Coraline

Has anyone else seen it yet? I am absolutely in love with this movie, finally saw it yesterday.

Everything was absolutely perfect. From the charming stop-motion animation and the level of detail it was done at to the beautiful soundtrack, it was stunning. Honestly, even if you're embarrassed to watch "kid's movies", you need to go see this. Do it. I was so desperate to see it I went with my mom. Point and laugh!

Anyways. Tell me what you guys think! Especially if you saw it in 3D, my crummy old theater didn't have it. :(

Gather light to you.
Little root, deep root
Bind the earth to you.
Mind the trunk that holds you high!
Mind the branches long and proud!
So strong stands the forest.

I'm in love with the Wikipedia summary. The movie is definitely going to be a classic.

I saw it with my wife and we both really enjoyed it. The best comparison I could make for it would be a new Alice in Wonderland, though it truly is its own creation and a classic all its own. We were lucky enough to find a theater that had it in 3d, but what made this movie great was that unlike some of the recently released 3d movies, this one didn't focus on using the 3d for cheap gimmicks but just allowed it to enrich an already great story and movie experience.

If I was a movie critic I'd give Coraline 4.5 stars out of 5, not the greatest movie I've ever seen, but it WAS a great movie. I think there's a very good chance my wife will be picking it up on dvd when it comes out.

I didn't like Stardust, but this, this was great. In terms of the medium and the production itself, this is the movie adaptation Neil Gaiman deserved. Now, let's all cross our fingers and hope one day they start movie-izing Good Omens.

Yeah, that's not a real word. Pfft. Movie-izing.
