It’s one of those quiet Friday nights — everyone is asleep but me and the fish!  I’m doing some tidying up, so I thought I’d stream a Netflix movie while I sorted the mail.  I watched Corpse Bride, a stop-motion film by Tim Burton.  Interestingly enough, the editing was performed using Apple’s Final Cut Pro.  Neat.

This movie’s style was very reminiscent of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, a film I watched in the theaters back in 1993.  Corpse Bride is an interesting but odd movie.  I don’t know if it really worked on all levels.  It’s PG, but I don’t know if I’d want my kids watching it before their teens, because it’s a little on the gothic side.  It’s not quite for adults, because there is a bit of singing that I could do without.  It also wasn’t the most exciting story either. I’d say it was average, a definite rental or at least something to watch on a Friday night when you’ve got nothing much better to do except watch a Tim Burton stop-motion film.
