"Must Buy"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Wow Tim Burton has done it again! An intriguingly funny and fun movie that is really rewarded by one of the best Blu-Ray transfers I have seen. The audio is excellent and this is definitely a must buy because it has excellent replay value (I have re-watched it 3 times in the last week) because it is just so awesome :)

"Original, Funny, Lovable characters - a Tim Burton Classic!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I almost expected it to be somewhat similar to the Nightmare before Christmas…not that that's a bad thing, that's also a masterpiece of a film, but this is totally original.

Such a great unique story line and full of humour, it's one you want to watch again and again! Voiced brilliantly by the typical ‘Tim Burton’ cast, and the characters are so believable I couldn't picture the film being ever done with real actors.

The emotions Tim Burton captures with his ever evolving new ways of animation is astounding. Another work of art, add it to your collection, and if you haven't got Nightmare before Christmas yet, get that one too!

"Wow, this tim burton movie in bluray is awesome, a must have!!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Wow, this movie is awesome in bluray, the picture is so clear that the animation looks almost 3d, the sound effects are wicked and this movie is a must have for any tim burton fans especially in bluray format, from young to old this movie is an awesoem addition, even my 3 yr old loves it.

Description

Set in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion, animated feature follows the story of Victor (voiced by JOHNNY DEPP), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride, while his real bride, Victoria, waits bereft in the land of the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love.

Review

Who else but Tim Burton could make Corpse Bride, a necrophiliac's delight that's fun for the whole family? Returning to the richly imaginative realm of stop-motion animation (after previous successes with The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach), Burton, with codirector Mike Johnson, invites us to visit the dour, ashen, and drearily Victorian mansions of the living, where young Victor Van Dort (voiced by Johnny Depp) is bequeathed to wed the lovely Victoria (Emily Watson). But the wedding rehearsal goes sour and, in the kind of Goth-eerie forest that only exists in Burton-land, Victor suddenly finds himself accidentally married to the Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter), a blue-tinted, half-skeletal beauty (how pleasantly full-bosomed she remains!) with a loquacious maggot installed behind one prone-to-popping eyeball. This being a Burton creation, the underworld of the dead is a lively and colorful place indeed, and Danny Elfman's songs and score make it even livelier, presenting Victor with quite a dilemma: Should he return above-ground to Victoria, or remain devoted to his corpse bride? At a brisk 76 minutes, Burton's graveyard whimsy (loosely based on a 19th century Russian folktale) never wears out its welcome, and the voice casting (which includes Tracey Ullman and Albert Finney) is superbly matched the film's gloriously amusing character design, guaranteed to yield a wealth of gruesome toys and action figures for many Halloweens to come. --Jeff Shannon
