Edward Scissorhands has one of the most darling “monsters” and one of the kindest”mad scientists” you could find. I like the High Gothishness of the movie. Yeah, it is dated. Johnny Depp is basically playing Robert Smith. The part with Winona Ryder playing a really old lady at the end never worked. But I love the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari meets My Three Sons aesthetic.

Man, Depp is so young here.

Oh, this pre-dates when “kooky characters set to Danny Elfman music” became a standard trope for movie trailers. So it seems like a retread but at the time it was quite fresh.
