Beetlejuice ~ 1988

18 Sep

Michael Keaton takes this role and creates one of the most zaniest, craziest, kooky characters ever made for film.  He is phenomenal as Beetle-juice. Keaton is an actor that has never been appreciated for his versatility and superb acting skills.

This movie also stars the great Geena Davis, and remarkable Winona Ryder, Alex Baldwin and the forever wonderful Cathrine O’Hara, another under-appreciated star. Jeffrey Jones plays his typical character as he has since Ferris Bueller.

Geena Davis and Alex Baldwin are a couple in love with each other and their simple home town, so much so that when they die unexpectedly they want to remain in their home, however in order to do so they have to call on Beetlejuice to help them out.

Tim Burton directed this Oscar winning film, yes it won a Oscar for best make-up.  It has now become a cult-classic. B+

    I love this movie, I saw it for the first time on Saturdy and I’ve seen it about 8 times 😀 Tim Burton is an idol of mine, he makes THE best movies! I think this one may be his best. I say A+!
