Frankenweenie Reviews

  • 5d ago

    this film is a tribute to Frankenstein where instead of a human corpse there is a dog, the film is funny and disturbing at the same time. In conclusion the most disturbing thing in my opinion is the little girl with the cat

    The movie tries to be a heart-warming spoof of monster films for a children's audience. But, the strange popular goth aesthetic is all it has to offer. There is a severe lack of emotion and depth to the forgettable characters. The story is borderline ridiculous without any charm or focus to keep it amusing. Lacking laughs and including ludicrous science, all of that causes it to unravel in a messy way with a padded conclusion. Not interesting in the slightest of merits.

    The correct word to describe Frankenweenie would be endearing. Because that's just what it is. An endearing story about a boy and his undead dog. The visuals are nice, which is surprising considering you wouldn't expect a black-and-white movie to be visually pleasing but this movie pulls it off. Since this is a Tim Burton movie, there are some great designs and some not-so-great. Due to the stylistic suck, some characters don't even have proper facial expressions and are just stuck with the same facial expression regardless of whether they're actually sad. Keep in mind that the nature of the animation is because the animation for Corpse Bride was too good. It had such fluidity that people actually thought it was CGI which Burton felt undermined the beauty of the art form so he decides to go for a more choppy, occasionally missing frames approach to stand out compared to other stop-motion Halloween family flick ParaNorman. The voice acting and script are also great especially from this science teacher guy during a PTA meeting who had balls of steel to tell them what he did. Frankenweenie probably doesn't need to exist even with the higher production values compared to the live-action short film this movie's based off of released in the '80s that actually got him FIRED from Disney. In the end, though the movie is an endearing underrated stop-motion movie that proves that Tim Burton hasn't lost his eccentric charm.

    Tim Burton adapts his 1982 black and white stop-motion short, Vincent, into a feature length animation overladen with ghoulish aesthetics, delightsome adorability, sly references to horror classics and sweet sentiments for a story about a lonely boy bringing back to life his dead pet dog.

    Pretty cute cast of characters. I find it interesting that Tim Burton wanted to do the film in black and white. This is the best claymation stop motion movie I've seen. The set pieces and everything has so much detail. It's amazing how smooth the character movements are and how they introduce outer elements like rain and lightning into the mix. I think every school would benefit if they had a teacher like the scientist professor in the movie. Really sweet movie with a good heart.
