Missed it in theaters (the story of my life these days), and I'm not the type to pass up spooky animation, so here it comes:

This movie won't hit the theatres over here until 10 Jan 2013. Definitely will be buying it.

Blu-ray.com review is up, no surprises in PQ for a modern animated film: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/ParaNorman-Blu-ray/54055/#Review

I'll pick it up today. I remember the stop motion in the theater taking just a few moments to get used to. Spoiled by modern CGI animation, I suppose.

That's funny, because when I see animation that looks hand made, I'm immediately more inclined to like it smile.gif I'll probably use Paranorman to demo my new 42" Panny LCD before I take it downstairs to the projector. I should get my second blu ray player today.

Finally came in today, looking forward in watching tomorrow night.

It does look amazing. I'd say worthy of demo material, but that's almost a given with modern animation. There's a life and a substance to Laika stop motion in particular that takes it above CG, in my opinion. The story is not quite on the level of Coraline or Corpse Bride, but it's a very good movie.

The audio is great on this one.

Watched my copy a few nights ago and it was a great looking and sounding disc. Played it on my 106" screen with my Epson 8350 and i really loved the more mature story telling/look they went with the film. Sure they have the kid moments in there too but the overall tone wasn't too kid friendly and i applaud the studio for allowing the directors to do so. (although it is a great anit-bullying movie message wise) that It did lag a bit in the middle story wise but overall the beginning and end were pretty solid.

My daughter wants to see it ( she's 9 ) I'm trying to tell her its not exactly kid friendly.

My kids watched it, ages 6, 8 and 10. None of them gave it a thumbs up. I think it was aimed just a bit older than what I expected.
