I really liked the teaser they were playing in theaters for awhile showing just how much stuff they have to make for these stop-motion movies.

I was going to take my daughter to this, if only because of the lack of anything for young children at the theater in quite a while, but then free passes to a screening of the Book of Life last weekend showed up in my email, so we went to that instead. I might still take her to this, but we weren't in a rush to see it this weekend anymore, since we just went to the movies last weekend.

I watched the Blu-ray on Friday and the movie rocked and the stop motion animation was epic. It's a trip, because the only thing that looks like its stop motion are the mouths and when they speak but the figures in motion are flawless.


The Blu-ray was of reference quality, too.
