Edward Scissorhands Reviews
The story is sweet and sad. And the irony in the movie is beautiful. Edward looks evil but has a sweet and pure heart. The town and townspeople look sweet and innocent, but are evil.
There were some parts of the movie that I had to trudge through, but overall it was an enjoyable movie.
the film is full of wondrous music, bright, vivid colors and a sweet, gothic tone
unlike 'Batman' or 'Beetlejuice' Tim Burton treats this main character as an innocent pilgrim coming into a world he never knew about beyond his own backyard, he looks scary but has a big heart
the greatest thing about him are his unusually razor-sharp hands yet they're also his biggest obstacle when it comes to blending in with the rest of the neighbors
of course at one point someone says if he didn't have this unique quality about him he wouldn't be special anymore which is a great thing to embrace
Winona Ryder as his love interest, Kim begins to see the kind innocence he holds deep inside
it's everyone else that has a hard time accepting someone new like Edward from the nosy neighbors to Kim's jerk boyfriend
I love Depp and Ryder so much
the movie actually grew on me as it further developed because it felt like a modern Frankenstein tale, if the wrong buttons are pushed then the potential happiness can easily crumble
a great flick that remains a piece of movie magic
