10. Corpse Bride (2005)
Nearly a Tim Burton movie for the sake of being a Tim Burton movie, Corpse Bride
- his first fully-animated stop-motion feature - straddles the line between genuinely entertaining and been-there-done-that, though ultimately there's enough charm and several likeable characters to make the trip worthwhile. And there's probably no denying the energy that spurs from the picture on several occassions, presumably derived from Burton's giddy excitement surround his source material (that is, his own ideas). Still, there's no escaping the lingering feeling that we've seen it all before - Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Danny Elfman score, skeletons doing amusing things. So much so, in fact, that even a Burton die-hard might feel we're treading on seriously worn ground. If that's not the sort of thing that bugs you, though, then Corpse Bride
is far from bad - it's just somewhat resembling of a greatest hits compilation.
