Default Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Just saw this today at my moms house after a few years. Gotta say I loved it, great atmosphere, totally believable as the 1700s. Great kills, good acting and Christopher Walken!

Eh. It was ok. Not my favorite Burton film, really. It did have it's great points and Walken, as always, was awesome.

5/10 from my point of view. *shrugs*

It looked good and was acted well. It just didn't do much for me. I've only seen it once though, so maybe with repeated viewings I will appreciate it more. As of right now though, its meh.

I hated Sleepy Hollow. I was so psyched for that movie. Directed by Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken ... I honestly didn't see how this movie could miss. I love all of Tim Burton's movies (except Sleepy Hollow) and I've never seen a movie starring Johnny Depp that I didn't like (until Sleepy Hollow). Christopher Walken never ceases to crack me up ... and I have to say I did enjoy him in this movie, but he wasn't in it enough. When I walked away from this movie I felt like I had been ripped off. Not of my money, because at that time my brother worked at a movie theater and I saw all the movies for free, but I felt as if the world had been robbed of the version of Sleepy Hollow that could have, and should have, been made.

Maybe I hated it because I had such high expectations of it. It's very possible the movie isn't as bad as I remember it was. I should watch it again just to see. Now that I think it's a peice of crap, it might actually surprise me if I watch it again.

I don't see anything wrong with it. How could it have been better in your opinion?

Quite honestly I can't elaborate much. I barely remember the movie at this point. I just remember hating it and I quickly forgot most of it because I was so unimpressed. I remember hating Christina Ricci in that movie, and I normally like her. I remember thinking a lot of the CGI was crap, and I remember thinking Christopher Walken should have had a bigger part. I remember not liking some of the plot changes, I think Depp was way too ballsy to be Ichabod Crane. Crane was supposed to be a sniveling wimp ... aside from that, I'd have to watch it again to be more specific. And like I said, if I watched it again, I may like it better.

I agree. Ichabod Crane was supposed to be a wuss. Not fly-ass Johnny Depp. (forgive me Johnny!)

Been awhile since i've seen hollow, but I definitely dug it. It was simple and to the point, with some creepyness and gore thrown in to round it out. Not to mention, it had walken fucking bitch's up (espectially that casper van dien fuck).
