I have not read the book but I do think the movie is incredible and my favorite since Triplets of Belleville. One of the few new animated movies I can watch over and over again. I think its a beautiful world thats created and hontestly looking at the McKean illustrations which are cool, they leave me a little cold like much of his work . I only saw a bit of the movie he directed but and it didn't do much for me so I can't imagine a better Coraline..... but of course I haven't read the book soooooo....:-)

When the Oliver Twist accent begins to take over my personality is when I get worried!

Such a great little read indeed, transported me to a place of wonder for a few hours while reading.

I love how you read it with an "Oliver Twist" accent, I do that all the time!

Lily, you and Karswell are probably right about the movie. Perhaps I am just jaded? No kids = no fondness, I guess.

The original is obviously infinitely creepier. But I have a fondness for the film. My son and I watched it together before he left for Quebec. When he comes back I'll have to show him these illustrations.

Just joking, you can bash the US all you want, on any day of the year... we kind of deserve a good bashing now and then actually.

Oh, and sorry about the 9/11 faux pas. I thought that since I prepared the post on 9/10 that it was still OK to horse whip Uncle Sam.

I didn't really bash the USA, though. Teri Hatcher took the full force of my misdirected anger.

Karswell said: "I can't think of anyone working in film today who could ever come close to translating anything by Gaiman properly to the silver screen."

I think you are absolutely right. I remember some years back, there was a lot of buzz about Good Omens possibly being treated for the big screen. It had an IMDB entry and everything -- the operative word being "had," as it no longer exists. It would have been impossible, or rather, possibly awful.

I also agree that this movie could have been worse. I really enjoyed the Dog Ladies' otherworld performance. As a whole, however, the picture just didn't flow for me, I guess.

I actually think the movie is awesome... but yeah, those illustrations are another good example of how much MORE awesome 'n scary it could've been if McKean had art directed. But to be fair (and quit bashing America on 9/11!) I can't think of anyone working in film today who could ever come close to translating anything by Gaiman properly to the silver screen.

The book will always be awesome, the movie could've been alot worse.
