Tim Burton's Dark Shadows turns out to be a comedy.


You were expecting it to be something else?


Yes. A drama.

My favorite Burton movies tend to be dramas.

Not a big fan of vampire comedies like Polanski's Dance Of The Vampires or The Adams Family.

But I think the density of that film is primarily visual density and atmospheric and sound density, more so than narrative density. But, yeah, I think for a lot of filmmakers particularly, there will be a film like that in their past that they've really become a little obsessed with and seen too many times, or more times than seems healthy." - Christopher Nolan

there were vampires in the Addams family?

I know Lily was a vampire in The Munsters but I thought Morticia was just goulish.
If it isn't high concept the it's not worth watching believed the pseudo superior one.

She resembles a vampire but I don't recall it ever being used as a plot element. Plot trumps resemblance in my book.

Okay, so there weren't vampires involved but it was a comedy about a creepy pale-skinned family.

Huh, that was...unexpected. The more I think about it, the less I'm liking this trailer. The film looks terribly sitcom-ey, not really in my tastes...

But, as many have said before me, I'd rather have preferred a gothic Burton drama...

For some reason that version only went up to 360p; Here's a 1080p version

Am I the only person that is happy about the film's tone? Gothic Burton would be one too many. Good to see something a bit lighter for a change.

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Oh. Now, I feel weird.

Ok, give me a chance!

Hum... I like... hum.... Game Of Thrones... it's a good series... and, hum...

No, I can't do it! Wrath Of The Titans looks like pure shit! Djawadi is an awful composer! Lady Gaga is mankind's worst creation since the invention of the wheel!

Oh, and Spielbie's Tintin sucks! And we say "Tintin", not "Tin Tin", like some idiotic crapaholic people think! I don't like those people!

And I don't like you!


But I like your name. "LeBlanc" is a cool name.

I am waiting anxiously for William Henry Harrison the Werewolf Smiter which will surely be the next logical step as a prequel to that Lincoln film. Or maybe they'll film William Howard Taft the Ninja and Pirate Smasher.

Who cares, we've got the original Turtles movie.

They've tried repeatedly to re-invent this series and market it to younger audiences or girls...whatever. It's never been a great success following the first movies and the cartoon. It should be dark a violent when it's on film. It should not be aimed at children, but being compatible with children is fine (even if it freaks them out, like Raph screaming after Splinter is kidnapped).

I wasn't very pleased by this news either. If this is made I really hope to god it fails miserably. I love the 2007 animated movie. I also love the original Turtles film and Turtles 2. I like Turtles 3 to some degree but over all it's not as memorable as the other two. Of course I grew up watching the original Ninja Turtles cartoon series.

EVERYONE knows the origin story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For Michael Bay to try and say they're aliens is complete BULLSHIT. No one is going to believe that, no matter how "good" the plot / story will be. Hell even the makers of the animated 2007 film knew the origin story when they were making it. Hell it was basically a continuation of the original films, even Turtles 3 got recognition at the end when we see Splinter looking at his collection.

Either way as someone who really likes the Ninja Turtles, I for one will NOT be seeing this movie if it is made.

Grant I did sort of have a negativity towards the reboot for Spider-Man. However, after seeing the full theatrical trailer for it, it actually looks promising and I do want to see that.

This though... good god no. Michael Bay just leave shit like this alone!

I don't care that Michael Bay is directing it. Uwe Boll or McG could direct it, I don't care.

I care that he is turning the Turtles into aliens. That's sacrilege.


Then again, aliens are hip and stylish, and might be the only way they could think of to resurrect the franchise without seeming like "same old same old."

Hmmm...so if the only way to resurrect a franchise is to undermine it...DON'T RESURRECT IT!

But on then on the other hand, you are only three people. Hmm...

Perhaps the whole western world is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mad; and it's just me who is out of touch. Hmm...
