    So I finally managed to see this thing. The 3D is dropjaw amazing. Gone are the days of cheezy waving hands in your face on occasion, Coraline puts the whole movie in your lap. I caught myself dodging on occasion.

    Unlike a few earlier modern attempts at 3D Coraline also has the story to back it up and a fanastical art style that while not directed by Tim Burton himself certainly carries his touch with it.

    Who else has seen it, and what do you think?

    It's a fantastic movie. The plot's kinda iffy and it's not my kind of story, but as the medium for the 3D technology, It worked really well. I hope they make it adaptable for home use. And the visuals are striking.

    Fun movie, beautifully animated, felt like an old-school fable come to life. I should read the Gaiman story, the wife recommends it.

    great movie, and yes, I loved how the 3-D was done. it would be doing this movie a disservice if you didn't see it in 3-D.

    A very good film. Henry Sellig did a nice job adapting this to the big screen. And if you haven't read the book, do yourself a favor and find it. It's great, as is Neil Gaiman's latest (and Newberry Award winning) 'The Graveyard Book.'

    My wife and I loved Coraline and plan on seeing it again before it leaves the theaters. I'd even like to pick up one or two of the figures, even though they are essentially cutesy dollies.

    I saw it with the kids as my Daughter LOVES the book. It was really good.

    The opening credits especially struck me as being a very impressive display of 3D movie technology. It was actually the first movie I'd ever seen in 3D. It was a very cool experience.

    Coraline was amazing. I recommend the book to everyone, too.

    In fact, I should dig up my copy of the book and re-read it some time. >>;
