You may know if you read here regularly that I am NOT a movie person. I go to one or two every year or so and it has to be something MAJOR to get me to go. Well, yesterday I saw “Corpse Bride” because I love “Nightmare Before Christmas” and I wanted to see Tim Burton’s latest entry. It is no “Nightmare.”
When “Nightmare” came out, Greg tried valiantly to get me to go see it. It was a big departure at the time. I didn’t go, and after seeing it on video later – at his urging – have wanted to see it on the big screen. I love the Oogey Boogey Song and many of the characters. It was one of those cases where Greg was so right and I was so wrong.
So, when I learned about “Corpse Bride” I wasn’t going to miss out. It was OK, but nothing to get excited about. I didn’t leave humming any songs. A few hours later I couldn’t remember any particular scene from the movie. I don’t have a memory for such things, anyway, but generally it stays with me at least a few hours.
