Coraline

This past weekend I saw Coraline. It's based on the book by Neil Gaiman, who among other things wrote "Stardust." Coraline is beautifully done, and the 3-D technology used, in making the film, really drew me into the story. I loved this movie!

It is a story for children, but there are some rather dark parts. The premise is kind of freaky. I wouldn't recommend the movie to children under 8 or 9. But that's just my opinion.

Tell me, what movies have you seen recently?

Don't get to the movies in the theater much(3 year old twins), but we did go to see "The Wrestler"-Excellent, if depressing movie. Mickey Rourke is fantastic.
Saw "Mirrors' on Netflix this weekend- i was pretty disappointed. it was a so-so horror movie until the ending, which just didn't make any sense at all.
Coraline looks excellent.

Here, There, Elsewhere... and more said...

I've seen a couple of excellent French independant films that were a real pleasure but the last International film I saw was "Mama Mia" (I only saw it as I LOVE Meryl Streep)...
Have a great week..:)
