Geek Ink Thinks: My favourite stop-motion movies

Stop-motion movies are a pretty niche market that really doesn’t get it’s fair share of the limelight. To help rectify this horrible injustice, I decided to create a list of my favourite stop-motion movies.

Mary and Max

This is without a doubt one of my favourite movies ever! It’s a very unusual story which has quite a dark undertone, and it takes a while to get going. It gets into it’s stride around about the end of the first act and ends exceptionally well. The best way to describe this movie is bitter sweet.

ParaNorman

So awesome I watched it twice in two days. What appears to be a very child-like plot actually has many adult themes hiding just below the surface. An interesting story, combined with great characters and interesting character designs make ParaNorman a must see!

The Nightmare before Christmas

I’ll be pretty honest here and say that I haven’t watched this movie in ages, but I remember watching it after Corpse Bride came out and thinking how there was something about The Nightmare before Christmas that made it far more charming. Maybe because it was a musical. Maybe because it wasn’t directed by Tim Burton.

The Fantastic Mr. Fox

Quirky, witty, off-beat tone? Distinctly Wes Anderson. You either love him, or hate him. Considering the topic of this post, you can guess what I thought about this movie.
