This weekend we have two matinees of one of my favourite movies of the year, Paranorman. The more I think about this movie the more I think that it's truly destined to become a Halloween cinematic classic. Besides for being a beautifully produced piece of animation filled with great characters and an impressive script, it also has cool monsters in it and some fun kid friendly scares. Also, in a rare twist when it comes to movies now-a-days, Paranorman is an actual original. It's not a remake, reimagining or reboot, it's not based on a book, comic, tv show, video game, toy line, board game or pre-existing movie. Shocking I know, but this is actually a brand new original piece of filmmaking.
Do yourself a Halloween themed favour and come out and watch Paranorman on October 26th or 27th at 1:30pm. Unless you don't live in Ottawa, then you should find some other means to watch it.
