Better than a talking chiuaua 

I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie.

'Coraline' movie trailer


... not just because it looks like a lot of fun, and it's directed by Henry Selick (who also directed The Nightmare Before Christmas -- one of my favorite movies ever), but also because ever since Emily saw the preview and found out that I've read the book, she's been bugging the heck out of me about it. She repeatedly asks when it's coming out, and wants to know every detail about the story and the characters.

The trouble is, it's been about five years since I read Coraline, so I can't answer her questions too well. I do remember thinking that the "other mother" and "other father" who have buttons for eyes seemed really creepy. The movie doesn't look like it will be too scary, though.

Another reason to be excited -- Daily Show Resident Expert John Hodgman is the voice of Coraline's father (and other father)!
