It's a pretty messed up movie though. Like, it's not messed up like Sweeny Todd (also amazing!) but it's not a kids movie, at all. I was freaked out at some parts. I wasn't scared, like I've got to sleep with the lights on, no. I was just freaked out, because the movie is really freaky! Just watch to find out how.
The basic plot line, if you don't know so far, is that this 11-year-old girl named Coraline moves into this new apartment (the apartment is amazing because it's basically just a really big pink mansion that got divided into (four I think) different apartments). Her parents write about gardens and they're really boring. So is her life, basically. I would hate to live there. Then she finds this locked door and goes through it (still not ruining anything) where she meets her "Other Parents" who aren't boring and actually pretty cool. But creepy. And I'll stop here...
Actually, this girl is pretty freaking brave. She just wanders into this "Other World" like la-de-dah. I would have been crapping my pants (I'm trying not to say cuss words worse than crap because I don't want to get kicked out).
Tim Burton. Amazing!!! I would just like to say that he is making a new movie that is coming out in 2010 called... wait for it... ALICE IN WONDERLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!
I discovered this in journalism when I should have been writing journalist stuff but instead looked up movies. And then I discovered Alice in Wonderland!!!!! And guess who is playing the Mad Hatter! Give up? JOHNNY DEPP!!!!! AHHH!!!!! And Helena Carter (I think she has another last name, like has two last names or something, but I'm too lazy to look it up. It's just that chick married to Tim Burton and who is Mrs. Lovett in Sweeny Todd and... OH! I just realized a lowercase 'd' is like a 'p' up-side down! And that Helena chick is Belatrix in Harry Potter) is playing the Red Queen. I think that's the evil queen... I haven't read the book in a while. And Anne Hathaway is the White Queen. I really don't remember that character at all. BUT I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (as I've said repeatedly).
You know what? I think Tim Burton is THE best director every! Well, him and Christaphor (that's spelled wrong) Nolan (Batman! In case ya didn't know). Of corse, those are the only two directors I know. But I love the claymation style he does. Is he the only person who still does those? I think so. But I love the Corpse Bride (I really wanna learn the main piano song for that) and Nightmare Before Christmas. NBC (ha ha ha I didn't realize those were the initals) is my favorite though. I have the soundtrack and I love Jack Skeleington (ok ok I can't spell) and Sally. But her voice is too high-pitched so I can't sing along in the shower or whatever.
I'm going to go now. I have to practice piano and then babysit, then come home and either watch Chicago or Batman. I've been craving me some Batman.
