Thanks to MIL and FIL, last night Beth and I finally got out together, sans Sam, to see Coraline, in 3D no less.
It was fantastic. I can't recommend it highly enough, and if you're reading this on Sunday, this is your last day, as far as I know, to see this in 3D before the Jonas Brothers take over the 3D screens. Maybe you have until the weekend. Not sure. But don't pass up the opportunity to see it in 3D.
My review? Well, it gets an A-, since getting an A is nigh impossible. There were several changes from the novella, including minor ones (like no ghost picnic dream) and major ones (Wybie), but they worked, for the most part, to translate this into a feature-length movie targeted strongly to kids. And Wybie, though at times sort of irritating, was, when silenced by the Belledame or whatever, one of the creepier aspects of the Other world.
All in all, I will very likely want this on DVD, if DVDs exist by the time Sam is old enough to see this.
Oh, also we went to Maverick's for supper before the movie. Delicious as always, though some more time to sit and order from a server and such would have been nice, rather than the fast-food style of Maverick's. But still, no complaints. So good.
In other news . . . well, no other news, I don't guess. Snow emergency in effect in MSP. Move your car if you haven't already.
