I went to see Coraline in 3D with my sister the other week. I actually didn’t know I was going to see a movie in 3D until they handed me a pair of glasses with my ticket. This was my first 3D movie and it was quite an experience. The film is about a young girl named Coraline who finds a secret door in her house that takes her into an alternate version of her life. While it is rated PG (for thematic elements, scary images, some language, and suggestive humor), there has been much debate about whether this film actually is appropriate for children. Personally, I can see where parents would be concerned and can definitely see how young children could be scared by some of the images. However, I completely enjoyed this film. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I highly recommend seeing it. Coraline is directed by Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas). And Tim Burton, who obviously had a hand in it, designed the characters and sets.
