Frankenweenie

I really liked it. I am a really big Tim Burton fan, so my opinion may be biased, but I loved the B&W effect, the story, the characters, and the eerie ghoulishness. If you have seen Burton's early films of Victor and Frankenweenie (short version, non-animated) and can appreicate them, then you will enjoy this movie. One thing to keep in mind for kids is that although the movie is not scary it does have a couple sad moments that could upset young children under 5-7 (approx.). I guess just use your judgement when it comes to taking kids to see this movie.

I took my 4 year old son to see Frankenweenie last night and we liked it. It reminded me alot of Corpse Bride but most of Tim Burton's animated movies seem to be the same. It was cute.

My 1.5 year old son actually sat through the whole money...I guess it was so good that he could sit there for so long. Anyone with a child knows that children have a hard time sitting in one place for more than 10 min, let along 1+ hour. It just tells you that this movie is so good that it will attract a 1.5 year old kid to sit and enjoy the 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!

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.
