: but like it or not, the guy makes amazing films.
: If you need to lash out, make fun of the way he looks or how ironic it is that the self-proclaimed "outcast" is so full of himself, but leave his work alone. The guy is a genius.
I have to agree, I have yet to be dissapointed with a Burton film (I know you all are thinking "What about mars attacks?" but I used the word dissappointed, everyone knew that one would blow) Tim Burton is plesantly dark, and overexagerates at all the right moments. If Burton had taken on A.I. I feel it could have been as close to Kubrick as it could get. But, despite his great movies his comment was mucho unprofessional expescially coming from someone who stole his haircut from Robert Smith of the Cure. And when Tim Burton can write, direct, and star in 5 movies IN A ROW that are guaranteed cult classics, then he can piss on Kevin Smith's Comic books. And if Burton never reads comics HOW THE F' did he direct Batman and Batman Returns so well. NO man alive could have directed those movies as well as burton did unless they immersed themselves in batman comics.
