    My Quick Burton Takes

    Edward Scissorhands - Dated but Solid by Burton Standards
    Ed Wood - Maybe Burtons best
    Beetlejuice - Solid
    Corpse Bride - no opinion...have yet to see
    Mars Attacks! - Crap
    Pee-Wee's Big Adventure - Solid...PeeWee and Burton pair well with the Quirk factor
    Planet of the Apes - Crap...maybe his Crappiest
    Big Fish - Watchable and interesting
    Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street - Interesting but uneven
    Sleepy Hollow- no opinion....never saw-reviews from colleagues were not kind
    Batman - Most Overrated Hollywood Movie Ever- only nicholson makes it worthy
    Batman Returns - Without a Doubt the Crappiest- I swore off all things Batman until the latest incantation of movies which are by far the best Batman movies ever
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- easily in the crap fest top 3
    Alice in Wonderland - interesting....in with Big Fish-not brilliant but worthy

    Tim Burton Says DARK SHADOWS Won’t Be 3D

    Tim Burton is at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art right now to present an exhibit that features hundreds of his drawings, paintings, sculptures and films. During an interview, he spoke a bit about his plans for Dark Shadows; notably, they do not include 3D


    ďI have no plans for [3D]. I loved doing ďAliceĒ in 3D. Frankeweenie, gonna do that in 3D. Thereís people like, ĎEverythingís gonna be in 3D,í or ĎI hate 3D!í I think people should have a choice. I donít think it should be forced on anybody. At the same time, itís great, some of it.Ē



    That seems like the right approach, to employ 3D when it suits the project. Weíll see if Warner Bros cooperates with no plans for post-conversion. Production is currently underway in London with stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, and Jackie Earle Haley. Dark Shadows is scheduled for release on May 11, 2012. Read more from Burton after the break.



    Burton spoke to The Wrap about the tone heís chasing on Dark Shadows:




    ďItís been hard to kind of come here because Iím just starting, and itís a weird tone and itís a lot of actors and, you know, weíre not starting with the simple stuff; weíre sort of getting right in there. You like to kind of sneak up on it a little bit, but this one we just kind of slammed right into itÖ

    Iím early into it because itís a funny tone, and thatís part of what the vibe of the show is, and thereís something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, itís pretty bad. Iím hoping that it will be ó itís early days, letís put it ó Iím very intrigued by the tone. Itís a real ethereal tone weíre trying to go for and I donít know yet.Ē



    I havenít seen much of the show, but the images and brief clips I have seen emit that bizarre Gothic quality that Burton is describing (I think). Style and tone are generally among Burtonís strengths, so I find myself travelling slowly up the dark, shadowy hill of anticipation.

    This will be Burtonís eighth collaboration with Depp. The director talked about their artistic bond:


    I just had an immediate connection with him. I didnít know him, but he just felt right for Edward Scissorhands. Weíre friends and colleagues, and weíve always taken the tack of not working together just to work together. Itís got to be the right part, the right movie, all of that sort of thing. Thereís a good sort of non-communicative communication, you know. Because especially back then I was not a good verbal communicator, and heís a bit similar, but thereís more of a psychic kind of connection, I would say, that sort of has remained. I like actors, too, that like to change, become different things. Those are the kinds of actors I find fun and exhilarating to work with.

    Went to the Burton exhibit at LACMA yesterday. Pretty damn cool. Also saw Andy Richter with his family there which made it even cooler.

    I don't know what it is but to me Mars Attacks is hilarious. And Sleepy Hollow is one of if not my favorite Burton film.

    I went to LACMA today just to bum around. The Burton exhibit's line was from the Contemporary Art building's entrance practically all the way to the Ahmanson building.

    I'd definitely recommend advance tickets. They were still selling them at the gate, but they are timed, so you may have to wait 4 hours or so. It's easy to kill time at that complex, but just though it was worth pointing out.

    Not a fan myself, so it didn't bother me to miss it, but had there been no line I might have ponied up the $20 to get in.

    Speaking of which, anyone ever hear anything about a possible Sleepy Hollow reissue on BD? I've heard the current transfer sucks.
