Frankenweenie (U.S., 2012) directed by Tim Burton,
In a classic late-18th-century experiment, the Italian physiologist Luigi Galvani hung dead frogs from his balcony during a thunderstorm. The animals were impaled on metal hooks intended to attract an electric charge as the storm flashed its way across town. In response to a lightning strike or a boom of thunder, 'their legs twitched in a way that made them seem as if they were ready to hop off the balcony and into the streets below.'
I won't say I wasn't taken with the irrepressible joy of Victor and Sparky but you do wish that Burton might perk up at times and that not every story should have such a bleak perspective on human nature.
