Dark Shadows

AV Club
10 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Somewhere in the sloping arc of Tim Burton’s career, what was once a sensibility slowly morphed into a brand. That distinctive gothic flair, freed from horror and animated by comedy in great films like Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice , has not gone away, nor has his attraction to stories...

  • Conclusion: A word of warning: this is not the knockabout comedy the trailer suggests. Instead, it cleaves closer to what you expect from Burton: darkness, quirk and Johnny Depp on great form. A step up, then, from Alice In Wonderland and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, but not tip-top Tim.

  • Summary: Whilst not quite the triumph we might have been hoping for, this lushly produced gothic comedy is director Tim Burton’s best film since 2003’s Big Fish . More Depp, who was so annoying in Alice and Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factor y (Burton’s worst films if you take Planet of the Apes...

  • Excerpt: "Dark Shadows" is a dark comedy, although the jokes aren't as black as its gothic setting, a magnificent candlelit manor. Our protagonist is an affable chap and a vampire out of his time, coming to grips with the quirks of the modern world and the members of his equally awkward and peculiar family.

  • Excerpt: Dolletjes! Tim Burton en Johnny Depp werken voor de achtste keer samen aan een filmproject: het is helaas al lang geen nieuws meer waar je slapeloze nachten van krijgt. Recente collaboraties als CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY en ALICE IN WONDERLAND bleken mooi maar hol, en bovendien is het aantal...

  • Conclusion: Un set unico con facciata, un solo piano della tenuta (tra cui lo splendido salone con scalinata, lampadario e pavimento di maioliche), un giardino, una fontana e un muro esterno lungo 300 piedi.

  • Excerpt: Tim Burton gör comeback i den svarta, gotiska skräckens värld med den här vampyrkomedin som inte når upp till samma nivå som regissörens äldre kultfilmer och är överfull av karaktärer och sidohistorier. Men det är kul, snyggt och välspelat - och vi slipper Johnny Depp i en lustig hatt.

Burton på gott humör

10 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Inte ens i helvetet finns det , som William Congreve skrev, ett raseri som matchar det som en ratad kvinna uppvisar. Ynglingen Barnabas Collins, huvudperson i den nya filmen från firma Burton, Depp & Bonham Carter, Dark shadows (som utgår från en zombie- och varulvsfylld tv-serie från 1960-talet),...
