E is for Edward Scissorhands
Although Edward may not be a monster per say, he is indeed a classic. He debuted back in 1990, spawned by the brilliant Tim Burton. I must say he is rather beautiful, isn't he? He's has a bit of Frankenstein in him too, huh? Anyway in the spirit of keeping these posts brief, I've decided to list five words (using the letter E) that I believe best describe our monster classic.
Exceptional * Exemplary * Endearing * Enigmatic * Entertaining
What words did you come up with? How much do you love Edward?
For my "B" post I talked about the Bride of Frankenstein and how incredibility cool she was. Today I wanted to briefly mention one of my favorite classic monsters, Frankenstein. The book aside, the monster is killer. The movie catapults his image though, thanks to Boris Karloff. The classic horror actor demonizes him on one scene and humanizes him in the next. When I rewatched the film there were parts that were dull or outdated. But I promise you, nearly every scene with our Monster hero (Karloff) was sheer brilliance. Even after all this time, he still captivates the audience with this sensational portrayal. If you've watched it, then you know what I mean. The scene alone is a classic.
F is for Frankenstein
How did my E & F posts measure up? Do you have any monsters you think would have been better to feature?
