Coraline

I've seen many animated films in my time, but I doubt that any of them will top Coraline - a dark fairy tale based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Only a few select theaters in Austin are showing Coraline in 3D, but I honestly believe that 3D is the only way to go as it adds to the absolutely stunning visual aspect of this film. And though this is technically a kid's movie, I could see where it would give the youngins nightmares. The Wall Street Journal went even further adding that Coraline "is distinguished by a creepiness so deep that it seems perverse." I also envision this film becoming an acid-dropping cult classic in the future. The theaters charge you an extra $2.50 for the 3D glasses, but I assure you, it's worth every dime.

That movie looks awesome.

But, great. All the whiny bitches will be complaining about how it traumatized their children.

Whatever happened to personal responsibility, and idk, maybe doing some RESEARCH.

Idiots.

Like the people who were mad because the dog died in Marley and Me.

Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Life is not all sunshine and roses, better your kid learns it now, rather than later.

Much as I expected...this movie is rated PG and people are bitching that it is inappropriate for 5 year olds.

HELLLLOOOOOOOOOO.

Duh.

And OMG, THERE'S BEWBS!

Ha ha..people are so fucking dumb.

There are BEWBS in this movie which I thought was a bit odd. Definitely not a G movie and not a PG-13 movie...PG as in "Parental Guidance" is suggested. Are they really bitching about this film? I need to google.

I quickly looked at the reviews and that was one of the first things I saw!! OMG, BEWBS.

You know what, I saw bewbs on tv when I was a kid, and I survived.

Did you hear about the ACM awards?

"Jamey Johnson made a strong showing as a new artist, receiving a nomination for top new male vocalist. His recording of "In Color" resulted in a single of the year nomination. His other two nominations are in the song of the year category as artist and writer of "In Color." Johnson won an ACM song of the year award in 2006 for co-writing Strait's "Give It Away."

Heidi Newfield got 5 nominations, only Brad Paisley got more.....that I don't get, but whatever. That Johnny and June song annoys me....

Jenny said...

To clarify, I get why BP got 6 nominations. I don't understand Heidi getting 5.

I thought Trace Adkins wrote "In Color"? I have no idea in the world who Heidi Newfield is? I think with the whole BEWBS thing is this...are you making a kids film or are you going for a more adult-oriented film? I, myself, think that the film is perfectly fine, but I'm honestly clueless as to how kids will view this film.

I hadn't heard that about Trace Adkins, but didn't Jamey Johnson write Honkytonk Badonkadonk? Didn't you just tell me that?

My brain is fried, forgive me.

As for bewbs in the movie, I will wait till I see it. I was gonna go tonight, but the 11p-7 am person called in.

fuck.

I guess JJ wrote "In Color" with James Otto and Lee Thomas Miller.

And Trace Adkins also has it on one of his albums....

PopCultureJihad said...

I'm so confused. I don't who writes what these days. Well, that sucks that you can't go see the movie because I really want to see what you think of it. And, yes, JJ did write Honkeytonk Badonkadonk. I'm laughing as I write that. That's JJ's Scarlet Letter.

If he wrote that Trace Adkins song "Chrome", I am not sure that I will be able to listen any more.

"her favorite color is chrome...."

What a stupid song......
