    Babe (1995)

    Rated G, 92 min. Directed by Chris Noonan. Starring James Cromwell and Magda Szubanski.

    Kids' Camp: Perhaps one of the cutest children's films ever made, this tale of the young piglet who decides his calling in life is to be a sheepdog is also a rousing comedy, appropriately filled with a variety of subtle messages, from self-empowerment to the importance of treating others as equals, even though they may be, ah, sheep. Babe looks and flows wonderfully. It's a clever, witty, touching piece of work that, coincidentally, is a decidedly excellent date movie. Really. Read a full review of Babe.

  • Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

    Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (2005)

    Rated PG, 76 min. Directed by Mike Johnson and Tim Burton.

    Kids' Camp: The dead have more fun than the living, again, in Burton’s new stop-motion animated feature, a gift to gothlings everywhere. It’s also arguably Burton’s most self-assured turn behind the camera in ages, and coupled with Mike Johnson’s seamless animation it makes for a splendid All Hallows treat. As in the director’s previous animated outing, the now-classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, this is a musical romantic comedy with dead things, and while Danny Elfman’s jaunty tunes fail to engage as memorably as in that film, John August, Pamela Pettler, and Caroline Thompson’s script is pure Burton, marrying (literally, in this case) the worlds of the dead and the might-as-well-be-dead to a Hammeresque tale of love, murder, and the redemptive power of, um, death. But the true stars are the cinematography by Pete Kozachik and the art direction by Nelson Lowry, which give Burton and Johnson’s film a magnificent polish, making it eye candy of the highest order. Read a full review of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.
