Of course we all had high hopes for Corpse Bride, I mean, Tim burton? Johnny Depp? Danny Elfman? Claymation? How could we not have high hopes? I wasn't exactly dissapointed but I also wasn't on the edge of my seat with excitement. The voice acting was slightly above average, the songs were rather blah and felt forced, the animation was flawless, and the plot was, as mentioned, kind of predictable. I still highly recomend seeing for everyone, just perhaps only once.
