Default The Corpse Bride - 10-10-2005, 04:37 PM

The only real problem I had with the movie was that it was too short. Oh well, when you use stop motion like that, there's only so much time you can have to tell the story. Know that scene where Emily is frolicking about in the woods after they've been allowed to go "upstairs" and she has her gown and veil all flowing behind her? That had to be one of the hardest scenes to make, with all that drapery floating about.

I also like the scene where that maggot that looks like Peter Lorre and the black widow spider are singing a song for Emily. A little send up of the cuddly animal friends seen in the Disney movies, I suppose.

I just saw it recently with a bunch of my friends... and there were a TON of puns in it. But it was really good, yet a little short, in my opinion...
But of course, everything Tim Burton does is superfantastic.

Haven't seen it yet as I'm pretty sure it hasn't been released here yet.
But it looks pretty cool so I'm gonna try to get my friend to see it with me

I was sitting here wondering why you all said it was short...then I realized that I had pneumonia when I went to see it, and was coughing a lot, undoubtedly relieved when it was over and I could stop interrupting everyone.

I finally saw it about a month ago, and I absolutely adore it. The ending made me cry though. WHY DID blank HAVE TO DISAPPEAR!!! THAT GOOD FOR NOTHING blank HAD TO MARRY blank AND MURDER blank!!!

Whew...

I'd have to say my favorite part was with the old skeleton man. XD

OSM: *adds ingredients to drink* *drinks it* URP.

Emily and Victor: *blank look*\

OSM: Ah, here it is. *pulls egg out of nearby raven* Okay.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

Very good. But compared to The Nightmare Before Christmas, Big Fish or Edward Scissorhands, it's not Tim Burton's best work. Actually, compared to a lot of his work, it could have been better. Has a great soundtrack though! 6 out of 10
