Coraline


This stop-motion animation film was a lot of fun! It would have been killer in 3D had that been available...(took me about a half hour into the movie to get over that one). While the offbeat humor skated over most of the young children there, my friends and I had frequent fits of giggles--the guy who sat beside me seemed to catch on too. Always quirky, sometimes creepy, Coraline* was a charming way to spend a Friday evening (and $9.50--geez!).


*Though linked to (they worked together on The Nightmare Before Christmas), this is not a Tim Burton film. It hails from Henry Selick, who while sharing a style that is rather similar, obviously trades in Burton's dreary palate for lush, popping colors.
