Movie Reviews:

  • JPV852: First time seeing this since probably 2003 in theaters and it’s absolutely heartfelt and charming, probably one of Tim Burton’s best films, or at least one of my personal favorites of his. Great performances all around but especially Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney. Really well done. **4.5/5**
