I saw the movie (3D version, which is definitely the way to see it) of Neil Gaimans Coraline the other night; it was beautifully done (and all physically real stop-motion no CGI) and I highly recommend it.
Admittedly, I have some gripes about the story changes (this review by Gary Westfahl captures many of my grumbles read it!), and I also prefer the visual look of P. Craig Russells wonderful adaptation. But if you let ill-advised infidelity to source material ruin movies for you, youre going to be unhappy way too often.
In related news, check out this hilarious/creepy clip of Gaiman himself advertising some movie Benjamin Button, Im guessing?
In slightly less related news (and justifying the IP and LL tags), Gaiman takes a less annoying position than his agent on IP issues.
