I'm in full geek mode here -- reading the graphic novel again before Watchmen comes out on Thursday. Look at that! I even know what day it comes out -- that's rare for me. I'm glad I'm reading it again because there are several things I've forgotten. I heard the movie is getting mixed reviews but I don't care. I'm off on Friday because I'm working today so I may even go to the midnight showing. Probably not though because I expect it will be too crowded, but I'll go on Friday.
Coraline: I saw this movie in 3D. I'd read the novel and the graphic novel before seeing it, and although a couple of things are different, such as Coraline's friend WhyB who is not in the book, that didn't detract from the enjoyment I got from this movie. When I first heard it was going to be an animated instead of a live action film, I was disappointed, but the stop-motion animation allows the movie to bring the characters to life in a way that a live action film could not have done. I loved it.
