Pablo Ramos's rating of the film ParaNorman

A children's movie that is in many ways more adult than most quote unquote serious horror movies I've seen so far. The animation is exemplary even beyond stop motion, and the confrontation between Norman and the witch is perhaps one of the most beautifully realized and climatic end sequences I've encountered in any animated feature. In short, ParaNorman was good to me through and through.
