It’s funny the way we picture things in our minds. I had heard of ‘Edward Scissorhands’ but actually knew very little about it, typified by the fact I was expecting this to be very dark – probably just based on the seeing the cover here and there. It’s much sillier than expected, but in a positive way.
I do kinda end up wishing they went down a more dark/creative route, instead of relying on the novelty of having scissors as hands; though, to be fair, they do touch on the deeper side a bit. With that said, I did get a good amount of entertainment seeing this plot unfold. It’s weird and wonderful.
Johnny Depp is a great actor and is very good here, mainly via his facial expressions and body language. It’s cool to see Winona Ryder involved, someone I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in more recent times in ‘Stranger Things’. Alan Arkin and Anthony Michael Hall also appear.
The film looks neat, as I’ve come to expect from Tim Burton. It has the obvious touch of Bo Welch to it, with the neighbourhood looking not too dissimilar to what Welch would create for 2003’s ‘The Cat in the Hat’ – which I, truly, enjoyed.
Undoubtedly worth a watch.
Take the story of Frankenstein’s monster, remove the hateful creator, and replace the little girl’s flowers with a brightly pastel Reagan-era suburb. Though not my personal favorite Tim Burton film, I feel like this one best encapsulates his style and story interests.
If Tim Burton never did anything else, this film would be enough to call his life worthwhile
There is absolutely no way I can view this film in even a remotely objective manner, so I won’t even try. Like eveything I’ve seen by Tim Burton, this film is at one and the same time, warm and frightening, tender and heart-wrenchingly evil, uplifting and dark. The good and bad in humanity are shown in stark relief quite clearly for everyone to see. But in the final analysis, the most important message the film has to offer is this: Love truly does make the world go ’round and redemption and just living to see another day is a kind of victory. There will always be bullies, just as there will always be kind souls who actively try to make things better (and who sometimes make things worse through their efforts). The most important thing is to be true to yourself, treat others as you wish to be treated and that if the bad guys win, we all lose-including the bad guys. Excellent cast, fine script and just overall a worthy effort not to be missed. One of Vincent Price’s last performances, if not the last. I love this film! Most highly recommended.
Beautiful employment of color, sympathy and human nature
Tim Burton should have won an academy award for this film. It is truelly a masterpiece. Never have I felt more sympathetic for a character before in my life. Edward Scissorhands…a creation…an unfinished product made by an inventor, his father. When his “father” dies he is left alone in the mansion to fend for himself and discover things on his own without any guidance. Next an avon lady comes in and detaches him from his isolation and throws him into a society where everything is pastel, everything is precise and everyone is stiff. Edward Scissorhands gets thrown into a world comPLETELY unlike the one he was used to. Now he is the outsider.
Johnny Depp should have also won an Academy Award for his performance in this film. Although he had very few lines in this film, less than 100, his facial expressions and actions spoke loudly. Every detail he gave his character was so perfect and precise. When Edward examines the water bed, and takes his first sip of (what I’m guessing is) scotch, or in the beginning when he takes his first ride ever in a car into town. Just the look on his face when he finally gets to see what the outside world looks like was pure genius.
I hold this movie very deeply to my heart. In my opinion it encompasses every human emotion and nature. When Edward first arrives the locals accepted him and he became a famed hair/bush stylist. In the end they turn on him and see him for what he looks like, a monster. My rating for this film: 10/10
