ParaNorman was a nice surprise. It tackles some weighty subjects with some good advice in the format of a fun and entertaining feature that appeals to kids. I give it high marks for the whole family.

This movie appears to be a ok movie from the trailer, but is not a movie for younger kids. How do I put this nicely, there is a lot of immoral and improper content. Not derogatory like a lot of movie are today. In this one they just come right out and throw it in your face. Needless to say I wanted to walk out in the first fifteen minutes.

Dark movie, guilt-ridden or clueless characters and very loud. Not much humor and writing was flat. Reminded me of Monster House, but not as clever. NOT for kids under 10.

We all loved the movie. The movie was funny and the acting was excellent. An interesting take on the Salem Witch trials. This movie is for everyone.

I went in fully expecting a fun kids movie. It succeeded at that! But what I wasn't expecting were great characters and a very grown up plot. Once things start to reveal themselves halfway through the movie, the movie goes to another level. The kids will love the humor and zombies. But the parents will love the very touching story, darker themes, and twist ending. It should be up for an Oscar. Really. That good.
