Movie Review: Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

Hello All!
I am going to review a very weird, but very sweet movie today. When I started watching it I was a little bit freaked out, but then as the story went on I got used to it.
Here it is:

Kubo and the Two Strings (2016):

"If you must blink, do it now. Pay careful attention to everything you see no matter how unusual if may seem. If you look away, even for an instant, then our hero will surely perish."
Kubo is a boy who makes enough money to support him and his mother by playing his mandolin, which is magic and can make paper dance in the art of origami. He is hiding from his grandfather and aunts who have stolen his one eye and want to steal the other. His mother does the best to not let this happen. But his aunts find him and he must sent out on a journey that might save his life.
Genre: Fantasy, Animated-Claymation,
It is so amazing that this whole movie is just clay!!!
Costumes: 8, the armor is pretty cool, but my favorite is the mother's.

Script: 9, only one or two bad words. "I will not blink! Wait, do I even have eyelids?"
(After he said that I couldn't stop blinking.)

Quotes: 8, "If you're Monkey, and I'm Beetle, why don't we just call him Boy?"

Storyline: 7, This is such a sweet beautiful story, but there are quite a few scary scenes so younger children might be scared. But I really recommend it, as I said, it is a beautiful story.

Good For: Anyone who has lost a family member, Those who have to do things, Everyone.
Overall Rating: 8!
