I first saw Coraline on blu ray in a 3D anaglypth version, brightness and contrast were a little dim but watchable, crosstalk was bad, that is a form of ghosting of the image, colours were all over the place and image detail suffered as a result of all this, i must add though that the 3D effect was fun, i also liked the film so when we got a new Samsung PS60E6500 3D TV i decided to re-buy Coraline, it's selling for a ridiculously low price on Amazon, this is a proper 3D version and is intended for use with active shutter 3D glasses, the disc also comes with a 2D version, that's on the same disc and it uses the right eye portion of the 3D disc to present it in 2D, my interest though is strictly in the 3D edition.

The differences between this proper 3D version and the anaglypth edition are astounding, no more ghosting, colours are all solid and look fab, brightness and contrast are good despite the dimming effect of the glasses, everything now looks really detailed, in an early scene you could see fine intricate detail within the fabric that one of the puppet characters was wearing, there was very good 3D depth and the occasional use of 3D popout, all in all this is a really enjoyable film, nicely voiced by the cast that includes Dakota Fanning and Teri Hatcher and its directed by the guy who made The Nightmare Before Christmas, good atmospheric music score too, maybe a little too scary for very young children, depends really, i'd recommend parents watch it first and decide for themselves or watch it with the children, i'm a grown up forty something child and really enjoyed the movie, this is a huge upgrade over the old paper glasses version of the film and at this low price ( currently just over £4 ) i recommend it.

I know Amazon sometimes lumps these reviews in with the wrong version of the film so let me just add that this review is for the blu ray 3D version that can be viewed using active shutter glasses only.

Coraline was brought as a present for a family member so it was a delight to be able to watch it yesterday, both in 3D and in conventional 2D. The storyline is a great modern fairytale with good characterisation both of Coraline as a teenager with all her foibles, who does good in the end, and her parents. I can fully recommend the DVD for anyone who likes excellent animation with a dark twist but a happy ending. Caution, the 12a certificate is well deserved as younger children could find parts very upsetting.

Showing my age, I remember the first 3D films shown at for example the Science Museum and also the 3D picture books that used red and green lenses. The effect worked equally well and impressively with the DVD set up (we used a large screen). The downside to watching in 3D is that the colour range is not as good when viewed through the glasses than the 2D version and there is a bit of eye-strain over time. We watched about a third of the film oo-ing and gasping at some of the 3D effects but then reverted back to the 2D show for the better viewing comfort. The storyline was more important than the effects.

Do buy this DVD in the 3D version as it is worth seeing the impact on the film and be ready to enjoy a good modern tale with a strong and satisfying story, whether in 3D or 2D.

Bought this to watch with the family, as we missed it at the cinema. For ages my then 6 year old would not watch it, as she was too scared of the 'other mother'! I had to switch it off pronto! She's now 7 and is still apprehensive about watching this.
I have watched this on my own, and did enjoy it, yet it is a little 'dark' in places for youngsters....
