I have cheered the uncheerable.

Paranorman - 7.5/10.
Beautifully acted, or moved, or whatever, and a lot of goodwill directed towards Norman in particular who, in other hands, would be generic misunderstood guy but is elevated beyond that with just the tiniest moments. The couple of faults with the movie are that, for an hour or so, it seems to forget that Norman can speak to the dead on the regular, and the bad guy's not very interesting except for what her existence says about Norman himself.  But in trying to make you feel something for someone – it does that pretty well.
