31 Days of Halloween: Movie Review #3
Today's Movie was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by director Tim Burton.
Can we just take a moment to note the many points of awesomeness in this movie?
1) Johnny Depp- 'nuff. said.
2) Christina Ricci- She always does so well with the creepy roles.
3) Classic literature made over into great movie
4) Perfect combination of creepy and humor.
I could go on... and on... and on.. The actors in this movie are so incredible. I love Johnny's portrayal of Ichabod Crane. I think it's hilarious how squeamish and scared he gets at the scary parts of the movie. I am so right there with him: a total coward. *laughs*
And can we just take a moment to talk about how incredibly creepy Christopher Walken is as the headless horseman? I mean... let's face it, he's pretty scary looking even on a normal day, so him in this role is just down right horrific (in a very good way).
P.S.- Harry Potter shout-out: Dumbledore and Uncle Vernon are both in this movie. (Okay, I know that's not their real names, but I heart Harry Potter so you will all just have to deal with it).
