FRANKENWEENIE is by far Tim Burton's greatest film since A Nightmare Before Christmas. Forget the Nightmare-rehash Corpse Bride, the over the top formulaic Alice, or the catastrophically bad remake of Planet of the Apes. Just when I had nearly given up hope of a quality Burton film (especially one sans Mr Depp and Ms. Bonham-Carter) this film is a lightning rod that has resurrected hope back to life. FRANKENWEENIE is an endearing homage to the black and white Monster classics of yore. In it Burton blends the legendary Frankenstein story arc of a boy and his monster with his own signature style of colorful characters in a world painted only in shades of gray. Though a remake of his own original live action film, this new creepy animated romp is still quite fun, fresh, and full of thrills and amusements for all ages. FRANKENWEENIE is a must see in 3D.
