Corpse Bride

Corpse BrideThis episode was way easy to edit.   I think Melanie and I leveled up our talking skills.

The Corpse Bride is a 2005 film directed by Tim Burton and Mike Johnson.   The film is set in Victorian era England where the son of a rich fish monger, Victor, is to be engaged to the daughter of an ‘old money’ couple named Victoria.   The match is a business arrangement.   Love isn’t even a factor.   However, when the two young people  meet they hit it off right away.   Unfortunately, Victor is so nervous he screws up the wedding reception and after a stroke of bad luck, accidentally marries a dead  woman named Emily.

This is a great stop motion film that’s surprisingly touching and romantic despite its horror appearance.   The Corpse Bride seems like she’d be a horror from the underworld who rises from the dead to exact revenge upon the living, but she’s actually a sweet tragic heroine who you really feel for even if she’s scary looking.

We tried to do a little more research for this review than normal, and hopefully it shows.
