Corpse Bride: Good clean fun

Well, it’s Tim Burton doing a necrofantasy stop-motion animation with a couple of musical numbers. My commentary might as well end there: either you liked The Nightmare Before Christmas or you didn’t, and that probably defines how you feel about Corpse Bride. Same (fine) stable of actors as Tim Burton usually uses: the overlap between this and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is actually pretty extraordinary. It’s all quite good: fine production, good voice acting, well-done music: the only weak point is the kind of superficial plot. But you don’t watch this for the plot: you watch it for the pretties. And it’s very pretty. About as pretty as ghuols and skeletons and zombies get, anyways.
