I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

I highly enjoyed the movie. Hell, I even saw it twice, both times in 3D. And after the first time I saw it, I bought the soundtrack on iTunes right when I got home. And when I looked up Bruno Coulais, I saw that he did the score for Les Choristes, and that is a wonderful movie.

I am definitely buying this on DVD when it comes out.

Gotta say, the film was stunning in 3-d. And for Henry Selick, it was a vast improvement over his previous feature (Monkeybone, tsk tsk).

Saw the movie three times so far. I bring a new person to see it each time I go.

Have to agree with some others, Coraline in the book was more resourceful, her solution to the hand and the snow-globe were brilliant.

The cat was perfect in both book and movie. Anybody who has cats knows this is about as perfect as it gets.

Wybee I really liked, but he did take away from some of Coraline's sense of her self reliance. The grandmother yelling his name in the movie just added to the creepiness to me.

Everyone at the garden at the end was really nice. Showed the change in Coraline to others. The book where she eats her dad's pizza worked for me too, well except the pineapple.

The cat looking at you(camera) at the end and then walking off and really off was perfect.

Music please let this come out on vinyl.

I love all the previews I've seen for this! I entered a contest to win an advance screening but didn't get it so I'm sad and will probably wait for it to come out on video. I'd be nervous going to see it in theatres alone, don't want to creep anyone out.

I hope this wins a lot of new fans to Gaiman so they can experience his other works (watching Stardust would be a good beginning for those not up to comics or novels yet).

If people are creeped out, it's likely because of what's happening in the movie. XD

Seen it!! Very, very good - even though we were at the back of the cinema and the 3D gave me a headache! The chat and Q&A after was fun too. Anyone else want to do a write up? If not, I'll do one on Friday or over the weekend. Bed now. Work tomorrow.

Gosh Moni - that's terrible! It was bad enough hearing all the hype from the US and waiting for May but another two months? Not fair! I wonder why they are doing that?

It was a wonderful evening and a brilliant film. I will definitely go and see it again. My 11 year old was hanging on to my arm in terror at one point but enjoying every minute of it! But I won’t talk too much about it for fear of spoilers for UK cinema goers! There are a few below – but not many, if anyone is interested.

The talk afterwards was great – Mr Henry, Mr Neil and a fat man from the NFT (I’m sorry, I didn’t catch his name) took to the stage. Lots of chat regarding book to film questions, making the models, how long they took to get around to making the film - about 9 years I think they said, from Mr Neil sending the book to Mr Henry to Mr Neil saying the film script was too like the book and would Mr Henry please make the film his own, rather than a direct copy. They talked a little about 3D and using it for the depth of the film, rather than for the gimmick of things that pop out at you, and how everyone at the IMAX was waiting for 3D porn. Well. Not everyone, obviously!

Coraline's Father/Other Father, John Hodgson, who was in the audience (and has apparently spent a lifetime squeezing himself into Mr Neil’s life) was invited onto the stage, and Ian McShane, who spoke for Mr Bobinsky, would have been invited had he not left with his small kiddlet when the film ended. Probably way past bedtime! There was much politeness over who should sit where. And Mr Neil was his amusing self - he never fails to raise a smile and a giggle, with warmth and good humour.

They discussed why the story of the bees was left out of the film. A big fan of Mr Henry (who was very sweet and extremely nervous) gave him something he had made. I’m not sure quite what it was, a wire/cane cage containing something? I do not know. We were right at the back and could not see! My kids wanted to ask why the cellar scene from the book, which was their scariest memory of it, was omitted from the film but were too shy to ask (so I found out later for them!)

And the code for the Nike Dunk competition was still at the end of the film. Which is really disappointing, knowing you cannot enter, because the promotions were left in the US.

Think I may email Universal (if that's who it is) and hassle them about it!

Mr Neil was waiting for us when we came out of the toilet after the show (I wish!) So I asked him about the Coraline Keys – and again, the publicity was just for the US – “ask Universal” he said. So I will. (He is shorter than I thought he was – he’s always been sitting down/signing when I met him before!) But so lovely, and polite, and kind.

There. Sorry if I’ve bored anyone. I tend to get carried away (and forget what I want to say) but thank you for listening.

(I put this in the tour thread but then thought it should go here, maybe I'll pop back there and take it out? Or maybe I'll just leave it - as I now have three kitties all vying for pole position, um, no, I mean the best spot, on my lap for a nap. Somewhat distracting they are)

i just saw it this morning, and i'm enormously impressed wtih the 3-D thing. it looked amazing, and although yes, there are bits where something seems to pop out at you, the whole thing just looks... REAL.

i have to admit that the character of Wybie was definitely not a welcome addition to the story, for me. as far as the story itself goes, i prefer the book. but as an experience? win.

i was just blown away by how good 3D is. i was totally expecting red and green glasses, and weird colours, and so on, but i couldn't tell what the difference was between the two lenses, and yet... how clever it all is!

i want to see it again just to marvel at the effect, rather than to see the movie. and i want to see monsters vs. aliens 3D, even though i have very little interest in the story. is that sadly geeky?

i loved the Movie so much!
I went to see it on Saturday and loved the use of 3d to make you feel as though you yourself were playing witht the models and seeing the actual set rather than 'in-your-face' type things Smile

Motley - i'd love to see that interview in archive? where can i find it? Smile

I'm sure what needs to be said about the movie has already been said: it was adorable, brilliant, enchanting, creepy, and so on and so forth. I just thought I'd pop into this thread and briefly give my personal thoughts on it.

I saw it in 3-D. It was a great experience. The 3-D effects weren't gimmicky at all. I loved it. It was just a really good film over all. Can't wait to own the DVD. My little sister liked it, too.

After the credits I went straight home and registered to win some of those Nike Dunks. I won them and I wear them all the time. They're so comfortable and everyone I know - a few of them shoe enthusiasts - is jealous. Of course, I sort of feel guilty for wearing them out, little by little, but hey, what can you do?

You lucky b**d alt text! They left the code after the credits in the UK and Mr Neil said it was a shame they couldn't have taken it off because it was irrelevant in the UK.

saharial - I've emailed the BFI and asked them about their archive material and will get back to you when they let me know. Smile

Got an email from the BFI today - as follows:

"Thanks for your email, and for coming along to the Coraline 3D preview screening here at the BFI Southbank.

The event was filmed by our BFI Live team, who will make the film available online at some point soon. I will forward your email on to them as they may be able to give you more details about when this will happen."

Very best
Laura Adams
Events Programmer
BFI Southbank

So - I'll still let you know as and when!
