There's no general Tim Burton thread, so I figured it would be better to just use this one rather than starting a new thread.

Is anyone else looking forward to "The Corpse Bride"? It's a claymation movie directed by Tim Burton, and starring Johnny Depp which is supposed to come out next year. Seeing as how there are alot of Nightmare Boefore Christmas fans here, I thought you guys would be interested. So far, this is all IMDB has about the plot:

"Set in 19th-century European village, Victor (Depp), is lured into the underworld by a mysterious figure (Bonham Carter), while his corporeal wife (Watson) awaits his return."

Personally I think it sounds great, Burton has always been fantastic at telling stories in this style setting (I guess you'd call it somewhat gothic, not to be confused with faggy "conformist" gothic crap).

Wasn't Burton involved in the "James and the Giant Peach" claymation remake?  It definately looks like something he would do.

As for this "The Corpse Bride," it definately sounds interesting to me, and much more "adult" than "Nightmare..."  Of course, I want to see a trailer or something before I make my final decision.  big grin

Oh, and on the poll, I voted for the original Batman.  After recently seeing it on Sci-Fi last night, I remembered how friggin' awesome it really was.

The cast also seems great. They have Johnny Depp, Emily Watson, Albert Finney, Helena Bonham Carter, and the great Christopher Lee. I'm looking forward more to this one than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I didn't think Mars attacks was that bad, it's supposed to be a parody of those 50's and 60's si-fi movies, he must have had that thought in mind when he made it, but it's still not on par with his better works.

The Bumpty Dance is your Chance to do the Bump!

I think his best is Beetlejuice, personally. It's got all the things that make Tim Burton movies good- Dark humor, intriguing visuals,  fun drama, some surprising moments, a great storyline, and exelent acting.
I read online somewhere that they're either remaking Beetlejuice or making a sequel. Hopefully it's as good as the original.

I think his second best would probably have to be Nightmare Before Christmas. It's got all the same qualities Beetlejuice has, and plays them up alot more, too. The reason I chose it as second best, though, is because there weren't any frightening moments. Don't get me wrong, I don't go out of my way to get scared, but I think Burton movies should all have some scarier moments.

What do you guys think?

3. Batman
4. Nightmare Before Christmas
5. Edward Scissorhands

Though to be honest, with the exception of Scissorhands (because it makes me sad), I could interchangeably watch any of those any day of the week and say that whichever one I'm watching at the moment is the best one.

Oh, Edward Scissorhands without a doubt. Danny Elfman's score for that film was incredible and it's hard to hear a Halloween commercial these days without the music being reminiscent of what he wrote. And Vincent Price?! That scene when he brings out the regular hands makes me cry just about every time I watch the movie. If I can revive my ancient iMac from my college days I may be able to retrieve photographic evidence of the Edward Scissorhands costume I made for an ex-beau.

Honorable mention to The Nightmare Before Christmas, mostly because I like to hum the "This is Halloween" song at inconvenient times.

I like most of Tim Burton's work. I love the The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice,  and Batman, they're classics in my opinion. I never got all the fuss about Edward Scissorhands but I do admit it's a good film. I also really liked Sweeny Todd and Corpse Bride. I've never seen Ed Wood for some reason but I'm pretty sure I would love it.

A few of his films I have mixed opinions on. Batman Returns has good and bad things going for it, it kept some of the dark serious tone from the first movie but then also has some of the awkward cheesiness that consumed the horrible Schumacher ones. I didn't care much for Big Fish although I could see what he was going for. And I haven't seen Sleepy Hollow but I hear differing things.

As far as his terrible work goes though, his versions of Planet Of The Apes and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory are soul-shatteringly awful. Alice In Wonderland isn't good either but it's not as bad as those two. I also hear Dark Shadows was another big miss, but I can't confirm that.

I agree with AllEggs that Edward Scissorhands is the best; I love that movie even though it makes me cry every time I watch it. The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice are great, too.

The only movies of his I haven't enjoyed at all are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which I hated, and I really disliked both Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.

Ed Wood is his best film, but only because he didn't direct The Nightmare Before Christmas so it doesn't count.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Edward Scissorhands and Frankenweenie are also absolutely excellent.

Planet of the Apes, Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland suck arse-biscuits, but everything else that he's made has been decent to great.

Overall, I think he's a great director - one of few working who have a genuinely unique voice - and I think a lot of criticisms thrown his way are completely unjust. I mean, using Johnny Depp over and over again? So what? Nobody complained about Scorcese putting De Niro in half of his films or Bill Murray being in everything Wes Anderson makes.

I definitely like Edward Scissorhands, but only once or twice a year. I remember almost the entire story before I even start watching it, probably beacuse I've seen it hundreds of times when I was younger,  so I spoil it for myself almost every time. It's also a little to emotional for me. Don't get me wrong, the emotion is probably the best part of the movie, but it doesn't hit me that hard.
But, still, Eddy is my 3rd or 4th favorite Burton movie, so I love it anyway.

I think the argument is that Johnny Depp is used in the exact same way each time (more so with the 00s movies than the 90s movies) where he's this eccentric out-of-place weirdo who is always the protagonist. When Bill Murray pops up in Wes Anderson movies, he isn't playing the same character (though that could easily be argued). So yeah I don't know why people make that statement and have a problem with it; I think it's more to do with how in recent years Tim Burton has been on auto-pilot and with Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland while they were both visually nice neither had engaging characters and Johnny Depp is used more as a visual set piece than a character and subsequently the movies have been disappointing. Whereas Royal Tenebaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom were all really awesome movies.

And I concur that Ed Wood is his best film but like I said it varies from day to day on which is my favorite.

Over the years Depp has become kind of a scenery chewer (not just in his Burton's films). Even though he's given many great performances in his career, on the basis of the stuff he's done since the first "Pirates" really set the 2000s Johnny Depp formula, I really think he's become one of the most overrated actors of this time. It's just too much "eccentric cartoony oddball" over and over, and always in exactly the same, obnoxious way. (Can you tell I wasn't a fan of Captain Jack?) Compare that to DeNiro, who always gave interesting performances, or Bill Murray, who at 60ish can still induce a huge laugh with barely an utterance (and has picked an eclectic, varied mix of quality roles in his older age). Definitely not the same thing.

As for Burton, I will always maintain that Edward Scissorhands is his best film, which is fitting as I believe it's also his most personal. I'm also a big fan of Sweeney Todd (one of the better 2000s Depp performances), Ed Wood, and the hugely underrated Batman Returns.

About "Charly and the Chocolate Factory":
Initially, Burton wanted to have Marylin Manson to play Mr. Wonka. Who would have like to play the role. Unfortunately, schedule conflicts could not be resolved.
The "Johnny Depp (partly) plays Willie Wonka as he imagined Marylin Mason would have done it" acting aspect is just priceless.
Also, muscial numbers.

Where did you hear that he actually wanted Manson?

I've heard that Manson was really strongly campaigning for the part and did audition for it (along with LOTS of other people such as Robin Williams) but I've never heard anything to suggest that he was actually the directorial favourite.

Planet of the Apes, Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland suck arse-biscuits, but everything else that he's made has been decent to great.

Haven't seen Charlie And The Chocolate Factory I gather? It's by far the movie of his I despise the most...one of the few instances I can really think of where my childhood was definitively ruined. And yet somehow it managed to get great reviews...

I assume you grew up on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn't a bad film if you take it on its own merits and ignore the previous film. It's not as good as the previous film, but it's FAR closer to the book. It's nothing particularly special, but the likes of Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows and Planet of the Apes are downright terrible.

Whereas Royal Tenebaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom were all really awesome movies.

And I concur that Ed Wood is his best film but like I said it varies from day to day on which is my favorite.

Tim Burton's films have a lot of overlapping themes and tropes, but the same is true of most directors - certainly those with a real voice in their work.
I think performances like Sweeney Todd, Willy Wonka and Ichabod Crane have a world of difference between them - it's just that on the surface, he's playing a kooky weirdo in every film, and frankly, that seems to be why people are complaining - they're just making a quick, brash complaint based on a glance at a trailer without any real knowledge of what they're talking about.

I think the complaint would hold more water if I'd ever felt as if Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter had been particularly miscast in his films, but they've always been a logical fit for the part as far as I'm concerned. Bonham Carter was absolutely perfect as Mrs. Lovette and Charlie's mother and even the Red Queen. They're not the problem with Tim's recent films - the terrible scripts are, more than anything, but I think it's easier for a lot of people to just blame what they see on screen.
I did hate Depp's performance as The Mad Hatter, though, but only because the whole thing seemed like a completely half-baked and poorly thought-through attempt to make the colourful character more dark and "gritty". Still, that one performance is an anomaly.

Have to disagree with you completely. Yes I did grow up with the original, which I do love (although I wouldn't say it's a perfect film), but that has little to do with what I hated about Burton's take. I'm aware that it was closer to the source material, but that alone does not necessarily make a better adaptation or even a good movie. I thought Burton's visual aesthetic was way too indulgent and abused CGI far too much, and I thought Johnny Depp gave possibly the worst and most embarrassingly over-the-top performance of his career...which for Depp is saying something. But most importantly, I found all the musical numbers to be downright cringeworthy, just plain atrocious. I think it's a painful film to sit through, which honestly I can't say for Alice. I didn't like Alice but the only part that really made me cringe was the dance Depp does near the end. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory felt like if that one dance was stretched out through the whole movie.

Alice was terrible to me. I hated how much damn CGI was used, first of all. Every single scene had some sort of CGI in it, and heck, most of the characters were full CGI! Honestly, I doubt they used one single real set piece in the filming of this whole movie, as all the backdrops were clearly CGI. And to make it worse, I didn't even find the CGI to be that good. Sure, the Cheshire Cat looked pretty good, but for the most part all of the characters and sets looked clearly fake and extremely cheesy.
Also, for once, I hated how stylized this movie was. Yes, I do love Tim's art style, but everything in this movie was over done! Did the Rabbit really need to have sleep-deprivation eyes? Or did every single set have to be so freaking black?
That's another thing- It was really hard to see things in this movie, at least for me, because it was so dark. Isn't wonderland supposed to be, well wonderful? Wonderful sights, cool colors, and overall a great place to be? Apparently not. This version should have been called Depressionland. Not only for the reasons I previously said, such as the Darkness, but it also seemed like the characters were oddly sad. Alice looked sad the whole time (unless she was having a hissyfit), the rabbit, like I said, looked like it had insomnia, and the two fat little kids looked like they'd been beaten two minutes earlier.
But the worst part, by far, is The Mad Hatter. First of, I'd like to point out that the name of the movie is 'Alice in wonderland', signifying that Alice will be the main character, the one on an adventure. But who's that on the poster? The Mad Hatter! Who's that they're marketing on every advertisement? The Mad Hatter! Who basically is the main character? THE MAD HATTER!! I just don't understand why they put so much emphasis on him, of all characters. They try really hard to make him the show stealer, but what ruins that is the fact that all of his jokes, actions, and lines are utterly stupid. What the hell was the point of the Hip-Hop thing at the end? Was it meant to be funny?!? Well, it sure as heck wasn't, I'll tell you that. Nothing about the stupid Hatter was funny.

.....Rant Over. You may now continue choosing your favorite Burton films. But they better not include this crap festival.

Hmm I'm gonna disagree about The Mad Hatter being the central character in Alice in Wonderland. I think for me, as I remember it because I only saw it in theaters and have no desire to watch it again, it was more like Alice was such a quiet boring non-entity that it felt like The Mad Hatter had a bigger part. I knew the movie was in trouble when Alice first fell down the rabbit hole and is chased by the Jabberwock and she elicits absolutely no emotion about any of it. I don't remember whether or not she was supposed to remember anything that had happened before but she had no emotions about anything in the entire movie and that made her an extremely bland character.

I will concede with the overuse of CGI in both Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, it's how I felt about Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz movie that came out this year. Here are two directors, Burton and Raimi, know for their practical visual style and yet they've both been reduced to an over-saturated use of CGI.

Also I agree with Josh, just because Charlie and the Chocolate Factory may be the better adaptation doesn't mean it's a better movie. I didn't like it and I certainly didn't like Depp's Wonka.

I really don't see what problem anyone could have with the visual style in an adaptation of something as whimsical as a book by Roald Dahl. CGI - fair enough; Burton has been getting lazier and more reliant on CGI in recent years, and it's a shame, because frankly, I thought that all of the practical effects in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory looked great.

But most importantly, I found all the musical numbers to be downright cringeworthy, just plain atrocious.
That's most important to you? The musical numbers only represent something like four songs by the Oompa Loompas (which are straight out of the book, just set to music). They're not as atmospheric and creepy as the Oompa Loompa songs in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but they're not horrendous, musically. In fact, as a fan of Oingo Boingo, I got a bit of a kick out of them. Plus, anyway, they only make up maybe 8 minutes of the film's overall running time. They'd be pretty easy to ignore, surely?

See, I didn't find Alice cringey, I just found it utterly, utterly dull. Which is bad because it's such a high concept that it's sort of crazy that such a film could possibly be so boring. Not to mention how awful half of the actors were (despite usually being great actors) - which was made all the weirder by the other half of the performances were actually quite good.
There was nothing remotely interesting about the film's visuals. It felt like Tim Burton had handed all of his creative duties to an intern. And whilst visuals don't make a film, the story was horrendously bland and barely touched upon the possibilities of what they were doing, which was essentially what would happen if Alice went back to Wonderland as an adult?
I'd say it's very easily his worst film to date, topping Dark Shadows and even topping Planet of the Apes.

To be fair, Oz the Great and Powerful made a huge amount of use of practical effects for such an effects-heavy film in 2013. Almost all of the sets were real (whereas in Alice in Wonderland, everyone was basically just stood in front of a CGI backdrop), almost all of the props were real and there was more use of make-up in places where Alice in Wonderland would have just used characters created entirely out of CGI. I agree with what you're saying to an extent, but at the same time, it's not fair to clump that one in with Alice in Wonderland when Sam Raimi was still making a very clear effort to not just CGI the hell out of everything.

I think it's Ed Wood.  I think Johnny Depp should play more characters based on real people.  He was great as Hunter S. Thompson (Excuse me, "Raoul Duke"  roll eyes ) and Ed Wood.

Batman, Batman Returns, Beetlejuice, Mars Attacks!, Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas and Pee Wee's Big Adventure all bring back childhood memories so it's hard for me to not love every one of them aswell.

Dark Shadows was alright, which is coming from a big fan of the original show.  Alice in Wonderland I liked quite a bit when it first come out but it's gotten less enjoyable with each viewing (although this might have something to do with my friend awkwardly putting his arm around me for the whole movie at a "Putt, Float, Flick").  Big Fish is pretty good, but not great.  I tired of the emotional scene pretty quickly and wanted to go back to the father's stories, but I did like the ending.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is about the same for me as Alice is, minus the PFF story.
