Coraline is a brilliant mix of humor and playful spookiness. As a stop-motion animation fan, I think Coraline stands alone as the best. The animation is miraculous and the story, voice work and music are truly inspired - and creepy! Unlike many other films of this kind, it is also a genuine feature length film at 1 hour, 40 minutes. Coraline earned a reputation for being frightening for children around 10 years old and younger and many parents complained that their kids had nightmares after seeing it. Some might consider it a movie for children but it has a PG rating and having seen it many times in the theater, I know that the audiences were mainly adults.

As far as the 3D Blu-Ray package? The 3D is awesome and the special features are excellent with plenty of interviews and behind-the-scenes material. Of the many films that I have reviewed, Coraline is probably the easiest to award 5 stars.

Note about 3D: Coraline was originally released for home viewing with the old-style red-green glasses and it was pretty awful. The proper 3D wasn't ready for the intended release date (as I remember) and they decided to include the inferior 3D (not the best decision). But the current 3D blu-ray has super quality 3D, just like the theatrical version.

Final note: Beware to those who have koumpounophobia! If you have a fear of plastic buttons with holes (yes, this is a genuine phobia), then stay away from this one.

Coraline has become rather a classic of the genre. It's dark, scary and funny. Characters are complex and well constructed. The 3D is a worthwhile feature.
Typically and quirkily Tim Burton, I can watch this time after time

This movie gets better with repeated viewings. The careless ease with which these inanimate puppets 'live' is testament to the brilliance of the animators. The 3D is practically without peer. If ever there was a reason to watch a movie right to the end of the credits, this is it.

Coraline SET the bar for movies, and this was done in TRUE Tim Burton style, and another movie that keeps me looking forward to what his warped mind can come up with next.

Kids like it, and we've seen it a couple times, one of the best ones to have in 3D

Great movie, as always. This particular dvd comes with a normal version on 1 disk, and a 3D version on another disk. You need a 3D tv to use that option, I thought it was just using 3D glasses but both disks will work regardless.
