* Many people compared the film to "Alice In Wonderland", but the more I think about it, the film is similar to the legend of {{Theatre/Faust}}. Both main characters are dissatisfied with what they have. The Other Mother is alot like the devil in the legend in that she gives Coroline her desires. It's only when she offers buttons for her eyes is when Coraline realises that she made a DealWithTheDevil.

** Incidentally, the Other Father plumps up with each visit as he's stuffed with her magical food. [[spoilers: And because he's turning back into a pumpkin.]]

* Just a minor observation: [[spoiler:In the opening cutscene, where the Sweet Ghost Girl's doll gets remade into the Coraline doll,]] the stuffing gets pulled out of the doll, it gets turned inside out, and filled with sand. [[spoiler:When Coraline's other world begins to deteriorate later on, we see that everything appears to actually be made of sand.]] So perhaps, [[spoiler: whatever a person's doll was filled with is the substance their other world ends up being made of.]]

* Even with all the perks and promises given by the Other Mother, the movie still presents the {{Squick}} of sewing buttons in your eyes as an obvious dealbreaker. Coraline is automatically aghast at the suggestion, raising the question of why 3 other children wouldn't have had the same reaction. Then you remember that the ghost children grew up in completely different eras to Coraline, where sexism, racism and classism were heavily detrimental to a child's quality of life. Their fantasy worlds wouldn't have just been refuges from negligent parents, but from society as a whole. They would have had far more reason than Coraline to be desperate for a better life, making their fates even more of a TearJerker.

* The Other Mother's line "I'll die without you!!" Sounds overdramatic at first, but knowing what she does to the kids that she gets bored of; it has a double meaning since if she doesn't eat the kid she's after she might starve to death.

** Does this mean there's a connection between the looking-stone tool Coralime has and the buttons?
