Leading article: The vision thing

Does the future lie in another dimension? Hollywood certainly seems to think so. In recent months we've been fed a steady diet of 3D releases: Up, Coraline, A Christmas Carol. And last night saw the world premiere of James "Titanic" Cameron's epic fantasy adventure, Avatar.

DVD review: Coraline, Henry Selick, 101 mins (PG)

Eleven-year-old Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning) is dismayed and lonely after being forced to move to Oregon, and wishes her parents had more time to spend with her.

DVD: Coraline, For retail and rental (Universal)

Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s novel, and directed by Henry Selick, the maker of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline is a stop-motion animation about a bluehaired 11-year-old who finds a doorway to another world.

Observations: Give the Coraline puppet masters a hand

More often than not, when we watch a film, we don't give too much thought to the amount of work involved in putting it together. Which, refreshingly, is something that director Henry Selick decided to fix during trailers for his latest stop-frame animation film, Coraline, which hit our cinema screens earlier this year. To highlight just how meticulous the process can be, he flashed a few facts fleetingly across the screen: thousands of hands for puppets were each made by hand, a forest of cherry blossoms made of popcorn, five miles of gold thread for a five-inch wig and 3,500 flowers that all light up.
