Tim Burton is at it again with his second big screen project of 2005 - The Corpse Bride. Find out if The Corpse Bride is worth checking out or if Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was Tim's only success in '05.

Corpse Bride - 'Til Death Do Us Part

Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot are complete strangers, but their parents have arranged for the pair to be married. Each set of parents are more interested in the combined wealth of the two families, instead of how their children feel about the whole situation. Turns out that Victor and Victoria really hit it off - but Victor is so nervous that he kind of falls apart at the seams during the wedding rehearsal. He takes a walk to clear his head and while practicing his vows, Victor accidentally weds a corpse!

Corpse Bride - To Die For

If you're a fan of Tim Burton's work, you'll definitely love Corpse Bride. It takes a real storyteller to blend both spooky and romantic elements into a very enjoyable tale. When Victor finds out that he's married a dead girl, his first reaction is of course to get back to the land of the living and his soon-to-be bride. But, things don't exactly go according to plan and he begins to find out more about Emily, his corpse bride. Throughout the movie there are great musical numbers - some of the best taking place in the land of the dead. Who can resist a lively bunch of singing, dancing skeletons?

Corpse Bride - Spooky Storytelling

If you're looking for a flick to take the younger siblings to, Corpse Bride isn't it. While the flick is a lot of fun, there are definitely parts that might frighten younger kids. There's not a lot to complain about with this movie - other than it could have been a bit longer!

Corpse Bride - DVD Features

Take a tour of the underworld with the Corpse Bride DVD. This disc is packed with cool featurettes that give you the break down on how a film like this is brought to life - the voice actors behind the characters, the puppetry and much more. You'll also be able to flip through tons of still pictures from the set.

Corpse Bride - Bottom Line

Corpse Bride is the perfect flick to check out before Halloween. It's not a scare-the-pants-off-you kind of film, but it definitely has the ghostly, spooky thing going for it. The animation is awesome and the story is fun and original. What more could you ask for during the dreary fall months?

Yeah, I especially hate the unnecessary undergarment shots; those are the worst.

It would probably have to be almost every single Disney show I've ever seen or anime that contains fanservice.
