CORALINE (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Coraline—uniquely refreshing creativityenables Director Henry Selick to pull off an attention-grabbing storyline that keeps viewer attention from beginning to end. Coraline does not present itself as a message movie, but the viewer is left with a clear understanding of the importance of real family, neighbors, and friends. Henry Selick comfortably moves through emotions of loneliness, despair, and losing all hope in the face of extreme evilness. This is a great movie for action-drama fans of all ages.
