Check Out These Retro Looks From Dark Shadows

As commenter Lemona mentioned yesterday “remember that movie in which Depp wasn’t in kooky attire, and he created a memorable character? No,  I don’t either.” I’m no great Johnny Depp fan, myself. In spite of that, here’s the trailer for Dark Shadows. It it, you can check out some of the retro styles. We’re posting the trailer because we’re a fashion and beauty website. No?

Fine, I’m posting it because it looks super fucking weird and I want to see what other people think of it. I mean, it goes without saying I will go, because, time traveling vampires and bouffants, but how does everyone else feel? Can we all agree it looks super fucking weird/discuss what kind of party snack we will make before attending this on the opening night? Buying tickets now.

    Hellz yeah, I’m gonna see it. Not because of Johnny Depp, so much, but it looks really entertaining. (I am easily amused) And Eva Green is enough to sell me on a movie.

    Also, this article give me an excuse to share this awesome “if Tim Burton redid Weekend At Bernie’s” video.

    This is going to be fantastic.

    Hmmmmm… He was relatively normal looking in Ed Wood, one of the few Burton films that doesn’t make me cringe (and seems up your alley, Jennifer) Also the Jim Jarmusch film Dead Man was great, a much more reserved, subtle performance. I agree most of his recent work is shit, but underneath the fedoras and purple eyeshadow and he’s really not a bad actor.

    I’m not even bothering to figure it out, cause I have such a small memory of it, I was like 5 and was at a friend’s house, and also cause Burton said he’s taking it in a totally different direction – that he didn’t want to repeat the past version of it. So I guess weird is where it ended up. Yeah okay, I’m willing to throw Johnny over the side – maybe except for Gilbert Grape? With such a big name, I thought I could think of more films I liked him in. Geoffery Rush totally upstaged in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.

    It looks completely different from the original tv show, but that’s probably a good thing, since the show was pretty awful. As a fan of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, AND Dark Shadows, (when I said it was awful, I meant in a hilarious and entertaining way) there’s no way I couldn’t see this.

    Also, I think Johnny deserves more credit than you give him. Yes, he does a lot of quirky roles, in large part because he is uncomfortable with the “handsome leading man” status he could so easily fall into. However, he has acted and shined in plenty of more serious movies, some notable examples being What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Chocolat, The Man Who Cried, and Dead Man. Dead Man is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

    …Why do I only seem to comment when I have a dissenting opinion? I LOVE YOU A LOT JENNIFER, I SWEAR. Now I just sound like a creeper. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse.
