Just to kick it off, I've got a question. What were these creepy masks that Barbara and Adam put on in BEETLEJUICE? They're only on screen for a short while, but they scared the crap out of me as a boy.

It's a bit of a coincidence that you started this thread, as I was just watching the trailers for Batman and Batman Returns. The Batman trailer was just awful and poorly done. About your Beetlejuice question though, I can't help you there; I haven't watched the film in ages.

They weren't masks in the film. They morphed their heads into those in order to show Sylvia Sidney that they were capable of making themselves look scary.

You should check out the flick again, good Burton camp and Keaton steals the scenes. He's like a role model for this forum.




Anyway, favorite Burton flick is ED WOOD.

I have never been fan of Burton's visual style. I find it emotionally distant & the dark fairy tale aesthetic doesn't appeal to me. ALICE IN WONDERLAND is especially guilty of that.

But then again I haven't seen ED WOOD or SWEENEY TODD which are supposedly his best films so what do I know.

Burton makes big budget B-movies. What's the point of that?

Burton's Batman films are the best ones, and were definitely worth the effort.

Balderdash. Explain to me how ED WOOD, MARS ATTACKS! and BEETLEJUICE are B-movies in under 200 words. Time starts now.

Well, I want my lunch, and I need to untie Santa before the crabs eat her. Off the top of my head then ...

Ed Wood was a famously incompetent b-movie maker.

Mars Attacks was an expensive amalgam of 50's apocalyptic SF b-movies and bubblegum cards.

Beetlejuice ... er .... not seen it, never will.

Not much of a defence, I concede. I was thinking more of Burton's shallow Hammer retreads such as Sleepy Hollow. Plus if I have to justify half the crap I spout in this place then we're going to be here a very long time.

They're post modern comedies looking fondly back at B-movies, but not B-movies themselves. Big difference. Also, to think of MARS ATTACKS! as simply a 50 sci-fi homage would be seriously missing the point. It's one of the finest films made about Clinton's America™, but it went over everybody's heads at the time.

You may be right, Oh Shark.

Now, I know I came into this forum for something, but what? :scratch:

Sleepy Hollow is my personal fave Burton movie and one of my desert island discs, it just brings everything I like best about his style and humour to a fine balance.

Sleepy Hollow
Batman (1989)
Batman Returns
Beetlejuice
Big Fish

I dislike the animated 'Nightmare' derivatives and despise 'Sweeny Todd' with a passion.

Another link to the trailer for DARK SHADOWS:


Turned out exactly the way I didn't want it to. Marketed as a comedy, FFS. laugh

As for Eva Green, she's getting uglier as the years go on. I'd still stick it between her tits, though, just for the hell of it.

Agreed that the movie is going to get howls of outrage from fans of the series, and deservedly so. They wanted a straight portrayal.. However, I'm not a fan and I thought the trailer was unexpectedly hilarious, Depp was back in fine form after a regrettable performance in THE TOURIST and RUM DIARY, and Eva Greene was smoking hot and never looked better. Greene shows some comedic chops in this movie. I may end up seeing it.
