Movie: Edward Scissorhands

Something dark and siniter has arrivied and it is awesome ! One of tim burton's flim and if ur a fan of him then YAY!

Edward Scissorhands
The Spiky Plot
Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands opens as an eccentric inventor (Vincent Price) lovingly assembles 
a synthetic youth named Edward (Johnny Depp). Edward has all the essential ingredients for today's 
standard body, with the exception of a pair of hands. For what is initially thought to be a temporary 
period, he is fitted with long, scissor-like extremities that, while able to trim a mean hedge, are hardly 
conducive to day-to-day life.

When the kindly inventor dies, however, Edward is left lonely  and cursed 

with some very heavy metal for hands. He is eventually taken in by Peg Boggs (Dianne Weist), an Avon 
lady who takes pity on him after seeing his bleak existence.
Edward, in spite of his inherent ability to 

slay anyone he comes across, is a gentle soul whose only wish is to be loved. His impromptu family has, 
at best, a limited understanding of Edward, but he finds himself drawn to Peg's weary but sympathetic 
daughter, Kim (Winona Ryder), who is dating Jim (Anthony Michael Hall), the neighborhood bully.

Meanwhile, Edward finds himself a local celebrity after the town realizes that his talents include creative 
hedge trimming and an unrivaled ability to cut hair. His so-called friends are proven fair-weather when 
Edward is accused of a crime, after which his only supporters are Peg and Kim.

Some eerie thoughts to slain
I absolutely love this masterpiece by dark director Tim Burton. It has developed a cult following 
among older kids, and it remains a dark, romantic and deeply deeply moving lesson about accepting 
differences. I really cannot stress how incredible this film is... The acting is incredible, Johnny Depp 
plays a lost, frightened Edward so well that it seems real.
