In this dreamy myth-like tale from Laika studios, Kubo is a young one-eyed Japanese boy whose mother and her strict rules have always protected him from the searching gaze of his father, the moon king, and his two creepy aunts. But now she is gone he has to rely upon an overprotective talking monkey and a giant beetle samurai to protect him until he can find three mystical pieces of armor that might protect him against his grandfather’s quest to claim his other eye. Sounds kind of crazy? Yes, but in the best way. Ask Chris, Richard, and Herman all about it.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Kubo plays a shamisen

    i respectfully disagree about Zootopia being just “solid”. I really think it’s one of the best animaed films this year. Other than that, good review

    • Chris Cox

      Clearly, Chris Herman agrees with you.

    • I agree with you. Thanks for listening!

    I do agree about the Boxtrolls though maybe not to the extent Richard does. There were a few issues but Sweet Christmas, it looked stunning! I really like the work Laika does and hope this will keep pushing the bar higher.
