"I'll Miss You When I Wake Up" Tim Burton's Alice...
I can’t say I’m a Tim Burton fangirl. I don’t drool over his designs and I certainly do not have a crush on Johnny Depp. I do love a lot of his earlier work (Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, and Ed Wood mostly) but lately his work seems to drown under its own hype and fans. Corpse Bride was a major disappointment (at least for me) as an attempt to recapture the wonder and cult...

Response to @disparatefutures
Hi @disparatefutures, sorry I couldn’t find a better way to respond to your comments. First, it’s kind of hard responding to a critique of a film without having seen the film in question. So, your response is valid but doesn’t reflect the reality of the film. Of course Scott is immature, I never disputed that. But just because you have a childish lead, doesn’t mean you need...
Your friend and mine, Mark Kermode, gives his top five and bottom five films of the year so far. Interesting that Inception was at the top of his list…
Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Disappointment
I’m a fan of Scott Pilgrim, I really am. I know, he’s kind of a shitty guy, but Bryan Lee O’Malley always managed to convince you that he really was an ok person. Even when he was acting like an idiot. And that right there was the heart of the Scott Pilgrim series of comics. You may be a twenty something with no money, no job, a crappy band, and list of poor relationships, but...
The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974)
I kicked of Herzog-fest by watching Kaspar Hauser, or as the German title translates Every Man for Himself and God Against Them All. So, you know, a feel good film. After watching it, I was told by one of my friends that he thought it was the scariest movie he’d ever seen. I didn’t agree initially, but then I’ll be the first to admit that existential horror was never really my...
Well well, Mr. Nolan →
I’m still on the fence about Inception, but I have to say that this was a pretty clever move on the part of the director and composer. Of course, what is a film these days without a few little gimmicky easter eggs, but I like that this actually is pertinent to the plot rather than just serving as fodder for the fans.
theprisoner-deactivated20101112 asked: Hi Abby, I like your site, found you on Totalfilm. So what's your fav film of all time & why?
Yesterday I was baffled by the number of new followers that Abby Love Film seemed to acquiring. I couldn’t figure it out, how’d I go from 3 hits the day before to 87? Well, it was the good folks over at TotalFilm.com who included me in a list of the 100 Best Tumblr Film Blogs. Rad! I just wanted to say hello to all my new readers and remind you that I’m happy to take questions on...
Encounters with Herzog?
It has recently come to my attention that I have seen very little of Werner Herzog’s body of work. Since I have a fondness for documentaries and Germans, this seems to be a pretty big oversight. Listed are this film that are immediately available for me to watch. Chronologically? Documentaries? Greatest Hits? Help me out Features: Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972) The Enigma of Kaspar...
