FREE MOVIES PASSES: See “Kubo & the Two Strings” ON ME!

The summary for Kubo and the Two Strings reads like an awesome old-school Bruce Lee movie. This is what I copied from IMDB.com: “A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.”

Oh yeah, and he battles demons using a magical instrument, called a shamisen.

See what I mean?

Kubo and the Two Strings is also the latest from Laika Studios, which brought us cool stop-motion projects, like The Boxtrolls and Coraline, AND it’s Matthew McConaughey’s debut performance in an animated feature. Pretty cool, right?
