Format: DVD
Tim Burton has become reknowned for his movies about the weird and the macabre. Sometimes weird, FUNNY and macabre.

And "Corpse Bride" has all three qualities, mixing in the bizarre and wacky with a bittersweet love story. It also has the sort of goofy ickiness that really expert haunted houses have -- you're enjoying the ghouls and skeletons too much to care who it's aimed at. This is an "underground" film in the best sense of the word.

Victor (Johnny Depp) is at the rehearsal for his arranged wedding, when he forgets his vows. Not a good omen. He runs out and rehearses it by himself, and ends up slipping the ring on the finger of a dead girl, Emily (Helena Bonham Carter). But Emily, who died tragically, falls in love with Victor and considers herself married to him.

Now Victor is trapped in the underworld, which is a surprisingly cheery, upbeat place when you consider everyone is dead. He tries to find his way back to the world of the living, but soon finds himself more drawn to the tragic Emily. Now he must make the ultimate choice: Will he return (for as long as he lives) to his arranged bride, or stay in the underworld with the Corpse Bride?

You'd think a movie about dead people would be depressing. At the very least, dark. But surprisingly "Corpse Bride" is neither -- instead, Burton has crafted a sweet, enchanting little love story where one of the people happens to be dead, and which is set in the underworld. There's nothing frightening about it. If anything, it's enchanting.

Is the plot original? Heck no -- boil it down, and you have a boy-meets-girl-while-engaged-to-another-girl story. But it's the delivery that's charming, from the funny dialogue ("Play dead!

Any fan of Tim Burton's 'Nightmare Before Christmas' will love this film. It's a darkly gothic, yet beautiful love story about a young man, Victor who accidentally marries a corpse while practicing his wedding vows. His 'bride' Emily had been spurned by her lover in life, and is desperate to find love with her new groom, whilst the hapless Victor wants only to return to the land of the living and his beautiful fiancée, Victoria. Meanwhile the sinister Lord Barkis Bittern is determined to step into Victor's shoes and marry Victoria himself.

Filmed in stop/motion (like Nightmare) the film has a surreal but captivating air. The living world is colourless and dark whilst the land of the dead is a vibrant, lively place, full of music and colour...a nice twist on the usual view.

Tim Burton has once again teamed with Johnny Depp (the voice of Victor) and his real life partner Helena Bonham Carter (the corpse bride). He also uses the voices of other well-known talents such as Joanna Lumley, Richard E. Grant, Tracey Ullman, Christopher Lee and Jane Horrocks to name but a few. Danny Elfman composed the music for the movie and with his usual flair has matched the mood of the film perfectly.

The DVD has been well produced and there are several featurettes including a music only track, interviews with Tim Burton and Danny Elfman, production galleries, and a look at the actors performing their voice-overs. This is a quality film on a quality disc and well worth adding to your collection.

One of my stepdaughter's favorite movies. She loves Tim Burton and we own quite a few of his movies. Lots of humorous scenes. Younger children might find parts of the movie scary my younger daughter (5 at the time) begged to watch it with her older sister and we allowed her and she loved the movie as well.

"Hey, give me a listen

Your corpses of cheer

At least those of you

Who still got an ear

I'll tell you a story

Make a skeleton cry

Of our own jubiliciously

Lovely Corpse Bride"

"Tim Burtons' Corpse Bride" is a film that may well suffer from heightened expectations, given the place that "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" has in popular culture and the long period we had to wait for a second hauntingly animated film done with similarly distinctive characters. But this 2005 film, which has just been nominated for the Best Animated Feature Academy Award in time for its DVD release, has its own charm and will win its own cadre of devotees that will want a figure of the lovely Corpse Bride on their nightstand. After all, there is something poignant in the question: can a heart still break once it has stopped beating?

Directed by both Burton and Mike Johnson (who animated "James and the Giant Peach"), this is the story of the unlikely love triangle in which Victor Van Dort (voiced by Johnny Depp) finds himself involved. A marriage has been arranged between Victor and Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson). His parents, who sell fish, want the prestige of being associated with the Everglots, while her parents, who are secretly broke, want the neuvo riche money of the Van Dorts. The prospect of marrying a woman he has just met is rather daunting to Victor and after botching the rehearsal he goes off into the woods to practice his vows, which is how he comes to accidentally marry the Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter). She brings Victor home to meet her friends and he ends up taking her to the land of the living to meet his parents. He tries to explain that he never wanted to marry a corpse (who does?
