Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Creature with a grand imagination, magnificent capabilities and childlike inspired nobility is plucked out of isolation so he can partake of suburbia after his inventor dies. Depp's Edward is everything you don't expect. He is joyous and wondrous, living things he always envisioned but never realized and tempted by the evil that is a suburban housewife. Suburbia is welcoming, at first. Kathy Baker is splendiferous as a woman too hot to trot with. Michael Anthony Hall played himself marvelously. Dianne Wiest is a beautiful heart murmur. Alan Arkin schlepped. Vincent Price is a well deserved gay horror queen. Suburbia is where Karens are born, the religious take flight and nature goes to shit. Edward unites the community, becomes a hero but is deflated by a bully. A misconstrued wrongdoing leads to cancellation. He's no longer adorable but Frankenstein. There are plot holes. He eats which means he poops. How does he clean his butt? How does he pee? A hole in a water mattress makes the entire bed drain. Putting a teddy on it doesn't stop it from leaking. If Edward eats food is it necessary for his survival? Does the town receive free giant blocks of ice during the holidays? The inventor created a boy but had difficulty with hands? It doesn't matter. The music is magical, Wynona Ryder did the best by doing the least and Tim Burton is a master of creativity. He creates a place I want to live in, minus the people. I am Edward Scissorhands. 24-Aug-2021
Swiss Family Robinson (1960)
Swiss family travel the high seas to claim new land and eco-trash it. Pirates attack their ship as they sleep, all the passengers jump to safety and nobody bothers to awaken them. Were they not liked? They were probably snooty. TG they left an animal farm, nails and enough ammo to kill an army. Shipwrecked. The Ewoks would have barked at the unrealism of the family tree palace but it's fun Disney magic. As they settle into tranquility the parents ponder the future of their three sons. The boys would inherit nothing without women to love lest they do the animals or worst, each other. A trans boy makes it onto the island and Cain and Abel are awakened to some sexual clarity. It's preposterously gorgeous, impossible, animalistic, adventurous, violent and joyous. 28-Feb-2021
A grand illusion envisioned by perfectionists. Bergman contains her judgment and allows history to determine as Brynner showcases the array of his Jedi talent. The film commits to its deception. 24-Sep-2018
The macho pose may seem off date but who cares when the master has proliferated a grand illusion and Zoe Saldana is gut wrenched. 15-Sep-2018
It affirms its origin and endears us with embellishments. It debates life assumptions and Casper is illuminated with a thoughtful backstory. It's magic with gumption. 27-Aug-2018

Holds your breadth with magic. 11-May-2018
Secret World of Arrietty, The (2012)
You have delivered mastery in beauty when multiple viewings still nips your breath away. 25-Sep-2017
Wizard of Oz, The (1939)
Art is in the details and in 3D those details are lusciously evident. Imagination, music and talent is abundant. I would give it a full moon except there is quite much celebration over a child murderer. Dorothy enacts two homicides and is branded a hero when any other vigilante would be hunted down. She's also a thief. 24-Dec-2015
