Kubo and the Two Strings

This glorious, stop-motion animated cartoon comes to us from the company behind 2009's Coraline and 2012's ParaNorman. Inspired by Asian mythology, the film takes us into the fantasy-filled world of a young, would-be warrior who must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past. Aiding him on his quest are Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey). Since it's not based on any specific myth, the story gets a bit generic. But the animation is impeccable. 101 minutes PG.
