Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Beetlejuice was what I chose but it is so difficult with Burton.  Although I hate (absolutely loathe) the remake of Planet of the Apes and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I am right there with you on both of those.  Yuck!
I wish he hadn't done them.  It breaks my heart cause I love him so much.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

I am scratching my head about Pee Wee.  I did not know that was Burton.
I went with Sleepy Hollow, tho Beetlejuice is close.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

I think sleepy hollow was the perfect vehicle for burtons gloomy demeanor.

now edward scissorhands was great for they more dreamy-fantasy aspect of his style, the only film of his i hated was planet of the apes.

Reviving this thread and going 'No!!' lol

I love Burton, his ethereal style, his gothic charm he really has a special magic he brings to the screen. His approach to the movies is so different from the usual and I love him for it. No way am I doing the poll because I cannot choose, it is between Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, and Mars Attack. Can't choose a particular one so I cannot vote lol. I love my Burton magic big_smile

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Hands down Sweeney Todd, Batman and Batman Returns

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

I think Mars Attacks is his classic. What a ficken parody.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

i honestly can't choose between Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks or Sweeney Todd but if you twisted my arm i'd go for Edward Scissorhands. tough choice though, i love his films never seen Big Fish but the only one of his i dislike is the planet of the apes remake, why oh why did he do that?

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Edward Scissorhands, no question at all.  If I could find the video, I would have posted it but there used to be a fanvideo on Youtube which was clips of Edward Scissorhands with the song Strange & Beautiful by Aqualung and it was the perfect song to describe a perfect character (and Johnny Depp has never been more beautiful than in this film). smile

EDIT: For those not familiar with the song, I found the video on another site big_smile

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Tim Burton is awesome. I voted Batman

But some of my other favorites of his are: Edward Sizorhands, Marz Attacks, Batman Returns, and Beetlejuice. I love A Nightmare Before Christmas as well, even though it wasn't availbale for a vote.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

I went with "Edward Scissorhands" ...

I have to admit as a kid, I wanted to KILL Anthony Michael Hall for messing with my boo-bear, Edward.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Hands down Sleepy Hollow .. One of my faves.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Sleepy Hollow with Edward Scissorhands a close second.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

A toss up between Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice.

I am with you on that one!

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Sleepy Hollow. 

The original Sweeney Todd is better.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Voted for Sweeney Todd, but it's hard to say between that one, Big Fish and Planet of the Apes. Or Batman Returns....
Anyway, I was surprised that Sleepy Hollow has 11 votes, I think that's one of his worse films.

Re: Favorite Tim Burton directed non-animated film???

Sweeny Todd roll If I never see it again it will be too soon , I love Beetle juice , but Edward scissor hands has my vote big_smile
