Coraline

Posted by Strider on Monday, February 9, 2009

Did anyone else see Coraline this weekend?

I saw the film in digital 3D, and it was gorgeous! It made everything feel a little bit more alive and tangible. It was almost as if I could touch all the characters and sets. I've seen some other animated movies in 3D, but I think it really adds something more to stop-motion.

The movie itself was a little slow, but I was never bored. The character designs were very cool, especially the ones they didn't show in the trailers. I really liked how the film played on the differences between the real world and the fantasy world. The movie got pretty creepy at times, and I loved that.

What did you guys think of it?

I saw it, but I didn't get to see it in 3-D. I went to the place one would expect it to be showing in 3-D, but they were just showing the standard version.

I did see the 3-D preview for it some months back. It looked nice.

I'm lucky enough to have two different Carmike theaters in town. Both theaters are now completely digital which means we get pretty much every 3D movie that comes out. Unfortunately that also means we get crap like the 3D Jonas Brothers movie in a few weeks.

Maybe this movie could've been called Whatever Became of Benjamin's Buttons.

YUM-O!
I lurrrved it. (fuck me, I sound like a fat redhead)

Seriously, I was an instant fan of the novel, and Selick's stop motion was the perfect medium to tell this tale. I enjoyed the changes that Selick made and felt they worked really well. I saw it in 3-d, but I really can't see 3D due to a weird eye problem, so I can only say that my daughter was impressed by it.

It was absolutely worth a full-price admission. Twice.

Could this weird eye problem be caused by the button you sewed on to it?

or the near constant masturbation? You know they say you'll go blind if you keep doing that.

Finally got to see it in 3-D, too. Didn't really add all that much to the experience.

You should watch Little Man in 3-D. It's truly amazing!
