Bml93's Film Diary for 2012 (272 movies items)

""A woman doctor... what an age this is." @ Cinema I always look forward to a Tim Burton film. Because I love all of his films (I don't count the ape-thingy), so I knew I were going to like this one as well. Burton, Johnny Depp and vampires. I thought I would most definitely be in for a treat. And I liked it. It may not be as good as some of his earlier works, but it is still a very entertaining film. I see some people have complained about the rhythm in it , that Burton doesn't manage to comb"

A good movie

“I didn't really know what to expect from this flick before watching it. I mean, I have never seen the TV show it is based on and, frankly, even though I have seen every single movie directed by Tim Burton, it has been a while that he did really blow me away. Furthermore, the (terribly misleading) trailer gave me the feeling that it would be a straight comedy reminiscent of 'The Addams Familly' which wasn't really promising either. Fortunately, it turned out to be pretty good. Indeed, it was visually truelly impressive, especially the introduction which was some kind of Gothic extravangaza, the tone was just perfect and the campy comedy was gone. Furthermore, I really enjoyed Johnny Depp who was just hilarious and it has been a while since he gave such a good performance. The rest of the ca” read more

Visually great but a corny & empty disappointment.

“Well, here we are again as the eccentric film director Tim Burton works alongside close friend Johnny Depp for the 8th consecutive time. Yet, we were in for a special treat in 2012 seeing as Dark Shadows is a vampire film and with Burton as director and Depp in the leading role, it could have turned out a dream come true! However, upon the release of the official theatrical trailer, it became almost a totally different film as it became more like a comedy and did not appear any serious vampire film at all. In addition, Tim and Johnny slightly lost their touch with Alice In Wonderland in 2010, there was the hope that they would make up for that. Nevertheless, Dark Shadows became a huge disappointment that has sunk Tim and Johnny to an even lower level.

Just like Lewis Carroll’s ” read more

" I have no words for how bad I think this movie is there were a lot of pointless scenes and the story line changed so many times with no cause or explanation, about half the time I was sitting there going what is going on? "

Movie Journal - May 2012 (17 movies items)

"Date: 11. May - First Time Watch - First off, I just want to say: yeah, I know the film has gotten a lot of negative reviews. While I can admit that it's got a lot of flaws, I still enjoyed this film really much. The acting was good, the characters were really interesting (they should have been developed better, though), the 70's music was awesome, and I thought it was a pretty damn dark comedy. Johnny Depp was great as the vampire Barnabas, both funny yet ruthless. Chloe Moretz wa"

Most Disappointing Films Of All Time (20 movies items)

"After being partially disappointed with his previous film Alice In Wonderland, Tim Burton, alongside Johnny Depp once again, could have made this film their masterpiece together. I mean, Tim Burton making a vampire film with Johnny Depp in the leading role is like a dream come true! What could possibly go wrong? However, after the release of the theatrical trailer, it totally weakened the film's reputation as it no longer looked like anything to take seriously and the humor gave Dark Shadows a r"

May Movie Journal - Xanadon't (31 movies items)

" Many of the things that I've always loved about Tim Burton's films are very much intact here: extravagantly gothic set-design, social outcast themes, a colorful ensemble of characters, and one Mr. Johnny Depp at the center in a performance that oozes with conviction. Yet I couldn't help but feel that while Dark Shadows may not be Burton's weakest film overall, it's certainly his laziest effort to date. And 'lazy' isn't an attribute that one would ever expect this director to be branded with -"

My most anticipated films of 2012 (27 movies items)

"At this point I'm sick of Johnny Depp starring in every Tim Burton movie that comes out, so I'm really not that excited about this one. Plus, while I still enjoy all of Burton's films to some degree his more recent output hasn't come anywhere near the greatness of his 80s work (or even his 90s work for that matter). Maybe I need to revisit the TV series it's adapted from & see if it improves my expectations here."

Most anticipating films of 2012... (16 movies items)

"Tim Burton and Johnny Depp making a vampire film together is quite literally a dream come true! And with more honorable mentions within the cast in supporting roles, expectations were rather high. It just depends on whether Tim can renovate after his disappointment of Alice In Wonderland and go back to what he does best. Fingers crossed that he does. PREDICTED RATING: 8/10"
