Frankenweenie is a gorgeous looking film. If you are going to see it, see it in 3-D.

(Keep in mind here that I am of the firm opinion that before Frankenweenie there were exactly 6 films worth seeing in 3-D.)

The reason that you may not want to see the film is that like The Wizard of Oz's Tin Man it has a ticking clock where it's heart should be. Originality and character development are sacrificed on the altar of continuous homages.

My podcast partner on the Mousterpiece Cinema podcast thinks I'm crazy: http://www.soundonsight.org/frankenweenie-a-delightful-throwback-to-old-school-horror/

We will be debating it for the podcast this weekend for next Saturday's show.

Taking the kids on Monday ... very excited. Didn't know whether 3D was the way to go or not (it's ususally not).

3D it is!

It's entirely possible that the reason that I disliked the film is that I have seen too many of the films that Tim Burton likes, (or that I'm crazy) so it might be great for kids - who presumably haven't seen all the Universal Monster Movies (and the Godzilla series and the Gamera series and Willard/Ben and etc...)

In terms of the 3D, for animated films only Coraline tops it.

The other 5 on my list of worth paying to see in 3D in no particular order are:
Cameron's Avatar
Scorcese's Hugo
Scott's Prometheus
Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Wender's Pina

I have nothing to add other than these are both really great points and make up the large part of the reason I stopped watching a while ago (better things to do makes up the last part).
