    Frankenweenie—movie review

    Tim Burton has returned to familiar turf in 'Frankenweenie'. That will come as good news to some fans and bad news to others, who may feel that he’s gone to the same well once too often. I enjoyed this feature-length remake of his 1984 short, even though the seams show.

    Immersed in Movies: Will Animated Black-and-White 3-D 'Frankenweenie' Win Burton His First Oscar?

    "Frankenweenie" is not only Tim Burton's best film since "Big Fish" (another rite of passage story), but also a lock for a best animated feature nomination.

    Fantastic Fest Review: With ‘Frankenweenie,' Tim Burton Revives Pet Project, Returns to Form

    "Frankenweenie" is probably Tim Burton’s best film in almost a decade, but that’s not much of a compliment. With his last five films, the filmmaker responsible for some of the most fun, mischievous and magical cinema of the past 25 years has settled into a disappointing routine of utterly safe “w...
