The Corpse Bride: First Impressions.

1) It was (too) short.
2) It was bittersweet. (A little like A Nightmare Before Christmas but without the romantic payoff)
3) The characters were a little underdeveloped as were the relationships. It was almost like it was an unfinished movie. Disappointing, Burton. Very disappointing.

Despite its flaws, though, I liked it. 3 / 5 stars.

Interesting point: Note that the people who are alive are a whole lot less colourful than the ones that are dead. Also listen out as Christopher Lee does Gandalf. Funny stuff.

Now to get some sleep. Massive marking loads have turned my brain into porridge.
