Coraline .... To 3D or Not to 3D, that is the question.

Coraline is an American animated stop-motion 3-D fantasy film based on Neil Gaiman's 2002 novel Coraline.

My husband and I watched Coraline a few nights ago. I realize that this movie would be much better in a theater, but we did not take the opportunity to see it when it was showing here. So, when the rental showed up of the shelf at the video store, we picked it up. It came with 3D glasses, so we watched it in that format even though regular 2D was on the flip side of the disc.

While both of us enjoyed the movie, we felt that the 3D was hard to get used to. Sometimes when scenes changed you had to re-focus and that was distracting. Also, we both felt that the color was somewhat lacking.

When we finished the 3D version, just for curiosity, we started the 2D version. There was the color that we were missing out on! I know that we would have missed the "depth" that 3D provided, but in hindsight, I believe we would have enjoyed the 2D version more.
