"15.5.2012 Tästä löytyy suunnilleen kaikki Burtonin leffojen tavaramerkit ja visuaalinen ilme on burtonmaisesti kohdallaan. Johnny Depp on ihan jees vampyyrinä joka heräilee 1960-luvulla, uinuttuaan 200 vuotta arkussa. Depp, muut tähdet ja 60-luvun fiilistely pitivät mielenkiinnon yllä kivan viihdyttävästi, vaikka lopputaistelut eivät niin sytyttäneetkään. Christopher Leelle olisin kyllä yhteen kohtaukseen ladannut itse jonkun tiukan one-linerin, mutta nyt sain tyytyä vain bong"

A structural and tonal mess

“"Two centuries ago, I made Collinwood my home... until a jealous witch cursed me, condemning me to the shadows, for all time."

Dark Shadows is one strange flick. It's Burton-esque in the truest sense, yet it's a far cry from the genius usually associated with this descriptor. The eighth collaboration of director Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp, Dark Shadows is an utter mess; narrative strands are all over the shop, character relationships are skimmed over, mythology is confused, and the tone veers wildly from pure horror to campy comedy. As a result, the picture never comes together in any cohesive or satisfying way. To its credit, the film is most certainly not the boisterous comedy its terrible marketing implied, as it seems to be more of a serious gothic horror movie. Neverthe” read more

2012 Movies I've Seen (98 movies items)

"Normally I am not a fan of Tim Burton's movies. To me he seems to be a director that favors style over substance and that often bothers me and takes away from my enjoyment of his films. I've seen all his work and have liked only 4 other movies of his: Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice, Ed Wood, and Sweeney Todd. This film, Dark Shadows, makes for his 5th film I have actually enjoyed. For the most part the things about Burton's films that I don't enjoy are in this one, but they are overshadowe"

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

"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 (21 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 -"
