A sweet story, with the right touch of sad. The music (piano segments in particular) add to the atmosphere. Visuals are good, animation and voice acting are decent, and the underplayed humor is clever. Some parts were enjoyable, others were just 'so-so'.

The film is about a nervous groom flubs his arranged marriage and finds himself in the forest where he practices his vows only to end up with a corpse bride in the land of the dead. This movie has a dark look to it and it works for this kind of film because the movie is about being married to a dead person.

Although this is a lesser known Burton film, it holds the same charm and simplistic integrity of the director's earlier works, such as Frankenweenie or the short film, Vincent. The film's stop motion is charming and hauntingly beautiful and the film tells a fractured fairytale that comes with great touches of dark comedy.

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. However, there's a change in plans when Victor gets into a bizarre mix-up, and accidentally proposes to a corpse named Emily.

Review - Corpse Bride (2005)

Neither Victor Van Dort (Johnny Depp) nor Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson) were ready for marriage when their parents arranged it, but they soon overcame this feeling upon meeting. Problems arise, however, when Victor accidentally finds himself married to a corpse (Helena Bonham Carter). The otherworldly love triangle plays out in Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride."

The look of this movie is obviously wonderful. The movie has, in my opinion, two of the most beautiful moments in cinema of 2005. The animation is elegant and graceful, never skipping a beat.

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.

The story is sol...

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...
