Coraline Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 07, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Coraline is magical, colorful and downright creepy! It will definitely be remembered as one of the best animated films of all time. Check out Kidzworld’s review of Coraline.

Based on a book by: Neil Gaimon

Coraline Jones (voice of Dakota Fanning) isn’t happy at her new home. Her parents are too busy working on a gardening catalog to give her any attention. Her dad only makes slimy-looking food for dinner. And it’s raining too hard to explore outside. Instead, she explores their new apartment, which is filled with boring colors, boring pictures and boring furniture. Then Coraline discovers a strange little door in her parlor, which leads to nothing but a brick wall.

Her Other Home

That night Coraline hears a mouse scurrying in her bedroom. She follows it into the parlor where the little door is sitting slightly ajar. Curious, Coraline peers inside. Instead of a brick wall, Coraline finds a long tunnel leading to another door. She crawls through and finds herself in a house identical to her own, but with one major difference—everything is fun. Fun pictures, fun furniture and a magical garden filled with lively, colorful plants.

Her Other Parents

Inside the house, Coraline finds two people who look identical to her parents, except for their black button eyes. They call themselves her “other mother and father,” and they promise to give Coraline anything she wants—delicious dinners, fun toys and lots of attention. Her other parents would never neglect her like her real parents do. But when Coraline wakes up the next morning in her real bedroom, she fears it was all a dream.

It’s a Trap!

When Coraline’s real parents go missing, she realizes that the wonderful other world is nothing but a trap! Her evil other mother has stolen her parents! She plans to sew buttons onto Coraline’s eyes and keep her there forever! Coraline must find her missing parents and escape the twisted world before it’s too late.

The Bottom Line

Just like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline was created using stop-motion animation, a technique that first began in 1898! This technique made the film come alive! It was colorful, super detailed and extremely eerie. Coraline will definitely frighten the young and fainthearted! But don’t let that stop you for seeing it. It’s a terrific movie!

Coraline Movie Rating: 5
