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.

I am not complete

Tim Burton's richly entertaining update of the Frankenstein story is one of the most romantic and haunting film's in the past twenty years.

Burton has fun showing Edward's struggles to get dressed, use silverware and sleep in a water bed without wreaking havoc. Not only that, but Edward eradicates the blandness of the suburbs of where he lives by sculpting the town's hedges into exotic topiaries of animals and people. He gives elaborate haircuts to the neighborhood dogs and then moves on to their owners. Edward is a sensation, and what a terrific performance by Johnny Depp.

As in Burton's other films, the outsider soon becomes the outcast, and the laughs are soon tinged with melancholy. Burton shows how the townspeople's curiosity about Edward turns to suspicion and hostility Edwar...

"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 ...
