"The results are nothing short of magical. Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club
"Thankfully, Coraline is appropriately dark, and like its inspiration, is only a children's movie by the thinnest of margins. Tracie Cooper, TV Guide
Editor's NoteAs covetous children are often warned: "Be careful what you wish for." It?s this very cautionary wisdom that sets the stage for Henry Selick?s CORALINE, an eerily eye-popping stop-motion animation tale of fractured dreams and families made whole. As the films opens, Coraline Jones (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and her parents (Teri Hatcher, John Hodgman) have moved into the Pink Palace, a once-vibrant boarding house that?s turned drab and dilapidated. As her parents work feverishly on a new gardening catalog, the bored and belligerent Coraline is admonished to explore her new world?s possibilities. Along the way she meets her fellow tenants, including two aging English showgirls and a mouse-training Russian acrobat, as well as an outcast neighborhood boy named Wybie. But it is a mysterious hidden door that most piques Coraline?s interest--a gateway to a parallel world where her "other" parents and neighbors live only to see Coraline well fed and endlessly entertained. All is not cakes and carnivals for Coraline, though, and the black buttons that have replaced the eyes of these otherworldly imitations hint at darker intentions. When these intentions are revealed, Cora and a friendly magical cat use their wits and willpower to defeat Coraline?s wicked "other mother" and restore balance in the real world. Based on Neil Gaiman?s beloved children?s novel, director Selick (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) uses the stop-motion technique to bring CORALINE to life with amazing visual and emotional depth. The result is a frightfully magical adventure that will give the whole family plenty to shriek, cheer, and talk about.

|The imagination is allowed to run rampant in Coraline, a spooky and satisfying gorgeous piece of stop-motion animation from Henry Selick, who also directed The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. The amount of work that goes into a project like this is absolutely staggering – the shoot apparently lasted for more than 18 months, with two years of pre-production before that – and the end result is a film that engages the mind’s eye thoroughly. The film provokes near-constant senses of both delight and unease; it’s not hard to imagine most younger children being terrified at this movie, but that dichotomy fits the themes of the film very well....read the full review|
