Throughout the years, we have all been blessed with some truly quality animated films. In the past 3 oscars we saw “Inside Out,” “Big Hero 6,” and “Zootopia” take the crown. These three alone are fantastic movies, but none of them are my personal favorite.

“Coraline,” directed by Henry Selick, is a stop-motion animation film about a neglected girl named Coraline (Voiced by Dakota Fanning). Being forced to move to a apartment complex called “The Pink Palace” with her parents (Voiced by Teri Hatcher and John Hodgman) who just don’t seem to understand her seemed like the worst thing possible. She’s taking the move really hard and all she wants it to be happy, and just on que some thing comes a long. She crawls through this little door that leads to a world where everything is incredible, or so it seems. She meets her “other mother” (also voiced by Teri Hatcher) who on the surface seems sweet, but may have more malicious intents than originally anticipated.

This movie is brilliant. It’s absolutely gorgeous to look at. The animation and colors were top class. And the character designs were perfect, toward the end of the film there’s a scene that takes place on a spider web that blew my mind. The music is truly haunting and sets the perfect tone for the darkness of the story. Which leads me to my favorite part, the maturity of the story. This is a very creepy and dark film. It takes on very scary ideas and displays them beautifully, by scaring kids just enough.
