Tim Burton at this Tim Burton-est

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride is not unlike Tim Burton's other films. They're dark, a bit creepy, with predictably Burton-esque visuals, and are peppered with bits of macabre humor. It would not be outlandish to merely dismiss Corpse Bride as "just another Burton film." Alas, even though Burton's Gothic film-making formula hasn't changed much, one should not forget that Burton's signature style is one of the things that make his films so appealing. Corpse Bride is no exception.

Set in the Victorian Era, Corpse Bride is about a young man named Victor that is forced by his parents to be wed to a young woman named Victoria, whom he has never even met.

There are also four songs in the movie. While being wonderful songs, they really serve no purpose in the movie. Still, the music is beautiful and enchanting, fitting very well with the mood of the film when it needs to.

Dark and amazing!

Over 10 years afer making the Nighmare before Chirstmas, Tim Burton comes out with another claymation and CGI mixed movie that is once again incredible. Each of his claymation movies are musicals, and its very well designed as the animated models have to match the vocal renderings of the artists that are performing the songs.
The coolest thing about this movie that shows a lot about how Tim Burton perceives the world is that the world of the living is dark, with many blues and blacks and whites and shades of grey. All of the colors are dark and despairing. Then when you look at the land of the dead, everything is bright and full of color with reds, and oranges, the colors show that everything in the land of the dead is festive and fun.
While I didn't get to see The Nighmare Before Chr...
