Should be picking this up tomorrow. The trailer looked quite good.

Saw this in the theater and the film's everything-and-the-witch’s-cauldron approach to the storytelling and the gags, hardly any of which elicit more than a sigh. Adam Sandler is equally bad as an animated actor as live. Universal should sue for damages to the reputation of its classic movie monsters. You should check out the infinitely better, spookier, and altogether more inspired ParaNorman. I would rent this first before buying.

It's more for the kids, they want it. I have paranorman also which I enjoy.

Based on the trailer and the commercials, I gave it a pass, for the reasons subavision listed above. I'm sure kids will dig it though.

Just saw it and thought it was pretty entertaining! Out of the animated films this year I would say it holds it on.

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

My whole family really enjoyed this movie in the theater and is a definite buy. Also really really recommend Wreck it Ralph..

Feeling the Purple Power thanks to HD DVD and Blu Ray.

Just FYI... Being a stupid Sony bluray,... The 3d works as well as amazing spiderman.. I should have noticed the studio before I bought the 3d version.... Could've saved $8

Rented this one out of Redbox over the weekend…. I’m not big into animation, but I thought it was enjoyable. Some really big names involved in this as voice actors. I haven’t had the opportunity to see anything with Selena Gomez associated to it I don’t believe. It worked for me anyway; it was cute.
