Great movie!! Another Tim Burton classic!
I purchased this movie and watched it for the first time. I loved it!! Tim Burton's Corpse Bride carries on in the dark, romantic tradition of Tim Burton's classic films Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Set in a 19th century European village, this animated feature follows the story of Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride, while his real bride, Victoria, waits in the land of the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love. It's a tale of optimism, romance and a very lively afterlife, told in classic Tim Burton style.Read full review

Excellent family movie - especially if you're weird like me!
Those who are fans of Tim Burton's former works - including such TIMELESS CLASSICS as Nightmare Before Christmas & Edward Scissorhands - will love Corpse Bride, too. The musical numbers are just as hauntingly catchy as ever & the voice acting/casting are superb as always. You really can't go wrong! :D

The CORPSE BRIDE
Corpse Bride, guided by a Russian folk tale about a murdered bride's love for a man who happens to be alive! Tim Burton roughed out a few sketches and gave character designer Carlos Grangel free rein. Screenwriters John August, Caroline Thompson and Pamela Pettler updated the story to Victorian England, and a talented cast signed on to do the voices.
Heading this list of talented actors is Johnny Depp, who brings a touching tenderness to Victor Van Dort, a timid man whose his parents (Tracey Ullman and Paul Whitehouse) arrange to marry him off to Victoria (Emily Watson), the daughter of the titled but penniless Everglots (Joanna Lumley and Albert Finney). Victor is so nervous at the wedding rehearsal the pastor (Christopher Lee) tells him to leave until he learns his vows.
In the forest, Victor practices by putting a ring on a tree branch protruding out from the ground that turns into a dead woman in a wedding gown and she quickly accepts his proposal. Whatever is Victor to do, he was getting to like Victoria, but The Corpse Bride, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter, has taken a shine to him and leads him unwillingly to the Land of the Dead! This is where the film hits its stride.
The best part of all is the love story. Victor is attracted to both women. In the guise of a family film, it evokes a darkly erotic obsession that would be a test for any filmmaker, and Burton aced it!
Very creative film! The visuals are amazing!Read full review

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (DVD, 2006,Full Frame)
I have always been a Tim Burton fan!!! It's the attention to detail,down to the perfection of the story. He always has you sitting on the edge of your seat!!! Leading you to wanting more, but totaly leaving you to think about whats going on in his mind and how he gives each of his characters the every day life of how we live. But he has the unique way of adding sanity to films that he has produce, as well as adding a little insanity with it!!! I have never disliked any of his films and have a good size collection. I saw it when it was first advertised on tv and wanted to buy it. I always watched it because my daughter bought it for my grandson, they moved to texas, so I bought one for my self.I so far have never been dissatisfied with any of his movies!!! roman46houston
