    I like his stuff. Plus he's done stuff other than gothic victorian - Batman etc.

    I used to like his stuff, but I'm not so keen now. It's all the same, and even pushing on boring, IMO.

    I think some Tim Burton films such as "The Nightmare Before Christmas" are really good and fun to watch. I have a problem with his non animated films though. It's a bit random I guess, but I always get annoyed at the fake blood in Sweeney Todd and Sleepy Hollow because it's so clearly fake...

    I really like his dark style, Nightmare before Christmas is my fave musical. Corpse Bride is excellent too.

    But I've never seen Edward Scissorhands or 9 yet :sadnod:

    I thought he did a good job with the Batman films. I'm also partial to putting on The Nightmare Before Christmas and joining in with the songs.

    I enjoy his films even though he rips on his visual style off early German cinema in the 1920s, which always annoys me when people go on how visual unique he is. Alice in Wonderland was boring.

    Also this sums up Tim Burton brilliantly

    I like the animation and style, but the singing is gay and really makes his films unwatchable.
