#19. Tim Burton Ranked List
There are no absolutes in film opinions, but looking at the poll for Tim Burton it seems most agree his recent output isn't as good as his early work. I thought he was bulletproof until Mars Attacks!, one of the most depressing nights at the cinema I've ever had. There would be worse to come, like Alice in Wonderland, another of my most depressing cinema experiences.
Some believe Burton made a comeback with Big Fish. I thought it was a load of crap - in the case of a scene involving an elephant, literally - but I do think the old Burton resurfaced in Sweeney Todd.
As for what to watch, I haven't seen Big Eyes or Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and I've been interested in both. I also learned Burton directed Hansel and Gretel (1983) as a Halloween short for the Disney Channel, and there's a 1986 episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents called "The Jar" that sounds interesting.
