Edward Scissorhands (1990)


Johnny Depp
Winona Ryder
Dianne Wiest

Directed by Tim Burton

Edward Scissorhands is the name of the movie and watching the movie 25 years after it was made was just enlightening. Based on a story by Tim Burton, this film has been rated by him and Danny Elfman (who composed the score) as their most favorite work.

The movie was a huge success and it was Burton's next movie release after the success of Batman (1989). The movie was well received by critics and was even nominated for an Academy Award.

Edward Scissorhands was the first movie collaboration between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton and together they have made eight films till date.

And Depps Character was an unfinished science project started by a scientist who created Edward in a gothic way, who stayed years alone in castle until a woman found him and brought him home to live with her.
A man with scissors for hands, he was an attraction to see and a wonder to behold and soon Edward was popular and was on the news. Things would have gone fine for Edward if he hadn’t fallen for Kim Boggs (Winona Ryder), but just as much a woman has to come in and mar the moment.

Edward got missed up with the wrong crowd, and got into trouble which ended up being the end of the fairy tale of the man with scissors hands.

Depps acting in this movie was magnificent, he used this movie to break away from his teen idol status, which he had working on 21 Jump Street. Others like Winona Ryder and Dianne Wiest role maybe forgettable, but Deep’s wouldn’t.

This movie is catchy, watching it now I was taken back by the many lack of sense in the Edward character, but the moment I was able to suspend my reasoning and just accept this movie as it is, a movie, I began to love it.

The movie ending is one for tears, and although our protagonist lives on, this movie still ended on a sad note, showing that in this world there are many who will give anything just to be part of it. The world or we are too busy focusing on ourselves and trying to get the things we want from others to even notice that others too have something they wish they too can unburden.

Here is a movie classic, one that you as a movie watcher and lover must see, so go see it.
