Coraline

Q: Is Coraline worth going to see in the theater?


A: Oh my gods yes. Run, don't walk. May want to leave kids under about 8-9 years old at home. But do go see it. It's insane (in the good way). Also gorgeous. The words "instant classic" would not be inappropriate.

Special bonus for garden bloggers: the parents (Teri Hatcher and John Hodgman) are garden writers, who for the first part of the film are working on writing a gardening catalog. There are scattered gardening references throughout the film. The big reveal of the "Other" world's garden alone is worth the price of admission. Seriously.

could not agree more - not worth seeing on DVD when it comes out - must see it in 3D and preferably on a quiet night when you get great seats and a more "mature" audience. Definitely check out some of the video online of how the movie was made first...it makes the experience of the movie so much better.
