Christmas is finally approaching which thought alone is enough to make me peaceful. I love lazy days staying inside watching movies and reading books. I guess everybody has a special Christmas movie, the one movie that alone can bring Christmas so close to the heart and make snow fall if not outside then in our minds. For me that movie is Edward Scissorhands. It hasn't been 'my' Christmas movie for long, perhaps just a couple of years, but now I won't call it Christmas before I've seen it at least once. Sometimes even I want to save it so I can watch it on Christmas eve or Christmas day.
Enough babbling about me, on with the movie! First off, I guess it is not your traditional Christmas movie, but I guess you knew that? Johnny Depp plays Edward (not Cullen!) who has scissors instead of hands. Although he has trouble fitting in, eventuelly he finds himself a place in the pastel/plastic community he starts to live in. There he meets lovely Winona Ryder (which we all know was Johnny's girlfriend at the time!!) who falls madly in love with him.
I think this is one of the movies that reflects Tim Burton in a more personal way. It's about a person who finds himself alone and enstranged from other people because he is different. As Edward tries to adapt to other people as to be liked, he finds out how quickly people can turn from love to hate in an instant.
