Thank you Spock.

That's pretty much all you need to know about this film. It's based on a book written by Niel "Best living author" Gaiman. If you've never fallen in love with one of his comics or novels then you've been thouroughly entertained by a film based on his writings. Beowulf, Stardust and Mirror-mask are amongst the films either written by him or based on his fiction. Constantine was loosely based on a character he created but only in the smallest of ways.

Anyways, the film has a new 3-d technique that uses polarized sun-glasses (kinda) and is far superior to any 3-d I've seen before. The effect is objects which not only appear to leap out of screen but have real volume to them, the clay characters look as if they were in the room with you. Having not read the book I didn't know what to expect. Coraline is one of the best child characters on-screen that wasn't created by Roald Dahl. The world and fantasy world she inhabits is populated in the trademark Gaiman fashion. Black Magic, voodoo, talking cats and gateways to other worlds are as common place as the buttons sewn on Other-Mother's eyes.

It did get very dark near the end, dark enough that my daughter wanted to go home. I couldn't blame her, I was a bit frightened myself. Can't wait until it comes out on DVD so I can watch the ending to it, the first 90% of the film was well above par.

There also was a trailer for a film called "[URL=http://www.apple.com/trailers/focus_features/9/large.html]9[/URL]", which is basically LOTR meets sackboys meets Fallout. Elijah Wood plays a cute doll embarking on an epic quest in a post-apocaliptic/post-homo sapien world.
