I was eight when I saw "Nightmare Before Christmas" in theaters, and I have been a Burton fan ever since. His creativity knows no bounds.

I think I was like, three when The Nightmare before christmas came out, haha but nevertheless I saw it in theatres 7 or so times (to my fathers dismay!) and have loved the movie to this day ( I can still be caught singing the songs in the shower )

As for the newer stuff, The Corpse Bride really disappointed me as did Planet of the Apes and the new Charlie and the Cholcolate Factory.

I did love Sweeny Todd though, and I am a huge Helena Bonham Carter fan.

Saw Alice in Wonderland on opening night ( my boyfriend had to work some magic to get those tickets, it definitely wasn't an easy feat!) and I must say I was a little disappointed. The 3D was cool, and Johnny did an awesome job as the Mad Hatter but I thought it would be a little darker and the Jaberwocki scene was a little anti-climactic. I thought the actors did well, but I think the hype surrounding the film was a little too much and perhaps made my expectations a little too high.

I agree about the Corpse bride and Charlie and the chocolate factory. I did like the visuals in the Corpse bride, but the story, not so much. The nightmare before christmas and sleepy hollow will always hold a special place in my heart. :love:

I watched Beetlejuice for the first time in a while tonight. It's interesting to see Tim Burton's style grow from the late '80s-early '90s to the films we know him best for today. One of the changes I can see is that his work has gotten much darker and less whimsical. Beetlejuice is mostly just funny with a few wacky effects, whereas everything he does now is very, very dark and the humor is mostly in the hands of the actors who portray the roles, not in the writing. I'm not suggesting this is a bad thing, just an interesting thing to notice in any artist's style over time.
