For Tim Burton, this is one of his best movies in years. For those of us that are horror buffs, he pulls out the stops including a cameo from Christopher Lee (Start Wars Count Duku/ LOTR's Soriman) from one of his old Hammer productions from the 50's. It's classic! Being a horror fan from childhood the movie really hit home. Burton has you emotionally compromised in the first 5 minutes building strong feelings for the main characters. This is a key element to a good horror movie.
I had two five year old's in toe and the fear factor was perfect for their age. They were scared but not too scared to quit watching. It was a great introduction into the genera. They came out of the movie excited for their new hero: Frankenweenie!
This is a must see for kids 5-10 or horror buffs.

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!!!

Just saw "Frankenweenie" it was so good!!! I love Tim Burton!! I have never seen anything of his that I don't love, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" "Corpse Bride" "Alice In Wonderland" "Coraline" just to name a few, they are all good!! This cartoon movie is in Black and White like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" its in the same story line as "Frankenstein" but with a dog. I love that this is a Disney movie. I didn't see it in 3D, because 3D makes me dizzy. I hate that all the Cartoon movies and some live action movies are going 3D. But anyway if you like Tim Burton then go see this movie!!!

great movie to see on the big screen, can't say the D box did much for the movie not enough action to go with the seat movement.
