Edward Scissorhands

Back before Tim Burton was transformed into a robot that spews out mediocre remakes with rainbow sprinkles on top, he was fantastic at telling quirky stories with a whimsical sense of melancholy, and there is no better example of this than the lovely Edward Scissorhands. The film (which was THE movie that convinced everyone that Johnny Depp could act btw) has precious moment after precious moment. We challenge you to watch this film and NOT well up with tears during the scene in which Winona Ryder dances in slow motion through a snowfall generated by Edward’s dexterous hands… Ok, that might sound strange on paper, but on the screen it’s magic!
