Excellent, Without a doubt!!
As Good As It Gets
Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Too many potential themes were stuffed into the story, but the disappointing play didn't turn it into any complete theme, so it was only possible to rely on too many random events to achieve the dramatic effect of individual clips. Therefore, despite the stunning opening and the perfect atmosphere, the film eventually dragged the narrative rhythm with loose story clips. Many of the private emotions of director Tim Burton were unmasked in the film, and it turns out that he is more suitable for showing witchcraft than discussing science.
I always loved Disney cartoons, but also Tim Burton's. And then I run into a seemingly incompatible combination. Burton's tribute to Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" in Disney production. Story about a boy whose dog gets killed just before school science fair and who decides to take drastic measures. Emotional in Disney manner, morbid in Burton manner and beautiful in both.7/10
After the loss of his best and only friend, his dog Sparky, Victor tries to bring him back to life using electricity. Unknown to him is the fact that his experiment will be copied by others who don't have his sincere and honest intentions leading to chaos throughout the city.Although it started very promising, it slowly began to lose momentum falling into the other side of interesting. From a lovable and captivating drama it jumped right into the bowels of horror (aspect which I didn't like) leaving with the impression that the man who wrote the script remained without any ideas. I can't say that I was disappointed by its finale but it was a bit, let's say inconclusive although it was positive. I really liked the animation, the fact that it was presented in black and white really gave it a great feeling but it was unfortunately let down (quite badly I'd say) by its plot. An average movie overall in my humble opinion.
Favourite movie-quote - "Arf! Arf! Arf!...." Frankenweenie is an "electrifying" tale of a boy and his dog. It tells the gruesome, little story of young Victor Frankenstein who conducts a daring and amazing scientific experiment in hopes of bringing his beloved dog, Sparky, back to life.With the successful re-animation of Sparky, Victor soon finds that he (as well as many others) must now face some unforeseen and monstrous consequences.All-in-all, Frankenweenie certainly had its fair share of flaws, but, just the same, I really hadn't expected to enjoy this film as much as I did.Appropriately filmed in b&w - Thank goodness that this picture didn't contain any musical numbers.
