The Corpse Bride

For some reason, The Corpse Bride is one of those films that just managed to pass me by, until this weekend.  We picked it up on DVD and just watched it, and I have to say, what a weirdly, wonderful tale it is, and very expertly done.  Tim Burton‘s bizare tale apparently has its roots in folklore (according to wikipedia).  It’s certainly quite an odd story. I do like the gothic nature of the heroine, in contrast to the shy Victorian gentleman hero.

If you haven’t seen it before, its well worth watching. If you have, why not pull it out and again revel in the craftmanship of the animation and quirkiness of the story.  It is superb.
