    Default Tim Burton

    Who else here loves his movies?

    I've seen six so far: Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, and most recently Sweeney Todd. I'm waiting to see Batman Returns, Ed Wood and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. (What would Burton do without Johnny Depp, I wonder?)

    From the surrealistic sets in Edward Scissorhands to the morbid humor in Sweeney Todd, Burton' best films exhibit an unusual perfectionism that is rarely seen together with such vivid imagination. His habit of working with the same people in varying films (Danny Elfman, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter) adds to the appearance of extreme versatility. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with Alice in Wonderland.

    Pee Wee & Batman are awesome. He gets too..."not my kind of weird" in a lot of the others. I made it about three minutes into Sweeney Todd before I shut it off.

    Beetlejuice is my favorite. I also like Mars Attacks. (Neither of which starred Johnny Depp.)

    And no, I didn't like Planet of the Apes.

    He's possibly my favorite film-maker ever. The fact he uses the awesomely hot, talented Johnny Depp in [six?] films pushed aside--- he's creative. The use of his dark, twisted, yet beautiful imagination seems top-form in just about every film I've seen. I was reeled in by 'Edward Scissorhands'-- one of the most wonderful stories ever told [in my humble opinion ]. I seriously watched the hell out of that movie as a kid and I am loathe to turn it off if I see it being played on TV.

    I've seen quite a few of his films-- I can't seem to pass one up and if I haven't seen one, I make an effort to remedy that [though there are plenty I've yet to see--and some which I liked a little less than others, but still thought of as well-made ]

    My personal list:
    • Pee-wee
    • Edward Scissorhands
    • Batman [first two wasn't it?]
    • Beetlejuice
    • James and the Giant Peach
    • The Nightmare Before Christmas [ftw!]
    • Corpse Bride
    • Sweeny Todd
    • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
    • Mars Attacks!
    • Planet of the Apes


    I'm ashamed that I haven't seen Sleepy Hollow yet, I'm long overdue but I'm sure I'll love it

    SO looking forward to Alice in Wonderland. After Depp's performance as Willy Wonka, I can only imagine his and Tim Burton's rendition of the Mad Hatter

    Does anyone ever wonder why a number of Tim Burton movies have a main character named Edward?

    Maybe he just really likes that name?? Or maybe...he hadn't realized he'd done such a thing until pointed out

    I forgot--adding 'Big Fish' to my list [ADORED it!]

    You have a problem with musicals? What are you, gay or something?
