Don’t Run With Scissors

Edward Scissorhands is Tim Burton’s best film and character. For a while I even considered it among my “Top 10 Favorite Movies.” Only because I saw it recently and remembered how much I loved ย it. Edward Scissorhands has Tim Burton written all over it. It’s darkly creative and stars an outcast. It’s also the movie that cemented Johnny Depp’s career of playing a weirdo in weird makeup. As well as the movie where former nerd Anthony Michael Hall changed his career. Edward Scissorhands is a dark fairytale about a man with scissors for hands. One of the residents of his towns discovers him and decides to take him into town. Edward is probably the most sympathetic character I’ve ever seen. He doesn’t say much, but I truly feel his pain. Luckily, there’s plenty of humor to balance things out, and a beautiful romance too. The ending is bittersweet, but understandable. Edward Scissorhands is my highest recommendation so far. Not just for goths.
