Let's talk about something that's /not/ moving.

I forgot to mention! A couple of weeks ago, we saw Coraline one and a half times. See, the first time we tried, the power went out half-way through, so we had to get readmission tickets and come back the next week. Thus, one-and-half times. It was well worth it: the animation was impressive, especially this scene with two dozen jumping circus mice moving around with hypnotizing coordination. It's stop motion showboating, and absolutely unforgettable. I'd read the graphic novel adaptation during the summer, so the plot wasn't much of a surprise, but it's amazing how that doesn't matter with this one. If you haven't seen it yet, you should do it while you have the chance.

Sounds fun...once I get things settled financially, I'll go see it.

Yes, do! ^-^ It's from Neil Gaiman, the guy who wrote all kinds of stuff, including The Sandman graphic novel series, the Stardust flick from the other year, and lots of other stuff.

I have been waiting for the movie ever since I heard about it. I've read the book - for some reason button-eyes are inherently creepy.
