Corpse Bride, a co-production between Tim Burton Productions and Laika, is a genuinely heart-warming, beautifully made gothic fairy tale based on Jewish-Russian folk tales. It has a great cast and stunning visuals, but honestly despite seeing it several years ago, I could not remember a thing about it. Watching it again for this podcast was like watching it for the very first time.

And therein lies the problem with Corpse Bride; it's overshadowing by the other Tim Burton heart-warming , beautifully made gothic fairy tale: The Nightmare Before Christmas. They even share a Danny Elfman soundtrack!

But, Corpse Bride deserves recognition. It's revolutionary puppet work and digital filming techniques make it stand out. It's a classic love triangle where true love never dies, and ultimately if you love someone you should set them free. While The Nightmare Before Christmas will come to this podcast eventually, Corpse Bride comes first because it deserves more love than it gets.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Corpse Bride!
