I can't find a screenshot, but very close to the beginning of "Kubo and the Two Strings" the young protagonist goes into his village and passes two old men playing Go.

Not related to plot, and not remarked upon in any way, but it was nice to see :)

Amazon's TV series 'The Man in the High Castle' is set in an alternate reality in which Germany/Japan won World War II and have split control of the USA. There's a scene in the first episode in Japanese-controlled San Francisco where main character Juliana walks past two Japanese men playing what appears to be Go.

Humans: Season 2, Episode 2. Head of Global Synthetics, Milo Khoury, plays Go with Eric, the son of one of his employees, while waiting for Athena Morrow, an AI researcher, to show up for his recruitment pitch. The game finishes as Morrow arrives, and Khoury tells her that he plans on hiring Eric as soon as he graduates from high school. Paraphrasing: Khoury then tells Morrow that there are more possible moves in Go than atoms in the observable universe and that such facts put into perspective humanity's insignificance.

A tiny bit more description of the scene would be nice?

Relating go to politics. Also, a reminiscence of an 18 stone game from a top pro.

Another link where the person makes a more in depth comparison of go and politics. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/03/0 ... -and-White He even talks about some go proverbs. :) One annoying thing: he calls sente leading hand. :( I guess you could say that Trump kept sente throughout most of this campaign. ;)

Sente is to gain tempo, gote is to lose it.

Hi Bill, any rough estimate of the author's (peak) Go level ?

He's 7k AGA (though he hasn't played a tournament in 8 years) and told me a while ago that he was 5k KGS.

Wikipedia says Kubo & the 2 Strings is 3D stop motion -- does that mean claymation ? No CG, all done by hand (literally) ?!

Not claymation, but little 3-d puppets -- there's an interesting video here:

[youtube]https://youtu.be/plXmbLAUTRg[/youtube]

They have a great demonstration of how the puppets are made, or how motion works, at the end of each of their films (I'm thinking of Paranorman and Boxtrolls, and Coraline in particular).

Thanks. So much work. :)
We're so lucky someone found out about Go and hand-crafted it into the movie.

One has to assume that the other go bowl was broken, and they use the lid in place of the black bowl.

Well, in this case it could be not a question of memory but perhaps of perspective, mh? ;)

When I saw this in the theatre, I assumed it was computer animated because of the incredible job they did with the detail of the art. After a while I started to notice that the frame rate was slower than standard, making the individual frames visible when there was quick motion on screen. Then I spent the rest of the movie marveling that it was stop-motion!
