Movie review: 'Kubo' (with video trailer)
Even in this heyday of computer-animated movies, the greatest special effect is creating emotionally resonant characters. The adventure fantasy “Kubo and the Two Strings” is seamless stop-motion storytelling, from Laika, the independent animation

It's 1943, and Sphere War II is raging. To escape the terror of the Blitz, ten-year-old Wesley and fourteen-year-old Charles were evacuated from England to America. After a few near misses with German U-boats and a treacherous scads crossing, the brothers arrived in Virginia. The culture shock is intense as the London boys adjust to rural farm viability and have to learn new sports, customs, and spellings, plus contend with racial segregation and bullying. As time goes by, the brothers begin to adapt to their new truth and blaze their own trails, writing letters home, making new friends, and pitching in to the American war effort. But just when Wes and Charles think they are protected from the terror of the battles raging thousands of miles across the sea, they encounter the very brand of soldiers they were trying to escape: Nazis, from a POW camp-ground right around the corner and U-boats torpedoing American ships off the nearby Atlantic coastline. Suddenly, Charles, Wesley, and their new Virginian m must face the dangers of a foreign war coming too close to home. Award-winning author L.M. Elliott brings a rarely told report of World War II on U.S. soil to light in this gripping and meticulously-researched novel, a companion to the belovedUnder a War-Torn Sky. Praise for Across a War-Tossed Sea'likable protagonists and a fascinating reliable backdrop combine for a story well-told."-Kirkus Reviews "Serious issues of intolerance (religious freedom in Europe, racism in America, cruelty to German POWs) penetrate the story without overwhelming it, making this a breezy and enlightening read. The occasional letters from the brothers to their father overseas are a nice press, portraying an accurate kid's-eye-view of a terrible time in history."-Booklist "This historical novel would be a perfect fit for
Over the past 11 years I've made 3 attempts at visiting the park, all unsuccessfully. This would be #4. And things were looking up (although in the original planning stages it seemed like I might in fact go 4 for 4. And then once the park did actually open for the 2016 season. failed to open. Ugghhh) While Conneaut seemed to do fine as a small locals park for over 100 years. In the mid 90's and into the 00's the park had been ravished with bankruptcies, fires/arson, losing dozens of rides, and going in and out of business. Either failing to make set opening dates. or just not opening at all, for seasons at a time. Yet somehow the park seems to get another one last chance. A second chance of second chances. That being said, every year the park does indeed successfully open, I get nervous in not finding a way to work it into my plans. The park is typical only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and they don't seem to publish any operating schedule or even opening day, until a week or so before just. As with most others in the enthusiast community , I wonder just how much more life this park has as it continues its saga into its 125th season. But Timmy Ho's is amazing and I forget that they have stores in the Northeast/ Northern Midwest <3. Well, after shoving a half dozen donuts down my throat while drinking a massive iced tea. I made the short 3 mile drive down into Conneaut Lake, PA and onward to the park where Mark, who I hadn't seen since last fall. would be waiting for me. Conneaut Lake is home to one of just two reaming Traver Tumble Bugs (annddd I rode both, in the same day. ) prior to my ride on this one. I hadn't ridden one in some 16 years, when Whalom Park still had theirs. After Whalom closed the ride was moved to down to Edaville USA and left to rot in their parking lot for nearly 10 years until it was tragically scrapped. (I saw it still at Edaville in 2005 and was hopeful the ride would run again. The ride seemed somewhat slower than what I remembered from Whalom. but I still laughed a bunch and was grateful to get to ride it. It seems to be one of the more hit-or-miss rides at Conneaut as the park continues its cycle of Operating, Operated, SBNO. The coaster is one of just two reaming Vettel coasters. (I managed to ride the other one last summer. It also has two trains, the one in use today is the NAD built train from the 60's. It used to feature a 4 car train but has since been shorten to 3 cars. From old reviews online the coaster once featured the most legendary of airtime. The coasters other train is one of the original 1938 trains (The Red train seen behind the NAD train) last used around 2003. Apparently it tracks much better. And what seems like it would have been an adult sized ride plot. Even in the last 10 years or so the park was home to a Scrambler, Eli Wheel, and Round-Up. This plot looks like it would have been for a Spider ride (since it would be round but only need to load in the front half. ) I found a video showing a Spider running at the park. But couldn't tell where it was located at. Maybe one day the park can truly get back on its feet and invest in replacement rides for some of these plots. (I'd love to see them go out and get 4 or 5 classic flats and almost run the place like a living amusement museum. Like how Rye was for a while. But there are still a lot of other classic rides to be ridden in the park. I wanted to take a ride on the Bessemer and Lake Erie Miniature Train as it pretty much does a lap around Blue Streak and seemed like a good way to get photos of the ride that is otherwise in the woods. So we waited for it to return but something happened and we were told it would be closed for 45 minutes to an hour. Yup, Conneaut Lake Park. I came here for one thing and one thing only, Blue Streak. But I left with a real appreciation for the struggles this park has gone through and a real sense that its a place that could disappear off the face of the earth and what a true loss that would be. There really aren't any other parks like Conneaut... The whole time I walked down its Midway's it made me think of how Whalom Park was for me growing up (albeit not as ' run down ' ((if that is the right way to describe it))) and how devastating it was for me when that park closed for good after its...
