Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

Coraline (2009)

Coraline: He's not drunk, Mom. He's just eccentric.

Happy 15 to Coraline today! When the movie came out I liked it very much but didn't love love it -- I think I was extra attached to Neil Gaiman's book and didn't want to. But in the decade and a half since Laika has become, you know, LAIKA, aka my favorite animation studio, and I feel less hesitant about fully embracing the movie now -- I just re-watched it about a month ago and it's even better than I remembered. It probably isn't my favorite Laika movie -- my love for ParaNorman and Kubo are both pretty up there -- but it's top three for sure. What are your thoughts on Coraline? Also the movie is getting a re-release in August for its anniversary and they just dropped this cool ass poster for that:
