Share your favorite movies and short films by Tim Burton.
My favorite movie right now is Corpse Bride. The ending was bittersweet, but I loved the film overall (I'm also fond of Victor/Victoria :luff: ). For being a stop-motion film, the animation is smoother than any other that I've seen so far.
My f'avorite short from him is Vincent. It's really creepy, but facinating at the same time.

^ Smorbie, I've never seen Sweeney Todd the film - I'm adding it to my netflix.

My favorite Tim Burton film (I haven't seen them all) is Ed Wood. I also like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow - like the funny take on the afterlife in Beetlejuice and the art direction in Sleepy Hollow.

I hope you enjoy it. It's truly great. But be aware that it is a musical. :lovestruc

Meh - didn't care for Alice in Wonderland. But I did love Ed Wood. Johnny Depp and Tim Burton work quite well together, don't they?

He worked on "The Black Cauldron" as a concept artist and I've always loved that movie.


As for his movies, without a doubt "Nightmare Before Christmas" is my favorite though he only produced, not directed.

But I also really, really enjoyed "9" (again, only produced), "Big Fish", "Sleepy Hollow", and "Alice in Wonderland".


I'm looking forward to his version of "Dark Shadows" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" (only producing on this one, too). They both should be entertaining. :D






I had desperately hoped he would work with Neil Gaiman (or the other way around?, not sure how that works) on "The Graveyard Book", oh well.

My favorites are Batman and Edward Scissorhands. I couldn't choose one of them, since I grew up watching those two movies!

No, Tim Burton had nothing to do with "Coraline".

Where everyone gets confused is that the ads always stated "from the director of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'" and I believe banking on the masses being confused about who that was.

Henry Selick was the director of "The Nightmare Before Christmas", Tim Burton was producer and writer.

Henry Selick directed and wrote the screenplay for "Coraline" with Neil Gaiman's input.


However, Henry Selick and Tim Burton worked on "Nightmare" and "James and the Giant Peach" together which is why it's confusing.

"Coraline" was a great, too, and Henry Selick was hand picked by Neil Gaiman to make his book into the movie.

I love Beetlejuice! But I do have a soft spot for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory too.

To be honest I was slightly disappointed by Alice in Wonderland, but I don't know if that's because I love the original novel, and perhaps the fact that I saw the movie in 3D which I'm not a fan of.

Alice In Wonderland and Nightmare Before Christmas, of course.

I love almost all of them with the exception of Alice in Wonderland.. I also don't expect to like Dark Shadows after seeing the trailer. I loved Sweeney Todd, Batman 1989, Batman Returns, Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, and many others of his, such as Frankenweenie.

Well he's done a lot of good things and I haven't seen all his films but my favourite has to be Peewee's Big Adventure.


Paging Mr. Herman! Mr. Herman, you have a telephone call at the front desk!

Nightmare before Christmas, definitely!!! Heck, I like them all :lol: , especially when Johnny Depp's in the too!
Speaking of Johnny Depp, did anyone else see the ad for the Dark Shadows movie? I thought it sounded good, but that's my opinion...

I really like that Tim Burton movie with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter.
