Alexa Penavega is best known for her roles in the Spy Kids franchise and the Machete sequel. Although she wasn’t crowned the champion of Dancing With the Stars – dancing as Kim Boggs makes her a winner in my book. Check out the video for yourself!

Action figure company Kotobukiya is teasing a new Edward Scissorhands themed action figure they will be releasing soon. 

It will be a female version of Edward, in the same vein as their Jason Vorhees and Freddy Kruger gender swaps seen below.

Mad Lib’s (“The World’s Greatest Word Game”) Takes on Edward

Well file this one under something I never thought I’d see (unless I made it myself)! Coinciding with the film’s 25th anniversary last month, Price Stern Sloan published Edward Scissorhands Mad Libs, a simple but fun workbook with 20 mad libs. All you have to do is supply the adjectives, nouns, verbs, and silly words.

Edward Scissorhands Discussed on Seinfeld

The iconic sitcom Seinfeld gave it’s unique take on just about everything pop culture during it’s nine season run from 1989-1998. So, of course in the season 5 episode “The Barber”, Edward Scissorhands was given the Larry David-Jerry Seinfeld treatment. Two colorful barbers, Enzo and Gino, discuss the pros and cons of having razor sharp blades for hands. While one feels that “it’s a beautiful thing”, the other wonders how someone in that condition handles it when nature comes calling. A question that is often pondered by the Edward Scissorhands audience. At the episodes conclusion, Jerry and Gino are seen watching the film and debating the bathroom issue.

BE SURE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR FORUMS AND WATCH THE HILARIOUS SEINFELD SCENE BELOW. IT’S WORTH 5 RANKING POINTS!

Since the 25th anniversary last week, several news outlets have been regurgitating the same information about the movie over and over again. So when I woke up today to a Google Alert containing the following article, I was very pleased.

DazedDigitial.com teamed up with the, well, geniuses at Genius to do an in-depth interview with screenwriter Caroline Thompson, art director Tom Duffield, casting director Victoria Thomas, and costumer designer Colleen Atwood.

What follows is a well-written and very informative piece worthy of the Tim Burton masterpiece itself. Do yourself a favor – and check it out!
