Coraline - Movie Review

Coraline is a delightful stop-motion animation movie which, though aimed at children, like all movies of this type generally are, is just fine for adults who enjoy imaginative story-telling. Not destined to be a classic like the director's "Nightmare Before Christmas," it's nonetheless a sturdy entry that tells the story of a young girl who discovers another world that's not quite as perfect as she thinks it is. The attention to detail is painstaking, the voice-talents are, well, talented; I was surprised to learn the voice of the Russian acrobat was the tough Ian McShane, late of "Deadwood." A good one to rent. Note - we watched the 2D version; there's a 3D version on the flip-side of the DVD.

Special bonus: we used a discount card at the Redbox so we saw this for free. Not that that makes me biased or anything. No, really.
