  1. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Ed Wood

    As time goes by, I find myself admiring "Ed Wood" less as a actual biopic and more as an affectionate tribute to outsider cinema. It's a quirky, yet inspiring story about following one's passion, as well as a humorous look at show business politics. The cinematography is a lovely homage to "B"-movies, and Depp and Landau work off each other wonderfully. Factual inaccuracies aside, this is a delightful film.

  2. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Ed Wood

    Burton's masterpiece & one of the great American films. In avoiding Wood's more nefarious personal struggles, the film makes a conscious effort to celebrate the director as an idealistic figurehead for a particular kind of cinema; a strange, home-made, uniquely personal cinema that exists for the simple joy of making. It's a beautifully romantic re-imagining the truth & as much a reflection of Burton as it is Wood.

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Ed Wood

    A delightful salute to sheer ambition and faith of vision which neatly avoids outright condescension towards it's less-than-salubrious mileau. One leaves the film uplifted in the possibilities of human endeavour and comradeship.

  4. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Ed Wood

    Absolutely adore this film. So funny and emotional. Tim Burton's best film IMHO, and Martin Landau's Lugosi is a deserved Oscar-winner.

  5. Trevor L. Charles's rating of the film Ed Wood

    "Boris Karloff is a cocksucker." Tim Burton's best.

  9. cihangir21's rating of the film Ed Wood

  10. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Ed Wood

    An anxiety dream for young creators.

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film Ed Wood

    One of few Tim Burton films I actually really like. A love letter to the arguable worst director who ever lived.

  12. Mr. Smifff's rating of the film Ed Wood

    Gorgeous, funny, and well-acted. This a cautionary tale to all those who want to work in the movie industry, yet at the same time, Tim Burton tells this story non-judgementally, as Ed Wood is quite relatable, and 3-dimensional. This is my favourite Tim Burton movie, with my favourite Johnny Depp performance, AND Patricia Arquette is frankly underrated in it. I found her performance small and unforgettable.

  13. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Ed Wood

    My favorite Burton film-- wish he would do something so strange and beautiful again.

  14. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Ed Wood

    Atmospheric cinematography sets the mood brilliantly and highlights the good, the bad and the weird, but does little to focus Burton's wondering mind.

  15. angelicidea's rating of the film Ed Wood

    I have watched it for the third time and it still works, even though it is not my favourite Burton.

  16. Yayo's rating of the film Ed Wood

    reminded me of Woody Allen stories. That haunted house telling his secret scene though

  17. JayCanaday's rating of the film Ed Wood

  22. Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film Ed Wood

  23. Alex Iamandiu's rating of the film Ed Wood

  24. Matthew Horvath's rating of the film Ed Wood

    Tim Burton's Ode to the Unsung! Martin Landau got an Oscar for playing Bela Lugosi, while Lugosi - The Real McCoy got jack-squat!!! Some great bits in this, whether they truly happened or not. This is how to do an entertaining Bio-Pic ... more of a celebration, than a cheesy "E-True Hollywood Story!" Love the Black-and-White cinematography! When Mr. Burton does smaller films like this, I get inspired!
