“Death is only the beginning.”
2021! A new year! The future! Anyways I’d like to use the moderate popularity of this review which has plagued me for nearly four years to make a public plea to Letterboxd to please add a private account option, it well do everyone (me) a whole lot of good by giving many people (me) a privacy option they’ve (me) long desired.
loathe to give any stop-motion a negative review - especially selick’s first film since one of my favorites - because they’re all nothing short of miracles but hoo boy this thing just doesn’t work - a painfully jumbled mess of half-baked ideas and characters, some of which flicker with brief moments of spirited inspiration that hint at what a more focused (and much, much shorter) version of this could be, but most of which fall flat on their face before they can even attempt to get off the ground
