This week’s we’re discussing the movie oeuvre of Tim Burton, one of Hollywood’s biggest iconoclasts and a man who never met a dark castle he couldn’t make darker, a part that Johnny Depp couldn’t play, or a comb. From his earliest work to upcoming projects (and we’re trying to wrap our heads around what Tim Burton’s Dumbo will be like), we’re celebrating the work of American cinema’s cool but kinda creepy uncle. It’s Showtime!
Hollywood releases roughly 248,000 movies every year, and about 10 of them are any good. It might seem that literally any movie will be released as soon as the first scene is shot, but that isn’t the case at all. Many movies are planned – or even start filming – yet never make their way to America’s multiplexes.
So let’s celebrate the cinematic masterpieces/disasters that never saw the light of day. Michael, Richard and Jeff are ready to roll action, and we’re hoping the studio isn’t asking for major rewrites.
