SO excited to see any Tim Burton flick--long-time fan. Originally a short animated film--Tim Burton's first creation for Disney when he was an intern, so I was excited to see what he did to stretch it to a full-length film, but also hesitant. We saw it opening day in IMAX for $16 per ticket. In black and white, the film was NOT much different from watching it in 2-D format. For that price, I certainly expected much more. The characters could have been great, but they were not fully developed, and they were clearly all charicatures of someone else or another of Burton's characters from other stories. We did not have enough time with any of the characters to get to know them. Neither the plot nor the relationships were fully fleshed out . The film is just a hollow skeleton without any real development. As the plot began to get exciting, every problem was so immediately resolved, that there was no time or room for a story or tension to develop. Atmosphere and artwork are its strengths.

Fun for everyone! For adults keeping track of old movie references per minute is a fun challenge. Young kids will like the pace and style of the movie -- even thought it is a B&W format! The IMAX 3D was one of the best uses of this technology I've experienced on screen.

I actually went to see this thinking it was another movie but realized quickly that this was a wonderful misunderstanding. This movie has great writing, very interesting characters, and a lot of laughs. The story is also touching and it is relatable for anyone that has lost a pet. I think this is a great halloween outing for any family.

So I went to AMC Lowes in Cherry Hill and the guy at the front door gave me and my daughter the wrong 3D glasses. I then when back (because everything was blurry) and the guy proceeded to give us the wrong glasses again. I thought I was crazy. We finally caught a manger with about 15 minutes to go and he gave us the right ones.
Wow! What a movie the last ten minutes was. I think back at some of the other parts and wished I had been watching in 3D. Definitely a cool Halloween movie to see in 3D.

My nephew, who is 6, fell asleep in this movie. It was late of course, but if a movie captures his attention, like Spiderman 3, he stays awake. I thought some of the parts of the movie were a bit gross for ME even, let alone some of the kids that come to see the movie. My ... how kids movies have changed. I guess they like all this gross stuff ... it's just weird to me.
