Movie Review: Coraline

Coraline, Grade: B+

Coraline moves into a new home with her parents in the rainy northwest. It's boring and it's dreary and her parents completely ignore; life sucks and she wishes for something more. She sure gets a whole lot more when she discovers a tiny door that leads to an alternate dimension where everyone, including her alternate parents, have buttons for eyes. Though that seems a bit weird, Coraline enjoys the attentions from her parents until....all is not how it seems.

I don't think I'll be letting my son watch this one til he's older. It's a bit scary in parts, even for me!

The animation is amazing and bright! I loved watching it!

The story teaches how to make what you've got even better and worthwhile.


  1. i loved this on the big screen and want to get the dvd to re-watch as well. it was well done and i love the teeny tiny clothes that were created for coraline. my 12 yr old thought parts of it was scary so there is something to be said about waiting to show this to kids.

  2. I didn't want to see this by myself or w/my kids. The trailer just freaked me out!

  3. My teacher said that she watched this film with her 8 and 6 year old kids. They couldn't finish it because it scared the kids a lot. It looks interesting, with a lot of weird mixed in.


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
