Corpse Bride (1:17:00)


Most people know director Tim Burton for The Nightmare Before Christmas, but The Corpse Bride is just as quintessentially Burton: it has a great musical score, satirizes the rich, makes the dead funny and endearing, and pulls off a beautiful – and beautifully odd – love story. I dare you not to be enchanted.
