Avis pour Paranormanas

Fans of Aardman’s handcrafted style of animation will find much to enjoy in this wonderfully stylized stop-motion comedy-horror-thriller about a little boy named Norman who sees dead people, or at least their ghosts.

The young boy in “ParaNorman” suffers from what you might call “Sixth Sense” syndrome, which is the ability to see and communicate with dead people. There are plenty of dead people for him to encounter, too: he lives in New England...

The poor kid has no choice but to continually think about death; he is quite literally surrounded by it. For you see, Norman Babcock (voice of Kodi Smit-McPhee), the haunted hero of ParaNorman, can see ghosts. Perhaps worse, he can have full...

ParaNorman is funnier than any of those works, mixing the macabre material with juvenile angst John Hughes might have dreamed up. Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) has typically befuddled parents and a belligerent teacher.

ParaNorman is Laika Entertainment's second big screen release (after 2009's Coraline) and feels nearly as accomplished as their debut. I never thought I'd be nostalgic for stop-motion animation (Sinbad represent!), but having sat through just about...

Eleven-year-old Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) did not ask for the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. Why would he? This young horror film fan surely would have seen “The Sixth Sense” and known that Haley Joel Osment doesn’t exactly spend...

It is not hard to imagine certain audience members not appreciating a movie like PARANORMAN. The stop motion animated feature is drenched in horror references and it even offers a few jokes that might not sit well with some parents.

Although not for the very young or easily frightened, PARANORMAN is the surprise of this summer’s animation schedule. This tale of ghosts, zombies, witches and one young boy who can talk to them all is funny, engaging, and creatively animated.

Stop-motion animation is a tedious, time-consuming process, and the effort required to meticulously set up and move tiny models one frame at a time often lends the final result a feeling of handmade care.

Modern animated films often come in suspiciously similar batches that indicate studios are keeping a wise eye on the competition: Antz and A Bug’s Life were released in close proximity, as were Finding Nemo and Shark Tale, and Madagascar and The Wild.

Much of the fun of the stop-motion animated comedy "ParaNorman" lies in the whimsical physical detail of its characters. Norman, the skinny 11-year-old at the center of the story, has ears like saucers and hair that stands up on end, as if he's been...

If you were as underwhelmed by the last couple of Pixar features as I was, try the spectacular-looking “ParaNorman,’’ which marries Pixar’s formerly sophisticated storytelling style to the mordant wit of Tim Burton’s animated projects.

“ParaNorman” is the latest film from Laika, the studio behind one of my favorite films “Coraline”. It is a 3D stop-motion animated adventure but may be too scary for the kids and not entertaining enough for the adults.

Ingenious and wonderfully detailed, though better in its imaginative horror than its slightly too-broad comic knockabout. It’s not quite on the level of Coraline, but it’s proper summer fun with some dark delights.
