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 harnesses 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.

Not surprisingly, Frankenweenie brought a lot of fans to theaters. A kind of self-tribute for Tim Burton, and a return to animated adventures that have won over millions, Frankenweenie offered a multi-pronged attack on inciting interest.
Though not without its detractors (me, to a certain degree, among them), the film managed a great response, including solid positioning on many a top ten list. Even for those not completely sold on the effort, there is a lot to love about the film, especially if the genre homage lands.
The story, a reworking of Burton’s own short (included with the home release), may include monsters and a certain degree of mayhem, but it delivers on its celebration of friendship, childhood, and a boy’s love for his dog. It’s a quirky mix, but one that showcases the power of sci-fi in telling stories that deliver reality better for their lack of reality. »
