Back in 2015, Mark Kermode, one of Britain's top film critics, asked an interesting question to fans of cinema - Are we in a new golden age of animation cinema? Besides Disney and even DreamWorks, there have been other studios (not just in the US, but all over the world) that have been producing some truly great animated films. And even if they don't match the box-office grosses of those produced by Disney and DreamWorks, they certainly make up for in quality of the material.

Last year was no exception. Disney delivered a double-whammy with ZOOTROPOLIS and MOANA, while a new anime movie, not produced by Studio Ghibli (who are currently in hiatus), has taken Japan by storm, YOUR NAME. Another animated film that came out in 2016 was KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, the fourth feature from the stop-motion animators of Laika, who came into the spotlight with their excellent adaptation of Neil Gaiman's CORALINE (2009).

KUBO follows the story of the titular character, a young boy who's eye went missing as a baby. When the evil Sisters appear and wreck havoc on the village where he lives nearby, Kubo must flee and embark on a journey to find the missing armour that his mysterious father once wore if he is to defeat the sinister Moon King, Raiden. But he is not alone - accompanying Kubo are Monkey (Imperator Furiosa herself, Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey, who has truly had a career comeback over the past five years).

What I really like about KUBO is that it doesn't follow the same trends that some animated films are doing to death - no dated pop-culture references, no romantic subplots, no Oscar-bait songs and no obvious comedy sidekicks (there is some humour, but it's handle rather well).

Saw this afternoon with my kids and it is easily one of the best films of this year and one of the best animated films ever. Such great storytelling told with fantastic animation unlike any Pixar film before. I hope they do more but not for very young kids however.

What a fabulous and unusual film! I went to see it at the cinema and was completely enthralled all the way through it. If you want to know how it was made there are videos on youtube, which are fascinating. The film makers certainly deserved receiving a BAFTA award. Also, the version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison fits perfectly with this film.

I am a huge fan of GOOD animation, I put capital letters for good because not all popular animated films are up to the standard of kubo and the 2 strings, everything is so right with this movie, the character driven narrative is excellent, interplay between characters are absorbing, good quest storyline, character voicing spot on. Most importantly the animation and visual scope of kubo is simply breathtaking, the movie is presented in letterbox widescreen and this adds to its epic scale because this animated film is EPIC in nature David lean type epic. Landscapes, sea, woodland all rich in detail texture, character movements are faultless yet obviously still retain that stop motion feel, Laica use face replacements for each frame so characters facial movements are especially outstanding. One particular scene involving animated origami characters on first viewing left me speechless.
And yet the film did not do that well at the box office maybe the movie is just off centre of mainstream like all the previous Laika productions, probably a good thing I would hate the company having to compromise there innovative narratives in favour of reaching a broader audience.
All of the studios movies have a familer Dark edge to them and there is no exception in this movie.
My son is currently taking a degree in animation so we go and watch all the new releases often disappointed with what we see, usually the narrative let's an animated film down.

Another superb film from the Laika studios. The attention to detail is just amazing and the storyline original. The characters were memorable and there's lots of comic moments too. This film would perhaps be more appealing for older children as there are darker moments in the film that may frighten younger audiences. I really enjoyed watching this and just wanted to soak up the artistry as it truly is beautiful.

The story is a cosmic myth. Kubo and his mother escape and hide from her sisters and father who took his eye. They live in a cave and do not go out at night. Kubo is a street performer who utilizes magic and origami to tell long tales. With an ailing mother, Kubo wonders out and the epic story begins as a quest for a sword, shield, and helmet. His companions are a monkey and a beetle. I found the story to be delightful and funny. Charlize Theron as Monkey and Matthew McConaughey as Beetle did great character voices with well written lines.
