User's review of Dark Shadows
By Dave Winer on Friday, May 11, 2012 at 6:28 PM.
Nothing special, like every other Hollywood piece of shit movie. permalink
One thing was promising, because it was set in 1972, they could include lots of great old songs, which was fine for a while, until they hacked up two really great old favorite Alice Cooper songs. Especially Ballad of Dwight Fry. permalink
A picture named beetlejuicesmall.gifAnd Alice Cooper is such a great stageman, and got to do none of it in this movie. He just stood there like an idiot holding a microphone. permalink
Why can't Tim Burton do a movie like Beetlejuice or Edward Scissorhands, or one of the stop motion greats he did, Nightmare Before Christmas, or Corpse Bride. Those movies had humor and soul, even grabbed your heart. Lately his movies have really sucked. This one got great reviews so I had high expectations, but maybe that's why I hated it so much, because it was such an ordinary stupid dull idiotic plotless movie, with no characters. Awful. permalink
My favorite Tim Burton movie is still Beetlejuice. I think I'll watch it tonight to remind me how much fun a good haunted house movie can be.  permalink
Now, I'm sure NakedJen will love it. And I respect her for that. But I give a huge thumbs-down. Terrible waste of talent.  permalink
BTW, I'm sure it'll make huge money. It's exactly teh kind of movie that packs in the kiddies.  permalink
