One of Hollywood's true auteurs, who carved out a neat little niche for himself. Dark fantasy stories and quirky fairy tales make his oeuvre a blast to explore, though quality between individual entries can be more than a little inconsistent.

It's Burton's style that thrives the film to greater heights. One of the best Burton films I've seen so far, I hope he continues on this path

Not a bad remake by Tim Burton. Plenty of elements from the original return, even so this adaptation is different enough to stand on its own two feet. There are splashes of Burton magic littered throughout the film, though ultimately this is clearly Burton light. It's a fun little diversion, but I prefer his original work.
