I must admit I was a little surprised....

....over the glowing review that Christianity Today gave the movie Corpse Bride. You can read it here.

Here's the last paragraph of the review (which gave the movie 3 1/2 stars out of 4):

Not all Christians are going to appreciate this film, unable to separate fantasy from reality. A general rule of thumb: If you tend to boycott all things related to Halloween, you might think twice about this film. But make no mistake, stop-motion is a form of animation, and unless the forthcoming Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit is more impressive, this movie is the frontrunner to win the 2006 Academy Award for Best Animated Film. Sweet, funny, clever, occasionally creepy, and sometimes poignant—there's plenty of life in this Corpse Bride.

So, I hied myself on over to Steven Greydanus' Decent Films Guide to see what he thought. Again 3 1/2 stars out of four, a "B" recommendation. Teens and up, some questionable moral content. Better than I had anticipated. I think it's on my list of "like to sees"!


I've had so many friends tell me they can't wait to see this movie. They tell me if I loved "The Nightmare Before Christmas", then I will love this one. Well, I didn't see Nightmare either, but I have to admit that they've got me interested.
