This post is for The Film Experience’s awesome series Hit Me With Your Best Shot series.

I chose this difficult to cap moment because it’s when Edward fully realizes that he can’t pass as normal anymore so he rips off his suburban costume. This would probably work better as a gif but I still haven’t taught myself how to make those.

Normally when I do one of these I go overboard telling you everything that I love about the specific film. However I’m currently highly emotional so I mainly just cried while rewatching this Tim Burton film for the first time in years.

4 out of 5 stars

Dark Shadows is a campy horror comedy. It’s based on a supernatural soap opera about a vampire named Barnabas Collins that aired from the late ’60s to the early ’70s. The show was remade in the ’90s. The film version is set in the early ’70s. Tim Burton’s film stars his muse Johnny Depp as well as his long time girlfriend (she would be considered his common law wife if they lived in the US), the awesome Helena Bonham Carter.

The cast is rounded out by Eva Green, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley (or as we may always think of him, 2nd Freddy Krueger).

Please enjoy my long but fun and informative video review of the film, above. It touches on the issues with feminism prevalent within the film because I could not avoid it for some reason.

I was recently reading about the Bad Movie MegaTwitterthon 6/4/11: Introduction to Destruction at Mr. Gable’s Reality via She Blogged By Night and thought that I would like to do the same thing but with Johnny Depp movies. Recently I thought about how I’d like to have a little Johnny Depp marathon for myself and this seemed like a fun thing to do in tandem with that.

So Sunday, July 31, 2011, (tomorrow) I will be watching a bunch of Depp flicks and tweeting about them. If you’re also a twitter freak then you can participate and follow along by using the hashtag #JDeppTweet and/or #JohnnyDepp. I will be following along. Many times we tweet about movies anyhow and sometimes we even watch them together after mentioning what channel they are on anyway. You can also follow along on with me on my twitter here or on GetGlue, mine is here but I don’t know if I’ll remember to check in. If you are not on twitter or GetGlue feel free to comment below. If you participate then I might do it again soon.

my stack of Depp DVDs

My game plan is most likely Blow, Secret Window, The Ninth Gate and then 1 of or a combination of Ed Wood, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Libertine, Rango and Sweeney Todd. Feel free to invent your own.

You are probably thinking, “Mary, I don’t have a stack of Johnny Depp DVDs laying around”. Lucky for you that I have compiled a list of other means of watching his movies below.

MY TOP PICKS FOR YOU

FOOD/BEVERAGE


I will be eating guacamole (via the above recipe from a Giant Eagle circular). It’s the recipe I always use except I use a food processor because I like it smoother. I also cut the recipe down and use less so it can get eaten before turning brown. You can subsitute regular onions for the red onions, lemon juice for the lime juice and garlic seasoning for the actual garlic if you don’t have those things on hand. Last time I made it I threw in some mushrooms too, which were tasty. Then dip in your tortilla chips and you are set.

I will also be having some type of beer (hopefully with lime flavoring) and some tequila.

These are the looks that ‘I Die’ for this Halloween. Most people would say this is rushing the season but Halloween is my favorite holiday. I decorated for it over a week ago.

I’ve been wanting to be Alice from Alice in Wonderland for years. I don’t know why but I never seem to buy the costume. I even tried on the Miss Wonderland Costume in 2008 but had already bought 2 costumes so I didn’t get it.

Alice

Ultra Sexy Alice Costume, $36

2Pc. Miss Wonderland Costume, $55
Sexy Alice Costume Dress w/ Attached Petticoat, $43
Sexy Blue Alice Adult Costume, $30
Crazy Hour Alarm Clock Purse Costume Accessory, $21

I think that characters from the Disney films are fun. Plus there are so many variations you can be really sexy or really demure. I tried to go as Belle when I was 11 but couldn’t find the costume in my size.

Princesses

Disney Princess Belle Deluxe Adult Costume in Adults Women’s Costumes, $50
Fairy Tale Snow White Adult Costume – Sexy Costumes, $36
Snow White Adult Womens Costume, $90
5 Pc Cinderella Ice Princess, $56

If you want to be very sexy (and you know I often do) these are for you. Jonah Hex was pretty uneven but you know that Megan Fox looked hot (as usual). I also can’t believe that I don’t have a schoolgirl costume yet. This one looks cute and is a one piece so you don’t have to do the whole bare midriff thing or worry about those lame velcro schoolgirl skirts.

Naughty

Jonah Hex Lilah Adult Womens Costume in Costumes Women’s Costumes New…, $55
GI Joe Baroness Adult Womens Costumestumes, $60
Sexy 2pc White, Pink and Black Bunny Plaid School Girl Dress, $45
Lieutenant Lockdown Adult Costume, $57

If you don’t want to feel uncomfortable these are for you. Two are essentially just shirts and the others will keep you warm. I did buy a Merlotte’s tee last year from an eBay seller but it was defective so I still need to pick one up. The ghost costume is so Elizabeth Bathory.

Comfy Costumes

Comfy Costumes by MissEmmaMM featuring volcom shorts

Frochickie Chino Style Short, $31
Ghost Stories Mistress Adult Costume Large – Adult Costumes, $26
Saved by the Bell Kelly Kapowski Student Costume Kit, $45
Buccaneer Beauty Adult Costume, $50
Merlottes Waitress Sookie Stackhouse Costume shirt, $20
Green Poly/Cotton Waist Apron, $2.26
Vampire Bite Makeup Set – Halloween Costume Accessories, $7.99

You know that Jessica Rabbit and Marilyn Monroe were very sexy but there’s something classy (or at least classier than today’s costumes) about them. FYI: Pass on that Betty Boop costume that’s out there. I love her too but I tried it on once & it was ill fitting and unattractive.

The Bombshell

The Bombshell by MissEmmaMM on Polyvore.com

California Costume Marilyn Costume Dress, $40
Hollywood Starlet Dress Costume, $23
Silver Screen Sinsation Womens Costume, $50
Marilyn Monroe Jewelry Set

My mother would probably say I don’t need to buy any of those because I already have all of these costumes. Of course you never ‘need’ a Halloween costume do you? What can I say? I love to play dress up.
