Corpse Bride (***)

There is much to appreciate about Tim Burton's latest foray into stop motion animation. Like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride is a gorgeous piece of pop art. Even when the story sags, the visuals are marvelous and they keep you enthralled. It's quite a morbid film for the under 10 set, but nothing they couldn't handle. Danny Elfman contributes some memorable songs, and the scenes set in the Land of the Dead are, surprisingly, the lifeblood of the film. I'm a big fan of stop motion animation, and Corpse Bride delivers the goods.
