Did you know that Tim Burton made a movie just like this in 1984. Tim Burton is back at he's best. The Visual are great.

While it isn't exactly a classic like The Nightmare Before Christmas, this little remake is relatively harmless.

Harmless animated film, with good intentions. The humor's not consistant and none of the human characters are interesting, save for the science teacher (who is underused). Sparky, the dog, is the saving grace. There is much meandering in the middle and the ending just desolves into a bunch of routine homages, and recreations, of scenes from classic horror/sci-f films. There is a message about letting go of your pets, but it's lost amidts the confusion and the final moments feel like a cop-out.

Like most Tim Burton movies and Winona Ryder movies, it's pretty good. The story was interesting. There was a lot of cool stuff in it. However, if you've seen most of the trailers to it, then you've pretty much seen the movie.

Review: Frankenweenie

Tim Burton's Frankenweenie is a remake of a short film of the same title that he had made several years ago. I have not seen his short film, but according to Wikipedia it's a beloved family movie. The feature-length animated film is lively and entertaining. I enjoyed it. Tim Burton pays homage to the classic monster films with heart and style.

The plot of Frankenweenie is fairly simple and straight forward. Young Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan) and his dog share a special friendship. Technically the dog is Victor's best (and only) friend. Victor isn't exactly the social or sporty young boy. He enjoys science more than anything else, and because of that his parents, voiced by Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara, think he's "different." Daddy convinces Victor to take part in...

Weird, Creepy, Hilarious Entertainment

I'll just put it out there; I'm not very familiar with many of Tim Burton's directorial efforts. The only films I've seen, in which Burton was at the wheel, was the immensely underrated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the immensely underperformed Alice In Wonderland. So while I can't tell you how the stop motion animated Frankenweenie ranks in comparison to Burton's other films, I can tell you that this is a very good movie, worth watching.

But Frankenweenie certainly won't appeal to everyone. The story line may be a bit too disturbing for some (though the PG rating does help constrain it), but teens and adults shouldn't mind.

Frankenweenie is actually a remake of a 1984 short film of the same name, produced by Disney, and directed by Tim Burton. If you didn't already know ...
