Movie Review :: Coraline (2009)

I'm a sucker for movies that give you that wow factor. Which, in an age of stunning 3D movies and eye candy anime, seem to be a rarity.

Then you get Coraline, an instant animation classic. A combination of stop-motion animation and CG enhanced effects (though approximately 95% of it is still stop-motion). The magic of its technical approach is enough to engage you for 2 hours, but the real treat is the story itself. Nay a dull moment, the script was brilliantly written, the color palette is simply awesome (while other animations use a pack of 12 crayolas, Coraline seems to be using the whole 133 set), and the sheer creative imagination of the author is refreshing. The whole movie just ascends to one magnificent visual frame after the other as the story progresses. If I were to list my top 10 animation movies of all time, Coraline would probably be at the top 3.
