Coraline!

I went and saw it again with my sister last Friday and have decided that I want need the soundtrack. The film is indeed very good, so I decided to pick the book up (kid’s books are so cheap, I wish all of my books only cost $6) and…holy crap. They actually watered down the movie a LOT, if you can believe it. The book actually gave me…not quite a nightmare but a very screwy dream indeed. It’s kind of like a more modern Alice in Wonderland, if Wonderland wanted to eat Alice for dinner and Alice was a little bit more badass. The movie is a visual feast (with wonderful backing music), and the book is intensely atmospheric. Not to mention it was made by a tiny studio and you have to love that.

Is it bad that watching this trailer makes me want to see it AGAIN?
