My vote is also for "Coraline". If for no other reason that it is uncommon artistry in an industry where approaches are becoming similar. It's refreshing to see an uncommon story created with an uncommon, hand-to-materials craftsmanship.
BTW, also looking forward to Chris Sanders being back at the helm. Lilo & Stitch, as funny as it was, also had a powerful emotional center. I will be pulling for this film via multiple viewings.
