ParaNorman

(PG) ★★★☆☆

The latest film to employ stereoscopic 3-D stop-motion animation happens to be one of the summer’s most enjoyable. In the Salem, Mass.-styled town of Blithe Hollow, young Norman has the Sixth Sense problem: He sees dead people. One of his ghosts, Mr. Prenderghast, is desperate to share a secret involving the town’s witch curse. There’s a zombie invasion as Norman and his band of misfits race to solve the riddle and save the town, all the while the filmmaking choices work.

Hemlock

By Sean DeFrank

It’s nearly impossible to growl and smile at the same time, but Chad Smith came damn close to pulling it off. There was no mistaking the good time Hemlock’s founding front man/bassist was having as he engaged the crowd—tugging his dreadlocks out to each side, pounding his fist on his chest, bulging his eyes out and pogoing up and down—and the audience reciprocated with some high-energy cheer of its own.
