Saw this with Joe, Elissa, and Keith in 3D. The 3D effects were kind of a waste and detracted from the color of the movie. Also, the new 3D uses polarization, so any head tilting and it goes away. Posture people! Neil Gaiman's graphic novel comes to life with Tim Burton's creepy puppets. I thought it was great. It was one of the unsettling movies where the parents and adults fade into the background and the twisted dream world of adolescent becomes exciting and terrible...and real. Totally worth the watch. It was darker than Nightmare Before Christmas, but also more provocative.
