first time watching this. this is not only a good Halloween movie, but also a good overall fall movie. i could watch it in September or November and i’d be good. i like the small towns that Laika is setting their movies in, as well as their world building. i liked that Laika was experimenting with more detail in hair, costumes, buildings, etc. Lots more fine detail compared to Coraline, and you start to see more of that detail in later movies.
Until Laika Production Studios creates a The Witches adaptation, I’m not watching it.
we should just have more stop-motion animation and independent animation studios create Roald Dahl adaptations.
So far, we’ve got:
-Fantastic Mr. Fox
-James and the Giant Peach
let me know if I missed any other adaptations
