One of my favorite Tim Burton movies, I still think this character is one of the sweetest, saddest and most memorable out of all of his films. Johnny Depp again stars (although this was their first collaboration) in the lead, as the boy with scissors for hands, created by an old inventor Vincent Price (in a neat cameo) who dies before he can give him real ones. So Edward remains a type of humanoid, and when he finally leaves the old mansion where he lives he must interact with the suburbanites with whom of course, he doesn't quite fit in. It's still one of Johnny Depp's best performances, and Winona Ryder is good too as the girl he falls in love with. Even now, Tim Burton cites this movie as his most personal one, and it has one of the all time best Danny Elfman scores, the kind where once you hear the music it will forever be associated with the movie in your mind.
