Home?
I have no home.
Hunted, despised, living like an animal.
The jungle, is my home.
And I will show the world that I can be its master!
I will perfect my own race of people, a race of atomic supermen, which will conquer the world.
Hahaha.

Look at that.
Can you make that sound good?
I rest my case.

Sweeney Todd is my favorite Tim Burton movie though. I know all of the dialogue and songs by heart.
Yeah...

Before watching the video: Peewee's Big Adventure, end of discussion.

Yeah...

Sweeney Todd, loved that film. I was like: "Musical? Err, no thanks" Then I saw it on DvD at a friends house.... :3

Objectively speaking, I'd say Ed Wood or Edward Scissorhands are his finest films. You can tell there is a degree of personal affinity for those characters involved which his other work cannot quite match.

My personal favourite, however, would have to be Batman Returns. Thematically the most interesting of his catalogue, not least because of the inspired biblical inflections and Catwoman acting as an agent of third-wave feminism.

P.S

That said, this video series is pretty obnoxious.

D.S

I think Batman is disappointed here.

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

My personal favorite is Batman, with Sweeney Todd is second. Have been meaning to check out Ed Wood for some time just to see what all the fuss is about though.

I don't know why people are so mean about Tim Burton :(
I personally like his film.

I know you guys like to screw around, but if you had even considered bringing up Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I would've had to GTFO.

It has been a long time since I watched Big Fish, but I remember liking it.

oh wait I remembered something I didn't quite like, it has a young miley cyrus. Her role is very small, but it is one of those things that once you see it you always notice.

I must agree, if a grown man can watch Big Fish and now shead a single tear, he has no soul.

Big Fish is hands down my favorite Tim Burton film. It has his style without being another Beetlejuice clone. And it's just a feel-good movie.

It manages to be both completely sad, and happy at the same time.

But Beetlejuice and Batman would be close behind....

Well... I don't like all of Tim Burton's work by a long shot, but I think you guys are being just a tad harsh on him.

I find your ruling invalid, Big Fish wins every time and not crying to it means you are Satan.

"Ed Wood" is one my favorite movies of all time, let alone those by Tim Burton. Sweeney Todd comes in a close second

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

This for sure!

Although, if these are the two i have to choose from, Big Fish unfortunately (cause it's a good movie) get immediately disqualified for stealing 'Edward Scissorhand's' soundtrack.

OH THANK GOD. More people who understand that Nightmare Before Christmas is NOT HIS MOVIE. I've been threatened with violence for correcting people on that point.

I seriously love this series. It's like an argument I'd have but with pictures to get the point across. I haven't seen either of those Tim Burton movies so I'll withhold judgement.

POWER PUFF GIRLS! Woo! I freely admit I used to watch and enjoy that show.

I really liked Mars Attacks, and the Batman movies were quite enjoyable. Planet of the Apes was worth a watch, even if it wasn't spectacular.

By far, my favorite is Beetlejuice. Seriously, best Tim Burton movie EVER. Go watch it right now!

i always preferred edward scissorhands, but then again, i was something of a loner, so I associated well with it.

I must agree that Ed Wood is the best. But that's mainly because I am a fan of Ed Wood as it is.

I forgot how many great films Tim has made. I have to agree that Ed Wood is the best though.

And I didn't cry during big fish.

I really really enjoyed Tim Burton's Hot Topic, you know the one scored by Danny Elfman. It was an alright film but all the merchandising made it worthwhile.

In all seriousness though I'd have to pick either Batman or Beetlejuice as my favorite, hell those are my favorites because I haven't liked anything else by him.

I can't really decide which one I think is the best. I mean, I loved Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sweeney Todd, and so on and so forth. I can't really say which one was the best, cause while they all have the same Burton-esque tone, they all are unique in their own way, which makes it hard to compare them.

big fish...

I agree with this a thousand times.

It's showtime!

Anyways, Big Fish is actually my favorite Tim Burton film, since Nightmare before Christmas is NOT a Tim Burton film (It was directed by Henry Sellick, Burton only produced). Big Fish is just so surreal and awesome.

BATMAN.

I think Sweeny Todd is one of the finer films he has made, he added his touches to the story without straying away from it too far. Although some of the more revealing parts of the plot(a couple songs) didn't make it into the film, you can still get most of the plot twists.

corpse bride.

There, I said it. It was fun, awesome and actually made me laugh.

...I did love James and the giant peach.

Ed Wood easily, I didn't like Big Fish at all. Besides George the Animal Steele is in Ed Wood.
...and cut! Print. That was perfect!

For me, it's a three-way tie between The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, and Sweeney Todd.

I'm sorry, but if Burton usually produces fruit strip gum then Ed Wood is the stick of 6 year old Double Mint that he pulled out of his grandmother's purse.

Maybe it is just because I saw it when I was young and was bored out of my mind, but it was not my favorite flavor.

I prefer my movies to be like Orbits, sure it's a big name, but it is consistently good and I feel better after having experienced it. Spielberg gum.
