Is Edward Scissorhands a Christmas movie? Possibly not, but it features snow, Christmas trees and an underlying air of sadness, which makes it close enough for us to crowbar Tim Burton's melancholy classic into our annual festive mini-season.
This week, long-time friend of the show Paul Hawkins from Blokebusters joins us to discuss Winona Ryder's old lady voice, Dianne Wiest's questionable parenting methods, whether it's still OK to appreciate Johnny Depp's legitimately brilliant performance in this movie and more...
As usual, we also spend some time brainstorming potential sequel ideas, including Edward's long-overdue trial for the murder of Anthony Michael Hall, an origin story that brings together two classic Tim Burton properties and a crossover that attempts to explain some of the more... eccentric design choices in the original movie...
Every week on Beyond The Box Set, two creative movie geeks compete to pitch sequels, prequels and spin-off ideas for classic standalone movies. We're almost 100 episodes deep and we have no intention of slowing down, so dive in for the only Podcast (that we know of) to combine classic movie chat with hilarious, frequently unfilmable fan fiction.
We release a new episode ever Friday morning, so please hit subscribe to ensure you never miss an episode. We also really appreciate ratings and reviews, which really help us to attract new listeners.
If you're a super fan of the show, you can also show your appreciation by supporting our Patreon for as little as $2 per month. As a special thank you, we'll give you access to our weekly movie review bonus show Beyond BTBS, the opportunity to select a movie for us to discuss on a future episode of Beyond The Box Set, a regular 30 second promo slot and more.
