This one was very close, but one film pulled out ahead in the end. Your favorite Tim Burton film is . . .
Confession is good for the soul—apparently—so I thought I’d get this off my chest: I saw Edward Scissorhands years ago, and I didn’t much care for it at the time. I am a Tim Burton fan, even if I occasionally get frustrated with him, but for some reason I didn’t really connect to this odd little fairytale at all. I do keep a list of movies I think deserve a second chance, so at some point I suspect I will try this one out again. (Along with Big Fish, which got some high praise in the comments section, but I found . . . decidedly lacking something.)
Tied for a close second place is Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow, both of which I enjoyed a tremendous amount. Third place is also a tie between the aforementioned Big Fish and the macabre musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Corpse Bride, Ed Wood, Batman, and Batman Returns all tied for last place with one vote each.
There were no comments cursing me for not including Planet of the Apes or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in this poll. Although, third confession of the day: I actually kind of like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Ha!
Planet of the Apes, though . . . yeah, not so much.
Cause, seriously? What the hell?

I liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory too even though it had that stupid rock sequence with the oompa loompas. I was once known to listen to the Augustus Gloop song before work each day.
I’d say that the ending of Edward Scissorhands is far worse than the ending to Planet of the Apes.
What am I missing? Seriously….
