Some things are better left dead.
I remember in 1985, when Pee Wee dazzled us with Burton's quirkiness, it was different and fun. The years passed by 1992 (Batman Returns) it was clear Burton had one formula (make us feel sad for Pee Wee, Beetlejuice, Edward, Bruce) and you either loved it or just got tired of emo-goth-dark anti-hero and just wanted them gone. I was the latter, After a Nightmare Before Christmas, I stopped watching Burton movies until 2001's Planet of the Apes--it didn't empress, but I am fair, gave Burton another chance with Charlie and the 'why did give this guy another chance' Factory. Frankenweenie, has got to be the worse of the worse of Burton films I have seen. It lacks creatively, humor, story, fun...I guess this is another 9 years of putting Burton out of sight/out of mind.
