I was surprised at how dark the theme was for being a Disney movie. Of course, Disney makes great endings! Don't want to give it away. I loved the story line. Loved that it was in black and white. Made the movie very retro. Liked it very much.

The old-style Tim Burton animation is back and it delivers yet again. Literally the only thing missing was music. As a huge fan of Nightmare and also enjoying Corpse Bride I guess I just expected more of a musical, but it's not. However, the story is extremely fun and very clever. Homage is paid to all the old classic horrors films through characters and scenes which adds a little bit to the enjoyment. The characters mesh well together and each one has their own humor. However, Weird Girl and her cat, Mr. Whiskers, are my personal favorite. Take the kids or leave them at home, you'll enjoy this film regardless!

Being a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, I was hoping to find more of the same, but this black and white film was more of a love letter to monster movies of yesteryear (and a beautifully done one at that), but it was pretty forgettable as far as kid entertainment goes. Usually, my kids leave the theater talking about the best parts of a film over and over, but this one left them nothing but one funny scene to remember. I was expecting great things, but like many family movies as of late, I found this one appealing more to adults than to kids.

When you were younger and had a pet, particularly a dog, then you may rekindle past feelings. That's what I experienced. A boy's best friend was his dog, and when the day happened that his dog died, it makes you remember when your pet died too. Through what you already know from Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein," happens, you want to see and hear that familiar bark again. It's funny how animals can make us feel. Lastly, I saw it in 3D - however, not surprising, 2D is satisfactory enough.
