C'mon Hollywood: Has Tim Burton lost his touch or have we lost touch with Tim Burton?

This past weekend I caught Tim Burton’s FRANKENWEENIE and while sitting there, soaking the film in, I felt an air of familiarity, as if there would be no surprises and a bittersweet, oddly happy ending. Yet, as the film came to a close, I sat there, nearly in tears before the credits rolled, and I thought that maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Perhaps, I wasn’t giving...

The new trailer for Frankenweenie will give you big chills of adorable

FRANKENWEENIE seems to be a return to form for Tim Burton. Revisiting one of his old projects and turning it into something new might have done him a bit of good. A story like FRANKENWEENIE, plus the stop motion animation, then add some of Burton's old favorites to do the voices, and you have a win. I've been a long time fan of Burton's cooky tales. Everything he brought to the screen...
