Two wives...

new york seemed bombed with ads for the new movie with johnny depp; dark shadows. at first i didnt even recognize him and thought it was for some weird tv series or whatever. i like johnny depp (the rum diaries was great! i guess that was his latest), but this one does not particularly interest me, certainly not after seeing this advertisement, or when tim told me it is about some vampire that is set free. but... its with johnny depp... so, i just looked it up, and even watched the trailer, and it might be quite funny! besides, its from tim burton, so his wife helena bonham carter is in it too, and these 3 people usually make for great movies, or at least interesting... (someone once mentioned johnny depp being the second wife of tim burton, which seems sort of true... :D).
this year we havent gone to the cinema much, which is unusual, but there is really nothing interesting playing. this one comes out in may, so i need to have a little patience...
oh, and now i see that originally dark shadows was indeed a tv series, playing during the end 60s, beginning of the 70s. the actor who played the vampire in that series just died april 13th (a friday), at the age of 87...
in boston we have horrible weather right now; heavy wind and rain (since hours already)...

I am not a fan of Johnny Depp, most of his movies i just don't like, BUT I saw the trailer for this movie and I also think this might be a really funny movie :-) I will definitely go there, as you, I haven't been much to the movies this year, usually we go see a movie every week....
Here the rain has gone (for now) how are things on your end?

I don't go to many movies but I'll probably go to this one. Yesterday I saw a bus stop ad with the picture of Helena Bohham Carter on it. If the movie looks as good as the ads it might be OK.

if you like johnny depp, go see the rum diary. it's brilliant.

Johnny Depp is one of those actors who's just fascinating to watch. I guess Dark Shadows and Run Diaries are going to be on my list.

Hmmm, vampires have been done to death. I think I'll give this one a miss...

Dark Shadows was a horribly done soap opera in the 70's and I loved every minute of it!
