What Is It About This Movie?

Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride is my kind of movie.  It’s moody, creepy, and fun.  The voices are excellent and the visuals, as expected, are imaginative and amusing (I can’t help but laugh at any shot with Maudeline and Finis Everglot in the same frame).  It’s a movie that you might want to make an October tradition.  Which I have – kind of.

 The trouble is I can’t ever stay awake through the whole thing.

 I’ve tried to watch it several times each Halloween season since 2006 and have never seen it through to the end. 

 2011 will mark my sixth year (and – by season’s end – well over a dozen attempts); I’ve failed once already and there’s only one weekend left.

 Wish me luck.
