Kubo and the Two Strings review is up!

Not in the review, but for those like me originally confused by it when they heard it...(very, very mild spoiler ahead)
Ben, in his review, wrote:...(the) designs are quite striking visually, making some of the vocal casting tougher to relate to; occasionally there seems to be something of a slight disconnect between the voices and the characters, particularly Charlize Theron’s Mother in human form.
(As) a monkey-like creature who turns out to be his Mother reincarnated, Theron has much more fun and invests herself more, although her highpoints are more the humorously abrasive attitude she has rather than any great animation vocalist skill.
