Coraline is a Giants fan

So Julia and I had a chance to get away this weekend, specifically, we traded off baby-sitting duties with another couple. Since Fridays are half days for me, we went to see a movie – a rare treat since Corbin was birthed. The current movie choices are a little limited so we decided on Coraline in 3D – and I’m glad I did.

In case you didn’t watch the above clip (or didn’t recognize it), that song is by They Might Be Giants (my favorite band). Any fan would realize that instantly but I hadn’t heard about it so it was a nice surprise. As for the movie, it was good too. A little dark and there are a couple of scenes I would describe as not child appropriate (think old lady burlesque – on second thought, don’t).

It was in 3D and I think it was worth the extra $2. it wasn’t all about things flying out at you and making you flinch (though there was some of that), but it gave it a real sense of seeing the movie as it happens. Since it was stop-motion animation, the 3D made it feel more real. Also, there were several 3D previews which was a nice treat.

Making up a song about Coraline
She?s a peach she’s a doll she’s a pall of mine
She’s as cute as a BUTTON in the eyes of everyone who ever laid their eyes on Coraline
When she comes around exploring Mom and I will never ever make it boring Our eyes will be on Coraline

    Grace just recommended this movie on Facebook. Although it’s not out here in Australia until May.

Have your say:
