Reminds me why some love cinema.

Possible Spoilers

I know what it's like to be told what you're doing is absurd, but when you're doing what you love, you can't be reasoned with. And no matter what anyone tells you, you will still continue your attempts at what you love. Ed Wood is a perfect example. On the outside, he was a person who made bad movies. On the inside, he was a person mad with finishing every film project he started. Not for the money. Not for the fame. For him, for doing what he loved and for achieving something, his idol being Orson Welles.
I consider this to be Johnny Depp's best performance by far and Tim Burton's best film by far.
It may not be entirely historically accurate, but if you look at it strictly as a study of Ed Wood's unconquerable ambition, it succeeds.
With many close-ups of Depp's ...

Ed Wood review

"This business, this town, it chews you up, then spits you out." Second viewing of this film makes this rater believe it is truly one of Burton's best and a very good Hollywood related film. The movie about a horrendous director who is a transvestite named Ed Wood (Johnny Depp). He befriends actor Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau) and creates films with a bunch of misfit crew. Screenplay was superb with lines from Criswell "Eddie, we're in show biz. It's all about razzle-dazzle. Appearances. If you look good, and you talk well, people will swallow anything," Orson Welles "Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?" and Ed "This is the one. 'This' is the one I'll be remembered for." The soundtrack and performances (especially Landau and Depp) were wond...

"Ed Wood" by Yojimbo

Tim Burton was the perfect choice to create this biopic of the undisputed worst ever movie director, Edward Wood Jr., and his affection for and admiration for the man shine through. He is not portrayed as a boob or incompetent, but an ever enthusiastic and infectious amateur who would make any compromise or suffer any indignity just to make his dream of making movies come true. There's a lot of humour to be found in the story with many laugh out loud moments, mostly involving the brilliant Martin Landau who portrays screen legend Bela Lugosi as a kind of foul-mouthed Norma Desmond with a sense of humour. The cast are all wonderful in fact, making a kind of Addams family of misfits and it's very difficult not to warm to them in their struggle to attain the American dream. This heart warmin...

Tim Burton's best film is also his most underrated

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors of all time. And Johnny Depp happens to be one of my favorite actors of all time. Put these two together and what do you get(aside from creepy remakes like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland)? You get Ed Wood. Ed Wood is Tim Burton's masterpiece and one of my favorite movies of all time. Though it was a box office flop when it was first released, it's garnered much critical praise and numerous awards including an oscar winning performance by Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi.

The movie is a biopic that tells the story of Edward D. Wood Jr. Ed is a filmmaker who despite his passion and love for the art of filmmaking, keeps making shitty movie after shitty movie. The film traces his friendship with Bela Lugosi, his love intere...
