Movie Reviews

  • this version of "Dark Shadows" would be a disappointment; from Burton, it's an even bigger one
    2 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the movie's tongue-in-cheek is firmly implanted, with jokes a-plenty referring to the outrageous styles of 1972
    2.5 of 5 by Kimberly Gadette [Doddle ]
  • the film's strength lies in the juxtaposition of director Tim Burton's Gothic world with '70s pop culture
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the film turns out to be an uncertain combination of elements that unsuccessfully tries to be half-scary, half-funny and all strange
    2.5 of 5 by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the film needs comedic anarchy
    2 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • the film is otherwise handsome, vaguely true to the old soap opera, and inert
    by Bob Mondello [NPR ]
  • that there was a lot of velvet and wall sconces and long meaningful looks between serious-faced adults in scary costumes
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • satisfying and skillful effort
    3 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • most of them are conducted off-screen, which might disappoint vampire fanatics out there
    by Joanna Langfield [The Movie Minute ]
  • its real love affair is between Johnny Depp and the audience who's still hooked on seeing him get his freak on
    Review rate : B+ by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • for all the plot that's unfolding, the movie keeps a very deliberate pace
    4 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • amusing, in fits and spurts
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • a mess, and it's unclear whether its bizarre recipe of comedy, campy horror, and gothic melodrama will satisfy anyone, regardless of their familiarity with the source material
    2 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
