When one thinks of the writer, director, producer, animator, and overall cinematic visionary Tim Burton, what words come to mind? Dark? Mysterious? Fantastic? Twisted? Magical?
All of those words would be correct. Burton has created not only his own style, but essentially his own genre. "Burtonesque" movies have become so distinct, in fact, that just by watching the new trailer for Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, we can immediately tell it's a Burton production.
It's filled with whimsy, riddles, and miraculous children. Through the years, Burton has created almost two dozen movies that encapsulate both the viewer's wildest dreams and their wildest nightmares.
Let's revisit some of his most dazzling creations.
Pee-Wee Herman's love of his life is his bike. After it is stolen, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to get it back. Only Burton could successful make viewers feel intrigued, and a bit put off, by Herman's quirky antics as an extremely childlike man.
The fantastic and slightly hellish world of Jack Skellington is shaken when he stumbles upon a world full of happiness, cheer, and the jolly king himself, Santa Claus. And he also gave us a few wonderful songs.
