[BD Review] Brad Says ‘Frankenweenie’ Is The Best Tim Burton Movie In A Decade

frankenweenie-banner

Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is playing the ongoing Fantastic Fest in Austin, so we’re chiming in with a review. In the film a young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. Brad absolutely loved the film and says it’s Burton’s best work since at least Big Fish. I tend to agree, the movie flys by and gives Burton something to work with he hasn’t had in a while – a good script.

I don’t think Burton has ever connected with his audience like this. While Frankenweenie may not be the best movie ever made, it’s overflowing with passion, creativity and genuine heart. It comes from a place where filmmakers begin their careers, a place deep within the solar plexus that just bleeds with energy and ingenuity.

The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow). Newcomers include Charlie Tahan as Victor and Atticus Shaffer as Edgar “E” Gore.

Frankenweenie hits theaters on October 5th. Click here for the full review!

    I highly doubt it could be better than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. That was so much better than that piece of shit from the 60s with crappy effects.

    @oasis I highly doubt anything can be as bad as Charlie and the chocolate factory

    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an incredible remake, especially if you’ve ever read the book. He got the look down and EVERYTHING. If that had been the first movie adaption of the material, not a single person would bitch about it. Not a single one.
