Tim Burton movies are always…well, most of the time…enjoyable!

"They call me Tim Most-Of-The-Time-Enjoyable Burton!"

“They call me Tim Most-Of-The-Time-Enjoyable Burton!”

And this is no exception! It’s a wonderfully made stop-motion animated remake of an earlier short of the same name directed by Tim Burton.

I had completely forgotten that it was a live-action short!

The film received positive reviews, critical praise, and was even nominated for the “Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film”! And now, I have something very controversial to say!

Are you ready?

I think that this film should have won the Academy Award!

Calm down, calm down! Get your heartbeat rates back to normal, resuscitate yourselves, etc. I’m not taking back that statement; I believe that this film should have won the Academy Award!

Enough of that! Let’s take a look at the film!

The film is about a young boy named Victor Frankenstein

My, what a tiny nose he has!

and his beloved pet dog, Sparky!

Modern Way of Walking the Dog!

Victor is a well-behaved, if not somewhat quiet, kid who enjoys making amateur films as well as playing with his dog.

But an accident occurs which results in his beloved Sparky’s death!

I'm guessing Sparky was a Christian?

Victor has a hard time coping with Sparky’s death until one day when his science professor, Mr. Rzykruski gives a lesson on electricity and how dead animals’ muscles can still move by the application of some electricity!

This causes Victor to have a brainstorm and he decides to try to revive his dead dog and bring him back to life! And that’s just the beginning of our story!

The film captures your attention and interest from the beginning. It’s heartwarming and, for the most part, incredibly voice acted. The characters are all lovable and this film features probably the best animated parents that I’ve seen in a long time!

The film also features smoother stop-motion movements than “ParaNorman” and “The Pirates! Band of Misfits”!

"A curse shall rise upon thee!"

"Prepare to walk the plank!"

It features more timelessness than “Wreck-It Ralph”!

"I'm gonna wreck you!"

“I’m gonna wreck you!”

And it features a more focused and expounded upon story than “Brave”!

"This arrow aimed at you isn't for decoration, you know!"

“This arrow aimed at you isn’t for decoration, you know!”

And for that, and many more reasons, do I believe that “Frankenweenie” should have won the “Academy Award for Best Animated Feature”!
