I Feel "Sleepy"

By Wyatt Earp | September 3, 2005

(Relax, Hessian; it’s nothing to lose your head over!)

One of the goals of my weekend (sans family) was to catch up on some DVD’s I haven’t yet seen. The first on my list was 1999′s Sleepy Hollow, which was directed by one of my faves; Tim Burton. Burton’s creepy take on the Washington Irving tale stars Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane, the lovely Christina Ricci as Katrina Van Tassel, and the legendary Christopher Walken as The Headless Horseman.

Okay, why the hell am I reviewing a six-year old movie??? Cripes, I need to get out more often!

Since most of you have probably seen the film, here are a few things that caught my attention:

  • The Star Wars Connection: Three SW alums are in the film; Christopher Lee (aka Count Dooku), Ian McDiarmid (aka Emporer Palpatine), and Ray Park (aka Darth Maulwho was the fight double for The Horseman).
  • Johnny Depp: This guy is fast becoming the most versatile actors in the industry. Like Jimmy Stewart and Tom Hanks, Depp appears to be able to play any role.
  • Christopher Walken: I frakkin’ love this guy! End of message.

    Wyatt. Did you notice Tim Burton’s fetish with Depp and gadgets? Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Willy Wonka … ?

    Depp is a Frog (i.e. French) by choice.

    Insol – I did, and I am scared.

    CUG – True, but he’s still a great actor. As long as he sticks to the script, I’m okay with him.
