It’s showtime! With the upcoming release of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children later this month, it was finally time for us to dive into the filmography of Tim Burton… his early filmography, that is. We decided to revisit his movies from the mid-’80s through to the late ’90s from Peewee’s Big Adventure to Sleepy Hollow (minus the Batman movies, which we’ve covered previously). Along the way we discuss his partnerships with Johnny Depp and Danny Elfman, his love of kitsch and gothic horror, his use of stop motion animation and practical effects, and his transition from quirky auteur to blockbuster veteran. So how much influence did Burton’s collaborators have on his style? Is there a specific moment where he sold his soul to Hollywood? Is Beetlejuice chock full of plotholes and inconsistencies? Is Mars Attacks underrated or underwhelming? Most importantly, is there a cure for Frank’s Timburculosis? Turn on the juice and see what shakes loose on this month’s premium podcast below.
