Edward Scissorhands / Top 5 Films of 1990

Twenty-five years ago, the movies gave us Schwarzenegger on Mars, “Best Director Kevin Costner,” and iconic performances like Kathy Bates’ Annie Wilkes, Julia Roberts’ Hooker with a Heart of Gold Vivian Ward, and of course Joe Pesci’s career-defining performance as Harry Lime in HOME ALONE (oh yeah, and GOODFELLAS)... Adam and Josh share their Top 5 Films of 1990, plus a "Blind Cow" review of Tim Burton's cult classic EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.
