corpse brides and were rabbits – the films of october

As Jeff notes, he and I have been pretty lucky at scoring free passes to movie screenings through various sources–Metro Weekly, [The Washington Post] Express, ytic, and others. Two weeks ago we saw Just Like Heaven, and last week Jeff went to see Proof (we’d both separately won two tickets to the latter, but I ended up not really wanting to see it that night). For this evening we were both entered for tickets to the new Tim Burton film, The Corpse Bride, in the same style as The Nightmare Before Christmas and with the voice talent of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Emily Watson), and to the new Wallace and Gromit film, Curse of the Were Rabbit. This morning I was notified that I’d I won two passes to the former, so we’re meeting at the Cineplex Odeon Wisconsin Avenue for a 7:30 showing.
