The Boxtrolls

{5/5} “You’re the worst pickpocket I’ve ever seen… Here. Buy a book on how to be a better thief.”

The Boxtrolls, released in 2014

Humans and boxtrolls don’t get along very well — humans think boxtrolls steal their babies and eat them, and boxtrolls are afraid of humans and only come out at night. Boxtroll numbers are dwindling — the boxtroll exterminators have gotten good at their job. But one of them isn’t really a boxtroll — he’s a human that’s been raised as one. The movie is filled with glorious Tim Burton-esque stop-motion animation. It’s thrillingly original and screamingly funny. Stars the voices of Ben Kingsley and Richard Ayoade.
