Frankenweenie

(PG) ★★★☆☆

Tim Burton is back with this black-and-white 3-D stop motion animation picture, a remake of a short live action movie he made in 1984 in which he remakes the Frankenstein myth with a dog. Young Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan) and his beloved terrier, Sparky, conduct a fantastic science experiment after Sparky’s demise. It works. Though typically Burton, it’s not his best, with a jaded and uneasy air, and plenty of cutely vicious monsters and a protracted climax. It’s visual, but sometimes even well-applied jumper cables can’t help.

Frankie Beverly and Maze

By Brjden Crewe

Fresh off receiving BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Frankie Beverly and Maze will bring a catalog of hits to LVH ($75 -$119) at 9 p.m. Oct. 12-13. Having formed in the early ’70s, the band was chosen by Marvin Gaye to tour with him. They signed a major deal in 1976, and released a stream of hit records and eight gold albums. With their brand of funk, soul and R&B, Frankie Beverly and Maze put on the kind of show that gives everyone the opportunity to sing along.
