Sparky is not amused by Ravenfire5 Sparky is not amused by Ravenfire5
so thanks to the premiere of frankenweenie being slammed right next to the premiere of hotel Transylvania, despite all its advertising, it fell short at the box office which I thought was a shame because I thought frankenweenie was the better movie. I have seen both movies by now and I'm not saying hotel transylvania is a bad movie, it is a decent animated film with good humor and good characters, but I liked frankenweenie more because it seemed more heart and care was put into it while hotel transylvania felt like just a commercial movie made for young kids and to promote the halloween holiday. so yeah, while HT may the better for young kids, if you really want to see a well made film with a touching story, go see frankenweenie.

I think might be angry because HT stole the box office from Frankenweenie

I agree wholeheartedly.  Frankenweenie was an excellent film with a lot of heart.  Hotel Transylvania was cute, but undermined by too many subplots and supporting characters that drew too much attention away from the main story.

Yes, I do agree with you however. Even though I enjoyed Hotel Transylvania, I do prefer Frankenweenie.

it's was for kids because it's an animated movie and the way thestyle of the characters are, but it had a lot of adult humor in it, which i think was there so adult would not be bored watching it.

"Frankenweenie" was sooooo good! I just came out of the theater, I REALLY enjoyed it, super funny and I loved getting that classic Tim Burton feeling again!
Oh, and the song at the end, one of the BEST end credit songs I've ever heard in any movie!

BTW, this photo ROCKS! :D

Oh, and Sparky is sooooo cute!!!
I also loved the science teacher, he stole the show in every scene he was in. I for one, am a HUGE fan of 30s-40s horror films, so I got almost all the references and they all were funny.
Although, I didn't see it in 3D, not just because of the extra money, but I don't know if I ever told you this, but I have had lots of surgery on my left eye, and I'm able to see normally out of it, but my peripheral vision is a bit off, and the 3D effect doesn't work for me, but that didn't matter, it's still a fun movie. :)

lol yeah, sparky was really cute!
yeah i liked the science teacher too, he had a great voice, i liked the scene where he talked about a person being struck my lighting and made it sound cool.
really? i didn't know that, well, i didn't see in 3d either so i can't tell if it was worth seeing in 3d or not, i heard some say it wasn't, but that os okay, i didn't need the 3d effect to enjoy the movie.

Yes, the lightning speech had me cracking up! XD

Yup, have had the eye problem since I was born, but it doesn't affect my life really, and I don't think a surgery is worth it, since it'll put me under unnecessary stress, so I just live with it. :)

My dad LOVES 3D movies, but I tell him, for me, it's just watching a movie with a pair of sunglasses on! XD I go with him cause I love hanging out with him though. :)

well, if it was really going to effect your vision badly in the long run, i figure is to best do it and get it over with.

it usually depends on the movie for me, some movies are cool in 3D, like i saw avatar and how to train your dragon in 3D and that was cool, but some other movies i really don't need to see in 3D because i see why buy extra money just have things pop out more the screen.

I would get the surgery, but even my eye doctor says it's unnecessary, so I'll leave it. :)

You know what 3D movie I saw today? "Silent Hill: Revelation."
Now, that's a movie that, even IF I could 'enjoy' the 3D effect, it didn't need to be in 3D. It was pretty well done, AND the FIRST "Silent Hill" was NOT in 3D, so I don't think the sequel needed to be....the only reason why I saw the second one in 3D, was because I'm a sucker for anything "Silent Hill"! :D

yeah, i think mostly the 3D thing in movies is mostly just a gimmick to raise tickets sales, here are really some movies that don't need to be in 3D.

I think the reason Frankenweenie wasnt so big Box office-wise is because people are starting to loose faith in Tim Burton, what with Alice and Wonderland & Dark Shadows not being his best of films and all.

:iconravenfire5:
Ravenfire5 Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, that could so very true, even i was starting to give up on tim burton films because all his recent live action movies have been moderate at best, but once i heard about this movie, that he was going back to stop motion and remaking one of his old classics, my faith was restored because there is no way he could screw that up.
