Our Thoughts: My family has been waiting to see Frankenweenie. This Black and White film is full of fun and animation and all the quirkiness you enjoy that comes from Tim Burton Films. My 4 yr old asked where the color was. I thought that was kinda comical. Even he noticed there was no color in the movie. My son loved that the boy had a dog and even though the movie depicted a side of death that we are all used to it shows a side of death that we may not expect. My children have yet to experience the loss of a pet or relative yet so they aren’t exactly sure what it is. However, this was a great film to share what does happen and why the grieving process exits. The movie shows a quirky side to bringing dead pets back to live and shares a gift that one boy has for the love of Science.
There are many great characters in Frankenweenie that your sure to love. The little girl although weird she has a great white cat that has special powers. Take a look at this clip your sure to love it.
I don’t want to give away the whole movie but it’s certainly worth the watch. Check out Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” in stores today!!
