People are stupid enough to remake their own films?



Anyways, AIW was a boring piece of crap. But those costumes and the art direction were some of the best I've seen in film. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was completely stupid and made me want to send an letter of apology to Roald Dahl's widow. I liked Sweeney Todd, but I was ignorant that another ST existed before the recent one. NBC is very good; wasn't that the last original thing he made? That was what, in what mind as well have been 1970. It's so long ago

Anyways, the trailer looks like the same regurgitated swill starring Johnny Depp that he is known for.

/This is me being nice.

Might just be me..
I'm glad I wasn't the only one seeing things. I kept checking other boards to see if there was a correct edit of the film someplace, but it's like that in all versions.

He also pulled a total **** block on any chances for American Mcgee to get started on his CGI flick due to conflicts and licensing issues. Now we'll never see it.

Oh for crying out loud...

The only thing I dislike are the Oompa Loompas in that movie. So disgusting.
Still I love the movie and the original as well.

I was in the mood for American Mcgee/Madness Returns at the moment, and this breaks my heart. </3 ;_;

Aparently this is more in tone with Sleepy Hollow than any of his newer movies and has been wildly falsely advertised. I like Burton but his faded colour Palet is getting a little redundant.

Probably some sort of tortured outcast soul type person who has had some sort of seperation from society and tries to adapt to a new situation like he does in every one of his Tim Burton movies...

I miss old Burton.
Frankenweenie was a shortfilm that's being adoptated for a full-length feature film, I honestly don't see the problem love to see that on the big screen. Plus capitalizing on Nightmare's stop motion, while I do think Tim Burton is to some extend doing it now with this "remake", I don't blame him for it. It's a beautifull and, sadly, a dying art. Everytime I see a real Stop Motion movie come by, I see it in theature's even if it sucks, I can really appriciate the art.

And the "old" Tim Burton never left, it's still the exact same Burton and that's the problem. He never changed even the slighest, really only the (awfull) remake of: Planet of the Apes, was a real change in direction. Other then that every single time I see a Burton movie I know what I'm in for, and almost all of the time also I know which actor's I'm in for which annoys me even more...

Like always, himself but a slightly more muted version because he's a vampire...

There is a lot wrong with him touching Frankenweenie. Especially considering the style of the original is lost with stop-motion.

And no, the old Burton is gone.
