They Made a Coraline Meme by lord-phillock They Made a Coraline Meme by lord-phillock
And I couldn't resist...

Let me elaborate more about what I meant when I said "More time":
My life is filmmaking. I can't watch a movie and look at it without examining the intentions and inside-layers of a film, and how its made.

That being said, I only saw "Coraline" once; and during the end of the second act (and the whole third act) I felt there needed to be more emotion, and more sense of risk. Don't get me wrong, the movie "works"! But If there was more time spent on Coraline's loneliness after her parents vanished, and what it really meant to her that they're now gone. Also, a stronger build-up and confrontation with the Other Mother (i.e. the third act), the movie would have been even better. Let's sound un-professional here, but "some additional conflict and action" in the third act would have been great! I know I may not be very clear explaining this, but I firmly believe there's something that could have been strengthened at those points.

(edit: March 3 - I colored it because it is now much easier for me thanks to a new pen tablet!)

Hey cool! A comment! Well, I drew and painted this on Adobe Photoshop using a pen tablet called "Wacom Intuous3"... both on the computer! Oh, and I added a texture overlay to make it look like it was done on some sort of paper. :)

Wybie wasn't really my favourite (not in the book) but I don't hate him. I just found him boring in the movie. Plus it made it look like Coraline would not have done it without him XD

I don't like Wybie much. but he's my 3rd fave character, next to the cat and Coraline. I was reading the artist comments. And the thing i don't get is that, you seem to want more action. Like, i just don't get that. I need more explanation. cause i just don't understand it. How would a 11 or 12 year old girl supposed to do it. There was a good amount of action for me. like... ug... can you explain it?

what I meant was: when it gets to the beginning of the third act (a movie has three acts. The beginning of the third act is usually when the protagonist confronts the problem once and for all) you get a feeling that you know how the story will conclude itself. And, if not changing a few things around, the other option at hand is if there were some more conflict particularly during the part where she's looking for the marbles (was it marbles? I totally forgot. I only saw this movie once, and on the day it came out :( ).

What I meant by "action" was not like "cars exploding" it was basically more of a conflict, more of a challenge (physical and mental) for Coraline during the last parts of the film. I think it would have helped a lot.

Let's say, she might accidentally have dropped one of the marbles during her escape from the Other Mother's world, boosting the tension of the scene. (She's gotta go back for it!) Or maybe... What if it was on the verge of falling into a crack in the floor? More risks and more moments like those could have given the third act a lot more 'sharpness'.

Am I making sense? ;)

Yes. And srry for asking... And she was looking for the ghost kids eyes. But i think they used marbles as the eyes when they made the movie. i dont remember. I should know tho. Cause i did loots of research about Coraline

okay, even though Wybie was annoying, I DO think he's a necessary addition for the movie.

The book itself is pretty short, and I think the movie improved on it by expanding the story a little, and with that, it made the movie a lot better with Wybie in it. Imagine if he wasn't in the movie... it would be kind of lonely, wouldn't it?

True true I also asked my friends and I realized the people the read the book before the movie didn't like Wybie because he's and add on character. But MOST people who didn't read the book and watched the movie like Wybie. Interesting yes?

Haha but thats why I'm not to thrilled to read the book. Even though I heard it was good Wybie's not in it!
