Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

Ed Wood IS the correct answer here.

But this gives me a chance to mention how I think Edward Scissorhands is soooooo overrated. Not only do I think it's overrated, I actually don't even think it's a "good" movie.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

Ed wood gives me wood. Followed by Edward Scissorhands which gets me semi hard.

With the exception of the bolded titles that reads like a list of Tim Burton's worst films. These two love to work together but their track record is awful.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

That just reads like a list of all the films Burton has made since 1990 (though it does exclude two of his worst, Mars Attacks and Planet of the Apes.)

(Which is to say that I don't think the problem is Depp, but rather with Burton's general lack of creativity/storytelling abilities over the last 20 years.)

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

man oh man, Mars Attacks gets such hatred here, I thought it was a riot! I do agree though that 'Planet of the Apes' sucked monkey balls.

Planet of the apes. I love how accurately Johnny Depp managed to portray Marky Mark.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

While I realize it does not star Johnny Depp I will stick up for Mars Attacks! It's probably his best film after Pee-Wee and Beetlejuice.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

I don't much like Pee-Wee or Beetlejuice either - I don't dislike them like I dislike some of his later films, but I won't be unhappy if I never see them again.

I think the early 90s were by far his most artistically successful period, with only two or three decent or good movies since then.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

Sleepy Hollow by a long mile, though I have not seen Dark Shadows yet.

Sleepy Hollow is my wife and I's go to "Scary" Halloween movie.

Ed Wood. I used to watch that a lot as a kid, got pissed when it was loaned to family friends and we never got it back!

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

The Ed's get top spot... Ed Wood then Edward Scissorhands. I cherish my re-called first print of that DVD.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

I think Mars Attacks is vomitously bad. It's only topped by Alice In Wonderland, which has been known to give children rickets.

And my favorite Tim Burton film is still Batman Returns.

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

Edward Scissorhands, then Ed Wood, then Sleepy Hollow. After that, it's all hacky. I remember once when Burton made some joke about the Harry Potter films all being the same - kind of a fair point, but those that live in glass houses...

Re: The Best Burton/Depp film

Ed Wood is oddly enough his straightest and most pure film. Sleepy Hollow is a close second.

I'll also give a shoutout to Mars Attacks, which I find hilarious and quite underrated.
