    Love the ending, where Richard Ayeode goes on about free will :) 4 years 8 months ago

    This movie taught me not to understimate Laika. I didn't really think I would like it... at all. I don't think it is as good as Coraline or ParaNorman, but it's still pretty good! All the cheese references are so cute and funny, I'm going to sing the cheese song for days... 4 years 10 months ago

    The Boxtrolls is an incredibly weird stopmotion animation film, about a world where cheese is king - though make sure you don't get the "cheese fits", they're killer - and the citizens have become convinced the enemy is trolls that live in boxes. Throw in a cross-dressing villain and a boy who was raised by boxtrolls having to "white Messiah" them into action against a steampunk mech, and well, you see what I mean. If you embrace it, you'll have fun, and marvel at the artistry along the way. My favorite bits were the henchmen's philosophical discussions, and these actually inspired Laika Studios' usual "pull back the curtain" moment mid-credits, a rather wonderful sequence that pleasantly taps into the theme of free will and agency which is key to the film, AND metatextually reveals the truth of the puppets' existence. 3 years 10 months ago
