I bought a Frankenweenie t-shirt a while back, mostly because I liked the design. Hana looked at this shirt and asked “Why are you wearing that?!”. She thought it was quite terrible. So, I decided to watch this myself, I knew Hana wouldn’t watch it, and James probably wouldn’t be interested either.
It was not too bad. Very Tim Burton, which means it probably didn’t go down well in Japan, too dark and not cute. What amazed me was the fab stop-motion animation, it looked so good that I thought it must have been CG.
The story was nothing special, but I did like the various horror book and film references and dialogue.
