1 Tim Burton is like a one-trick pony to me. Can he not make a whacked out, quirky and obscure film? I mean, yeah, the remake of Planet of the Apes was that moment. Then it just went back to Buron's usual ways. I mean, it's not like I hate everything he's made, but the stuff he's made are just more excuses for Hot Topic to make merchandise out of. He really did fail at the Chocolate Factory remake, though. Sorry, Burton, but your mystique doesn't cut the masterpiece Gene Wilder partook in. -- Submitted By: () on March 31, 2015, 7:06 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Tim Burton has always made some rather quirky movies, and although his more recent movies are more hit-and-miss 9not to mention more remakes), I still think he's a good director. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 29, 2010, 8:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I don't care for Burton's movies in general, but I thought he nailed it with the Planet of the Apes remake. He took some creative liberties (but not nearly as many as the 1960s "Apes" movie series), but overall he did fine. As for the "nonsensical ending," you'll have to dig up Pierre Boulle (the author of the original Planet of the Apes book) and take it up with him, because that's the way HE ended the story. As for Burton's BTF moment, I'd have to say it was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not only was the movie a snoozer, but it was also a highly questionable creative decision to have Depp as Wonka bear such a strong resemblance to Michael Jackson. Since MJ at that time was all over the news for child molestation charges, it just came off as creepy. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 11, 2010, 10:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I can see where people might not like some of the movie remakes Burton has done, but still, the guy is great at making movies. Never Boned -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 11, 2010, 8:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Tim Burton made great movies in the past like PeeWee's Big Adventure, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, and more. However, when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came along, I heard the Jaws theme. I can't put my finger on when he boned exactly, but I knew it already happened when I saw Alice in Wonderland. It starred Johnny Depp as the worst depiction of the Mad Hatter that I ever saw in my life. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 9, 2010, 8:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 For me, I would say it was Planet of the Apes. I don't know what he was thinking trying to remake something so iconic. And that nonsensical ending! Actually, I should have known what was coming with his previous work, Sleepy Hollow. Hollow was so predictable by-the-numbers Burton. Johnny Depp? Check. Mess up the character's background to make him more "goth" and "edgy"? Check; instead of a teacher he's now a mortician. White makeup to make the already white cast even whiter? Check. I laughed when I saw the posters for Alice in Wonderland that had Johnny Depp in whiteface and wisely avoided it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 8, 2010, 4:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
