    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Alice in Wonderland made me loose hope in Tim Burtons Ability to Direct...

          I remember watching the tv series when I was a kid. This should have been gothic. This looks horrible with the makeup. Another Burton skinker like Alice Wonderland.

              @rufio Its not that i didnt like those films, its just that they seemed to be over the top in his wacky style but lacking in heart. That is not the norm for Burton but i agree with @dan1 i like his non wacko roles too. The movies mentioned like Blow, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Donny Brasco along with Whats eating gilbert Grape, Benny & Joon, Nick of Time and The Ninth Gate also come to mind.

              However, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hallow (awesome burton movies) and Fear and Loathing are wonderful wacko roles that never get old.

                @Scruffnutz89 beautiful was the first couple films. now he's his own burton cliche. his style is his own genre and he never steps out of it. so much, in fact, that no matter what the story many of his movies all look the same. alice in wonderland looked like charlie and the chocolate factory looked like Nightmare Before Christmas looked like Beetlejuice looked like Edward Scissorhands (which, in my opinion, was one of his better films). there is something to be said for having vision and a unique sense of storytelling, but burton uses the same cast and effects every film (now rendering him more creepy than visionary or creative). even man-boy Michael Bay switches stuff up a little from time to time.

                      @Salem6777 -- Really? That's kind of low - It wasn't all that good, but it wasn't terrible either. Have you watched the other films Tim Burton made? You may want to change your statement if you have.

                              Like the look. Hate the fact that it's a vampire though.

                                looks more like michael jackson to me, but whatever. i'm not really excited about this movie to begin with. i'm sick of the whole burton/depp thing.

                                    I have serious respect for Depp for taking roles like these. Serious (or what you guys are calling "normal") roles will always be there for the taking but the man chooses to step into unfamiliar roles that only reinforce how versatile of an actor he is. When hollywood loses all creativity to CGI he and Burton will be remembered for bringing our imaginations to life ( and Pixar =P).

                                    I'm not crazy about the guy, nor have I seen half of his Burton films. I just give the guy credit for doing what most choose not to do.

                                          @rufio I typically like his non-weird roles better. Donnie Brasco, Blow, Once Upon a Time in Mexico (though he was kinda weird there).
