LONG SHOOT

The Coraline shoot lasted over 18 months, following 2 years of pre-production.

Coraline is an interesting movie.  Promoted as, pretty much, an attachment to Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (directed by Coraline's Henry Selick), Coraline tells a story similar to Alice in Wonderland.  A girl, unhappy with her life, goes through a "rabbit hole", of sorts, and winds up in a world that, at first glance, seems like a much happier place.

QUALITY:
Fantastic.  The stop motion animation really shines in high definition.

BONUS FEATURES:
Digital Copy, 4 Pairs of 3-D Glasses, Featurettes, Deleted Scenes, Commentary.

The bonus features aren't really much but including both 2-D and 3-D versions of the movies, with glasses, is a huge plus.  The quality of the movie is mesmerizing as Selick's penchant for claymation has grown leaps and pounds since The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach.  The movie itself is a little odd and creepy at times but still holds on to a lot of charm and is worth the watch, but you may want to wait until Halloween.
