Tim Burton's Films Have Sucked Since The Turn Of The Century

What happened? Did he get kicked in the head?

BIG FISH in 2003 was fantastic. One of my favorite movies. SWEENEY TODD in 2007 was okay.

He's so inebriated with his "vision" that he can't work his way out of it when needed. Like M. Night Shamadamadingdon but with talent.

Burton has always been about the visual and the screenplays usually suck.

I think he's got a bit of an Anne Rice problem where doesn't allow anyone else to edit his creative vision down a bit to be more accessable to the masses.

We call it a George Lucas problem in film, R4, but yes.

His first Batman was incredible and Edward Scissor-hands was nice. Everything since has just been strange and unsettling.

Sleepy Hollow was great and I still love Mars Attacks. But, even as a fan I say he's been stuck in a rut - pretty much the same stuff over and over again - for a long time.

I've never understood the dislike for Mars Attacks. I thought the movie was hilarious and campy. Even better, the cast seemed to be having a ball making the movie.

He stopped using Winona Ryder, that's what happened. She was the true genius.

Well, do you really need to ask?

R9 = Winona Ryder

Big Fish was a bore, and Sweeny Todd sucked. 21st century = 2001-

"Ed Wood" is his only film that is truly great, and it's the least "Burtonian."
