Based on Tim Burton's original movie he created a very well remake of a live-action film into stop-motion. Black and white through out the whole film makes it feel like your watching an older movie and the theme is Frankenstein. Of course. Main character pulls a hat trick brings back his dog gets tricked into showing how he did it now all the other kids are doing it and when they do... Hits the fan.
This film is fantastic and cute. Lots of cliché's. Something you should watch at least once.

Tim Burton is back at it again with his newest creation "Frankenweenie." You will laugh, you will cry, but most important you will understand the bond between an animal and an owner. They are part of your family, and they hold a place in all of our hearts. A young boy goes through that feeling of losing a dog, and will do anything to bring him back. He will use Science that he learned from his teacher to hopefully bring back the dog from the grave. This movie could be scary for young children, and is not your typical happy movie that you would expect. It is a good movie, and you should go check it out. I know how it is to lose a pet, so it brought back many feelings i had when my dog and cat died. If only i can bring them back. This is a dark, scary, and normal movie we expect from Mr. Burton. Go see it! You will shed a tear.

The animation is beautiful even for Black & White. Sweeping scenes, rain, lightening, and fire were worked in remarkably well in this stop motion animated piece. The dark themes and characters may disturb the little ones. There are several momonts where tissues may be needed,
No big belly laughs. Just nerdy fun.
Matineee prices okay.

I'm a big Tim Burton fan as it is, so i loved the movie that reason. Being a stop-motion black and white film was a classic feature i loved. Typical animal death scene was heart breaking and tear jerking to say the least. Story line was good and the voice actors were spot on with their characters. Some of the scenes however such as one of the ending scenes, was a little graphic and some younger kids may not take well to it. Over all it was a great movie though.

It's to be expected in a Tim Burton movie I suppose! My daughter didn't particularly care for it. However, she did love "The Nightmare Before Christmas", "Coraline" and other strange movies like that...but she didn't like this one too much! She wanted to leave in the middle of the movie. If she doesn't like it, she doesn't want to stay! I do recommend for a Saturday movie to give the kids something to do!
