Among American Movie Directors Today,
Tim Burton is The Greatest


(Note:  I didn't expect to compose a bloggie this morning; being Saturday & all,  plus Leti and I have alot to do to get ready for Thanksgiving here at the Malcontent mansion, and then I go cut, load firewood with a friend later on-)


That being said, we love Tim Burton's movies.


We love the offbeat sense of strange which he mixes liberally in his films:

"Beetlejuice", "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", "Mars Attacks",  "Nightmare Before Christmas", "Sweeney Todd", "Batman", "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter", etc., etc., etc.


So, we both look forward with big, expectant eyes for his next film, "Big Eyes". 

The reviews are thrilling, considering that this film will be somewhat of a first for Burton, as it will be in an Un-Burton style. "Big Eyes" is the true story of an artist who paints portraits of children with big eyes, and the struggle that she endures when her new husband takes over the claim of authorship from her, to keep the paintings' popularity at a peak.

While the reviews as I said are thrilling, so is the trailer, inasmuch as it is REALLY hard, imagining that Tim Burton is the director.  Is Tim Burton reaching a level of maturity which would abandon his former niche, his former territory wherein he IS the Alpha Male?  I hope not, so much.

For someday, I'd like to see Tim Burton's take, on video of the Bizarre, Grotesque Obama Years. 
~With Danny Elfman again, composing that film's music, naturally!
