    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    So glad everyone now has a chance to experience the film!
    Hey, I think Victoria was inspired by one of Tim Burton's original muses, Winona Ryder.

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    I saw it last night, it really wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be. I honestly don't think there was enough material there to make an hour and twenty minute movie, and the songs felt like the only reason they were put there was to add more time to the movie.

    However, I did enjoy what I saw, I just would have liked more of a story and more of a movie.

    You probably should have seen The Constant Gardener instead....

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    I agree that this movie was great. I will be buying it when it comes out.

    My 4 year old cousin liked it so much that as soon as we walked out of the theater he asked if we could go buy it. He was already wanting to see it again.

    IMHO, everyone should see this.

    Anders and I took Paige and her friend to see this last night. Paige and her friend loved it. I thought it was just okay.

    I enjoyed it, but not as much as I hoped.
    I DID, however, make a fool of myself during the Goblet of Firetrailer.

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    I saw it Friday night and enjoyed it more than I had expected to (after reading various reviews and hearing my friend talk about it). I especially liked the Corpse Bride herself. The songs were good, the characters were interesting though I think we needed more time with them. It was no Nightmare, but I liked it

    I thought it was ok as a film in general, the appearance of the movie of course was amazing, but the story just doesn't lend itself to being a full length feature and I love Tim Burton movies. The original folkstory that it's based on is like a couple pages long. But as sunnyg said, the Jr. Miss and her friend thought it was great, so it works on that level.

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    Well, I saw the movie, and liked the film very much... But I don't know if I would say the story is original, but rather "forgotton"... It reminded me of an old song called "The Unquiet Grave" or "Cold Blows the Wind"

    I also found it interesting that Burton used the tree as a gate way to the underworld plot device that he used in Sleepy Hollow...

    If you like this film, I encourage you to see The Brothers Grim...

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    I enjoyed the film overall, but not as much as I was hoping to.

    The songs were a huge letdown because they weren't that memorable at all. I also had difficulty, as did others I was with, understanding the lyrics during the choruses.

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    Remains of the Day- the chorus did get lost with all those voices. I started to pick it out the more I heard it. Plus I love Bonejangles! (Danny Elfman rules)

    More Tears to Shed was a great character development song- best one in the movie. My sympathies were entirely with Emily-

    According to Plan laid out the plot- but was a somewhat painful song in comparison to the others-

    and I agree- there were not enough songs and they did not stick. I have the chorus for Remains of the Day in my head- mostly because I have listened to a clip on Yahoo several times.

    I still love the movie- I am visually in love with it, and the sappy emotional part of me was touched by it, especially the ending which was so beautiful-and for me, Depp, Burton and Elfman is the trifecta of movie nirvana!

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    I liked this movie alot. As we were walking out, my 6 year old asked when we could buy it. There were a couple of times when my attention drifted, but then it seemed to end too fast. I thought it was a great story. I'm sure it won't be long before I am tripping on the toys.

    Re: I saw Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

    did anyone else think that the scene where the Corpse Bride first takes off the veil, was a big reference to big fish where the witch takes off her veil? It looks almost exactly the same.
