Saw it in theaters when I was a kid and loved it! So awesome to take my daughter to have the same experience and now she loves it too!
This is my favorite movie ever! It’s amazing in IMAX.
The director of the film, a veteran stop-action master named Henry Selick, is the person who has made it all work. And his achievement is enormous.
The movie has a grotesque charm, a pie-eyed magic. With its crack-brained, spidery-limbed, Edward-Gorey-eyed crew of dashing skeletons, Frankenstein ladies, mad scientists with detachable brainpans, swivel-headed two-faced politicians and big bad bug-bag monsters, it comes at you like a Saturday afternoon kiddies' special gone pleasantly berserk.
That Burton darkness, gentle and sweet though it may be (he's David Lynch through a Disney looking-glass), was said to be the one element that kept Batman Returns from becoming the most popular movie of all time. Maybe so. But this time, it's simply perfect. [22 Oct 1993, p.G4]
