This was a movie that I got really excited to see back in 2012. It looked so cute and fun and it did not disappoint. This was the last movie I actually saw in theatres (I'm not a huge fan of going to theatres). My mom and I went to see it in mid-October of 2012. I fell in love with it. I got a Frankenweenie journal and bracelet from Claire's for my birthday that year.

I think this is one of Tim Burton's best movies. It has elements of classic horror movies without being gory or scary. I love that it's black and white. It has all the makings of a great Tim Burton film. It's just a really good movie. In the 1980's, Tim Burton had directed a live action black and white short film named Frankenweenie. This film has only been released on the tenth anniversary edition of The Nightmare Before Christmas, which is the copy I own. I have, It's still black and white, which I think is really neat. It just has a heartwarming quality to it. This is a movie that the whole family could enjoy this time of year.

Note: It's kind of funny to me that the main character looks similar to the main character in Corpse Bride, and both are named Victor.

All in all, Frankenweenie is a delightful film that people of all ages will likely enjoy. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys Tim Burton movies or fun Halloween films.

I give this movie a 5 out of 5.
