"Aren't all gingers soulless creatures of the night?"
The video above is a pleasant way to spend 60 seconds, especially if you're goofing off on the Internet at work. It doesn't have anything especially insightful to say, but the actor does a pretty good Johnny Depp impersonation. I think it's also evidence that audiences are getting tired of the shtick generated by the pairing of Depp and Burton, so it's not surprising that the director's next film is going to be Depp-free.
Now, posting anything even remotely related to last year's DARK SHADOWS movie opens up a can of worms that makes me try and avoid the subject whenever possible. That practice isn't entirely fair to the movie's fans, though, many of whom also like the original television series.
Regardless, whenever the film gets mentioned, the wild Internet Asshole sometimes makes an appearance. While population numbers of the Internet Asshole aren't what they used to be (George Lucas cut off their food supply when he stopped making Star Wars prequels a few years back) they can still cause the occasional problem when they wander into civilized areas. Just speaking Tim Burton's name around some DARK SHADOWS fans can incite a virtual flash mob of haters who can't wait to tell spout off about how Johnny Depp is a False Prophet.
I didn't like the movie. If you did, that's that's perfectly alright. Either way, just try to be nice to each other. We're all guests at Collinwood.
