In the world of movies, nothing is more immediately interesting than eye catching graphics, and in the realm of computer animation, no one is more distinct than Laika Studios. While I managed to catch their rendition of Coraline, I’m still kicking myself for never sitting down and watching ParaNorman. (Maybe I’ll put that on my resolution list for New Years.) After 2014’s Boxtrolls, I wasn’t sure when we would hear from them again, or what to even expect. However, in all my thoughts, I don’t think I would have guessed something like Kubo and the Two Strings.
When you were a kid, what cartoons did you watch after school or on Saturday mornings? If you were like me, you watched Digimon (or Card Captor Sakura, but I’ll save that for another Thursday). The 1999 cartoon was the first anime I ever watched, and to this day, it remains a nostalgic favorite. With a sequel/reboot, Digimon Adventure Tri, coming out soon, I wanted to share what I liked so much about the show’s first season, Digimon Adventure.
Hey, did you guys know that Keanu Reeves is Japanese? Or that people in feudal Japan spoke English? Yeah, I didn’t either. I’m so glad racism is dead and whitewashing is over.
