From Disney and creative genius Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes the hilarious and offbeat Frankenweenie, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor hanesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life - with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous. Complete with electrifying bonus features, Frankenweenie is alive with enchanting fun for the whole family.

FRANKENWEENIE is a black-and-white 3D stop-motion horror/comedy directed by Tim Burton (DARK SHADOWS, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, CORPSE BRIDE). What a fantastic, funny, imaginative film! I preferred this film to the recent PARANORMAN, and it was almost as good as the amazing CORALINE. Tim Burton's films have been getting worse and worse in terms of quality, in my opinion, but this is a huge improvement!

Young Victor Frankenstein has no friends except for his adorable pet dog, Sparky. When tragedy strikes and Sparky is killed, Victor feels more alone than ever. Until one day, when he performs a dangerous and controversial experiment, which brings Sparky back to life. Soon, however, his class mates discover what he has done and attempt to bring back all the dead pets of the town. Can Victor and Sparky stop the onslaught of deformed, monstroys pets, or will the town be plunged into total chaos?

The storyline was incredibly original and inventive, and featured some very powerful moments. I felt that the black-and-white really enhanced the storyline and made the film all the more enjoyable. The ending was scary, action-packed and emotional, and I thought the dialogue was very realistic.

The characters were fleshed-out, creative, whacky and thoroughly interesting. When the dog dies, you really feel sorry for Victor and there are one or two scenes that really make you care about pretty much every character, even the cruel ones. Weird Girl was hilarious!

The animation was a lot smoother than many of the other stop-motion flicks I've seen. I loved PARANORMAN so much but some of the animation was a bit dodgy. FRANKENWEENIE was far more impressive animation-wise. I think the 3D really wasn't needed at all, but it didn't take away from the films brilliance.

Tim Burton is one of the Brothers Grimm, a born fabulist and storyteller with a gothic imagination and macabre sense of humour. He thinks in parables and gives us beautiful and memorable fairytales. He’s also an artist with heart. Some tales told by him may be sentimental, but sometimes it’s good to say, “Three cheers for sentimentality!” Such is the case here in this story about a boy who tragically loses his dog, a being he can’t live without. A love story, then, between Victor and Sparky, boy and dog.

One day on the ball field Victor and friends are playing baseball. Someone hits a home run and the ball flies into the street beyond the field. Sparky is feisty, energetic. He will chase anything — cats, birds, butterflies. And now, as it happens, a baseball. The ball rolls, Sparky runs. A car speeds in the street. It tries to stop but can’t. Or not in time. Sparky dies. Victor is devastated.

The devastation lasts a long time, longer than normal. Concentration goes, energy too. Victor, once so perky and joyful, is listless, lonely, lost. His parents love and console him. They tell him Sparky still lives in his heart. But Victor, too crushed and bitter to care, says to them:

“I don’t want him in my heart. I want him here with me.”

Victor is nerdy, skinny, a dorky science geek. He loves the power and magic of science, its transformative, alchemical properties. And it’s almost predestined that this should be, as his is a literary-scientific name — Frankenstein. Like God, he is interested in the power of resurrection. He wants to be a great alchemist who can turn death into life.

Sparky is gone until a spark, quite literal, is struck in science class by the teacher. A dead frog, placed on a petri dish, is wired up to an electrical power source. Mr.

Sometime in the 80s of the last century, the quirky visionary Tim Burton made a short, "Frankenweenie." This was not widely available, if not even banned by Disney. And finally, the full-legth 3D stop-motion "Frankenweenie" hit the big screens of the world in 2012, and I was excited to finally watch it at home, a few days ago.

The new "Frankenweenie" (delightful and wonderful stop-motion, if you loved Coraline (Blu-ray 3D) [2009] [Region Free] and ParaNorman (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UV Copy) [2012], you will love this!) is one of Burton's best works, and it has pretty simple and humane plot - a young boy's adored dog (a pit-bull!) dies. What has one to do, instead of mourning?

Victor, who is an introverted loner, but also quite an ingenious and brave kid, encouraged by his science teacher (An Eastern European, but of course!), decides to dig the pet up, hit him with a lot of electricity and, perhaps, succeed in bringing his Sparky back to life. Is he lucky in his enterprise, you wonder? Oh yeah, but the experiment carries quite a few... what to call it... side effects. Naturally, these things never quite work out the way we expect. And this time Burton really raises the ante with a monster rally of a plot that adds several additional fiends and layers of movie memories.
