Movie Review: Frankenweenie in 3D

There is NO SECRET that my hubby and I are HUGE movie buffs, and consider ourselves even bigger fans of anything animated.  Add Tim Burton (a personal IDOL) and Dany Elfman (LOVE!) to work on a movie that is focused on the love of our furry children, and I am smitten for months.  So imagine my absolute GLEE when I was invited to an advanced 3D Screening of Frankenweenie?! 

To simply say that I was looking forward to Frankenweenie, doesn't give credit to my absolute anticipation to see this film.

Movie Review: Frankenweenie in 3D

The amazingly talented Tim Burton working on the Frankenweenie Clay Character

About the Movie
From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” "The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor (voiced by an adorable Charlie Tahan) harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience. In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. Martin Short (Mars Attack!) will voice Victor’s dad this time around, while Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas) will provide the vocals for his mom. Joining Short and O’Hara is Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice) in the role of Elsa and Oscar-winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood) as Mr. Rzykruski. Music by one of my favorite musical artists of all time: Dany Elfman.

Movie Review: Frankenweenie in 3D My Thoughts Can you imagine loosing your best friend - your only friend - in a freak accident?  Now imagine at what lengths you would go to bring back your loyal four-legged friend?
Sound familiar?  Of course it does - especially to those of us that have lost our best friend sometime in our childhood.

Trust me - this movie is not about me - but it definitely put into perspective the possibility of one day loosing my beloved baby Chatito. (like I did Chester when I was only seven years old!).

So, yes - I cried at all the heartfelt moments in the film.
And, I laughed - at all the quirky commentary and at the motley crew of characters.
And, I fully enjoyed every second of the film - and I know that Tim Burton fans will be just as awe-struck as I was.
NOTE: Although the movie can be enjoyed by most adults, I have a hard time believing that anyone under the age of ten will "get" the quirks and eccentricities that are common with any Tim Burton film.  Learn more About Frankenweenie on it's Website.  Like Frankenweenie on Facebook and Follow Frankenweenie on Twitter.
