Tim Burton is a work of art himself, everything he does in my eyes, are perfect. For people who don't know who Tim Burton is, let me educate.

Tim Burton is an American film director, producer, artist, writer, and animator. He usually focuses on dark, Gothic themes, although through his work he may come off as if he has a dark personality, but in which he does not. He has stated that

"I am not a dark person and I don't consider myself dark"

And also

"I've always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they'd still say I'm a dark personality."


There are two versions of this movie, first one was made in 1984. This was not animated.

And the 2012 one, which was animated

Now FrankenWeenie is about a dog, and a lonely young boy who is socially awkward. The dog's name is Sparky and the boy's name is Victor. Victor is in love with science, and finds it hard to fit in with people at school, and Sparky is his only friend. But sadly one day Sparky runs onto the road and gets hit by a car, but Victor has a solution, involving science he brings Sparky back to life but there are so many more consequences he didn't think about before he brought Sparky back to life.


Corpse Bride is about a young boy about to get married to a girl in which he has never met. The boy's name is Victor and the girls name is Victoria. Although they hit it off just fine, Victor is a bit nervous about all of it, so he goes and practises his weeding lines on what he believes is an old branch from a tree but he was terribly wrong. It was a hand of a corpse bride. This dark and gloomy movie is actually quite full of sunshine at some points. The way Tim Burton has made this movie is wonderful, he makes the world see a different point of view on things, such as the living seem to be worse than the dead, and that even if in your heart you seem dead, you are not.

And I would love to finish off with a classic


Vincent is a short film and is one of Tim Burton's most creative and greatest films in my opinion. Vincent is a dark character, he is different and isn't like any other person. Within this short film, Tim Burton shows off his poetry. Vincent is only a little boy with a dark mind, he wants to grow up to be just like Vincent Price and by the end of it all he loses himself in macabre daydreams.
