Anyone who's a fan of Nightmare before Christmas obviously is going into Corpse Bride with expectations set high. I was one of those people and well, I have been terribly disappointed. Terribly. Where to start? Well, first off the look of Corpse Bride is pretty much the exact same as Nightmare. In fact I wouldn't be surprised is there were some of the same models used. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but something different might have been refreshing and at least a salvageable feature. The characters we get are barely likable save the Corpse Bride herself. Johnny Depp's character is really lame compared to what we've seen in Jack Skellington. There is the coolness of having Christopher Lee voice one of these characters, but he's barely used and wasted on this picture. There are MAJOR plot holes, and not just the kind that you can forgive because you love all things Tim Burton. The kind that you CAN'T forgive because you value your own intelligence. Music? Annoying and forgettable - NEXT! Ending? I laughed uncomfortably yet uncontrollably. This one is terrible folks. If you're a Tim Burton fan, count this as the equivalent to seeing him picking his nose. It will shatter your opinion of his artistic credibility. 3/10 - nice animation but only an hour long? Effort in storytelling would have been nice.
