The family and I recently had the chance to screen the movie The Boxtrolls. We enjoyed the family-friendly flick at home through digital streaming. The Boxtrolls comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD January 20, 2015.
The animation displays real drawings coming to life. The details in the graphics were amazing. It was fascinating to see all the gadgets the Boxtrolls would find in the trash and make useful. My son loves robotics so watching all the creations being built by the Boxtrolls was interesting to him.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes in the family event movie The Boxtrolls, an entertaining, energetic, Dove-approved family film with a strong moral worldview that teaches positive lessons about doing the right thing and judging people by their “gentle and quiet spirit” as opposed to their outer appearance.
Starring, in voice performance, Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead Wright (Game of Thrones), and Elle Fanning (Maleficent), the new movie from animation studio LAIKA, the makers of the Academy Award®-nominated Coraline and ParaNorman, comes to Blu-ray™ 3D and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD & DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet on January 20, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, the Boxtrolls are unique creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs in a fantastical charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when the evil Archibald Snatcher schemes to capture Eggs’ family, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty new friend Winnie to save the Boxtrolls!
Based upon the book Here Be Monsters!, The Boxtrolls features valuable discussion of “good versus evil” and is funny, clever, exciting, and sometimes even profound. It contains some edgy content is recommended for viewers 12 and over.
The message that was delivered in this movie was a heartwarming one. Not to judge others, don’t always believe what you hear and that family sticks together were the sentiments that we took away.
