Jason watches PARANORMAN

The makers of CORALINE have made another brilliant stop-motion animated kids movie about the supernatural. In this case, it's Norman and his gift of being able to see--and talk to--ghosts. And that makes him kinda weird, kind of an outcast, and an easy target for bullies. But it turns out his skills will be necessary when an old witches curse raises the dead. It was cool, a whole lot of fun, and some pretty good messages about respecting weirdos and the danger of fear leading you to say or do something you'll regret.

But I don't really want to give away any more. Just trust me that it's as cool and as fun as it looks like. Also, watch through the very end credits for a cool time-lapse photography scene showing the creation the Norman figure.
