    Symbolism In Corpse Bride

    • 919 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The movie Corpse Bride is a very charming yet macabre movie of how a shy, stumbling young man accidently marries a deceased bride. This movie is done by stop motion, yet is still very elegantly.

The Everglots, the supposed rich family in the town, has arranged to marry…

Both films are extremely fairytale-like, which…

    single film can cross over many genres and therefore cannot be put into a single category. For example Tim Burton’s movie Corpse Bride, released in 2005.

    that people tend to stick to status quo and try their best to be “normal” instead of being themselves. They treat this as an unsavory concept to our society. Tim Burton, however, takes an entirely different approach on his view of life and how we should live in it. Through the uses of color contrast and fantastical settings, he communicates the idea that this should be the status quo in our society.
