  • Staying alive – Dark Shadows Review

    Dark Shadows is Tim Burton‘s best film in a decade. You’d have to go all the way back to Big Fish, or perhaps even 1999’s Sleepy Hollow to find anything comparable in quality. That might be damning...

  • Perfect movie to watch after a crappy day: great actors, music and cinematography. Get nostalgic with 60's tunes from Iggy pop, The Carpenters, Donovan, Curtis Mayfield and many more including an Alice Cooper cameo.

  • Great fun. Johnny Depp is his usual weird self & it was a hoot to see the ditzy characters played by the talented Michelle Pfeiffer (always a favourite, though usually in serious roles) & Helena Bonham Carter as a pill popping alcoholic shrink! Enjoy it for what it is - it doesn't try to be high art.

  • I'm not interested in over-analysing this one. Let me simply say the family really enjoyed it.

  • Pretty lame. Can't believe I'm saying this about a Johnny Depp film, but I wasn't a fan :(

  • This was disappointing. Such a waste of a great cast. Tim Burton's film are usually so stylishly put together ... what a shame! It was tedious and predictable. Any joy or spark was lost through overworking every aspect.
