I was somehow completely able to disconnect myself from my love of the original movie and really, really enjoy this one.
I had no idea that Christopher Lee was in it. Rad.
Helena Bonham Carter is even gorgeous with bad teeth. Not surprising, since she was gorgeous as an ape.
The new Charlie is a million times better than that horrible soppy blond kid in the first movie.
No "Cheer Up, Charlie"! Hooray!
Violet's mother was SCARY. As was the psychotic version of Mike Teevee.
Danny Elfman has apparently not written new music since, well, a long, long time ago.
Regardless of the Danny Elfman problem, I'm really, really looking forward to The Corpse Bride.
