Edward Scissorhands

Description

Edward Scissorhands is a 1990 American romantic dark fantasy film directed by Tim Burton. The film stars Johnny Depp as Edward, a gentle and kind-hearted man with scissors for hands who is taken in by a suburban family after being discovered living alone in a Gothic castle. The film follows Edward as he attempts to adapt to his new surroundings and form relationships with the people around him.

The film explores the themes of isolation, conformity, and acceptance. Edward is an outsider who struggles to fit in with the conformist suburban community that he finds himself in. His unconventional appearance and abilities make him a subject of curiosity and fascination, but also fear and mistrust. The film also touches on the issue of societal norms and the pressures to conform to them, as well as the importance of accepting and embracing differences in others.

Overall, Edward Scissorhands is a visually stunning and emotionally powerful film that has become a classic of the fantasy genre. The film's themes of acceptance and individuality are still relevant today, making it a timeless work of art. Depp delivers a standout performance as Edward, and the supporting cast, including Winona Ryder and Dianne Wiest, add depth and nuance to the film. The film's Gothic aesthetic and haunting score by Danny Elfman add to its beauty and atmosphere, making it a must-see for fans of Burton's work and lovers of fantasy and romance alike.

Undoubtfully, cinematography has been my passion since a very young age. Even now, watching a new movie or series always prompts me to ask a lot of questions to the author. Thus, every little essay about a title is definitely not a spoiler, but rather an attempt to explore the idea.

It's a third appearance of Chris Hemsworth as mighty Thor after Kenneth Branagh's Thor filmed in 2011 and Joss Whedon's The Avengers filmed in 2012. The story of Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World is a direct sequel of the first movie and it takes place just year after the events of The Avengers. Now Thor stands against the ancient evil embodied in Malekith and his henchmen. This concentrated evil existed even before the history of our Galaxy has began. And there are no forces neither in Asgard nor on Earth to withstand them. Once again the destiny of the whole world is in Thor's hands. Once again he has to come back to Earth and fight with Malekith. When he meets his passion, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), his quest becomes more complicated – to rescue his love interest and save both Earth and Asgard. As for ensemble cast it's quite clear that previous movies successes inspired producers to inflate the budget significantly, besides the actors which were starring in the first movie Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins there some new Hollywood stars: Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who, Heroes, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Thing, Killer Elite, Faster), Zachary Levi (Stuntmen, Shades of Ray), and Tadanobu Asano (Battleship, 47 Ronin).
