Okay, as some may recall, Matt and I are hooked on 3D movies. Not long ago we saw “Bolt” in 3D and I asked Matt how I could ever watch a ‘flat’ movie again. On his birthday (after the delicious breakfast at Al’s) we went to “Coraline” in 3D. Though I liked it over all, I was certain I would have walked my kids out of the theater -or at least covered their eyes- a few times.
All I can say is, there is a scene where two old women are reliving their glory days as stage performers. One well-endowed woman is wearing very little up top (precious little in fact). In this instance 3D is completely unnecessary and even perverse, we get the point (or points rather). I could only lean over to Matt and whisper “If I’d seen this with my mom when I was little we all would have marched right out of the theater!” I mean, good grief, we walked out on “Fern Gully!”
It was a very artistic and, in some ways, very well done movie. But I would not recommend it for children, which is odd since I’m fairly sure that’s part of their target audience. Either way, my imaginary ones will not be going to it, and I’m sure if they did we would walk out.
