Can't Take My Eyes Off Coraline!

The songs are all stuck in my head, and I had the most fantastic dreams last night, thanks to this wonderful little bit of genius. I can't say enough about how awesome this movie is! Foreshadowing. Symbolism. All my favorite dorky literary things.

Go see it. Now. I'm not kidding.

You will so adore this little blue-haired misfit, and all that surrounds her. Especially if you can appreciate Alice's character. Seriously awesome, people.It's beyond creepy and delightful. Gorgeously ugly. Suprising and funny. Just perfect. Tim Burton cries a little every time he hears it mentioned. I'm sure of it.Okay. Since I'm not willing to ruin anything for you. I'm going to stop yammering on and repeating myself. Coraline rocks! Just go see it. For me?

  10. Bon Don- Mutual admiration is a beautiful thing. :P

    Lilu- Excellent decision.

    I should so be getting paid for Coraline promotion. I mean, really.

  11. I really want to see it but I don't think I will pay to see it. >_< just how I am. If she is anything like Alice, I don't know how much I will like her. I've always held a grudge against Alice for various reasons. But I feel that Coraline has a bit more spunk.

  12. Girl Anachronism- Oh no. Coraline's way spunkier than Alice, and not just a whiny fuss pot. She's equally discontented with the boring everyday, but with reason. Her adventure is equally as creepy and interesting, though.

    She's a go getter. You'll like her.

    Sorry if the Alice correlation threw you off.

  13. I liked it.

    It was very similar to Alice in Wonderland... following rodents through tunnels, talking cats, etc.

    But, I agree that Coraline was a bit more... proactive(?) than Alice. Spunky is a good word.
