If youโ€™re after a more-in-depth look at some films and/or filmmaking techniques more than just a quick take on the films as we watch them, please have a look at our Film Analysis page.


WHAT WE THINK:

OUR SCORE:

4.5 out of 5 starsSuch a great film!

JUST A FEW WORDS:

Where to start from with this one: another one of our all-time favourite films.

The power of stories, no matter how good or bad, just stories. Some of the shots are so close to the actual ones, yet, these are not judged terribly as they were in the actual films. Tim Burton transforms a duckling (that ugly?) into a swan. And then you have Bela Lugosi and some gothic atmosphere when he’s around! What more can you want?

PROS:

  • Acting.
  • Atmosphere.
  • Stories.
  • A look at a different cinema: one that is not so polished but that shares the very same dreams of the A-Movies.
  • Black and White Cinematography.
  • The first scene and the opening credit sequence.
  • Bela Lugosi vs Boris Karloff.
  • Orson Welles!
  • Some great lines.

CONS:

  • Maybe it needs a bit of background info on Bela Lugosi and Ed Wood.

GENERAL INFO:

Ed Wood (1994) Biography, Comedy, Drama | 127min | 27 May 1995 (Italy) 7.8
Director: Tim BurtonWriter: Rudolph Grey, Scott AlexanderStars: Johnny Depp, Martin Landau, Sarah Jessica ParkerSummary: Because of his eccentric habits and bafflingly strange films, director Edward D. Wood Jr. is a Hollywood outcast. Nevertheless, with the help of the formerly famous Bela Lugosi and a devoted cast and crew of show-business misfits who believe in Ed's off-kilter vision, the filmmaker is able to bring his oversize dreams to cinematic life. Despite a lack of critical or commercial success, Ed and his friends manage to create an oddly endearing series of extremely low-budget films. Written by Jwelch5742
