I bought this movies several years ago. I loaned to a friend and never received it back. I am so happy to have it in my movie library once again. It is such a sweet movie about the magic of imagination, caring for a child in need, giving of yourself to others, helping out a true friend and loving others children as your very own. This is one of my favorite movies. I highly suggest to anyone to watch this wonderful movie! It is a great price too!
Visually, Burton is at his most Edward Gorey-esque in the austere, storybook Victorian land of the living, whilst his contrasting comic underworld summons the spirit of Poe, the personality of Harryhausen and the ephemera of his own back catalogue.
the movie when played displayed many sections that froze. then in 30 sec. would play! this happened over and over again and again! I liked the movie for I saw it on tv and wanted to buy it! respectfully,boysiediamond
