Ed Wood (1994)
on Sunday, January 13, 2013
It's the debut episode of The DVD Shelf, where your host David Rose reveals, reviews, and recommends the movies you should have on your own DVD shelf! He takes a look at the Tim Burton film Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp as one of the worst directors in history, and delves into Wood's real life to see how it compares to Burton’s hilarious vision of the man. Plus: a look at the Ed Wood Special Edition DVD. All this and more on the show where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!

"Perhaps the only reason the French love Jerry Lewis is because they were exposed to Sammy Petrillo first."Argo (2012)
“Had the film been helmed by a more seasoned director, or even a relative unknown, it never would have taken home the big prize. Because ultimately, the most interesting thing about Argo is that Ben Affleck directed it.”Gravity (2013)
“Finding myself taking the ‘it’s a great visual experience, the story is secondary to that’ stance this time around vaguely disturbs me.”Silver Linings Playbook (2012): Bipolar disorder as cute rom-com quirk
“Take away the bipolar disorder, OCD, and neuroses, and you’ve basically got yourself a typical romantic comedy.”Transcendence (2014): Johnny Depp 2.0 hacks actual clouds
“Just like with Christopher Nolan’s films, the action isn’t very exciting, and it feels forced into the story because the filmmakers were afraid no one would care about a sci-fi movie without explosions and shootouts.”Inglourious Basterds (2009)
“It’s hard to fault a film for not being what you want it to be, but one can’t help but wonder what would happen if Tarantino treated his material with a little more maturity or respect.”
