Who's seen this? I didn't realize it was a book!


I'm curious is it appropriate for a 6 year old? Reading and movie wise?

Ok, I'll give the movie a quick preview then see how she feels as she watches.


Think I'll read the book myself.

I might just run out and buy it tonight! Sidney arleady fell asleep on me though. Not even 6:30 here yet.


I'll let her give it a try and see if it bothers. Good thing about a DVD you can turn them off.


It was kind of funny. She loved the movie Series of Unfortante Events (I loved it too!). She just worried about Sunny so much. However, the more she watched it the more it started to scare her. This was a couple years or so ago. Don't know when it came out on DVD. It was like every time she watched it she understood a little more of the story. Started putting pieces together.


She'd start to get a little scared and I was anxious and would ask her if she wanted me to turn it off. She say NO! everytime.


Now when she hesitates and usually passes it up when picking a movie.

Just watched this and my thoughts are:


The animation is great and the story very good (but I'm a N. Gaiman fan). The look of the film is right out of the book - dark and pretty creepy images and nothing I'd really call cute (well, the jumping mice were kind of cute - at first). The button eyes kind of creeped me out, lol.

I agree, Coraline isn't a typical animated kids' movie.
