'Boxtrolls' and 'Boxtrolls - 3D' - High-Def Digest Review
 
E has reviewed the 2D and 3D Blu-ray releases of 'Boxtrolls'. He says this Laika production enchants and mesmerizes. Recommended in either edition!

I completely disagree with this review. I found this to be not only one of the worst movies of 2014, but one of the most bland and lackluster animated movies in a long time.

Looking forward to getting this one next week. I tend to agree with E many times on the movie itself portion. Kain obviously disagrees but to each their own.

Already have the UK 3D version pre-ordered.

I totally agree. I was looking forward to it and lasted maybe 15 minutes. It was a snoozefest.

One of the issues I had with Paranorman (same company) was its lack of any real soundtrack. It was pretty much uber quiet, with mostly dialogue. It made that film almost unwatchable, to me, and boring as hell. Does Boxtrolls actually have a good soundtrack, with music, even if front heavy, or is it just like Paranorman?

This review helps me make the blind buy a bit more easy. Thanks!! Looking forward to seeing it.

Really looking forward to this, saw it in the Theater at a place that had simply horrid projection. Can't wait to see it in it's full, disgusting, glory.

Hats off and a wheel of cheese to Laika for making movies for kids that are grimy, creepy and gross.
