Coraline, rhymes with valentine  

Seriously, that film was gorgeous. I cannot believe the attention to detail that went into the film (even after watching the 'making of' trailers from the website) especially in a scene where Coraline is walking through the Other House and the wallpaper peels off the wall behind her. It was just so cool looking! (It must have been a pain to animate, too.)

The voices really impressed me. Specifically, I loved The Other Mother's voice because even as her body twists into a creepy spider Black Widow nightmare, her voice keeps that sickly-sweet Mommie-Dearest-Just-Baked-You-Cookies sound that is a hundred times creepier than if her voice had gotten really raspy or shrieky. I was also utterly delighted by the inclusion of They Might Be Giants.

Also, button eyes are so creepy.

I wonder how many people in the theatre knew what to do about JERKWAD!!

I meant to go see it this weekend, but I never got around to it for some reason. I was thinking I might go see it tomorrow night after work. The theater by my house has it in 3-D, and I find that strangely exiting.

I forgot to mention the 3-D - it's really well done! It seemed really natural for the movie, making stuff jump without distracting you with "Oh, hey, they're doing that 3-D thing again."

It's totally lame that the glasses cost an extra $2.50 tho. We still had our old glasses from when we saw Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D a few years ago, but we didn't think to bring them with us. Of course, even if we did I'm sure we'd get charged for the glasses again anyway. Oh well.

Oh yeah I want to see that! There are too many movies on my "want" list though, so it might have to wait for Netflix.

This is one you should definitely see in theatres if you can. I think that when reduced to a smaller screen, it'll be hard to see a lot of the finer details, and they're so cool!

Waay cool!
Did you manage to see the movie yet?
