Bad acting, bad special effects, bad script, bad direction and very bad
editing. Was there any reason to make this movie?
John Astin had his approach on Gomez. Raul Julia, instead of playing Astin's Gomez, made a character of his own. But not Tim Curry. No. Maybe not his fault, after all. This was supposed to be Julia's third installment as Gomez, had he not died. The "producers" may have been obsessed with the idea and wanted Julia's Gomez, anyway. Curry imitated Julia's Gomez and payed poor homage to his predecessor.
Darryl Hanna as Morticia? Back in the day, I thought a blonde was a stupid choice for playing the character, but back then I didn't know Carolyn Jones was a redhead herself. Hanna would have been an average Morticia, if it hadn't been for the wig shifting places above her head. Sometimes her forehead looks so big, its creepier than the Addamses.
An advice for the guy playing Fester: "There is such a thing as OVERACTING".
The Wednesday girl tried so hard to be creepy, that her acting career is over.
Pugsly was OK, if you don't count on his excessive baggage.
A bad movie overall. Even for a TV movie.
Sorry for the people who bought it on VHS.
I think Elileen, here, has her award ceremonies mixed. I have this particular chow on a BETA tape I would watch several times as a teenager (I was the lamest teenager, I know). I only had this show recorded, and the next one. I remember Lucille Ball standing there with Bob Hope, the two Bonds (Connery and Moore) with Michael Caine, the thing with Martin Short and Princess Leia and Robin Williams dressed as a "Big Rat". This year was important for it was the advent of a new era. We now go to the movies and everything is CGI. Hollywood had already toyed with computer effects on movies like Tron (I like it!) or The last starfighter (kind of dumb), but with Willow the era of digital cinema was born. For the first time computer graphics and effects looked real (or at least, credible). We had a good witch, Raziel, who could transform herself into practically every creature imaginable. So, ILM gave birth to a then new technique called the Morph. If you want to see how it was done optically (before digital cinema) you only have to see Krull, from 1980. There, Ergo the magician had the same power exactly complete with the mess-up transformations. Anyway, Willow, for such a breakthrough, it was only nominated for Sound effects editing and best visual effects at the Oscars. I think Die hard got the award.
