Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Frankenweenie

Tim Burton has remade his own 1984 short film, FRANKENWEENIE, and the result is his strongest film in nearly a decade. Burton has always been best when directing his own material, and this tale of a young boy who brings his beloved dog back from the dead is exactly the kind of macabre sentimentalism at which Burton excels. Steeped in Burton's love of classic horror, this is Burton squarely in his element.
