Edward Scissorhands 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

Blu-ray is the perfect format for Tim Burton’s surreal original vision. The bright pastel colors of Burton’s warped image of suburbia makes Edward Scissorhands shine in high definition. His more trademark gothic images of the castle show off detailed textures and shading in the gray walls.

Edward Scissorhands already had a Blu-ray but now it’s been remastered in 4K. It always looked good, but I think the difference is apparent in the latter half of the movie. Once Edward’s story starts getting dark, as Burton stories tend to do, a lot of the negative events occur at night. With less light illuminating the shots, the 4K edition is able to hold on the foreground and keep the background a crisp black void.
