NO thanks, this movie was awful. It is the second worst Burton movie ever (Apes is first) and I swear that Depp was filming an entirely different movie from the rest of the cast and they just photoshopped him into the movie itself.

I liked this movie quite a bit. The tone reminded me of the 90s Addams Family movies I loved when I was a kid.

Blind buy for me. I'm a big Burton fan. Just in time for my birthday. Like the cover.

This movie was... I don't know. It wasn't as atrocious as I thought it was going to be, but it was still pretty bad. Parts of it are fairly solid--almost like old Burton; dark, gothic, with a hint of dry comedy--but so much of it just didn't work. Mostly because it's an absolute waste of a wonderful cast.

The sequel-bait at the end was barftastic, though. With the B.O. it did in the states, I doubt said sequel will happen. Which is probably for the best.

I am a huge Burton fan as well, but this movie was awful. Trust me, you will be happy you avoided it.

Eh, we get the best Burton/Depp flick a couple weeks before this in Ed Wood. Just buy that one instead.

I will probably end up blind buying Dark Shadows too since my daughter loves Depp and Burton. And it has a superb cast.
