Film #9 of the Halloween 31
The theatre at which I volunteer is starting a "Halloween Classics" series, and the first film was the family-friendly film "Corpse Bride". It has been a long time since I had last seen this movie, and while watching this film again, I realized that I had forgotten how much I loved it.
The story of this film is really well-written. The characters are likable, and are dynamic throughout the short amount of time that makes up the film. The romantic plot of the film is slightly formulaic, however, the end isn't necessarily predictable, as the character development creates a dilemma within the feelings of the audience.
The film is also really well-made as a whole. The animation is beautiful and fluid. Burton's visual style translates really well into an animated film, and it creates an aesthetically pleasant viewing experience. In addition, the music by Danny Elfman is really great, both the score and the original songs. The songs are catchy, and they help to advance the story of the film.
So overall, I really love "Corpse Bride". It is definitely a great film for fans of Tim Burton the revisit, and it is a great film to watch around the Halloween season.
