Coraline


Release Date: February 6th 2009

Plot Outline: A little girl finds a doorway that leads her to another dimension, a more exciting life than her own. But it isn’t as wonderful as it appears to be.

I was very excited to see Coraline. It looked like a fantastical kids movie. One I have been longing to see since The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I’ll just get right into it and say, I was very disappointed. First off, is this even supposed to be viewed by children? I can see how it would be creepy for a child to watch and besides that, Coraline isn’t a very good role model. She is a very unpleasant child, not nice at all. She is always nasty to friends and her parents, and she always has some sort of attitude. It is obvious that she gets her bad behavior from her parents. They don’t seem to be the most adoring of parents. They never have any time for her and they sadly have no shame in letting her know that.
Along with all of her other negative behavior, Coraline has bad manners. She merely throws things on the floor when she is through with them and is quite demanding with her parents.

I wasn’t a fan of Coraline, the character or the movie. Aside from all of the negative character flaws, the film was slow moving and dull. Children would be attracted by all of the colors and graphics but there isn’t much excitement. Though the plot is original and interesting, it wasn’t successfully carried out or developed.

This is a kids movie you should skip, for the adults and for the children.

  1. Hey,
    I saw your site through Lorwynne and Blue’s App Reviews, I think these are great! I personally liked the creepyness of Coraline, but I agree it was relatively slow-moving.

  2. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it 🙂

    Coraline was creepy. I liked the feel a lot. It had a ton of potential but just didn’t get to the greatness it could have been.
