Johnny Depp & Winona Ryder in Edward Scissorhands

Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder are amazing in this movie.
Edward Scissorhands in one of my absolute favorite movies of all time.
I watched this movie over and over with my sister when we were both much younger.
I watched it again awhile back with my sister and fell in love with it all over again.
This time around, I couldn't help picking up all of the messages and
critiques of society that were in the film. It's an annoying thing really.
Ever since I took that film studies course in university, I can't watch a movie
without looking deeper and interpreting it somehow.
Even though I am able to see the underlying messages in this particular film
at my age now, I still am deeply moved by the story, the characters,
costumes, art, and the magic this film creates.
This film also puts me into the holiday spirit no matter what time of year it is.
