Episode 66: Frankenweenie
On this week's all-new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, something truly frightening happened. Oh, sure, we talked about Tim Burton's newest film, the stop-motion-animated, black-and-white, 3D expansion of his short film Frankenweenie. And sure, we welcomed onto the show a very special guest to review the film: Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly. But discussing this scary kids' movie was nothing compared to finding out what it sounds like when Josh likes something, and both Mike and Gabe do not. Yes, friends, if you thought it was crazy enough to hear Mike get critical, just wait until you hear he and Gabe face off against Josh and Anthony. Is Frankenweenie a sweet, charming piece of nostalgia, or is it a lazy and soulless attempt from Tim Burton to recapture his youth? You'll have to listen to the show to find out the verdict!
