Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
Alice was nice to look at, and interesting at times, but not the classic that it could have been. I'm starting to believe that TB is actually twins, one good (Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood) and one evil (Sweeney Todd, Sleepy Hollow).

Yeah, I just said Sweeney Todd sucked. I saw it on Broadway and consider it one of the high points of my life, but the movie, for some reason, took place entirely at night, hardly a bright color anywhere, and where the stage version had some dark humor, the movie was just plain dreary. The time I spent watching it is time I'll want back at the end of my life. And "Sleepy Hollow" is another instance of a perfectly good story that Burton played around with and ultimately, messed up. And, like "Alice" was nice to look at, but with an awfully dreary story.
