Trailer: The Box Trolls

posted by Nell Minow

Laika, the stop-motion animation studio behind two of my favorite films of the past ten years, “ParaNorman” and “Coraline,” has released the teaser trailer for its 2014 release, “The Box Trolls,” and it looks amazing.  Nice nod to non-traditional families as well.

    Please tell me you are kidding. You are claiming to have a mom’s “eye on media, culture, and Values” on a website for “Inspiration. Spirituality. Faith.” Yet you are acknowledgement a “nice nod to non traditional families”! What does God consider a family? What are the rules for a Christian household? First off, it does include a HUSBAND and WIFE. I can give you scripture references if you would like. I urge you to reconsider your stance, and to stand firm on what God says instead of trying to appease this world, the flesh, and their fallen nature.

      Ms. Moore, I thank you for taking the time to share your views. I will continue to support all families who practice love and compassion. There are scripture references on that, too.

    After reading your review, you have given us everything we need to know about this movie and why not to pay the price of admission. Your two favorite movies are dark depressing movies which I have seen to screen for my children and would in no way allow them to see. Lady you are clueless.

      Thanks, Mr. Brooks, then I accomplished my purpose, which was to give parents the information they need to make the decisions that are right for their families. This film is in no way depressing, but it is, like many fairy tales, myths, and other stories beloved by children from “Red Riding Hood” to the Narnia stories, not afraid to use fantasy as a metaphor that illuminates the human condition. I’m pleased that you arrived at a conclusion that suits your family as I am pleased with other parents who made a different choice.

    Hello. I am a follower of our Lord Christ and choose not to let my children see the file because of the dark theme, pseudo-sexual content, and using God’s name in vein. However, I am sad to see so may people attack you. I understand they are angry that someone who supports Christian views will also take a stance against what the Bible clearly states as sin. However, if we are truly to love like Christ loves, we need to love the person even though we don’t accept their beliefs. You may want to read 1 Corinthians 6:9 & 1 Timothy 1:10 because it does address “non-traditional” families. There are also many references to God’s purpose of marriage, so I’m not leaning on just two verses. Take care.

      Many thanks, Mr. Boothe, for the graciousness of your comment.

    I don’t find any goodness or decency in your comments, or any of what the Bible teaches or, despite your nom de comment, any truth either.
