Edward Scissorhands

“You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren’t up there now… I don’t think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it,” Kim said.

This dark fantasy comedy is one of Tim Burton’s masterpieces.

Here is the basic plot…A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being — the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, though, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg’s teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward’s hands make him an outcast.

I don’t have much to say regarding the movie, besides the fact that Vincent Price had an appearance. He’s so cool in his creepy way.

“I’m everyone – and no one. Everywhere – nowhere. Call me… Darkman,” Darkman said.

An odd superhero movie about a Man who can change his face and become different people. The movie spawned two other sequels that weren’t nearly as good as the original.

Liam Neison is the Anti Hero Darkman in the film.

Here is the basic plot…When thugs employed by a crime boss lead a vicious assault on Dr. Peyton Wilder (Liam Neeson), leaving him literally and psychologically scarred, an emergency procedure allows him to survive. Upon his recovery, Wilder can find solace only by returning to his scientific work developing synthetic skin, and seeking revenge against the crime boss. He assumes a phantom avenger persona called Darkman, who, with malleable facial qualities, is able to infiltrate and sow terror in the criminal community.

Having the film be directed by Sam Rami, it shows us that Sam had a dark sense about him. He had directed The Evil Dead, the Spiderman trilogy and other films.

The soundtrack was composed by Danny Elfman, who had composed so many films, its hard to name all of them.

Back to the Future III


, , , , , , , ,


Doc: Reach!

Engineer: Is this a holdup?

Doc: It’s a science experiment! Stop the train just before you hit the switch track up ahead!

The third installment of the Back To the Future franchise takes us into the old west, where we find Doc Brown at it again, facing off with the likes of Buford “Mad Dog” Tannon. We get adventure, romance, science fiction and fantasy all rolled into one movie!

This movie is great and so is the music! Alan Silvestri once again came back to do the music for this film.

The movie was directed by Robert Zemeckis and it really does take us on a journey.

Here is the basic plot…In this final chapter, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) obtains a 70-year-old message from the time-traveling Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd), in which he informs Marty that he has retired to a small town in the Old West. Marty then finds out that the Doc was murdered shortly after sending the letter. In order to save his friend, Marty will have to travel back in time, disentangle a lovestruck Doc from a local schoolmarm, and repair the DeLorean — all while avoiding a posse of gunslingers.

Some of the actors in the film are Mary Steenburgen, Thomas F. Wilson, Lea Thompson, Matt Clark, Pat Buttram, Dub Taylor, and James Tolkan.
