Coraline

The parents are in town, and they suggested a movie..."How about Coraline?"

Ummm...I was sort of scared by the previews, maybe I should look it up....



IMDB Parental Guide for Coraline.

Huh....

yeah, don't think so.

Um, dead dogs stuffed with saw dust. . I think not.

But, I never knew that imdb had those parent guide pages. . .fantastic!

ha ha ha. I knew that movie looked freaky just from the preview but that link certainly confirmed it.

I didn't know IMDB had those pages either! My 6 year old wanted to see this and I'm glad I read that. There is no way we will be seeing this right now.

So, we read the Hotel for Dogs page like this one, and my parents took the girls to see it this morning, and my mom was like: oh...there's the butt crack, oh, there's the dog poo, oh, yes, there's the dog kisses...etc. My point being, it's pretty accurate. So glad I found it too....like the specifics.

I think I was more scared of the Coraline previews than my kids were!! Soooo freaky.
But thanks for the link, definitely won't be seeing this anytime soon.

Oh, also meant to mention that www.moviemom.com is also a good resource when checking out movies for the kiddos.

I think the IMDB Parent's Guide is taking a lot of these scenes completely out of context.

It's no worse than watching Snow White (which also features "A parental figure transforms into a grotesque and frightening figure who threatens a child"
or Sleeping Beauty. I agree that the movie might not be for very young children, but my own girls who are ages 8 and 10 loved it.

The animation (and I highly recommend you see it in 3-D if you can) is amazing, and the storyline is actually quite touching.
