It's very seldom you see a film go out of its way to make so many of its characters visually unappealing and still have them command themselves with an unmistakable air of charisma. Even though the characters lovingly display each little greasy hair or smear of dirt, there are many of them you could stand to hug- even if you can almost smell the cheese on them.

Our story takes place in a town called Cheeseridge, a little dairy-centric town that's full of delicious puns and scary looking monsters called Boxtrolls. The boxtrolls live in a commune underground and come out at night to scavenge for trash and spare parts, which they use to create beautiful inventions of their own. The town is disgusted by them and fears them, despite their harmless, bug-eating nature.

Our main character is a filthy little orphaned child who is raised by the Boxtrolls, and the story follows his quest to clear their reputation before the town's exterminators polish the last of them off.

It's got more than a few succinct criticisms of how politics in general operate, and also more than a few Monty Python references. Although clearly revelling in its own grotesquery, the movie is never really too graphic or gratuitously gross where it doesn't need to be. It's a sort of sophisticated grossness that goes exactly as far as it needs to go. One notable distinction I can give to the movie: It has a running gag about lactose intolerance that doesn't include a SINGLE fart joke. Granted, the characters in the movie already look like they smell bad enough, but I did leave the theater thinking what a marvel it was that despite having characters that live in a sewer, it didn't ever resort to "toilet humor."

Because even though the story is simple and the dark, macabre appeal is there, it's got a good brain and a good heart. Even visually appealing characters like the female lead have their own dark side, and she gleefully talks about rivers of blood and exploded guts in her cute little pink victorian dress.

I liked the film enough that I'm tempted to go watch it twice. It's very Roald Dahl in tone and very 'Stinky Cheese Man' in aesthetic, and very Monty Python in humor- and very, very fun to watch.

Nightmare Before Christmas fanart. Has it been done before? Probably but I couldn't get the image out of my head. I feel like this is what the movie makers would have wanted to do with the clown's design but couldn't get away with it. But I don't know for sure, truth be told I haven't ever dug through any of the concept art for the movie. Although it IS a favorite.

It's unclassy to ask, yes, I know, but I don't intend to spend them on stuff for ME. I love giving presents, surprise subscriptions and gifts and whatnot. If I wanted crap from this site I'd just buy it myself. But because I don't want to exchange my real money for digital fake money, I'm asking you, my lovely visitors, to dump any points here you don't want.
It's for a good cause, namely, making it easier for Dani to randomly give shit to her friends.

Nope. I'm stuck in ND. We have similar weather, though! I think we usually get lower low-temps but Michigan gets more snow.
