**** out of ****    Often called the worst film director of all time - with his films also given the privilege of being regarded as some of the crappiest ever produced - it would seem that Edward D. Wood Jr. would have no reason to be optimistic. Yet, played here by Johnny Depp, he has nothing to do but smile. Certainly a whacky, peculiar individual; Ed believed his area of expertise to be filmmaking, even though he didn't know jack-squat on the subject. He never went to film …

"Honey, what if I'm wrong? What if I just don't got it?"    "Ed, it was only one review."    "Orson Welles was only 26 when he made Citizen Kane. I'm already 30."    "Ed, you're still young. This is the time in your life when you're supposed to be struggling."    "I know. But I'm scared it's not going to get any better than this."       …

First of all, thanks to Brantastic16 for initially recommending this to me! Now, onto the review. Ed Wood is a phenomenal movie and the best from both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. The film is superbly acted by everyone and superbly directed by Burton as well as being superbly funny and dramatic. I never knew much about Ed Wood prior to viewing this film, but watching it makes me want to watch his films. Out of all of Burton and Depp's films together, this is probably the artsiest, the least dark …

 Johnny Depp stars as Ed Wood, arguably the worst movie director of all time, in this amusing and at times, touching story of Ed's career in the fifties. Ed was an unparalleled optimist, enamored with movie-making; he possessed little talent, expertise, or money, but he and his little group of pals made cheap and very bad horror/sci-fi movies and loved it. The only star he ever worked with was Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau), decades after his success as 'Dracula,' now drug-addicted …

So many Tim Burton movies have great ideas and beautiful visuals, but somehow go a little flat in the telling. For example, BIG FISH had some great things to look at, along with a some fun performances...but in the end it was too pleased with itself to make an emotional impact and the ending was muddled. BATMAN was a visual and acting delight as well, but had absolutely no suspense because the action sequences were dull...it was clearly not what interested Burton, but it meant the movie never got …

A very offbeat movie indeed. Johnny Depp is quite adept at portraying this astonishingly talentless film director. The oddball characters that Martin Landau and Bill Murray play are quite entertaining as well. The black and white setting works well with the mood of the film.The twists and turns that Depp encountes in getting this film releases are indded comical. Although the formula tires just a little bit towards the end, the overall impression is a good one. Worthy of a viewing.
