Odd wording[edit]

It reads: "Although he was a fan of the genre, Burton was surprised that he had yet to do that type of a film," the genre being horror. I believe it's saying that Burton was surprised that he himself had never done a horror film, which seems odd, as the man would know whether or not he had. Unless the "he" refers to someone else, and in that case, whom? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.149.202.97 (talk) 03:48, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Wicca[edit]

The article refers to Crane's Wiccan mother. Wicca is a neopagan religion, which did not exist in 1799 (as Wikipedia's own article states). It would be correct to describe Crane's mother as Pagan, or even better as a Witch (a child of nature, using Crane's own words) 68.221.252.131 (talk) 00:27, 16 September 2009 (UTC)ASC

Ga review[edit]

  • Sleepy Hollow would be released with box office success and critical acclaim. Expand on this slightly, BO international total, Rotten tomatoes % , although keep it simple
  • A proponent of new, eh?
  • Taking a room at the home - reword
  • Please re-upload the images to be less than 300x300 px to qualify as fair use
  • Don't link Entertainment Weekly every mention in the references, add italics for EW in references also
  • IMDB is not reliable
It is when listing Awards and Nominations. But I do agree with other stuff such as trivia, user score, etc. Wildroot 20:33, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Anyone can edit it, so it's not really at all reliable and surely reliable sources can be used. M3tal H3ad (talk) 04:41, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Alphabetize categories
You don't want to do that. That's stupid. When discussing film article you do it as a means to tell the entire thing in chronological order. Wildroot 20:33, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough. M3tal H3ad (talk) 04:41, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
  • became mired in the, and looked pretty much dead, felt the script to be a perfect vehicle for Burton is not encyclopedia language. Will be back later, feel free to disagree and i will copyedit a bit. M3tal H3ad (talk) 10:58, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I copy edited the Development section to give it more of an encyclopedia vibe, formatting dates, lowercase for words etc, diff is here will be back soon. M3tal H3ad (talk) 11:09, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Another copyedit i changed the title from Desine to design, which i presume is what you meant. M3tal H3ad (talk) 12:32, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Following improvements i am passing this as a Good Article, good work. M3tal H3ad (talk) 04:41, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Missing plot[edit]

Why on earth is half the plot is missing, abruptly ended with the note "Will be continued ASAP"? It should have all been written at once; judging by the current length, it would have also needed reducing once finished. Have added a warning tag: If I hadn't lent my DVD i'd have added the rest of the plot myself. JaffaCakeLover (talk) 19:14, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I think someone tried to redo the plot summary. Since this is a Good Article, I suspected that a complete plot summary already existed previously. I found the proper revision and returned the original summary to the current article. Feel free to work with that writeup! Erik (talk | contribs) 19:40, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Discussion pertaining to non-free image(s) used in article[edit]

A cleanup page has been created for WP:FILMS' spotlight articles. One element that is being checked in ensuring the quality of the articles is the non-free images. Currently, one or more non-free images being used in this article are under discussion to determine if they should be removed from the article for not complying with non-free and fair use requirements. Please comment at the corresponding section within the image cleanup listing. Before contributing the discussion, please first read WP:FILMNFI concerning non-free images. Ideally the discussions pertaining to the spotlight articles will be concluded by the end of June, so please comment soon to ensure there is clear consensus. --Happy editing!

Budget[edit]

A new user changed the budget in the infobox from $65 million (which is sourced to the Box Office Mojo page) to $100 million (sourced to the IMDb page). There is a considerable difference between 65 and 100, so we have to wonder which of those figures is accurate. I restored the older number, but we should determine if this is accurate. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 17:45, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

I'll take Box Office Mojo's numbers over IMDB's any day of the week; that said, their page for the movie is currently display 100 million.[1] EVula // talk // // 18:28, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
...and IMDB is saying 65 million now.[2] EVula // talk // // 18:32, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I would lean toward BOM's numbers, as well, and the fact that IMDb's number has since been changed makes me all the more loathe to accept their figures as accurate. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 22:59, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

New century?[edit]

I did not see the movie but the last sentence of the plot ends with (...) just in time for the new century. Since the movie starts in 1799 I assume the "new century" is 1800? If so, it is not yet the new century, the next century will start on January 1st, 1801. Wsw70 (talk) 11:20, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Please do not add unsourced genres to categories or the articles. Per WP:OR, WP:SUBJECTIVE and WP:RS, we need reliable sources backing up genres. Andrzejbanas (talk) 21:58, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
