After Batman Returns, Burton brought Ed Wood back from the dead and gave him a semi-fictional biopic which, to be honest, is fun. funny at times, has great actors in amazing roles (Johnny Depp and Martin Landau). Burton's directing is second to none here, in what I consider to be one of his three best films (the other two being Batman Returns and Edward Scissorhands (Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick).
Shot in black and white, it is one of Burton's most auteur-ish pictures, with his entire cast playing outsiders trying to fit in, with edwoodian results. It didn't do much at the box office, but thank God for DVD and blu-ray, Ed Wood's ludicrous career can now be enjoyed at its fullest and best. Burton fans who don't know about this may very much want to join, since the film requires no knowledge of Wood's movies.
If you had the original DVD, all of the special features have been ported over, and even though they aren't too in-depth, they do mark serious scores for being very informative about the production, music, and more. (P.S.: Danny Elfman didn't score this one, Lord of the Rings' Howard Shore did, and it's perfect)
If you like BAD movies, if you enjoy Wood's productions, there's really nothing else to say but: welcome to Ed Wood Land :)
