Coraline 
Coraline
3/4 stars

I liked this SO much more than I thought I was going to. Granted, I'm in the best mood of my life. Dakota Fanning's voice was killing me for the first 20 minutes or so, but either she got better or I got used to it. It was very imaginative in a Tim Burton-y way, but lacked the snarky self-reflexivity and contrived quirk that I hate about Tim Burton movies. It was "earnest," as my awesome new roommate called it.

I think I felt everything I was supposed to feel. A child's wonder, loneliness, fear, etc. Good job, Coraline. Favorite part: When Teri Hatcher turned into the REAL Teri Hatcher. Incredible. I wonder if that offended her.

The music was cute, too, but very Burton. However, I liked this movie more than any Tim Burton movie I've seen, with the possible exception of Edward Scissorhands.
