Newt's movie review

Tim Burton's signature is all over this. There were lots of musical numbers, plenty of "dead" jokes, singing spiders, serious bosoms, and the corpse bride oddly reminded me a lot of Geena Davis in Beetlejuice. The story was good, the humour was excellent, and my favourite character was a maggot. Seriously. I liked it. The Kid, however, did not care for it all. She didn't like the style of the characters nor their motion, and didn't particularly like the story.
