Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Tim Burton, Mike Johnson
Inspired by a Jewish folktale, this gothic animated fantasy stars Johnny Depp as Victor Van Dort, a shy young man engaged to Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson). After flubbing his lines at the wedding rehearsal, he goes to the forest to practice them - and accidentally marries a woman buried there (Helena Bonham Carter). Tim Burton’s third stop-motion feature and first as a director also features the voices of Tracey Ullman, Albert Finney and Christopher Lee, and the music of Danny Elfman (who plays Bonejangles in the film).
Dir: Terenece Fisher
Director Terence Fisher and screenwriter Jimmy Sangster’s stripped-to-the-basics, expertly paced take on Bram Stoker’s popular bloodsucker remains one of the most satisfying, just plain exciting Gothic horror films ever made. From Christopher Lee’s revelatory, broodingly romantic performance as Dracula (introducing a sexual frisson to the proceedings) to Fisher’s masterful direction, from Peter Cushing’s Professor Van Helsing to Jack Asher’s atmosphere-drenched cinematography and James Bernard’s superb score, this is perfection. One of Hammer’s most enduring masterpieces!
Roger Moore's second outing as James Bond sends Agent 007 after a gadget that can harness the power of the sun; Christopher Lee is the bad guy he's up against. Britt Eklund is one of the most beautiful of all Bond girls as Mary Goodnight in this action classic scripted by Richard Maibaum and Tom Mankiewicz.
