    Wanted to add mention if anyone wants to know about the making of "Coraline" go to either http://www.coraline.com/ for the official site or go to youtube and type "making of coraline" and pretty much all of the videos that pop up are great background info. Directlink to youtube results http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=coraline+making+of&aq=o I like the videos on the offical site way better though.

    Hmm.. I wanted to add more to my review but can't so I will rant on over here. I enjoyed how dark it was, call me crazy but it was done in a non gruesome way that still allowed it to be scary. Although probably too scary for most of the younger crowd.

    Great movie, although perhaps not everyone agreed with me. In the discussion some things were cleared up for me like why the mother wore a neck brace, I totally missed that the first time. We drew some similarities to another movie, Pan's Labyrinth, that involved a fantasy world. Some felt it was a little bit slow and maybe it dragged on in certain parts, although everyone agreed the 3D aspect of the film was very well done. Total immersion is the best way to put it, not just an object or two is 3D but foregrounds and backgrounds all throughout. Some plot holes were discussed, and I say let it go... its a fantasy fairy-tale it doesn't have to make 100% sense. Plus some parallels were tied to the mother character with some real life mothers. My favorite movie so far this year.

    I'm looking forward to the comments from ya'll on this film. This isn't a bad film and technically it's very impressive but it's padded and there is no warmth in it. I didn't enjoy it very much and was glad when it was over. Of these stop-motion "family" pics that began with The Nightmare Before Christmas way back in 1993 (yep, it's been that long), the ONLY one I enjoyed was James and the Giant Peach. God Bless Roald Dahl. The 3D effects were unimpressive, too, I though.
