    Nothing to write home about. Good animation at least, but flat on most levels other than that. 7 years 11 months ago

    In a shadowy world between The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sleepy Hollow, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride is a sweet but macabre fairy tale about an awkward young man who accidentally marries an undead girl. Laika's stop-motion animation is filled with zombie and skeleton gags, and an all-star cast lends voices to the proceedings (Christopher Lee as the priest is particularly inspired). Of course, by 2005, we're already well used to Burton's faux-Edgar Allan Poe aesthetic, so there's little here that surprises the senses. Danny Elfman's music even seems to edge towards cues written for The Nightmare Before Christmas. But as a story, it has its charms. The Russian folk tale it dramatizes is unusual, you don't ultimately feel like either of the romantic leads mistreat one another (a very soft-edged triangle there), and the ending is rather beautiful. 2 months 2 weeks ago
