Coraline

Basically "Hansel and Gretel" with just one kid. Not groundbreaking in terms of storyline, but very entertaining. Dakota Fanning does an excellent job as Coraline.

The stop-motion animation is beautiful, and the 3-D effects are effective rather than kitschy. At one point a character sews a button eye onto a doll's face, and the people in front of me flinched as the needle came out.

Capone did a screening a couple of weeks ago . . . I thought it was playing everywhere in 3D.
