Blog: Big Eyes – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
For modern day Tim Burton Big Eyes is something of a masterpiece.  The problem is considering, his last film was the utter pile of rubbish Dark Shadows and before that the misjudged Alice In Wonderland remake, that’s not saying much.  Playing more like his earlier ‘straight film’ Big Fish, this is Burton reining in all his eccentricities with not a Johnny Depp or Bonham-Carter in site (thankfully).  Sadly though, with those bits stripped out, there isn’t much left.  Okay some good performances and a modernly interesting story but overall it’s just a bit of a slog.

Best Bit: Adams & Waltz are very good

Buy, Rent, Stream, Borrow: Rent

If You Liked this Try: Beetlejuice, Sweeney Todd, Big Eyes
