Sunday’s movie pick: Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice review.

If you’re looking for a film that’s both hilarious and a visual feast for the eyes, Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice is the movie for you! This 1988 comedy is a must-watch, with a star-studded cast that includes Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis.

The film follows the story of Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin), a couple who die and find themselves haunting their own house, which has been taken over by the Deetzes, a family of New York yuppies who have given the place a postmodern makeover. The Maitlands try to scare the Deetzes away, but their efforts are in vain, and that’s where Beetlejuice, comes in.

Michael Keaton steals the show as the manic and lecherous Beetlejuice, and the film is a visual treat, with eye-popping interiors and costumes that make the living world as outlandish as the afterlife. Burton’s gothic sensibility is on full display, and his headful of ideas makes this film one of his best.

Overall, Beetlejuice is a timeless classic that’s both charming and hilarious, full of visual invention and snappy comedy. It’s a time capsule of the 1980s and a testament to Tim Burton’s talent as a director.

Tune in to this Sunday to catch Beetlejuice on Channel 5 at 18:05 CET.
