Famous for: Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Sweeney Todd Who Is Tim Burton? Dark Shadows Review "A lot of things you see as a child remain with you…you spend a lot of your life trying to recapture the experience" "There is an energy with stop-motion that you can’t even describe. It’s got to do with giving things life, and I guess that’s why I wanted to get into animation originally. To give life to something that doesn’t have it is cool, and even more so in three dimensions, because, at least for me, it feels even more real."

The ending is so lame it's disheartening. Surely anyone clever enough to dream up Edward Scissorhands should be swift enough to think of a payoff that involves our imagination." Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel "The world of the dead, on the other hand, is where you'd want to spent your vacation. It's livelier, cheerier and with brighter colours." Roger Ebert "Big Fish turns into a wide-eyed Southern Gothic picaresque in which each lunatic twist of a development is more enchanting than the last," Big Fish Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly The Death Of Oyster Boy and Other Melancholy Stories The Boy with Nails in his Eyes
