See you there!


Saw Coraline at an industry screening last night in LA, and OMFG is it beautiful. I wanted to see it again as soon as the credits rolled. Everything worked: The story, the images, the music, and yes, the 3D. I wish I was a 9 year-old again so that I could have my brain completely re-wired by this movie; as it was, my neurons certainly got a vigorous workout. I've never seen or experienced anything quite like it and, most tellingly, I can't stop thinking about it.

[Edits: 1-Check out Ivy's MUCH more comprehensive write-up here. 2-Needless to say, we do know people involved in the production, but I would have loved it to pieces anyway. 3-Don't sit too close; the 3D and animation can be a little jarring from the front row; about 1/3 back ought to do it.]
