    looks pretty good, even though i don't like the idea of it being a dark comedy.

    Barnabus is a vampire. HOW DO THEY EXPECT HIM TO KNOW HOW A TELEVISION WORKS!?!?!

    Looks like a winner*. Didn't see her in the trailer, but I'm guessing Helena Bonham Carter is in it.

    I haven't watched the trailer yet, but Tim Burton... ugh.

    Though Eva Green is sexy.

    Written by the same guy who wrote Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

    I don't think I've ever seen Dark Shadows the TV show, but the fanboy hatred of this trailer seems to be pretty loud.

    I didn't know there was much in the way of Dark Shadows fanboys.

    In that 2 minute preview I went from "this is a bad idea" to "this might be pretty funny with the 70's twist" back to "this is a bad idea."

    Wow, a desaturated, chalky faced Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton movie based off of an old franchise? THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!!

    I hate Tim Burton with a passion nowadays.

    My first thought was I can't wait to watch the Half in the Bag review of it.

    Tim Burton is such a lazy hack.

    I seriously can't think of any reason to watch this, unless someone else is footing the bill. But just watching it for the sake of watching it? I can't imagine putting it on Netflix, watching it on Instant, downloading it, etc.

    All I have to hear is Time Burton and I know I won't see it. The world is going to end when he makes an original film without Johnny Depp.

    Mike and Jay really need to start their own Rifftrax-type thing. I'd watch all these movies just for that.

    My friend on Facebook says that Tim Burton died in 2004 and was replaced with some piece of shit hack. I don't disagree (although I did like Sweeney Todd, but not really because of anything that Burton brought to the table)

    I have been hating Tim Burton since 2001. Happy to have you as a member of the club.

    I liked Big Fish, and that was 2003, but I've been on the Burton hate train for a while. I think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an abomination, and to call it unoriginal would be a massive understatement, and I still claim that his Alice in Wonderland is probably one of the 5 worst movies I've ever seen and I'm not even joking or exaggerating. I thought it was THAT bad. There's a long post I wrote somewhere around here after I watched it for the first time.


    EDIT: Found it.

    I too have expressed my Jason Ellis-level EXTREEEEEEME hatred towards Alice in Wonderland. Seriously. We get it. Victorian-era Brits were stuffy. Did Alice really need to become some sort of female empowerment tale about becoming a chick becoming banker in a world of "Why I Never!"s?? The Mad Hatter didn't need a god damned tragic backstory.

    I think Burton does a lot better when he is doing more original work.

    Pee-Wee
    Big Fish
    Beetlejuice
    Edward Scissorhands
    Mars Attacks
    Ed Wood

    I happened to really really like Sweeney Todd too.

    I also think Batman was really good.


    But his more recent trend of remaking films doesn't do much for me.


    I will most likely see this because Johnny Depp makes my wife wet though.

    It is also a case of large budget and star studded cast actually making the movie worse. With those things at your disposal, there is absolutely no excuse to produce such a bland piece of recycled garbage.

    I knew from what Burton did to The Planet of the Apes, not to trust him with a remake. Or as he likes to call them, "a re-imagining."
