I am an unabashed fan of Tim Burton's movies. Big Fish, The Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands, The Nighmare Before Christmas --- all works of cinematic art. Frankenweenie is no exception. The man is a genius, especially when it comes to animation. For all the limitations that animated movies have to offer, Burton excels at creating an essence of creepy originality and gothic creativity. Frankenweenie is much inspired by some of the more classic horror films, only its told in a more kid-friendly manner. That's not to say that the movie is completely age-appropriate but Burton does a decent job of dealing with the more serious issues in a darkly humourous way. I will admit, at times there are those familiar echoes, script-wise, but it's touched by Burton's unusual eccentricity which keeps it from feeling too monotonous. In it you'll find the usual cast of characters, of course, but what makes the film so unique is the addition of Victor's loveable, yet horrifying dog. Sparky will steal your heart with his adorable mannerisms and gruesome quirks. If I had one big criticism of the film, it's that there wasn't enough characterization into Victor. Frankenweenie barely scratches the surface on questioning his actions which renders the plot as somewhat hollow. The voicework was outstanding, featuring the return of several Burton alums and the music is eerie perfection. I loved the dark atmosphere of the stop-motion which adds layers to the story's creepiness. And perhaps even more remarkable is subtle homage to films of horror movie's past. Though I wouldn't say Frankenweenie was my favourite Burton film, I found the ending be a bit too empty, it still found a place in my heart with it's quirky charm and extraordinary vision. Frankenweenie might be just as ugly as the original story, but its definitely not lacking in heart. Featuring stellar voice talents, remarkable animation and one very cute puppy, this film is a winner for families and those that share a mutual appreciation for classic horror. Not quite a masterpiece, but still a wonderful achievement for one of my favourite directors.

I haven't received my dvd yet. It was shipped on January 21. 15 business days later and I still haven't received it. B&N has the worst customer service. After sever emails with no responses, I called them. It was a huge waste of time. The only suggestion the CS rep offered is that I should call customs. Why couldn't she do it for me? Well, apparently, once it's shipped its no longer a B&N concern. She didn't even offer a phone number to assist me with calling customs. B&N has the worst customer service, I will never order from them again! If you enjoy ordering online and appreciate good customer service, visit amazon. I always receive free shipping and I get my items within 3-5 days.
