I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride today.
Tim Burton is an artist, and the stuff that he creates with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Danny Elfman is a ton of fun. And I think co-director Mike Johnson may be a guy to watch.
The film's a weird (but working) mix of sentimentality and "ew". Also, I'm not going to tell you (because it will give away too much of the plot), but a gold star to you if you can figure out after you watch the film what classic (not Disney)children's story Corpse Bride retells.
And there's a nice, subtle, and infinitely deserved nod to Ray Harryhausen that's kind of fun, too.
Now, it's off to find the musical score ...
(You may notice the offical movie website is having problems; while it's down, check out the trailer at Apple.)
