I saw Dark Shadows. It was Tim Burton's most disappointing movie since...Alice in Wonderland.
It seems Burton has lost the artistic and quirky edge that made me love such films as, well, of course, Batman and its first sequel, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Mars Attacks!, (hilarious movie, IMO), and Sleepy Hollow. Now it feels like he's trying to milk his own visual style and cinematic trademarks (which literally felt like they said "TM" at the upper right hand corner) for every penny they're worth
Sure, the film is nice to look at -- the production, costume, and makeup design is very lush and the cinematography looks very painterly -- but I found it generally to be a bore, and the overall themes could've easily been printed on a Hot Topic t-shirt. And Danny Elfman's score was surprisingly boring -- he seemed to be self-plagiarizing his far superior Gothic score from The Wolfman.
I think that Burton has fallen into a creative coma -- I think he should part ways with Johnny Depp for a while.
