Everybody who loves watching movies knows who the fuck is Tim Burton. He’s the genius behind the so-called revolutionary pseudo-goth visual filled movies like Batman, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Ed Wood, and lots other. He got millions of fans. His movie made millions of dollar. Every single one of his movie is distinctive, unique, and quirky, in a good way, enough at visual department. But is he sucks? Is he overrated?
Yes, IMO Tim Burton is a glorified production set designer who doesn’t deserve the status as a visionary and shouldn’t be allowed near a movie set and his lover, Johnny Depp, ever again.
Burton makes 4 great movies. Batman, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, and Mars Attack!(I consider Mars Attack good because it doesn’t take itself seriously. Its a fuckin’ weird campy nightmare parody. People should realize and get that).
A bunch of mediocre ones like Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns and Bettlejuice.
And the rest of his movie is suck, soul less, and idiotic. Why? Because every script in all those movie is incoherent and filled with unimaginative character and story. Its like Burton only care for how gothic and emo Depp and his wife look in the screen, but rarely give a single fuck about what his character said or did. Burton need to fucking realize that a great visual style does not transform the movie to a pleasant journey for the viewer. He’s not David Lynch, who always literally decided to punish his Audience, but at cared about every single detail from the story of his movie, even sometimes it doesn’t make sense. In Tim Burton case, it doesn’t meant that I don’t understand or confused by the story, but its just felt STUPID. Burton is not a bad director, he’s just over overrated. Tim Burton is a motherfucking visual genius. I admit that. However, the vast majority of his movie are not hurt by being put on mute.
