Corpse Bride 
Review - Corpse Bride (2005)
3.5/4 stars

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 solid, but I will admit that the play out is not. There are some great moments and some good jokes, but there are a few too many moments where I can't help but wonder why they felt certain jokes were, well, funny. I guess I shouldn't expect not to have death puns in a kids' movie about such.

I really recommend "Corpse Bride" for anyone who enjoys Tim Burton's work, but I have a feeling this movie goes over with some children like Anastasia did with me: good, but not memorable enough.

Acting: 8/10
Writing: 7/10
Video/Editing: 10/10
Audio/Music: 9/10
Entertainment: 9/10

Final Score: 8.6/10
