well-timed comedic relief.
I love this movie. It is original, beautiful to watch and has heart and soul. The quirkiness of this movie only adds to its charm. It is hard to find an original movie and using origami as the base of this movie is simply genius.
This film has action, it has drama, it has a great sense of humor and it’s also about community coming together to help one another. An affecting, sincere and delightful journey that credits its audience – children and adults alike – with intelligence and maturity, Kubo and the Two Strings is a refreshingly different family flick.
