Friday: ‘Edward Scissorhands’

[IMG:L]Edward Scissorhands — 8/7c, 10/9c, Midnight/11c on Fox Movie Channel

Ostensibly, Fox Movie Channel is airing Scissorhands thrice tonight to coincide with Sweeney Todd, released in theaters today.

So why not follow FMC’s lead, assuming you go see Sweeney, and have yourself a Johnny Depp/Tim Burton double feature of sorts?

The 1990 cult favorite marked the beginning of a perfect match for the cinematic soul mates, and it continues to this day–literally.

Scissorhands, in which Depp plays the shear-digited title character who falls for the girl (Winona Ryder, his then real-life girlfriend) in plastic suburbia, is, after all, the most like Sweeney Todd of all Depp/Burton collaborations. (At least it is tonight, since Sleepy Hollow isn’t on!)

Of course, you can’t go wrong with Scissorhands as a non-double-feature standalone, either.
