Even though it said 3D I didn't know this was 3D until I got it but it's the best movies like Nightmare Before Christmas I like. It doesn't have all the singing and I love the story and just the way it was made. It was creative and wonderful!!!

Coraline is a delightfully unusual and sometimes creepy film, with an imaginative storyline and a wonderfully terrible villain. Is it too scary for kids? That depends on your children, my 8, 12 and 16 year olds all loved1 `

Firstly, whether this is appropriate for your kid depends entirely on the individual child, you should know what your child is reading/watching/finds scary. I liked it a lot and found some parts very creepy; my friend agreed that if we saw it in 3D we might have screamed (grown women). It's definitely an age group above Nightmare Before Christmas, not only for content but because of the pace. There are parts that seem slow, but it's due to being tethered to Coraline and revealing things from her viewpoint. Much of the action springs from her being bored and isolated, so the audience has to experience some of that.
The stop-motion work is gorgeously macabre and imaginative, and the voices are spot-on. Another reviewer is tired of sassy kids solving all the problems while adult characters are clueless or absent--where have you been, that's the premise of almost any fantasy with a child protagonist or there'd be no story. No Oz, no Alice, Zathura, Spiderwick, Narnia, etc. Lighten up; I still identify with those protagonists and I'm almost 30. Coraline's love for her parents gives her the courage to face a very powerful wicked force, and to forgive her mom for losing her temper under stress.

Delightlfully Trippy Movie, But Don't Be Enticed by the 3D F
K. Carlson | 08/05/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"My husband and I rented the dual sided version of the film a couple days ago as well as bought two pairs of the dual color 3D glasses.

The film was absolutely beautiful designed and animated. It was also delightfully balanced between trippy and creepy. I'd definitely say that if parents have young children, they should preview the film prior to showing it and use their personal judgment. The narrative has the same threads of menace that haunts original Brother's Grimm tales. The film at times can be rather disturbing. My husband and I humorously traded off with the line, "That is messed up!" several times through out the film. My only critique with the film is that the resolution falls too swiftly and maybe too neatly into place.

The reason my review is three stars is that I fail to see the reason behind packaging the DVD with a 3D version of the film. Even on a HD plasma with unimpaired vision, the dual colored glasses just did not work for me at all. I knew going in that the home television would lose the incredible effect of what dual projection in a theater could create, so I didn't have high expectations. I was merely curious if the industry had gotten better at implementing it over time.

I went in to watching the 3D version expecting to at least get a sense of scene depth similar to an old school View-Master. Unfortunately, I didn't even get that. None of the 3D effects worked for me. Even with a darkened room, my eyes would water while they constantly fought to refocus and make sense of the dual colors. I had to stop watching after about twenty minutes in, because my eyes were just exhausted. The 3D versions also dulls the color scheme. This really doesn't do the original film justice at all. It was rather shocking to see the vivid color difference switching from 3D to the 2D version.

In Conclusion: Skip the 3D gimmick and enjoy the 2D version."
Delightfully creepy

"This uncommon animation starts with tween-aged angst, the kind that demands independence but still wants mom and dad close by. Her busy parents don't have much time for her, though, and her new, remote home doesn't offer much reward for her explorations (other than some rather kooky neighbors). So, even if it's not wholly conscious, Coraline wishes for a nicer place and parents that pay more attention.

As the movie's tagline says, "be careful what you wish for." Like Alice down the rabbit hole, Coraline finds a secret passage to a more magical place. Soon, however, the magic turns dark. That's where the brilliant animation really comes into its own. The stop animation (or at least the look of it) bring to mind Tim Burton with a macabre touch of Brothers Quay. You know your child best - skittish ones might find some of the imagery a bit much. Still, kids' stories (like Alice in Wonderland) have always had dark edges. That deliciously spooky sense, plus some great animation, really set this movie apart from the usual.
