An Academy Award nominee and National Board of Review Award winner as 2005's Best Animated Feature, "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" carries on in the dark, romantic tradition of his classic "Edward Scissorhands" and "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas".
Set in a 19th-century European village, this stop-motion animated feature follows the story of Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp), a young man whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride (voiced by Helena Bonham Carter), while his real bride Victoria (voiced by Emily Watson) waits bereft in the land of the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict 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 Burton style.

Enter Tim Burton Director master of the dark spooky film noir and you have an animated film drawing experience from A Nightmare Before Christmas but not quite as good a tale....The Corpse Bride is simplistic in plot when a young man attempts to wed a bride, a ghost bride from the past who was taken away from this world yearns to marry the young man instead.Whilst initially bitter and heartbroken the young man tries to escape to no avail and therein lies the story to come......The Corpse Bride is a dark look at at a children's tale with a happy ending with various characters such as the real life bride's snobbish parents and a make belief land of the dead. This is an entertaining tale if not fantastic....but one thing that is fantastic is the picture quality of this blu-ray. Colours are vibrant almost 3 dimensional so much so that the various characters almost look as if they are touchable on screen. Sharpness and clarity is top drawer and the sound is both crystal with a surround atmosphere that would haunt almost any living room. I believe the 12 years and over is a good film rating as this would be a scary film possibly for under 8 years.....but having said that if you want the best picture and sound from a blu-ray animation then you would have found it in Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride....Recommended
