What a blazing disappointment. Short movie, very short on laughs.. I felt like I saw 75% of the movie in the previews. Hotel Transylvania was 1000 times funnier, more clever, and just plain enjoyable by comparison.

Old school tim burton!

This movie shows that tim burton still has it and hasn't completely left us. This movie is scary and depressing so kids might not be to fond of it but enjoyed Frankenweenie the style of the movie is realy odd but interesting and i thought the black and white woild be distracting but it really isn't. One thing this movie does really well is the voice acting i really enjored edgar in the movie he was by far my favorite part. I would give this movie a 6.5/10

Tim Burton rocked it one more time

Frankenweenie was absolutely DOPE! Visual textures and stylings were breathtaking. Even almost got teary eyed a few times.... Soft spot for dogs i guess. Tim Burton killed it one more time. So beautifully done. Paid many many homages to previous thrillers besides the obvious Frankenstein. ie, Godzilla, Beetlejuice, Pet Cemetery, just to name a few. While a little loud in the IMAX setting with the lightning for younger more docile children, it's good fun for the whole family. Highly suggest it even if you're not taking the kiddos. Surprise was my 2 yo daughter sitting through the whole thing—her first movie experience.

Beautifully written story

Disney spent a lot of money advertising this movie. From the various trailers I thought I knew what the story was about. But I still laugh when the kids did crazy things with the science project. The only segment of the movie that the trailer did not give away was in the last 15 minutes. To me the story has some similarity with Ted which I found equally funny. Both dealt with a boy/man and his relationship with his best friend. But Frankenweenie is definitely a lot suitable for children than Ted is. If you watch many movies this year and saw bits and pieces of the trailer, I can only say that this movie is not what you'd expect. You know what is going to happen but you don't really know why or how until you watch it. I believe this is the best children's movie this year.

Took our grandchild who is 7 to the movie. We all loved it. I love the use of the characters. Tim Burton took a classic horror film and made it FUN for everyone.
