Klaus (2019 Netflix)

    It's shown up on recommendation threads here and there but never had its own thread. And I for one think it deserves one. From a Spanish independent little production company, Spa studios, a beautiful 2d animated story about how the letters to Mr Klaus got started. Won the BAFTA for best animated feature, nominated for an Oscar ahead of Frozen 2, which was sweet because Frozen 2 was the main reason they couldn't find a distributor to put the film into cinemas.
    New classic and added to the must see at Christmas list in my house.

    Just watched it this year for the first time myself. Loved it! Very nicely done all round, with a great cast too. Initially the animation didn't impress, but as it went on I really warned to it. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    Yeah was a great film. Starts off slow enough but nice wee film.
    Even the parts that would normally be considered sad were so well done that they just felt right

    Watched it this year and last with the kids. Winner all round.

    Too soon to bring this film back out?

    Really enjoyable, seen it last year based on a recommendation seen on Boards.

    Watching for the umpteenth time, it's really great, and I love the director has said there will categorically not be a sequel.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Annual reminder to put this film on your watchlist.

    Rewatched this over the weekend. A genuine modern classic.

    Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test

    Cant wait to watch this again. What a film

    I watched it again tonight. It really is a great movie.

    Oddly enough I remember when I first watched it and thought it was just OK. Must not have been paying attention too much or something.

    Just finished watching this again. Still great. Not sure what it is exactly but it just all works.

    A film I half-watched over my wife's shoulder, and found myself absorbed by it about 30 minutes in. A real hidden gem I hope gains legs over the years.

    Madness that I read Netflix cancelled this team's follow-up.

    I watched it again on Christmas day and honestly I enjoyed it even more on the 4th (I think) viewing. Its one of those films that gets better and better and word has slowly spread. I have friends who I told about this over 2 years ago who only watched it recently and loved it.

    Oh, would you look at that, is that the time? Sorry. What were you saying?

    Remains a fabulous wee Xmas movie, though also remains nuts there has been no follow-up(?) even if not from Netflix

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,405 ✭✭✭✭Electric Nitwit

    Nuts, but also perfect.

    Any sequel would dilute it, I think. Though I will admit I've thought that about many, many films and been proven wrong

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 35,167 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp

    Oh I just even mean a followup movie from the director or studio - cos I don't think there has been? Past me said netflix actually cancelled the follow-up movie, which reads insane!
