I’ll be seeing Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie on Saturday afternoon with my ASIFA-Hollywood peeps at a screening on the Disney lot. Looking forward to it – especially as Betsy Sharkey in The Los Angeles Times says “the artistry reaches absolute perfection… and Burton has never done it better” (though she notes, “it’s the story that poses some problems”). A.O. Scott in The New York Times simply calls it “a sweet and creepy homage to classic monster movies”.
It’s out today and you can see it yourself. How does it compare to The Corpse Bride or Nightmare Before Christmas? Where does it stack on the list next to ParaNorman and Hotel Transylvania? Give your opinions here (and, as usual, this discussion is only open to those who have actually seen the film).
