1.0 out of 5 starsHorrible quality! Did not receive what I ordered.
Verified purchase
I ordered Coraline to add to my daughter’s collection of her favorite films for her birthday coming up next week. This is not what I ordered. I have not opened it (and won’t until she opens for her birthday) so hopefully the actual DVD doesn’t look as cheap as this fake case and cover. What I received is not what is pictured in the item listing OR in other reviews photos. I dont even want to give this to her, it looks awful. Cheap after market case and the paper insert is blurry and not the original Coraline film art. Very, very disappointed. This looks completely bootlegged!!!!

5.0 out of 5 starsCorrect 3D version - not the 3D anaglyph.
Verified purchase
This is not a review of the film itself. It can be argued that the film is left somewhat incomplete.

However, this film looks great on a good 3D television, and display of this version. Coraline was originally released in 3D anaglyph blu-ray (using red and blue overlapping images) and with accompanying paper glasses. That earlier version is very primative and not worth watching - this 3D version is the one you are seeking.

4.0 out of 5 starsA Movie You Will Not Forget!
Verified purchase
This movie is a favorite of a lot of my favorite people. For some reason, I had never gotten around to it until now.

Coraline is a blend of fairy tale, Twilight Zone weirdness and David Cronenburg style horror. It is a well crafted, psychological tale pieced together from Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and The Naked Lunch. Technically, it is marvelous. The stop motion animation and models are nothing short of astounding.

I'm sure that every reviewer warns that this movie isn't for all kids. There is little violence and no gore, but this is a movie that rather shockingly attacks children's most basic fears. What happens to Coraline's Dad (sort of) is really awful. In fact, it reminds me of Videodrome, for those in the know.

Coraline also deftly uses adult horror tropes like needles, psychosexual imagery and eye horror. Maybe I'm off here, but my guess is that small children will be horrified, but not really know exactly why. This is a movie that is a big step up from Monster House and Nightmare Before Christmas, intensitywise. I personally would show this to some ten year olds, but no one younger. Be aware.

For everyone else, this is a visually arresting, engaging movie. It is big on wows and a little short on plot, but all together a very fun and unique experience. Buy this movie for your niece who is into Chvrches and Creepypasta.

5.0 out of 5 starsIt's nice to watch a 'family' movie with my child and not be bored out of my mind.

My son and I have loved this movie since we first saw it years ago. He was very young, about 6, yet had absolutely zero problems with the "creepiness" of it that other parents had reported of their children. If your child has a skittish disposition then perhaps you should watch it first before watching with your child. This movie has a slight scare level similar to "A Nightmare Before Christmas". It certainly didn't deserve the low star ratings some gave it just because their child wasn't developmentally ready for a haunted house story. He's 10 now, and we just bought a digital copy and watched it again twice as our original DVD has long since been worn out. Some of the animation is truly beautiful.

Coraline is very much done in the tradition of old fairy tales which provided scares and thrills along with lessons and entertainment. Kids sometimes like a little adventure and suspense with their entertainment too! Coraline learns to appreciate her parents despite their human flaws (and they certainly should be more attentive parents than they were in the beginning). Coraline gets into trouble in part because her parents were too distracted to be attentive to her needs; that is a reminder for parents watching the movie too. She learns not all things that look good are good or safe and to use her wits in examining situations and people/creatures. She is brave, strong-willed and clever in overcoming an evil situation not only for herself but for many others caught in the web. Frankly I think this is an excellent movie for explaining to watch out for dangerous people and situations in the world without being too literal when kids are old enough not to have nightmares from a somewhat scary story. A+

3.0 out of 5 starsDVD good, but ultimately didn’t work for me
Verified purchase
So... I bought this movie in blue ray 3D. It came with no 3D glasses.... I order glasses and I’m eager to watch a few days later when my glasses come in. And the thing is saying I can’t play the 3D on my tv!! The dvd it’s self is in good condition no scratches and no skipping so far and the case only had normal wear on it but I’m just so confused about the 3D not playing and being sent a 3D movie with no glasses.

5.0 out of 5 starsI am mindful of what my seven-year-old granddaughter watches when she is in my home. Thank you.

I love every single aspect of Amazon. I love your website. It is very easy to use, sometimes too easy. Even when I go to another website, the site will automatically lead me to Amazon. I have twelve grandchildren, Ages born March 8, 2021, and the eldest is 28. I ask them what they want for their birthday. They usually know and they go onto my phone, go to your website ad put the items they want into the cart. Later I review the cart and make my decision and then buy. So simple. This website is the best I have ever seen. Trust me, it is the best. Terrific line items but most importantly the ease. Thank You.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat movie now on genuine Blu Ray 3D!
Verified purchase
We saw Coraline in the theater, before 3D was common in theaters, so we saw it in regular 2D, and it was still a great movie! Some time later we purchased a 3D version on DVD, which included a few pairs of those old-fashioned colored paper glasses, and that was actually pretty cool! Then came the advent of Blue-Ray 3D technology and not long after, our purchase of a 3D TV and Blue-Ray player. Looking for Christmas gifts last month, I wondered if Coraline had been released on Blue-Ray 3D. As there are currently several versions of this movie available, it took a fair amount of searching before finding this genuine Blue-Ray 3D version, and at a pretty good price! It looks and sounds pretty glorious on a Blue-Ray equipped 3D TV with a Surround Sound system, with such excellent detail that you can almost feel the textures. This one is the real deal!

5.0 out of 5 starsOne of my youngest kid's favorite movies. But inappropriate for the very young.
Verified purchase
One of my youngest kid's favorite movies. Gave it to him for Christmas along with a crocheted Coraline doll. He was very excited and watched the movie 3 times between Christmas and New Years.

That being said this movie is not all that appropriate for younger children. It is creepy and has some very scary stuff. Also, there is a circus act with the two old ladies and they need more clothes on.
