After just meeting each other for the first time, Victor (Depp) and Victoria (Watson) are scheduled to be married the next day. But Victor is a little nervous about the whole situation and goes for a walk in the woods. While practicing his vows, he places the wedding ring on an old tree branch—he thinks—but instead it turns out to be the skeletal finger of the "Corpse Bride" (Bonham Carter), who immediately accepts Victor's proposal of marriage. After the new missus drags Victor to the very strange Land of the Dead, he realizes that he has come to love his intented bride, Victoria. But his dead wife isn't too happy about Victor's love for the living and wonders what she can do to make Victor truly hers. Set in the same style as another Tim Burton film, "The Nightmare Before Christmas," this movie is sure to delight those of all ages. (Tricia Spears)
From the pop-up menu, the features are exactly the same as on the DVD and include the following featurettes: Inside The Two Worlds (four minutes), Danny Elfman Interprets The Two Worlds (five minutes), The Animators: The Breath Of Life (seven minutes), Tim Burton Dark vs. Light (four minutes), Voices From The Underworld (six minutes), Making Puppets Tick (seven minutes), and The Voices Behind The Voice (eight minutes). There is also a 13-minute preproduction gallery featuring each of the different characters in the film, the option of watching the movie with the music-only track, and the theatrical trailer.
The VC-1-encoded 1.78:1 Blu-ray Disc looks fantastic, with incredible detail and depth. The image really looks three-dimensional, not only popping out of the screen but also reaching deep into the screen plane. (Danny Richelieu)
While the Dolby® Digital Surround EX™ 5.1-channel soundtrack does sound very good, even slightly better than that which was included with the DVD (with its increased bit rate), it does not have the level of fidelity that can be provided by an uncompressed PCM soundtrack or a next-generation lossless or lossy audio codec.
