Top 10 Tim Burton Films

By Sari N. Kent,

He’s known for his directing and producing both dark and somehow lighthearted motion pictures. Tim Burton’s cinematic genius has produced classic dramas, animated films and actioners and his over 20-year filmmaking relationship with actor Johnny Depp has created some of Hollywood’s most iconic films. He studied animation at the California Institute of the Arts after being awarded a fellowship from Disney. After being discovered by Paul Reubens, aka Pee-Wee Herman, and directing the surprise 1985 hit Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Burton has never stopped! His films often feature the lead character as an outcast with a gothic vibe, but that element hasn’t prevented Burton from breaking cinematic boundaries in both production design and animation. His quirky, offbeat style is sure to keep moviegoers flocking to his films for many years to come. In honor of his 55th birthday today, here is my Top 10 list of Tim Burton movies.
