It was a very good movie! We had a blast with my nephew and my husband and I are Burton fans. But there are situations and topics that may not be great for the young ones. It's Burton baby. You pretty much know what you're in for when you go in. Just keep that in mind.

As always, Tim Burton delivers!! This review may border on biased, as I am a fan of Tim Burton. The movie was wonderful in a sense of that it had the action and excitement of horror flix of yesteryear. From the Professor that reminds me of (and I am sure a lot of other who remember) Vincent Price. To steal a term from Scooby Doo cartoons, it hall the usual suspects of "groovy ghoulies". Elsa Van Helsig was adorable, especially bc she was played by Winona Ryder. The movie will be an instant classic and I am sure you will be able to buy over-priced memorabilia at Disneyland and Downtown Disney. MUST GO!!!

If you've seen the long trailer then you've seen much of the plot. Not great but ok. There were some homages to other classic monster films, but they didn't add much entertainment value. Worth seeing in the theater but not worth buying on BluRay.
Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman are better.

I loved this movie. It was great to see the friendship of a boy and his dog, and how a dog is your forever friend. I cried but also smiled during the movie.

Frankenweenie was a wonderful movie. I will probably see it again because Tim Burton's attention to detail is so spot on that I want to go back and look for things I might not have noticed the first time. Sparky and Victor's relationship took me right back to my own childhood pets and at times it was very emotional. The characters were all just perfectly blended into the story and I never expected to be so touched by this story but it did pull at my heartstrings and remind me how much love our pets bring to our lives. I especially loved how he paid homage to all of the classic horror movies throughout the movie.
