Here's another classic movie I watched way back in the day and recently felt a need to revisit. It was awesome back then. And it still is!
The Addams family are a morbid bunch of people, yet as they say: weirdness is relative. I'm not sure it's relative, but I guess a slogan along the lines of
weird isn't necessarily bad would just confuse people, cause although the Addams really are weird, they're also honest; caring in their own way. They're a big family and they're one big family: they get along, they look out for each other. They give each other a hand when they need it, or the hand gives them a hand. It, as it is called.
Just a peek into their grimy lifestyle would be enough to make this a great movie, but there is also an elaborate plot to steal their family fortune, incredible mounds of treasure buried deep within the building. Things don't go as planned, of course, and along the way you're taken for a real adventure within and outside the surreal realm of the one and only: family Addams. Despite their differences, the family shows you what a family is all about, and they do the best of any given situation they're in. You wouldn't think such twisted characters would be so easy to relate to, but they are, and it's strange seeing the darkness within each human brought to life as... something good? When you think of a family heritage of psychopaths and ghastly critters, The Addams are quite the odd picture. Great movie.
rated 5/5: friggin awesome
