Tim Burton Ranked

Tim Burton has been giving audiences diminishing returns as the years have gone by, but 2012 saw him release at least one really solid effort. (Albeit a bit of a retread.) I have always considered his films as “must sees,” and have only missed one feature to date. Here is my list of Burtons, ranked from best to worst.

The Good: 
(These are the top ten, the ones I really like. The top three are really interchangeable.)

1. “Batman” (1989) *****

2. “Big Fish” (2003) *****

3. “Sleepy Hollow” (1999) *****

4. “Edward Sissorhands” (1990) *****

5. “Frankenweenie” (2012/1984) *****/*****

6. “Beetlejuice” (1988) ****

7. “Vincent” (1982) ****

8. “Batman Returns” (1992) ****

9. “Ed Wood” (1994) ****

10. “Dark Shadows” (2012) ****

The “Bad”: 
(These are the reviled, but most of them still have something to offer. Some are even entertaining.)

11. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005) ****

12. “Planet of the Apes” (2001) ****

13. “Alice in Wonderland” (2010) ***

14. “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” (1985) ***

15. “Sweeney Todd” (2007) **

The “Ugly” 
(This one is just bad.)

16. “Mars Attacks” (1996) **

Yet to See 

“Corpse Bride” (2005)
