Christmas Movie Trailer Week: Edward Scissorhands

Long before Tim Burton was a hollowed out shell of himself, he actually made good movies...good, quirky movies that felt helmed by an auteur.  Burton had a voice, and an aesthetic, and some recurring themes addressed in all of his films.  And he actually made a couple of near-flawless classics in his early career as well ("Beetlejuice" and "Ed Wood," i'm looking in your direction), but my very favorite will probably always be 1990's "Edward Scissorhands."  It finds Tim Burton at his Tim-Burtoniest, has one of the most amazing film scores ever put to tape, courtesy of Danny Elfman, and it takes place at Christmas.  Watch the trailer below.
