I love Dark Shadows. Not gonna lie, I'm speaking of the 90's remake, but this is just weird for me. Sometimes Tim Burton is brilliant, and then well...sometimes he does something like this and Willy Wonka. :unsure:

I think it looks good. I'll probably be going to see it.

I never watched the original. It's a comedy??? :unsure:

It looks funny, not sure I'd got to the cinema to watch it but certainly at home

Thanks for that, Tom, very funny. :lol: What a good start to the day. :thumbsup:

The original and 90's remake was a serious show, however, that's doesn't seem to be the case with this new version.

It's kind of interesting. I read an article the other day about this movie that stated that the reaction to it is pretty evenly divided among two camps. The fans of the original (or 90's remake) are not enthusiastic. The people who weren't fans of the originals are really looking forward to this. For myself, I was not a fan earlier and as such, am looking forward to this one. To each their own.

It's just kind of interesting to me how this has turned out to be so polarizing. :shrug:

Tom (:macwave:... it appeals to my twisted sense of humor.)

Interesting! I had no idea it *was* a remake! I saw the commercial for it the other day and was immediately intrigued...and, well, since he went to all the trouble of debuting it on my birthday....I'll go see it :)

Ok. I went to see this last night. It was weird. well, that may not even be a fair assessment. I had only seen the trailers. I thought it was going to be a funny movie. It is not.

That being said, I have never seen the original tv show (which apparently I should have so I would have understood the movie so much better!). I've never seen any remakes. Nothing.

I think it was well made but again, without seeing the original show, I can't even say.

I will say that I thought it was a hybrid of The Exorcist, Death Becomes Her, True Blood, a little POTC and Haunted Mansion thrown in......

Ya' know, I meant to post this up a week ago. My DW and I saw it too and while she liked it, it left me kinda cold. I did think there were some funny bits but overall, it was a big so what. At least from my perspective.

Tom(:macwave:... so it goes...)

19-05-2012, 11:54 PM
We saw it today and both liked it

It's not going to go down as an epic or tim burtons best but it was a fun enough movie

However unlike Johnie I'd call it a dark comedy :lol: the showing we went to saw the whole theatre laughing regularly all the way through.

Hmmm, mixed reviews. :unsure:

The Chiller channel played the 90's remake last weekend. I watched some of it (even though I own it).

:tongue: I did expect it to be dark comedy since it IS a Tim Burton but I expected more funny parts. And I didn't expect the more intense stuff. I went in completely clueless!

Of course, it did not help that I went to pick up the tickets and kept telling the lady I was there to see The Avengers :tongue:
