    Ed Wood

    ★★★★½

    After watching ED WOOD, I feel like I kind of have to watch all of the real-life filmmaker's other films besides PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (his biggest "hit").

    Johnny Depp's portrayal of the filmmaker paints him as a wide-eyed dreamer who pushed past every piece of negative feedback ever thrown at him (there was a lot) in order to make his dreams come true and make the kinds of movies he wanted to make. This attitude proves its worth,…

    "I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly."


    My heart is full. Yep. Oh, this movie.
