I am going to see this tomorrow and I literally cannot wait! I am excited about it because it is a Tim Burton film starring Johnny Depp, and it has Edward Scissorhands (one of my favourite films of all time) written all over it!

Cut and pasted from an email from the BFI Website:

Dark Shadows - The IMAX Experience (12A)

Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy... until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard.

In 1752 the Collins family sails from Liverpool to start a new life in America. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas (Johnny Depp) is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy... until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). Angelique turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is freed and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harbouring their own dark secrets. Tim Burton directed this gothic vampire tale based on the cult TV series of the same name.

Reviews for this are pretty dire, but I want to see it anyway, just for the fun of it. :-))

I never believe reviews and I refuse to read them in advance of seeing something for myself. I would rather go and see something and make my own mind up about it.

Reviewers flock together. I have seen 5 stars reviews for productions that I have thought were rubbish, and dire reviews for productions that I have loved.

Reviewers were not/have not been kind to Emperor and Galilean or Travelling Light. I don't care. I know what I feel about both those productions in my heart. And that is what matters, not what a paid hack who gets to see it for free thinks.

What is important is what the paying audience thinks.
