Once again, 3-D comes home with red and green glasses, so you can watch a beautifully crafted movie in purple. Coraline’s hair doesn’t even look blue and the garden of the other world is just a hodgepodge of colors fighting for some authenticity, none of them achieving a real look. You do still see all the detail in the stitching and the depth separating objects, but come on. They also give you a warning that it takes five minutes to adjust, but it never looks right.

On Blu-Ray: Coraline

So, you’ll lose 3-D to watch the 2-D version but at least you get to see what the film looks like. There’s so much beautiful detail to see. A chair is rumpled with the creator’s touch. A window streak separates the picture of Coraline. The character dolls shine under the light showing every carved line of hair.

Showing the stop motion aesthetic in HD makes it look like you can reach in and touch it. You get that effect better in the 2-D version with its vibrant colors than the actual 3-D image skewed with the home viewing glasses.
