Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice is one of Tim Burton’s all time best movies. Every kind of Tim Burton style Gothic creativity is on display. Interestingly enough, I didn’t watch Beetlejuice in the traditional way. When I was younger I didn’t care if I missed the first 10 or 15 minutes of a movie. So I actually didn’t see the first 20 minutes of Beetlejuice for the longest time when I was younger. Which is at about the time Beetlejuice shows up in the movie. Anyway about the story, it’s about a married couple who die and become ghosts and try to remove the new residence of the their house using a bio exorcist named Beetlejuice. The movie benefits strongly from Michael Keaton’s performance as the titular character. Which is equal parts funny, creepy, and quotable. Of course being a Tim Burton movie, he makes great use of makeup and claymation. Which is never too creepy for younger audiences. There are just too many good things I could say about Beetlejuice. Just don’t say it three times.
