J. O.'s rating of the film ParaNorman

One of the most gorgeous and luscious animated films of the past decade, if not of all time. Brilliant stop-motion work, a great story, chilling monsters, and quirky humour, "Paranorman" is great little movie. It pays homage to many 70s and 80s work of horror and science-fiction, not to mention that (for me) its style and detail loosely echoed the work of Jiří Barta and Jan Švankmajer.
