The Greatest Tim Burton Filmsbrandonburton7
The Top Ten
Oh my God, I'm glad this is at the top of the list. This is the greatest Tim Burton film of all time, and should have been the greatest Johnny Depp film of all time. The story is iconic, creative, colourful, brilliantly-paced and with terrific set pieces that, even in the twenty-first century, are beautiful. The script is also marvellous, every single line seems to be ingeniously chosen as if the writers sat down for hours and used pure ingenuity to come up with quotes that did the characters justice. Johnny Depp has been in so many films and, no thanks to Pirates of the Caribbean, believe that the 2000s were his best era, but that's just insulting. Johnny Depp KILLED IT as Edward Scissorhands - he didn't even have that many lines, but he was amazing: his speech, his mannerisms, the way he moved (Way better than Pirates of the Caribbean), and the fact that he just made the character seem so real. This film is also really funny at times, especially with Johnny Depp using his ...more
First of all, Nightmare Before Christmas was not even directed or written by Tim Burton. He just produced it and came up with the concept while he worked on Batman. But to the point! This movie has to be Tim Burton's deepest and personal film of his. It is a fantastic concept. Tim Burton is letting the world know that it's okay for people to be lonely, just like he needs to be alone in order to create his art. Man, he's such a genius! The movie was beautifully directed and written! Excellent work, Mr. Burton!
Nightmare may be the pure definition of a Burton movie, but Edward Scissorhands has a certain charm about it. This movie is magical, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, all while maintaining that bizarre Tim Burton feeling. Elfman's score is perfection, and the cast is gold. This is where Johnny Depp's Career kickstarted, and where Vincent Price went out with a stellar performance. This is not only my favorite Burton film, but it's one of the best films ever made.
This movie is so romantic and it makes me think Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder should get back together like how they did in the pastV 16 Comments
I love the nightmare before Christmas. I think it's a creative and magical film. I love all the characters especially lock shock and barrel and the songs are good too. It's definitely one of my favorite Tim Burton films. Corpse brides a close second.
This movie(The Nightmare Before Christmas) is a tie with Snow White for here as the best animation feature film have ever seen on the screen. Hoping there is more similar to this in the future. Guessing there are a possible more than 10 Holiday Nightmares as well. Christmas is always first then the others seem to be: Halloween, Thanks Giving, Easter, Independence Day, New Year's Day, Valentine's Day, April Fools, Earth Day and Labor Day. Well built, a rare treat too. - iliescu
There is also a Playstation 2 game made for this feature film. Oogie's Revenge is the name and despite the odd title it is Jack fighting monsters with good graphics and does well to promote the finest in The Nightmare Before Christmas even at the beginning. Now can see why these are so amazing. Good! - iliescu
This movie may have not been directed my Tim Burton, but it has his artistic genius written all over it. Up until today, this stop-motion picture is often regarded as a masterpiece only proving that it might just be Burton's best film in his career.V 20 Comments
I love Batman because it's shot in London and there are some scary scenes that I find fascinating. Plus despite the fact that Tim Burton is not a comic book fan and is more interested in dark fantasies this gave him the opportunity to direct a big blockbuster like this. - Yorkshire2001
Batman is one of the best films ever. Best superhero movie. Great Characters, Plot, Setting, and one of Jack Nicholson's best performances of all time
In my opinion this is the best Batman movie Dark Knight is good but extremely overrated - christangrant
Tim Burton's Batman is way better than Christopher Nolan's Batman. - Yorkshire2001V 2 Comments
My favorite because it's really funny and all the actors and actresses were great and it can be scary and a little weird.
Beetlejuice is an extremely hilarious but creepy film and it's my 2nd favourite Tim Burton film next to Edward scissorhands
Probably not the best but it should at least be in the top ten. its got a great cast as well. Burton is a great director. Michael Keaton is an excellent actor as is Winona Ryder
This movie is about ghosts trying to scare obnoxious new yuppie owners of this house! I love it!V 5 Comments
Amazing movie with a dark tone and great songs! I always sing along on the top of my lungs! And Alan Rickman's voice... just beautiful!
Dark comedy, revenge and bloody violence... All in a musical! So weird you have to love it
I hate "Edward Scissor Hands". I'm sad that it's at the top of the list. My second pick would be Big Fish.
After Edward scissors hand this is the best movie really a unique movie musical movie that inspires me a lotV 6 Comments
Scared the crap out of me. Better than the first.
Why so underrated?
I love Nightmare Before Christmas, yes it's amazing! But I preferred the story in Corpse Bride. I can't remember if Charlie and the Chocolate factory or Corpse Bride was the first Tim Burton movie I've watched. - Oldia
Best movie ever. Very mature story and the unique perspective. I saw this on Netflix. It was recommended to me after I watched the nightmare before Christmas. This is way more mature. It is slightly scary. Never mind. The Halloweenesque style was Frightening in the best most romantic way. I suggest this for 10+ or maybe more if you are sensitive. The music is amazing and the characters are so real and depressing. One character contemplates suicide, one smokes, and one is drunk. And the corpse bride, the saddest most depressed character, was murdered by her fiance. amazing movie. so complex
I loved the movie very much. I loved Victor and Emily.
Yes! I like all his movies. He’s crazy and that’s what makes him great. And I love his dark movies. Corpse Bride is great. I wish it was longer, though.V 4 Comments
Why is this at #10? This is easily Tim Burton's best movie!
Best movie ever from Tim Burton - Yorkshire2001
You expect a movie but with this one hoy get a masterpiece
A little complex but a great story - MatrixGuy
Such great story telling with a touching ending.
This movie was awful. Johnny deposit performance as willy wonka was irritating. And the Charlie in it was bland and under developed.
This is the worst remake I have ever seen for a good movie ever, in my many years of living. This is an embarrassing movie for both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp to partake in. Johnny Depp's character is annoying, cruel, insulting, mean, and boring, while Charlie is undeveloped, has very low character development, is a complete kick in the nuts for true Roald Dahl fans and is overall annoying too. - Awesomedoodlebug244
Probably it is the first movie of Johnny Depp that I watched when I was 5 it was really amazing and Johnny Depp was looking so cute in it
There should at least be another actor besides Johnny Depp who should of played Willy Wonka - Yorkshire2001V 2 Comments
Really great movie and a great acting from Johnny Depp
let me cut your head off please - brandonburton7
What an ending this movie had!
I actually watched this movie today.
🎃It's really good with great special effects and good acting. - Catlover2004
By far Tim's best and one of my favourite films of all time: Pee-Wee's Big Adventure is an experience I'll never forget.
I love this film it brings back the memories for the adults back in the 80's. - Yorkshire2001
This movie is hilarious - Jonerman
Love this movie
Same as charlie: It sucks anal grease
I love Frankenweenie especially Winona Ryder's character. - Yorkshire2001
Awesome movie. It should have been number 3!
OH MY GOD. TNBC and CB I love yes. But this movie is just perfect. I love this movie. It's amazing. I LOVE IT! PLEASE TO TOP 10!
Tim Burton never directed this, but it's still awesome.
One of the most underrated Tim Burton movies and yet, one of his very best!
Mars Attack at 18, this list is a disgrace. It's a hilarious parody. - Agent_Cooper
It's so funny and nearly everyone dies in it.
Burton didn't even direct this...
Tim Burton had nothing to do with it
I know Burton didn't even direct this, but even so, why this film isn't any higher on the list is beyond me. Iti is a pretty colourful, heartful film and is, without any miniscule speck of a doubt, A LOT better than Batman and Robin. I liked Val Kilmer as Batman, I loved Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and Jim Carrey as the Riddler was one of the biggest revelations since Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Where did you go wrong, Schumacher? Where on Earth did you go wrong?
IT WAS JOEL SMUCHER DUMBASS
I absolutely live this movie! Fantasy/Horror movie + Christopher lee AND Johnny Depp AND Alice Cooper = perfection
This was a great movie, not only was it by tim burton, but it has johnny depp in it.
Johnny Depp was looking lovely in it
It was Henry Selick not Tim Burton. - egnomac
Is Kubo a Time Burton Film?
What about Coraline then?
NOPE. EVER HEARD OF LAKIA?
A lot of people got confused because they advertised this film with "from the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas." However, Tim Burton did not direct TNBC. Henry Selick was the director. It is only called a Tim Burton film because he was the producer and wrote the original poem for it. Coraline is still a great film, but not a Tim Burton one. - Elric-san
@Elric-san sorry, but I wasn't talking to you, I accidentally clicked reply, anyway, totally agree with what you said because it's true. - KefkaV 1 Comment
Amazing adaption from the book. Definitely one of the better Tim Burton movies.
Also, the little kid advertising in the comments is no older than 3. - GodFlowey
