I'll admit that there are some plot holes in this movie, and when I actually start thinking really hard about them, they start to bug me. However, there's something about this movie that is kind of magical for me and prevents me from disliking any little bit of it.
47/100 (Beetlejuice gibi güzel bir filmin puanı 3,6 iken bu filmin puanının 3,8 olması bana göre sinema sanatına da Tim Burton'a da hakarettir. Demekki aptal sinema seyircisi sadece Türkiye'de değil dünyada da var. Bu puanların bir açıklaması olamaz. Kötü senaryo ve Johnny Depp hariç kötü oyunculuğun bir tık altı zaten Dedemin Fişi filmi. Ne olursunuz büyüyün artık ya. Verilen mesajlar 1 yıldızdan kurtarıyor ancak.)
"How glorious it is - and also how painful - to be an exception,"-Alfred de Musset. Tim Burton has made many stylish and fun films that I admire greatly, but this one in particular defines his aesthetic and also his primary artistic concern. Burton depicts the outsider looking in at a world that seems as alien to him as he does to it. A satirical fable and also a deep expression of alienation and longing. Beautiful.
2-3? It's kinda charming initially. But the movie sort of falls apart when the time comes for it to buckle down and mine its central conflict for meat. I recognize that, more often than not, fairy tales tend to be simple abstractions. But these characters cross the line from simple (but working) to flat and stupid. Overall, an exercise in thoroughly puerile sorrow. A gothic moe Frankenstein, if you will.
