Movie Review: This animated black and white film from renowned Director Tim Burton reminds the viewer of his recent films such as Corpse Bride which feature death as a central theme.  This story about a boy and his dog is wonderfully told, with a lot of comedic points from secondary characters and a touching story with the main characters.  The animation is top notch and makes for a very enjoyable film.  One downside was that some serious life lessons were pointed out towards the end of the film, however the ending was a little bit sugar-coated, as opposed to keeping it more poignant for viewers.  But that aside, this was a fun movie to watch, and another Tim Burton success.

Overall Review: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
