“Avon Calling…” at a Gothic Castle Overlooking a Candy-Colored Suburban Community

Where to watch Edward Scissorhands

Written and produced by Tim Burton together with co-writer Caroline Thompson, Edward Scissorhands is a visual holiday treat, offering a timeless glimpse into a suburban town heading into the holiday season. The film offers the startling contrast of blocks of square houses in pastel colors and a bob-haired, bespectacled Avon lady ringing musical doorbells all the way up the hill to the gray, gothic castle oddly overlooking the community. In search of a customer for her cosmetics sales, Peg Boggs instead finds a leather-clad humanoid “young man” abandoned in the decaying castle by his father/creator, an inventor who fashioned Edward to be the son he never had but sadly died before he could complete Edward’s hands. Edward’s fingers are long, sharp, scissor blades.

Despite the black leather and razor-sharp blades, kind-hearted Peg sees something in Edward’s soulful eyes and invites the white-faced, black-clad stranger to come to live with her and her traditional American family — because who wouldn’t?

There Edward quickly goes from being the talk of the town to the toast of the town, and then to the town pariah hunted with proverbial torches and pitchforks after he turns down the sexual advances of a desperate divorcee and wins the heart of Peg’s teen daughter away from her popular but cruel-hearted jock boyfriend.

Will Edward and Kim’s love win out over the inevitable clash that comes from being an outsider in small-town America, or will the small-minded neighbors drive Edward back to carving ice sculptures alone in his castle to make Christmas snow float down to the community below?

Edward Scissorhands also stars Winona Rider as Kim, Anthony Michael Hall of The Breakfast Club and 16 Candles as Jim the jock, and Diane Wiest as Peg. In one of the first of the expressionist-style Burton films to win critical acclaim, you could describe Edward Scissorhands as a haunting and romantic revamp of the original, hand-crafted human, Frankenstein, with an enchanting musical score and a deeply emotional performance by Depp.

With the Christmas season already underway, it’s time to revisit the gothic magic of Edward Scissorhands. Though not a traditional Christmas classic, the movie’s snowy ending, as well as the setting of the film’s climatic scenes during the Boggs’ annual Christmas party, made it a seasonal favorite watch for many families for decades. You can enjoy the magic of an inhuman man with more heart than the humans who reject him when you watch Edward Scissorhands, streaming right now on Disney+.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
