Mommy, I'm home

I really want to have a stuntwoman in my film. Stuntwomen rock, and the best one is Zoe Bell, who happens to be a New Zealander (and she's the REAL Xena by the way!). She's the woman behind my favourite fight scene in Kill Bill:

Here's the finished product:

I saw "Coraline" a couple of days ago and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's a magical fairytale, and I really do think that watching it in 3-D is well worth it, definitely not a gimmick in this very special case.

Of course, my opinion is hardly subjective. You see... Coraline happens to look A LOT like a young Eurolush, only with blue hair. She also wears bright blue boots and yellow stripey gloves, which reminds me of Anna. Her name is very similar to Caroline - Julia's sweetie-pie of a daughter in Prague. The little mice make me think of Suse's knitted mouse. The incredible fantasy garden immediately brought Mary to mind. And I dare you to find a more crafty film than this, hello all you crafty bloggers I love so much.

All right...I'll admit it....the scary mother...the one with the buttons for eyes....she's kinda sorta the mother I become when I try to be the mother I think I should be.
