Movie of the week: Coraline

There aren't a lot of movies coming out this month.

One of the best looking titles for February, though, just so happens to drop this week. Enter the animated epic Coraline.

About a girl who ventures into a magical alternate reality that appears too good to be true (yeah, it is) and from the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline looks and sounds like a spiritual predecessor to everyone's favorite stop-motion film (and Hot Topic money printer).

I got to see the trailer in 3D while watching My Bloody Valentine, so I'd say that's definately the way to go if you can find a theater showing it and don't mind spending nearly twice as much per ticket. Otherwise, get out there and enjoy it any way possible.

If you happen to see Coraline this weekend, be sure to let me know what you thought in the comments.
