Last month I started writing reviews for my hometown paper, the Augusta Gazette. The local theatre plays a different first-run movie almost every week, and I'll be reviewing each of those. This week's feature presentation: Tim Burton's Frankenweenie. It was originally a 30-minute short, starring Barret Oliver from The Neverending Story and directed by Burton the year before he made his feature directorial debut, Pee-wee's Big Adventure (one of my all-time favorites). I highly recommend you check out the short, which is included as a special feature on the 2010 blu-ray of The Nightmare Before Christmas. The new Frankenweenie is in some ways an improvement, which I discuss in my review for the Gazette. You can read it by clicking here. Below you can listen to the rather delightful song that plays over the end credits.
