Charming Gothic Tale

The title almost says it all -- definitely a charming and strange gothic tale replete with clever dialogue and quirky characters. Stunning animation and visuals serve as scenic eye candy as well. If you're a Tim Burton fan then you'll probably like this.

When I first saw this movie I will admit I was rather freaked out with the appearance of some characters, including the children. The movie was funny. There was kind of a lesson to be learned with science. It was an emotional movie. if you are a parent, I may not bring the younger children. Teens, I would definitely let them see this movie.

One of my kids (5 and 3) favorite movies is Nightmare Before Christmas, so we were really looking fwd to another Burton masterpiece. We were not disappointed. Fun with just about the right amount of darkness. As in most Tim Burton movies, the characters are fabulous! My 3 year old daughter actually cried at the end...not because she was scared, but sad that the movie was over!

I loved this movie. After seeing so many formula movies this was so refreshing and creative. Love Tim Burton and he did this one just right. My kids are grown but they would have loved it. Parents should know how much their kids can handle before bringing under 8 yr. olds. Some little kids at the theater told me they loved it. It has crazy monsters and strangeness....delicious!

This was a cute movie, with a nice message. My grandson, who is 7 1/2, did not like that it was in black and white. Kids have so many options these days, that they are used to HD Color, and the black and white did not appeal to him. We did not go to the 3-D, however, that might have made a difference.
