so i watched Coraline, finally, this weekend. that movie is seriously equivalent to stop motion porn. it's just a really weak plot so they have an excuse to show gratuitous stop motion.
anyway, i also saw Up, which was phenomenal. great plot, excellent character animation, a bit of a sexist design on some in part, and a blatant continuity issue, but nobody's perfect.
i think i'm gonna go see it again...
