moscot, : eye glasses, zeiss


I went to see "Coraline" yesterday in Manhattan with some friends. We were surprised by the hoards of small children at the show with their parents--this movie, while dazzling in 3-D--is much too dark for kids under 8. I had to wear the 3-D glasses over my regular glasses, which kind of sucked, by the movies was well worth the effort!

he first contemporary film in which the 3-D experience feels intrinsic to the story instead of a Godforsaken gimmick, "Coraline" is a fantastic feat of imagination, a magical tale with a genuinely sinister edge. The story of an 11-year-old girl's adventures in an alternate universe, "Coraline" comes by its disturbing qualities honestly, through the efforts of writer-director Henry Selick and novelist Neil Gaiman.
