    i believe that this film, maybe more then any other best exemplifies what it is like to have a form of autism (aspergers, PDD, ex.). edward lives in a world he wasn’t meant for, and he will always be "almost human". no matter how long he lives in society, his hands will always prevent him form being "normal". just like how poeple with autism always feel like there is something holding them back from being "normal".

    When Peg is showing Edward the pictures and points to the first picture (Bill) Edward glances momentarily to Kim’s picture before looking at Bill’s.

    When the TV show host asks Edward, "How ’bout it Ed? Is there some special lady in your life?" Peg smiles at the host but when she turns to Edward, expecting the answer, her look says, "You’d better not say *my* daughter!"

    On the TV show when Edward says, "The friends I’ve made," the dog on stage yawns as if saying "Worst answer EVER!"

    Feel free to add :)

    The last time I saw this movie was about 10 years ago on VHS. I was about 7 and it scared me soooo bad, words cannot describe. Walking through Target I saw that it was $9.99 on Blu Ray, and I bought it because even though I haven’t seen it in 10 years, I wanted to watch it again. Lets just say I got more than I bargained for. As the begining credits rolled, the music… it just blew me away, it was spine tingling. It blows me away every time. HONESTLY I could talk about this movie day to night. BUT getting to the point, I guess when I was a kid and I saw Edward as a horrific figure, but TODAY I feel his pain. He is not human, doesnt have a heart, but still he can love. That right there just blows me away. Also, that I pity Edward. He is alone and he is lonesome. This movie is indeed a masterpiece and in my top 10. And Vincent Price, just knowing that it was his last movie…it just blows me away…The whole movie BLOWS me away. If you have not seen this, you have to get it. We can all relate to Edward, in some way or another.

    Has anyone seen the great Peter Sellers film I’m All Right Jack?

    But I was wondering something, concerning the scene early in the film, when the Ian Carmichael character is touring the candy factory. The design of the machines strongly reminded me of Vincent Price’s cookie-making apparatus in Edward Scissorhands. This isn’t the kind of film I’d associate with Tim Burton’s childhood viewing, but the similarity is striking.

    Has anyone ever thought about this, or hear something. Or perhaps a better question, has anyone seen the film?

    Not only did Danny Elfman’s score not win an Oscar for Original Score, it didn’t even get NOMINATED. How is that even remotely possible? This is one of the most emotionally powerful scores I’ve ever heard, and it still chokes me up every time I listen to it.

    Elfman got the shaft, that’s for sure.

    I was going to start a topic claiming this deserved to be on the top 250, and I see it’s nº250! Maybe tomorrow it won’t be here anymore, but today it is! It’s a shame. IMO, it should be up there, because for me, it’s one of the best and most touching movies of all time!

    Personally, I can’t even describe how I feel when watching this, especially at the end. I feel happy, extremely sad, touched, enchanted, romantic, humorous, and even sometimes jealous (for some strange reason). The music, the visuals, the performances, it just all ties together and creates a strange world of emotions.

    I would like to see a sequel for this movie. Since Edward doesn’t grow old, a sequel is possible with other new characters.

    this is up there with films like ET and Field Of Dreams as movies to make grown men cry, but this has to be by far the saddest.

    It’s an electric drill. You get me, you kill me!

    Mine is when he goes to the restaurant to meet the family after being in the salon with that red headed lady and he goes,"Then she showed me the back room where she took off all of her clothes."

    It made me laugh so hard! He’s so adorable and naive!

    What’s yours?

    Anyone else notice that Edward Scissorhands was one of the clips in the "horror film" tribute. You know, the one that included clips of Freddy Kruger and Norman Bates?

    I wonder what that was about, since I’ve never known this movie to be considered a horror film, but rather comedy/drama. Oh, well. It made me laugh.

    Anyone notice that Edward’s fame is like The Savage in Brave New World. Also, the movie is similar to The Marble Faun by Hawthorne (little read book), also Frankenstein. Anyone notice any other similarities.

    What hump?

    Relate to ‘belonging’.

    I’m using this film for a related text, and I have a bunch of notes, but I’d like to hear what you guys think about it too. Whatever you can offer that has anything to do with belonging (or not belonging) would be great.

    Thanks!

    Compare this to his newest film (Alice in wonderland) Edward scissorhands blows this out of the mad hatters hat. I want to see more of Tim Burtons Personal films. NOT THESE REDO? CHOCLATE FACTORY, PLANET OF THE APES TRASH. His early staff is what mad him for who he is today. Beetljuice,Big Fish,Vincent,Batman,Mars Attack and of courses Nightmare On Christmas Eve. Ive got into the filming industry becasue of tim burton. And now im starting to lack in his story telling.

    why would you give someone scissors for hands?

    surely there are lots of more suitable substitutes for hands than scissors?

    on a completely different note, did anyone else notice how much like a doll Peg looked when she was pointing to her face whilst describing her new range of makeup?

    This film deserves more than a rating of 8. At the moment its ranked 250, it should be further up. So if you read this, click the 10 box and give this film the respect that it needs.

    Was making Winona Ryder play an old woman at the end of the film, she was great in the film, its just they should of just casted some old lady to do that last scene.

    At least Titanic managed to do that.

    With me, it takes me on a whole roller coaster ride of emotions ranging from sadness, emptyness, melancholy and heartache.

    I can honestly say, and I’ve watched a LOT of movies, that I have NEVER felt so different then I have after watching Edward Scissorhands.

    It’s such a beautiful movie that connects with me and a lot of people on so many different levels.

    What does everyone else think?

    Peace!

    Did this movie by any chance take place during the present era? The majority of the vehicles I see in this film are from the 1970s and it makes me wonder if the movie took place in the 1970s or not
