Dark Shadows marks the eighth movie that director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp have made together and it’s not very good. I know blunt right, but it isn’t. The film is an adaptation of “Dark Shadows,” the 1966 cult supernatural TV show. It starts off good but just ends in a giant mess.
Let’s all be honest Tim Burton hasn’t made a great film in years. Somewhere along the way he forgot what made his classic films, like The Nightmare before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands, so great. That all changes with Frankenweenie. A film that will remind you, why you loved all those old Tim Burton films. He was always able to combine the weird with genuine heart. Films like Frankenweenie are rare these days, with Hollywood more concerned about shoving 3D, explosions and visual effects down our throats. Frankenweenie may use 3D but it has more than enough heart to make up for that mistake. Lets face it what movie doesn’t come in 3D now days.
