Animated stop-motion movie that nicely represents Neil Gaiman's book and actually expands on the original story. Any children/family movie that don't have to resort to extended dance and/or music numbers to hide it's problems should also get praised as it clearly can stand on it's own legs without singing to get it's point across. Unique good film.
The only film I've seen apart from 'Mad Max: Fury Road' that utilized 3D technology with keen intelligence, spatially distinguishing between the work-a-day world and the "other" world. Gaiman crafts a narrative as archetypal as any real fairytale, Dakota Fanning's a pro (knowing when to be snarky and when to be vulnerable) and Selick's animation is jaw-dropping. The textures alone... A beautiful film. TMBG music too!
With a mixture of Stephen King and Roald Dahl, Coraline spins a web of surreal and scary wonders in a kid's world with stunning animation that ups the bar on what Henry Selick achieved on prior films. This is the first time where I've felt like animation has gotten closer to the horror genre and gives kids an even scarier mind trip into a girl's escape from her dull moody everyday world.
Una pellicola d'animazione che ha decisamente sbagliato il target. Per bambini? No. Per niente. Già dai primi minuti è palese che il mondo della piccola Coraline è tutt'altro che felice, una danza macabra fatta di inquietanti figure di pongo e stop-motion. La trama è discretamente originale, finale incluso, cosa buona e rara in un film d'animazione. Preparatevi ad una buona dose di inquietudine. Mr. Bobinski lo odio.
