2012 | 87 minutes | Rated PG

The 1984 short Frankenweenie is one of my favorite Tim Burton films: It's devoted to the Universal Studios monster films without being slavish, it has a great cast (come back from whatever purgatory you've been enslaved in, Shelley Duvall), and it has enough heart and style to rival Ed Wood and Edward Scissorhands. And now, in the golden age of Hollywood remakes, Burton's revisited Frankenweenie with a stop-motion feature that expands on the original. It's pretty, if a bit humorless—but nonetheless, put this one in the "good" column of Burton's polarizing output.
