Lili's thought for the day

OMG! Depp and Burton are doing a remake of my all-time favourite movie! If any team could pull it off, it would be this team, but WHY, WHY, WHY, do they feel the need to tamper with perfection? Does Johnny Depp seriously think he or any actor on the planet could be the equal to the late Vincent Price in any lead role? I'm sorry, there was and only ever will be one Vincent Price, and the role of The Abominable Dr Phibes was his role, and I'm convinced that the Dr Phibes character could only be understood by an actor with his intelligence and professional skill.

Don't wait for the remake, get a copy of the original and enjoy, and there's a sequel too. Don't forget to suspend any prejudices that you might have against horror movies. In the 20th century horror movies were often great movies.

Memorable fictional characters portraying autistic traits or themes

I am 100% with you here, Ma'am. Doctor Phibes is _scary_. And also, funny. That was the genius of Vincent Price.
