Edward ScissorHands is about a man that has scissors for hands tries to fit into a rich suburban neighborhood. The score in this movie is so beautiful and heartwarming, the way the movie looks is magically and looks like some out of a fair tale.

Burton crafts one of his most emotional works - a tragic story of love and acceptance that is sprawled across his signature visual landscape. The acting and storytelling are top-notch and the visuals are some of Burton's finest.

Is there any movie with Depp that does not attract? Edward is interesting because of his silence and droopy eyes.... Great art.

"Edward Scissorhands" by Yojimbo

An Avon lady finds the unfinished work of an elderly inventor living alone in a deserted mansion and decides to take him in and teach him to "fit in". Edward Scissorhands was the film that saw Tim Burton perfect his trademark style, producing a sweet natured suburban fairytale that's a kind of gothic cross between Pinoccio and Frankenstein. Johnny Depp plays the innocent outsider in this representation of middle America that's all housecoats, barbecues and topiary decorated in a mish mash of kitsch retro styles and shot like a 50s knitting pattern catalogue. There is the usual assortment of familiar grotesques as Burton goes out of his way to show the absurdity of accepted "normality" and there are shades of The Idiot as poor naive Depp is used and then vilified by his hypocritical new fr...

Stunning Tim Burton Masterpiece.

This film just leaves me breathless every time I watch it. It's visually stunning, Tim Burton merges beauty and hideousness to create one of the most incredible films visually. The Suburbia is neat and tidy looking, but is actually quite ugly when you look at it, whereas Edward and the castle on the hill at first glance looks dark and horrific, but Burton has captured so much beauty in something you would not expect to find it.

Besides being beautiful to look at, the story is so heartbreaking and wonderful; it's telling the popular story of an outcast in a truly unique way. Edward, looking something out of a horror film is actually the most gentle and sweet creature, whereas the majority of the 'normal' suburbanites are the monsters.

Johnny Depp is on top form as Edward and conveys ...

Review - Edward Scissorhands (1990)

Edward (Johnny Depp) was a machine of a man, but also the gentlest soul in the world. His lonely life is turned upside down when he is brought to the real world in “Edward Scissorhands.”

Who knew that such a bizarre idea could end up being such a masterpiece? I don’t think I really appreciated this film until I listened to its commentary and realized through director Tim Burton’s own words just how beautiful the story is.

Of course, the film has Burton’s usual style, used to its fullest here more than ever. He has an unbelievably unique style, and it really works for this story. He created his own modern day fairy tale and made it work.

The acting, the music, the costumes, the make-up, the sets, everything in “Edward Scissorhands” is beautifully done. If you’re looking for the pe...
