My first exposure goes back a little further than that.

Some of those early ones were the stuff of nightmares. I grew up on those old Christmas specials, and they seemed wholesome then, but now they actually make me a little uncomfortable. The Laika films are incredible though. Kubo and the Two Strings, Coraline, and The Box Trolls are all really fun.

I love Jason and the Argonauts. To me the stop motion adds just a little extra creepiness to the scenes that a fluid CGI would not give you.

I never noticed this before but when they are fighting the skeletons, it sort of makes sense that chopping off their heads makes the stop, or pushing them down. But at 3:54 how does stabbing him in the chest really do anything?

I frequently ask myself the same thing about many Hollywood productions.

Yeah. Absolutely. Especially the old ones. Itís so rough. The horror genre really ran with some of those effects later. Now itís just something I associate with nightmares.

I was watching a short featurette on Fantastic Mr Fox the other day, and Wes Anderson said he insisted on using the actual hair of those particular animals, even though it would be roughed-up and changed by the animators fingers in each frame. I just thought that was neat. All his films are so whimsical.

Agreed.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kubo and the Two Strings but the stop motion is at such a stupidly high level it could have been cgi and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference.

Exactly! This new stop-motion is kind of itís own thing. They can seamlessly integrate CGI. The final product sure is charming though. They all seem to be really story-driven. Itís like theyíre not trying to fool us into thinking itís real. (Sort of the polar opposite of Lucasís pre-sequels)
