Fun songs, great animations, a pleasant detour from live action film. 7/10.
There is a point where Tim Burton films seem … well, all the same. There is also a point (some time around Sleepy Hollow) where Johnny Depp stopped being fun to watch. Given these two things, it’s sometimes hard to remember when that combination worked. The 2005-released Corpse Bride is an example of what I call good Tim Burton – think Beetlejuice and the 90’s Batman movies. A fun and silly romp that doesn’t have pretensions of being anything else. 9/10.
