Product Description

A gothic love story from Tim Burton. When Avon lady Peg Boggs (Dianne Wiest) pays a call to the local castle, she discovers Edward (Johnny Depp) - a half-finished, mechanical boy with scissors for hands. She takes him home to her suburban neighbourhood, where his exotic appeal and prodigious topiary skills make him a celebrity. However, prejudice against the unfamiliar soon takes its toll on the shy misfit.

From Amazon.co.uk

Edward Scissorhands achieves the nearly impossible feat of capturing the delicate flavour of a fable or fairy tale in a live-action movie. The story follows a young man named Edward (Johnny Depp), who was created by an inventor (Vincent Price, in one of his last roles) who died before he could give the poor creature a pair of human hands. Edward lives alone in a ruined Gothic castle that just happens to be perched above a pastel-coloured suburb inhabited by breadwinning husbands and frustrated housewives straight out of the 1950s. One day, Peg (Dianne Wiest), the local Avon lady, comes calling. Finding Edward alone, she kindly invites him to come home with her, where she hopes to help him with his pasty complexion and those nasty nicks he's given himself with his razor-sharp fingers. Soon Edward's skill with topiary sculpture and hair design make him popular in the neighbourhood--but the mood turns just as swiftly against the outsider when he starts to feel his own desires, particularly for Peg's daughter Kim (Winona Ryder). Most of director Tim Burton's movies (such as Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice and Batman) are visual spectacles with elements of fantasy but Edward Scissorhands is more tender and personal than the others. Edward's wild black hair is much like Burton's, suggesting that the character represents the director's own feelings of estrangement and co-option. Johnny Depp, making his first successful leap from TV to film, captures Edward's child-like vulnerability even while his physical posture evokes horror icons like the vampire in Nosferatu and the sleepwalker in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Classic horror films, at their heart, feel a deep sympathy for the monsters they portray; simply and affectingly, Edward Scissorhands lays that heart bare. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This review is going to be more about the Blu Ray side of things. The film in general is legendary and my favourite film ever personally, visually the film is stunning and the acting is superb, featuring some amazing actors (Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder etc.). Now for review of the Blu Ray version. I have the original DVD version which is very basic and has no special features at all which I found highly disappointing. The Blu Ray version does have a featurette which contains cast interviews and in sight into the making of the film which I found very good. It also includes original theatrical trailers and commentaries. In comparison to the DVD version this version has much more to offer. I personally think they should of released a 20th anniversary edition of the film which would had much more special features but for the time being this version is reasonable. As far as the resolution of the film, I think the remastering of the film is amazing considering this film, is 20+ years old now. I was a little hasty about how much of a difference it would be to the standard 480p version and wondered if it would be worth buying a film I already have on DVD, but I was not dissapointed with the new 1080p version. The colours are much more vivid and the picture quality is superb, you can see much more detail in facial shoots and a lot more in landscape shots.
All in all a great film to experience on Blu Ray and for the price it is now, a bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just because he's different 17 Mar 2004
By Tim
Format:DVD
In my opinion this has got to be Tim Burtons best film it also has to be Johnny Depps best, even though he's hilarious in Pirates of the Carribean he does to go a bit over the top in that role but this role he plays Edward perfect. Edward Scissorhands is one of my favourite films ever. Its a film that can make you laugh and can make you cry. The story is about Edward who was created by an inventor (respectfully played by Vincent Price )Edward wasnt created perfect he had scissors for hands. I dont get why the inventor didnt give him hands when gave him everything else eg: eyes, feet, hair etc. Anyway the inventor died before Edward could be completed. Ever since then Edward lived alone until a kind lady Peg took him home to live with her and her family. At first everyone is took to Edward, but the novelty soon wears off. But only one person Kim (Beautifully played by Winona Ryder) loves Edward for who he is on the inside. The film deserves 5 stars, watch it and try and be man enough not to shed a tear at the end. Edward Scissorhands Rules!

5.0 out of 5 stars a charming outsider: edward scissorhands 18 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Any one familiar with other works by Tim Burton has already become aware that the main characters of his movies are charming but lonely outsiders. I am referring to Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, or young Vincent, the hero of his first short film.
Jack discovers Christmas Land, and dreams of becoming the new Santy "Claws" (as he thinks his name is), and tries to bring the opposite worlds of Christmas Land and Halloween Town together. However, he fails and realises that he will remain an alien in normal society.
Likewise, Vincent is a young boy from Suburbia who dreams he lives in a story by Edgar Allan Poe, and thus becomes alienated from his family.
Edward Scissorhands comes from the same family of brilliant but isolated characters. He has been created by a scientist (Vincent Price), but the untimely death of his creator left him unfinished; his hands are sharp razors. He is different physically from other poeople, but also very innocent, as he has never been in contact with mankind.
His isolation comes to an end when an Avon-representative knocks on his castle's door, discovers him, and decides that, in his best interest, she will take him to Suburbia.
Disgusted by his appearance, the narrow-minded suburbians distrust him until they find out his gift for hair-cutting. A new phase in his life begins, and he finds himself attracted to Wynona Ryder, but is too shy to tell her.
The situation reaches a climax when he is taken advantage of by the girl's boorish boyfriend, a typical sports-addicted youngster with a pea-sized brain (if any). She then realises that he is too pure for this conformist world, and makes the police believe Edward is dead, so that he can go back to his castle and be out of reach of these stupid people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, beautiful film 21 Dec 2003
Format:DVD
Jonny Depp shines in this ninety's classic, and in my opinion,is one of his best films to date. Set in a modern day, slightly surreal senario, this film describes how an inventors unfinished project of a human is brought into family life with no knowledge of morals of that time, and his struggle to fit in.
This film had me weeping, laughing and above all amazed at the sensitivity of this film, without it being at all soppy, boring or predictable.It left me fully amazed at Jonny Depps ability to make the viewer completely understand of all his characters thoughts, without even uttering a word. The passion of this film had me raring, and jonny Depps good looks just add to the succes.
This film is like no other i have ever seen, but is well worth buying, for this film is a trgedy to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!! 31 July 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Tim Burton's attention to fairy tale detail is perfect for Blu Ray. Every blade of grass visible, all the colours crystal clear. This is the perfect DVD to watch on Blu Ray.

The film is visually stunning and the story is sad, funny and very sweet, but with a dark edge that Tim Burton is renowned for.

Thoroughly recommended.
