‘Coraline’

Tripping into a magic wonderland

by Giovanni Fazio

One of the things everyone seems to enjoy about “Avatar” — both the people who love the film, and those who are lukewarm about it — is that sense of really being able to sink into that glistening, glowing world of Pandora. James Cameron’s film is perhaps the first to so exploit 3-D’s potential for immersion, but it surely won’t be the last.
