SFX - - Freeze frame -

Rich It’s been a long, long time since I’ve loved a Tim Bur­ton movie, but this has the po­ten­tial to be a re­turn to form. The story is cer­tainly ideal Bur­ton ter­ri­tory and I like the cast.

Will Doesn’t do it for me, I’m afraid – it looks twee as heck. I wish Bur­ton would break away from his tired vis­ual tropes and make some­thing low- key and stripped down like Ed Wood again.

Rhian I like the look of this. Eva Green looks – and sounds – amaz­ing and Asa But­ter­field has al­ready shown us he can com­bine just the right sense of odd­ness with solid emo­tional act­ing.

Ian So, X- Men Vic­to­ri­ana then, ba­si­cally? Not ex­actly a rad­i­cal shift of di­rec­tion for Tim Bur­ton, but it seems rather sweet and charm­ing, and the to­tal ab­sence of Johnny Depp is a re­lief.
