I just got home from seeing Coraline. I knew I would love this movie for it's beautiful colors, plot and design. I had no idea I would love it as much as I did! Coraline probably isn't for everyone, and I can see a lot of people not liking it. Luckily, I saw it in 3D (which is hard wearing 3D glasses over my already giant glasses) and that made it all the better. Coraline was so beautiful, I was grinning ear to ear the entire time. Fortunately I had a little girl sitting next to me who kept dancing during the movie. She loved it too! One of my favorite parts of this film was the soundtrack. It felt like a mysterious Joanna Newsom. My favorite song is above in the youtube video. I rushed home and bought this song immediately because I couldn't stop thinking about it. Such a beautiful song, and such a beautiful film!

I went to a lecture by Neil Gaiman and he talked about Coraline and whatnot. Then I got the books Stardust and Coraline with his signature. It was a really great lecture. He's a swell guy.
