6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Pinkerton Snoopington on Dec 18 2004
Format: DVD
"Ed Wood," with the possible exception of "Batman," is Tim Burton's best film. It's a very funny chronicle of the life of the titular transvestite Z-grade film director, focusing on his films with Bela Lugosi ("Plan 9," "Bride of the Monster," "Glen or Glenda"). Johnny Depp is hilarious as Wood, and Martin Landau is absolutely astonishing as Bela Lugosi, who provides the emotional core that seperates this from most of Burton's work. In addition, the black and white photography is beautiful, and evokes the essence of the period in which Wood's awful movies were made.
This long-delayed DVD from Touchstone is in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The image is sharp with hardly any scratches. Sound is equally stellar, particularly in the opening credits.
Luckily, the disc is packed with extras. Most notable is a group commentary, in which Tim Burton and writers Scott Alexander and Larry Kareszewski (sic?) do most of the talking. Fans will also appreciate "Let's Shoot this F&%^&," a collection of behind-the-scenes footage hosted (rather campily) by Johnny Depp. Other featurettes are about the music, the production design, and the creation of Bela Lugosi (both with acting in makeup). There are five deleted scenes (and a hidden sixth one), one of which includes a cameo by longtime Ed Wood regular Paul Marco. A theatrical trailer and a memorable music video round out the extras.

I think that this movie really caught the essence of Ed Wood. His peculiar habits and mannerisms, his somewhat strange relationships and his movies. Being a Bela Lugosi fan, I really like Martin Landau's portrayal of Lugosi as he is shown as a struggling actor who once was great but not in demand anymore. The movie also shows Ed's attempts to bring special effects into his films which was fun to watch. Also there are nice special features on this dvd.

Format: DVD
Ed Wood is a fascinating figure -- he made several low-budget movies that have become cult classics, despite having no talent or understanding of how to make a movie. He just loved film.

And director Tim Burton clearly has a lot of respect for that love. "Ed Wood" follows the director during the, um, best part of his career, as well as his friendship with the fallen horror actor Bela Lugosi. This is one of the best films that Burton has ever made -- a slightly cartoonish tale about an optimistic, energetic man who wouldn't let anything stand in his way.

When playwright Ed Wood Jr. (Johnny Depp) hears about a schlocky sex-change movie, he convinces a producer to let him direct the movie... because he's a transvestite. No, I don't quite understand the logic. Then he strikes up a friendship Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau), whose drug addictions have destroyed his career. But Wood blithely casts his idol in the movie, determined to give him the recognition he deserves.

After "Glen and Glenda" bombs, Wood starts searching for independent funding for his next movie, "Bride of the Atom" -- only to encounter a lot of personal and financial disasters, including being dumped by his girlfriend and Lugosi's suicidal depression.

The next movie -- initially called "Grave Robbers From Outer Space" -- seems to be going well at first, especially since Ed has found love with Kathy (Rosanna Arquette). But then things begin to spiral off into disaster when Ed must contend with a tragic death and recalcitrant Baptists who don't understand Wood's vision. Will this movie finally crush Ed Wood's spirit?

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 :)
