Kubo And The Two Strings
Set in ancient Japan, a young boy named Kubo lives a quiet and normal life in a small village by the shore, until a spirit from the past appears and wreaks havoc in his life by re-igniting an age-old vendetta. This causes the gods and monsters to chase after Kubo. In order to survive, Kubo must find a magical suit of armour which was once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.

The Good, The Bad and The Two Strings:
• Fans of Laika's stop-motion animation like "Coraline, "ParaNorman" and "The Boxtrolls" would highly appreciate "Kubo and the Two Strings" due to its amazing animation style Laika is becoming recognised for.
• The storyline of the film which infuses a Japanese folk tale style and the art of origami is very deep and meaningful as it significantly deals with the themes of loss and acceptance, which is a rarity for an animation to deliver such a poignant message.
• Although the beginning might deceivingly start off at a slow somber pace, it slowly picks up and shifts into a 'treasure hunt' style story.
• The voice cast has been assigned perfectly, especially the unexpected Matthew McConaughey as the Samurai Beetle who delivers plenty of laughs with his character, where Charlize Theron as the Monkey keeps the mission rooted to reality with her authoritative character.
