You just know a Tim Burton movie when you see it. An angled camera shot pans over suburbia, past a forest of gnarled trees, onto a lonely house on the hill while a dead panned, deep voiced (probably horror icon from the 60’s) narrator introduces us to our protagonist. A pale faced, black haired Johnny-Depp-type protagonist just doesn’t fit in. He is constantly shown affection by a quirky, kind, and probably blonde lady but he is too focused on The Mission to bother with that right now. A Danny Elfman score swells, the fat rich bad guys are defeated, and there are probably stop motion skeletons. Tim Burton has a type, and we love him for it. Today join us in celebrating the wonderful career of Tim Burton.
