One of my favorite movies from 2012 — Frankenweenie — was released on DVD, blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray this week. You can read my full review here, and check out some fun clips below.

Oh, and by the way, it’s now an OSCAR-NOMINATED movie! See? I’ve been telling you guys it’s a great movie!

If you haven’t seen it yet, now’s a great time to grab this off the store or cyber-shelves. Directed by Tim Burton, it tells the story of a young boy who will do anything to bring his faithful canine friend back to life. Even if it means going against the laws of nature and resurrecting him using electricity. Props to Mary Shelley for the idea.
