Cute and feel-good, kids will love it, but that's it. I have never seen the original but I can't feel much of magic here and it's obviously not one of Tim Burton's memorable efforts.
Danny Elfman's score is really in his comfort zone, even more than Thomas Newman's TOLKIEN I have recently watched and listened to the album. It's high-budget and authentically his style, with a few sparks from EDWARD SCISSORHANDS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, but sadly lacks strong thematic material to engage and remember. Honestly, it's as auto-pilot as his recent scores for THE GRINCH and MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL, which are alright but still disappointing for me.
