Coraline was one of those movies I wanted to see in the theaters, but missed. It looks like a terrific picture, and anything that's crafted by hand is something I want to see. The DVD and Blu-Ray are out now, so now I'll have the chance to catch up.
Hand-crafted animation, in all its forms, is in danger of becoming a lost art. I sincerely hope movies like this can inspire a new generation to continue the tradition.
