You're alright in my books, Capone. :0)

Pretty much every movie that I wanted to see in theatres this year, was in 3D only, which means I had or still have to wait for the DVD. But I really, really want to see this as soon as possible!

I've got a real feel for this now. Sounds good.

I will pay for the 3d too. It really seems to work well in this style of animation.

I don't think I'd take a kid under 5 though. Humor and themes are (awesomely) from another era. I was struck by how sanitized kid fare has become relative to this. Almost worth seeing for that reason alone. And the 3D is very well done and fun (and adds to the quality of this type of animation imo) if you can find a theatre that reliably does a good job with presentation.

But ran away screaming when Monster House was on TV the other day. Think this one will have to wait a year or two.

Seems like all we get is gold from this genre: - The Nightmare Before Christmas - James and the Giant Peach - The Pirates - Corpse Bride - Fantastic Mr. Fox - Coraline

But they all want to see it and I'm going to take them. We pretty much have to go see every stop motion feature that comes out, and I've been looking forward to this one.

Will Vinton invented Claymation. This is Phillip Knight's son- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yO1cjNLhOqo I hear he's a pretty good stop-motion animator, though. That's what they say. This is one of the more sickening tales of corporate interference in what should be protected, sanctioned and cherished handmade art. http://www.postmagazine.com/Publications/Newsletters/2003/Week-of-April-25-2003/WILL-VINTON-FIRED-FROM-WILL-VINTON-STUDIOS.aspx Vinton was a true artist, as anyone who has seen "The Adventures of Mark Twain" or his award winning short film can attest to, and firing him from his own company is tantamount to putting Van Gogh out on the street. I will NOT give this movie my money. And although Coraline was a good movie, I found it a bit cutesy and commercial-leaning compared to the Gaiman story. Dakota Fanning? Oh fucking please.

that's because it takes so fucking long to make one of these movies they make sure the movie works by the time they even shoot a frame of it.

Why that it hasn't got more widespread attention and acclaim is beyond me. Just a fun and inventive movie, and funny as hell from beginning to end.

If I'm not mistaken, this is from the same folks that made "Coraline", which is, hands down, the best 3D movie ever made. So even if you are a 3D hater, and you have every right to be, you might want to consider donning the glasses for this one...

Probably why the Wallace and Gromit films have to be freakin' oscar worthy everytime they come out. Clay animation is a nightmare.
