2012 Movie #135 - Frankenweenie (2012)
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Frankenweenie. I haven’t been a big fan of Tim Burton’s recent work, but Frankenweenie felt like a return to the strange heart I loved in his earlier films. In particular, I was delighted by a lot of the scene writing by John August. I wasn’t enamored with some of the choices made in the mid-section of the film, but the beginning and end are so strong that those problems are easy to forgive. High-res
