Early Corpse Bride Review

Corpse Bride A grave misunderstanding
The year of 2005 has been a busy one for Tim Burton. With two highly anticipated films, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Corpse Bride, it is no wonder that Tim Burton has voiced his regrets on trying to accomplish two things at once. Lucky for him that one of these films, The Corpse Bride, is a return to the film medium that he loves-- stop - motion animation. I have to figure that it must also be a relief that Johnny Depp was partnered up for both of these films as well.

Even though Burton claims that he is pressed for time on The Corpse Bride, it has just been reported that people have been to test screenings for the movie and have been delighted to death by the results. So relax Tim, already good reports and you still got a month and a half to go before the film's release.

Corpse Bride Review

The good people over at AICN have just received a brief review for The Corpse Bride taken off of one of the early test - screenings held by Warner Bros. Even though the film is supposedly unfinished, the reviewer seemed very happy with the film and Tim Burton in general. Check out a snippet from the review below:

I attended a screening of Corpse Bride last night, and I gotta say, it was pretty good. Iím a big Tim Burton fan, from Pee-Wee all the way up until Planet of the Apes, which I found to be one of the worst films Iíve ever seen, Big Fish was underwhelming to say the least and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory looks worse than Apes. So I was a bit apprehensive when I was asked to attend tonight.

Corpse Bride definitely signals Burtonís return to what he does best, quirky characters, an odd story and great visuals. Hopefully he and Paul Reubens can get together for that R rated Pee-Wee movie Paulís been talking about wanting to do.

While I do admit that Nightmare Before Christmas was a cool film, it is not a film that I look for to add to my DVD collection. That being said, the early hype and trailers for the film have convinced me that Burton has polished his style even more, therefore deserving at least a theatre visit.

To check out the whole review for The Corpse Bride, head over to AICN.
