3D made this movie. The animation was already pretty amazing but seeing it in 3D only added to the experience. Typically, I don’t enjoy 3D movies but the stop-motion animation of this film really benefitted from the additional dimension. Now, about the film, I really enjoyed the warm-hearted and funny story that was Paranorman. It doesn’t break out of any norms in any way but is still a very solid family film that many will enjoy. Although this wasn’t a Pixar film, it had all the great qualities of a Pixar film including solid story telling, jokes for all ages, and amazing animation. This movie was great, it was emotional, exciting, and endearing. I’m very happy I went to see Paranorman.
