Preview screening of Frankenweenie

I like Tim Burton as he is a great film-maker, and I love his old movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland and his most recent movie, Dark Shadows.
Thanks Sweetie for extending her invite again to me to watch the preview screening of Frankenweenie

‘Frankenweenie’ is a 3D stop motion comedy-horror family film directed by creative genius Tim Burton. It is a remake of Tim Burton's 1984 short film, and ‘Frankenweenie’ is filmed in black and white. Tim Burton brings back the gothic tone extremely well in this movie.

It is about a tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, the young boy, Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan) learns about electricity in school and conducts the power of science to bring his best friend back to life. He tries to hide Sparky from everybody and soon discover that getting back a life from death can be monstrous.

I went into the cinema for ‘Frankenweenie’ with high expectations, and came out somewhat satisfied. It is rather abrupt to me in the end, but I stress that this movie is pretty alright, just it had room for improvement. If I have to spot out one flaw of this movie, it would be when Sparky came alive instead of staying dead in the end of the show, as this is against the destiny and what death means and should be.

The movie looks good in black and white. I think Tim Burton did a great job for this movie and the whole voice castings were fantastic too. The Science teacher, Mr Rzykruski (voiced by Martin Laudau) is the limelight in the movie.
It is a pretty entertaining movie for both adults and children, but somehow the black and white movie may cause the kids today to lose their interest.
