Justin Plus Fun: Crazy 'bout Coraline
Every once in a while I see a movie or a show that totally tears me apart, drives me crazy, and invades my thoughts. The latest example of this is Coraline, a movie which every single one of you must see. Like, now. Right this second. Seriously, don't waste another minute. GO!
So what have I done already? Well, I've been to the Coraline web site where I made my own button-eyed photo:
I've already downloaded the entire spooky album, and fallen head-over-heels for a 30-second song (or as a friend pointed out, a "jingle"). Let me tell you something - it sucks being addicted to something that short. You can't put it on repeat or you'll literally go insane. WHY COULDN'T THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS MAKE AN EXTENDED VERSION?
Either way, here's the spooky YouTube clip of "Other Father" singing his song about Coraline:
Oh, and you KNOW I'm super excited about the upcoming off-bway Coraline musical, with music written by The Magnetic Fields!
In case you're living in a hole and have no idea as to what Coraline is, below are some of the fawning reviews, including a NY Times Critics Pick, bitch! And the HD trailer as well as some of their brilliant web ads.
My next move will be to find Coraline at an IMAX 3D theater... because a standard 3D theater just didn't cut the cake.

And, of course, the fawning reviews of Coraline.
