All of Tim Burton’s films are centered around an outsider or underdog of sorts that is “strange and unusual,” usually portrayed by Johnny Depp. While this film doesn’t include Johnny, it is certainly strange and unusual. In fact, the trailer leads me to think this might be the most strange and unusual in his current… READ MORE »

And I gotta admit that while I was once psyched about the 3D IMax trip-fest, the clips just seem a little … snoozy. Above, see the White Queen (otherwise known… READ MORE »

The movie will hopefully fill in all those question marks we had with the original movie. Like jeez, why so pissed… READ MORE »

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp!
